Shopping: Tuesdays in Ballard

Shop hot summer deals, eat great and stay late during the nabe’s special Tuesday night promotions

Tuesdays are typically a bit blasé. It is still four very long days until the next weekend, and the previous weekend’s rest and respite is already long forgotten. To wit, it is with a great big, hearty cheer we welcome back Tuesdays in Ballard, starting tonight July 13th. 

Ballard business owners are resurrecting last summer’s popular neighborhood night out, running special happy hours and specials at faves like Balmar, Cupcake Royale (free coffee with cupcake!) and newbie Savour’s complimentary wine tasting from 4 pm to 7 pm. 

Along with grub, area boutiques will be staying open late to offer discounts on summer merchandise: this week, roll the dice at Laura Bee Designs to luck out on a varying percent discount on handbags, accessories and jewelry and Classic Consignment is offering deals up to 50% on already discounted designer duds. Participating retailers and restaurants will change weekly with new deals every week, so check in at and rid yourself of the Tuesday doldrums once and for all.
