Imagine buying a brand new home in Issaquah for $89,000.

It is a price from a bygone era. Now, however, that same figure is the minimum bid for five new condominiums in the Issaquah Highlands that builder D.R. Horton will auction Dec. 7.

Depending on size, starting bids for the others range from $99,000 to $129,000. At the $89,000 end, you get 580 square feet; for $129,000, you can stretch out in 1,059 square feet. Read more

The first thing I noticed when seated were the most cushiony, comfortable booths I’ve ever sat in at a restaurant. Read more

Gaslamp: A sports bar and so much more

December 4, 2008

To me, Gaslamp Bar & Grill is really a hometown café, thinly disguised as a sports bar.

True, the decor — large TVs, pool tables, neon beer signs and hanging sports memorabilia — gives the impression that this is a place to hunker down with a basket of chicken wings and a brew while catching the game. And it is. But what self-respecting sports bar serves prime rib? And good prime rib at that? Read more
