ALSO ONLINE TONIGHT: Ethiopian Community in Seattle celebration

Thanks to Brenda for sending this:

With all the smoke and people staying inside today, I wanted to share another online event that is happening this evening. The Ethiopian Community in Seattle is having a virtual event tonight to replace their annual gala. Yesterday was Ethiopian New Year; Ethiopians follow the Coptic calendar, which is 7 years behind the Julian calendar, making it the year 2013.

There will be entertainment, and admission to the event is free. We have a sizable Ethiopian population in West Seattle so wanted to pass this along.

The event link is here. If you choose to donate, you can do that here.

    Does anybody out there know what happened to Mulu Abate? He and his mother were running Pan Africa, on California Ave (now New Luck Toy), a few years ago. He had a sandwich shop, Lovage, near the Showbox on 1st Ave, but that shut down a couple years ago and now I’ve lost track of him. His Ethiopian food was fantastic, his family is really sweet and they also taught great cooking classes out of the back of Pan Africa.

      Looks like he’s doing catering.  He’s on

        Thank you! I knew he was catering out of the Phinney Community Center once upon a time but this is a helpful connection. Much appreciated!

Sorry, comment time is over.
