Went here last weekend with my buddy Doug. Food is very good made even better because Doug paid. Beer was cold. Very laid back place, great staff without being a pain in the arse.

I’ve been going here with my Dad once a week for about a month now.
How do I describe Waids? Lets just say I lower the median age by about 25 years as I walk in the door. Its very near a retirement village so they cater to a more mature customer. Notice I didn’t say old?
Food is… Well they have food there. Actually its not bad just rather bland, have the salt shaker handy. (see above)
Also disregard the sign at night. It lights up but the W is burned out so it reads
Maybe someone can explain this one to me, Lees Summit is full of places to eat but each week Dad wants to go to Waids? Its not the food trust me. Maybe he just feels comfortable there? Maybe the waitresses are polite and let him chew their ear off? I’ve no idea on this one.
Any help on this one? Anyone… Anyone? 6 years ago
I have for sure added all the popular places that people are likely to go eat. However I may have forgot a few auto dealers and repair shops which I could care less about. Out of all these places I have added, I think that only one other 43’er has added one of these places to their list. I’ll bet this would have been more useful to people if I added more places to a more popular neighborhood, but I’m just stuck up here in Maple Leaf. 6 years ago
I added 60 or so places these last 2 days, but there are still more. Some of the places I didn’t take a picture or enter the address, so more work must be done. Maybe I’m 60% done at this point. 7 years ago
A couple days ago I went on a bike ride and took a bunch of pictures of businesses in the Maple Leaf neighborhood. There are now 59 places, but I know I still need to add some more. I also looked online for the technical boundary of Maple Leaf, and saw that the Northgate Mall is actually considered part of Maple Leaf. However I chose to omit the mall since I think a majority of people consider Northgate Mall in a neighborhood of itself. 7 years ago
I suppose I will use CHECK-INS for this goal! 7 years ago
There’s more value overall in me building out my officehood in the West End7 years ago
I need a plan on this one…
Should I take cell photos of each place I mark…??
Should I text myself at check in to actually have the places all tagged?? Hmmm? Thinking! 7 years ago
Had a few extra coins in my pouch this week and decided to treat myself. Made the long four block journey to Filling Station BBQ.
I usually get a combo sandwich beef and ham. Very lean meat,nice smoked flavor. Sauce is a bit on the sweet side but has a nice kick to it. Owner is a cutie. Go! 7 years ago
I spent another hour on the scooter this morning taking the final pictures of places in Squire Park. I may have missed a few … but maybe not.
Most interesting discoveries are that there are at least 8 ethiopian restaurants (I’m still tagging them) and 15 churches. I couldn’t believe how many churches within one neighborhood! There’s a covered outdoor basketball court (this is Seattle afterall) that I’d forgotten about. The Wonder Bread Factory is being torn down right now to make way for condos. There’s a good number of places to get waxed or airbrushed nails (always good to know). I discovered a park that I didn’t know existed. And I’m thinking of taking my next bit of tailoring work to Righteous Threads—another discovery.
I started this adventure with about 30 places located in Squire Park and ended up today with 154. 7 years ago
I drove around for about 2 hours on my scooter last night taking pictures of every destination around the perimeter of Squire Park. I stayed up late and got up early to upload about 100 more places with pictures and addresses. I learned a lot about the neighborhood—there are places here I never imagined. And I was reminded of a few favorite spots.
All that’s left is riding down the residential streets to catch all the parks and ramdom businesses that are tucked away in the residential areas. This is a strangely fun excercise. 7 years ago
Following Daniel’s lead, this will be a good way of getting to know my neighborhood a little better. Especially with the new design that we’re launching soon. And it seems like the perfect little task for a lazy Sunday afternoon after brunch and bloody marys. 7 years ago
Last night I was checking out the new 43 Places neighborhood page for Squire Park and noticed there were missing photos of some of my favorite spots in the neighborhood. So I set out this morning to take some snapshots on my scooter on the way into work. I figured there could only be a handful of places in Squire Park, a largely residential and small neighborhood by Seattle standards. But driving around I realized there may be 100+ destinations (businesses, hospitals, parks, etc.). That blew my little Squire Park mind.
I’m going to commit to getting every single destination in Squire Park on the site in the coming weeks. This includes a place page with a picture of every business, church and park in the area. I’m predicting lots of picture outings—perhaps street-by-street. 7 years ago
