Good Neighbors

The International District is a diverse community full of interesting neighbors. Case in point: one of the newest members, seven-week old Ketel, furry friend of Momo customer Erik with a K. As the weather warms, no doubt you will spot the adorable mini Schnauzer strolling the streets, towing his equally charming owner at the end of the leash. Happy summer, indeed.

We Be Jammin’

JamFest is back, starting this Saturday and will be held the third Saturday of May, June, July and August. The Wing Luke’s music festival is like a progressive dinner, with Jazz as an app at one International District restaurant, and folk for a main at another. Learn more at the Wing’s website by clicking on the link above. This time around, Momo will be open until 7:00, so stop by if you’re strolling through.
