Happy Birthday, Superman!

Just had to say, you are looking quite fine for a gent of 70.
I guess steel is the new 35?
70 years ago, Superman first appeared in Action Comics #1 (thank you, Joe!).

The rest…is history…(in vogue!)

This week has been a maelstrom of activity at NW Limited…History in VogueTM!
Box building, finishing 8, count ’em, 8 Beatles pieces, an Evel Knievel and a Yoda, and still managing to squeeze in a trip to the Emergency Room!

The Fest for Beatles begins Sunday, June 28, and that means packed and leaving on Friday morning.
Yes, it’s the thrill of the open road, and those lucky attendees to the Fest for Beatles at the Mirage Hotel and Casino!  If you live in the Las Vegas area, or will be visiting, this is a rare opportunity for you to see for yourself the best kept secret in the Northwest.

This means that we won’t be at our usual Sunday Market spot (Wah-wah-WAH), however we WILL be back the following weekend.
Stay tuned for who’s going to Vegas with us, and perhaps the odd report from the event.

Hanging at the Company Store

Columbia River Coffee Roasters‘ Company Store is now open at the site of Uniontown’s newly remodeled Finnish Meat Market building (most recently the home to Shanghaied in Astoria)!

Don’t be so dazzled by the fresh paint and windows that you forget to step inside the new Company Store opened by Columbia River Coffee Roaster owners Tim Hurd and Nancy Montgomery:

  <—Look what’s here!

 They’ve got great WiFi access, too!
Annnd….soon to come, a filtered water fountain where you can re-fill your water bottle. Nice!!!
Just one more (important) reason to love Columbia River Coffee Roaster:

We also believe strongly in the notion that one’s work should build one’s community, so we put a high percentage of our profits into the local arts scene, specifically The River Theater in Astoria, a vibrant venue for diverse performing arts.”

NW Limited…History in VogueTM wishes you great success in your newest venue!

The beautiful windows and the rarely blue sky in Astoria

Though they are open for business, now, the official grand opening is scheduled for July 5, 2008, and everyone’s welcome!
