December Phinneywood ArtUp Art Walk

Please join us this Friday, December 12th, for a very special art walk!
All art at this month’s Art Walk will be made by local children. Kids will be hanging art and/or performing for the December 12th Art Walk at Salon Mercury. A percentage of art sales will benefit the writing and tutoring center, 826 Seattle/Greenwood Space Travel Supply.
This is the time for all of our brilliant and talented children to shine and share their talents and creativity for a great cause.

Happy Almost Halloween!

It’s really beginning to look a lot like Fall out there, just in time for all the fun Halloween events.

Just one week from today is the Hunger Goblin Daylight Safe Trick Or Treat – we’ll be handing out candy and checking out all the kids (and adults!) in their super awesome costumes!

Please be aware that Isabella will be handing out candy, and so will not be taking haircut appointments from noon on that day.

Also, please be aware that Sean will not be in the salon on Thursday, October 23rd through Saturday, October 25th, as he will be out of town.

October Events

Happy Fall, everyone! We’re still enjoying the summery weather, but looking forward to our Autumn events.

Next week on Friday, October 10th is the monthly Art Walk from 6-9. Come join us to meet artist Pam Randall, and see her mixed media collage art featuring the Seattle skyline.

We are also planning in participating in the Greenwood/ Phinney Daylight Safe Trick or Treat event, Hunger Goblin’.
This is a popular annual event along the Greenwood/Phinney corridor – costumed children are welcome from 12-3 pm on Saturday, October 25th for daytime trick or treating.

Next month we’ll be busy getting ready for the holidays!

Upcoming Events

Summertime is a busy time for us in so many ways!

Next week, on Friday, August 8th, is our August Art Walk from 6-9 pm.

The following day, Saturday, August 9th, is PhinneyWood Summer Streets from 11 am – 5 pm. This should be a fun event, very similar to the neighborhood “Night Out” block parties that happen on the first Tuesday of every August.
This means that just like a block party, our street will be closed to vehicles for Summer Streets, from 67th to 87th, from about 10 am – 6 pm. This makes for a great time for the neighborhood, but please be aware that you won’t be able to drive or park on Greenwood/Phinney that day.

Summertime is also Vacation Time!

Sean will be on vacation August 24th until September 2nd. That means his last day in the salon before he’s gone for a week and a half will be Saturday, 8/23. His first day back will be Wednesday, 9/3.

Isabella will also be on vacation around the same time, from August 28th until September 10th. So her last day in the salon will be Wednesday August 27th, and she will return on Thursday, September 11th.

We hope you’re all enjoying this beautiful summer as much as we are!

22nd Annual Greenwood Car Show this Saturday!

Don’t forget, this coming Saturday, June the 28th, is the annual Greenwood Car Show.
The show starts at 8 am and ends at 4 pm, but the street closes early (5 am) and doesn’t open back up until late (7 pm). You can cross Greenwood at 85th and 80th, but otherwise, there’s no driving on our street, just walking.

While the salon will technically be open, please keep in mind that some of the stylists may not be working for part or all of the day. The car show is a lot of fun, and has lots of things to do besides look at cars, including a pancake breakfast, live music and a kid’s zone, with a bouncy slide and pony rides.
Have fun everyone!

Art Walk success and upcoming events

The Art Walk was a HUGE success!
artupchowdownsignThank you to everyone who came out this busy evening and joined us for our grand opening event!

We got the sign installed just in time:
MERCURY

We will be participating in the regular monthly art walks, the next one will be Friday, June 13th.

Our next really BIG event will be the Greenwood Car Show. The Car Show takes place on the last Saturday of June every year. This year the date will be June 28th. The Car Show stretches from Greenwood and 67th all the way north to 87th – we will be right in the middle!
If you are planning on coming to see us that day, please be aware that the street is blocked off for this all day event. You may cross Greenwood at 80th and 85th, but Greenwood itself is closed off from 5 am until 7 pm. The Car Show is an amazing event, and you will have the perfect opportunity to check it out before or after you visit us. Also, please be aware that some of our stylists may choose to take that day off, or limit their hours, but others will be on their regular schedule and/or taking walk-ins.

Happy Art Walk Day!
