1. After announcing plans late last year to take over a historic space in Woodinville that has housed watering holes for more than seven decades, Josh Henderson is set to open the doors of Hollywood Tavern next Tuesday, November 12. Styled after a classic roadside tavern, but souped up with fire pits and cornhole, the whiskey and burger spot’s menu also includes fresh pasta and soft serve for the kids. Executive Chef Angie Roberts (BOKA, Flying Fish, W Hotel) leads the kitchen crew. Woodinville Whiskey is scheduled to launch its new distillery on the premises later this year.
