Rich Hazzard heads 17,000 Solutions, a research, consulting and design lab based out of Everett that is helping to improve the function of public schools.
1. FAVORITE PLACE IN EVERETT TO TELL FRIENDS ABOUT?
The Lab @ Everett is a place for ideas to come to life. From consulting to working with 3D printers, everything you need to get your designs and further your entrepreneurial spirit is under one roof.
We checked out The Lab @ Everett before it opened last year.
2. FAVORITE PLACE IN EVERETT TO GET OUTSIDE?
The Everett Farmers Market is a fantastic way to get outside from June to October. The Market recently moved to Downtown Everett between Hewitt and Wall and we couldn’t be happier.
3. FAVORITE PLACE IN EVERETT HANDS DOWN.
Located in an old speakeasy, The Loft Coffee Bar serves up hot shots and nitro tap cold brew. You might even get a chocolate covered coffee bean with your order. Settle into one of their leather armchairs and get some work done or just relax with some afternoon joe.
We visited The Loft when they opened in 2016.
4. FAVORITE ANNUAL EVENT IN EVERETT?
Vintage rides fill downtown Everett every Memorial Day weekend for this event honoring 1950s Everett car culture. The Cruze has grown drastically since its inception in 1999.
We wrote about the 20th anniversary of Cruzin’ to Colby this year.
We also walked around the show.
5. FAVORITE HIDDEN GEM IN EVERETT?
Tampico’s has been serving up Mexican food in Everett since 1987 in their Broadway location. Rich says they have the best salsa in town. Have you tried it?
