With the popularity in our first run of the “Know where you came from” beacon hill shirts, we decided to do another run before xmas. This time around, we managed to sell both mens and womens T’s and ….AND..cant forget the babies; we sold onesies as well. Truely, we thank all our supports with Namsayin. We managed to sell quickly. It surprises me what type of following we have;and its a wide variety. We appreciate everyone an anyone who came by Deli the two days before xmas.
We had a couple come in and look at our shirts. They were so excited that they decided to take pics on their phones to send it to their friends in philly and new jersey; also from the southside as well. They decided to buy more shirts to bring back East to their fellow southsiders.
Over the years, we’ve had always the love and support from our friends. Here are some of our friends that we share the action, laugh and lifestyle with.
Stay tuned for our next shirt design and updates. We have more planned for our city……… keep watching….and thank you to max and rob from deli for the love and support. 2011 is not Namsayins year, its time for Seattle to be put on the map!
Home, a home away from home, your birthplace, your hood, it’s where i grew up, Hillside, The Hill. Whatever you’d like to call it; it’s where majority of us with Namsayin grew up. Being an 80s baby, ive seen it all. From the kids riding their bikes on the center walking way on Beacon Ave, to the avenue being a main strip for meet ups with car clubs; lowriders (lolos) or mini-trucks; even being a race way for emerging import racing scenesters. It was a central spot for people to come and gather.
Growing up there was 3 options getting around on beacon; walk, ride your bike or take the bus. Never did we walk. Seldom rode our bicycles, but we’d often take the bus. While on the bus, I’d stare out of the windows; watch the trees pass by; see the kids playing at Jefferson Park; It was a familiar routine for many of us Beacon Hillers, but it built character in the individuals who sat in the ghetto limousine, but it was our ghetto limousine.
We will be releasing a shirt dedicated to the friends/family. This is for my hood. This is for the ghetto limousine riders and of course one to unite our locals. Tomorrow we will announce the release date, location and time of our “Know where you came from.” shirt. Incase you forgot what it looks like. Here’s my brother modelling the shirt. Check our site tomorrow for the info.
Clint tells a story about a time when he got GOT!!!! In seattle we drink. Seattle drinks like no other. Here’s clint’s story. Btw if you dont know …..we love the crown royale.
As you may have heard, second-to-the-top in the nation (behind Best Buy) electronics store Circuit City recently announced that, due to a butt load of debt and unsuccessfully finding a new owner, they’re closing their doors for good after being in business for 60 years. Sad. Very sad, and frightening at the same time, reminding us all of the reality of this current economic crisis. So since they are going out of business don’t miss out on a great opportunity to score on some huge discounts as the days pass and reach the day of March 31, 2009, as this day will be there last and final day of business.
Being native from the 808 state, I was super excited to hear that a local restaurant opened up in Seattle, WA where i reside now…the famous conveyor belt sushi place..GENKI SUSHI. I just had to try it out and see if it’s just like back at home<3
The restaurant was nice, they did a really nice job on the inside. There was a wall full of white fish head statues that greeted us as we walked in.
spicy tuna roll
garlic mayo seared salmon
spicy tempura roll with a strawberry RAMONE
ikura aka salmon eggs aka nemo
All in all the food was pretty good…but the service sucked ass! We didn’t even know who our waitress was because no waitress even checked to see if we needed anything. I had to keep calling em and asking for things before they even thought about asking if we needed wasabi first off! THEN i had to ask for my hot tea when the hostess said someone will be bringing our waters and hot tea right away…whatever… OH and i was craving for ikura but for $4.80 for just a pinch of it…no thank you. This place was kind of a disappointment. I’m sad to say that it’s from the islands…
Would I ever go back? Maybe if their service gets better i will, but as for now probably not…
