Spice Corner -- open?

I noticed this thread:

But there was no follow-up.

Is the Spice Corner currently open?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

  1. I was by there last Tuesday and it was still closed with a sign on the door that intimated the city was somehow screwing with them.

    1. Still closed as of yesterday.

      1. I was talking to another vendor in the market and the story he told me is that L&I has been "cracking down" on some of the merchants down there. Apparently the city is saying that Spice Corner needs to get a restaurant license because they make their own spice blends, and the owner is fighting it rather than complying. From the sound of it, I wouldn't expect them back any time soon.
