Lots of news from our Wallingford small businesses this week.
New signs for Patty’s Eggnest went up on the Rancho Bravo Tacos building at 211 NE 45th St. I’m a huge fan of their tacos, so I inquired. The cashier working didn’t know anything about it, but according to the Patty’s Eggnest website, they have a new Wallingford food truck location opening soon. Based on the signs posted, I’m guessing they are moving into the food truck located in Rancho Bravo’s parking lot.
Wine World & Spirits is having a moving sale. No word on when the move is happening, nor have they announced where they are moving to.
Friday Afternoon, a geeky-themed tea shop, is working out permits and tentatively scheduled to open at 4228 Stone Way N some time in late August or early September.
This has been posted before on Wallyhood, but The Drum Exchange will be closing at the end of August. An update from the owners:
We hope to continue our drum/percussion lesson program in some capacity within the Wallingford neighborhood. Updates will be posted on our website: drumexchange.com.

Preesha Threading Salon is now open at 4604 Stone Way N, right next to the Baseball Barber Shop.
Wallyburger is finally open. I haven’t been, but the inside looks cozy. On the Wallyhood forums, Ffej says:
“Tried Wallyburger a couple of weeks ago, and it was excellent.
Specifically, the Folsom Prison Bleu burger. Perfectly done, both burger and bacon were tender, and it was just the right size — wasn’t so huge that I had to take some home in a doggy bag.
Very friendly staff, too. The 50’s TV cowboy styling is fine — I like their choice of Western film posters on the wall.
Haven’t tried the fries yet — will do that next time. But Wallyburger has replaced Blue Moon Burger and Red Mill as my burger go-to spot.”
