As part of a recent contest, we asked readers to name their favorite spots to take families before or after a trip to the Woodland Park Zoo, either in surrounding Phinney Ridge or nearby. Their responses fell into four categories: restaurants, parks, shops and entertainment venues. Some of the spots they mentioned are well known (like Red Mill Burgers, which was called out by many readers), some less so.

We gave away four free zoo passes to one reader, chosen at random (congratulations to Michelle, who frequents Taproot Theatre). And now we give to you this reader-generated list of 25 fun places to visit in Phinney Ridge and nearby neighborhoods, including Greenwood and Green Lake.

Keep your eyes peeled next week for another ArtsPage giveaway.
