Here is a brand new item we are featuring for the entire month of September!

The combination of grilled chicken and fresh spinach make this entree a wonderful, healthy choice, without sacrificing great flavor. The chicken breast is charbroiled with our homemade greek sauce of olive oil, herbs, lemon & garlic and then topped with fresh sauteed spinach and feta cheese and baked in the oven just enough to melt all the flavors together. The chicken is then finished with a delicate topping of our homemade lemon sauce and is served with a side of steamed vegetables and oven-roasted Greek red potatoes. Enjoy a small Greek salad with some of our tasty garlic bread ahead of time.


Suggested Wine: Makedonikos White Wine


We are happy to announce that we will be hosting the 4th annual benefit dinner to raise money for the local non-profit, Support Officers, on Monday, October 12th with two dinner seatings at 5pm and 7pm.

This wonderful organization is a group of dedicated volunteers that respond to critical 911 calls and offer much needed support to families affected by tragedy.

By attending this dinner, you will enjoy being served by Whatcom County's finest law enforcement officers, firefighters and paramedics. But don't worry, Five Columns will be doing the cooking!

Your dinner options include Salmon, Greek Ribs or Braised Lamb and all proceeds directly benefit Support Officer Community Care.

Tickets will be available soon for purchase in person at Five Columns or online after September 7th at

Join us for a great cause and a great evening!

PLEASE HELP - Soula's off to Jail!

Well, sort of...

Soula Christopoulos is volunteering in this year's March of Dime's "Jail & Bail" fundraiser and we need your help to bail her out and get her back to work! On September 10th, she is sentenced to turn herself in and do 1 hour in "jail" but in the meantime, she needs to raise her bail money to help the March of Dimes. This great cause works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

It's easy to donate. Just go to and visit her personal fundraising page and track her progress.

Thank you so much for your help!
