Introducing a piece of the Lake-to-Bay Loop

October 17th, 2012

Last Friday I heard from SDOT that people would be able to walk across the West Thomas Street overpass by the end of the day. I haven’t had the experience of making that walk yet, but that doesn’t dampen my enthusiasm about the project’s completion. I’m so glad it’s open. The West Thomas Street Overpass […]

September 24th, 2012

KEXP – Powering Up at Seattle Center

September 16th, 2011

I am proud to say that “I power KEXP.” KEXP taught me that Fleet Foxes are not indigenous to Discovery Park and Built to Spill is not a code violation. Great music truly does build great community.

September 9th, 2011

Seattle Center measures its success by how well it fulfills its mission of engaging a rich and varied community, and even the most casual of visitor crossing the campus understands the accuracy of that statement. As a visitor onto the campus, you might marvel at the acrobatic moves of a teen skater in the skate […]

New jobs & an economic boost via proposed Seattle Tourism Improvement Area initiative

August 15th, 2011

One week ago, I asked the “Question of the Week” via my Facebook page. We are at the peak of Seattle’s summer and I inquired, “Where do you take your out of town guests?” Answers varied on what constituted the hidden gems – perhaps the places or things an average Seattle visitor wouldn’t know to […]

Seattle Center debuts Flavor of the Fair

June 23rd, 2011

Today’s drizzly conditions don’t exactly reaffirm the arrival of summer and the trappings that come with it. At least Seattle Center has news on some new “tastes of summer” that honor the legacy of the 1962 World’s Fair. It’s part of the effort leading into next year’s 50th anniversary of the event, called The Next […]
