Hunger gets a new tenant

August 24th, 2012 by Sara

HA! Is the new restaurant in the old Hunger spot. Named for a woman with a distinctive laugh and painted bright colors (reds and oranges, almost ombre-like) by Fremont-favorite Daly’s, the American with a splash of Mexican spot is hoping to open in mid-September. Serving 3 squares a day, the aim is a fun and delicious place to dine. Looking forward to it!

Blocks party all over Seattle tonight in honor of National Night Out

August 7th, 2012 by Sara

Tonight is Night Out Against Crime, a national event that brings neighbors together with block parties all over the city in an effort to heighten crime prevention.  If you are planning to celebrate with your neighbors, Terrie Johnston, North Precinct Block Watch Coordinator, has the following reminders:
•Please remember that arterials, bus routes and intersections cannot be blocked, and that your street closure can only cover a single block.
 •You must put barriers at the ends of the streets to be blocked, and display signs indicating this is a Night Out event and the hours the street will be closed.
 •The City does not provide barriers, so you need to come up with something on your own.  Most people use sawhorses, garbage or recycling cans, folding chairs, etc.  DO NOT BLOCK THE STREET WITH CARS!
 •Designate a few neighbors to keep an eye on the street ends, should an emergency vehicle or neighbor need access to the block.
 •Please notify everyone on the block about the event
 •If your event includes music, please be considerate of surrounding neighbors especially if your music is amplified.
 •The official hours for Night Out are 6:00 – 10:00 p.m., with most gatherings occurring from 7 pm – 9 pm.  If you begin earlier you may interfere with commute times.
Is your block having a party tonight?  Send us your pictures of the festivities-
In addition to hosting Night Out, SPD is hosting Picnic at the Precinct this coming Saturday.  Precinct officers will be on hand to meet residents and answer question about crime issues and problems in the neighborhood. The whole family is welcome- they’ve planned fun activities, entertainment, and free food. The picnic is from 1 to 4 p.m. at the North Precinct office (10049 College Way N).
