As we start pulling on our puffy jackets and scarves, we want to know: How are you staying cozy through Seattle’s winter? Are you spending more on artfully-poured lattes? Do you make s’mores in the fireplace with your kiddos? Is there a special family quilt you break out when you spend the day reading inside? We want to see.
Snap a pic of how you stay cozy and post it to Instagram using the hashtag #EvergreyChallenge. The more your photos make us feel warm and fuzzy inside, the better. We’ll share back a handful of your coziest pics next Friday to warm up the last month of the year. ❄️
That is an awesome neighbor. You know those raised bits of sidewalk that are super easy to trip on if you’re not careful? A man on First Hill makes little mosaics like this to fix them. “There are a few around our building,” wrote the man’s neighbor. “Helpful and pretty.” (Reddit)
Looking for a couple new spots for happy hour? Eater’s out with its list of finalists for Seattle’s Best Bar of the Year. In the running are Beer Star, a growler bar in White Center; Navy Strength, a tiki bar downtown; Lake City’s Brother Barrel, which promises a “craft barrel-aged and sour beer experience unlike any in Seattle,” Alchemy, a cocktail bar in West Seattle; and Spirit in the Bottle, a lounge in Capitol Hill. Got a favorite? Get your vote in by 11 a.m. (Eater Seattle)
What it’s like to carry a gun in Seattle. We read a lot of stories about the city, and this is a standout. Sean Nelson had never even held a gun when he decided to get a concealed carry permit, buy his own gun and see what it’s really like to carry it around the city. His essay is candid and comprehensive — the tense reflection of someone who’s as curious about guns as he is overwhelmed by their power to destroy. “The few times I went out without carrying, having forgotten or just chosen not to bother, I didn’t feel unsafe,” he wrote. “I felt unburdened.” Whatever your stance on guns, this is a challenging and gripping weekend read.
