Police Shootings: What Can Be Done?
In our latest podcast episode, we discuss police reform, community engagement, and ballot initiatives as methods for reducing gun violence.


Hi there and welcome to December. Last month, you flooded our Instagram feed with color to help us beat back the grey outside. Although we’ve had a pretty warm fall, it’s finally starting to get a little chillier in our city — and we’re not just talking about our infamous Seattle Freeze

Bundle up, y'all. Clockwise from bottom left, pics by: @hola_moto, @moniguzman, @jenennap, and @asknauf.

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. (The Stranger)
