Your friends would be so jealous… “Hamilton,” that insanely popular musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda, is coming to Seattle and you have a chance to be allowed to buy tickets. Just register here by Thursday and pray. (Seattle Met)
What do you do when you step away from your busy tech job? You build a replica of Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley in your driveway, obviously. That’s what Jon Chambers just did to his house in Ballard just across from Whittier Heights Elementary School. And the pictures are unreal. “I was born the day before Halloween, and October is like my power month. So I decided to quit my job and focus on this crazy thing,” he said. Actors will be there tonight to say hey to trick-or-treaters. ✨ (GeekWire)
Even the Seahawks are composting. People who stress ate fries at Sunday’s nail-biting Seahawks game were being good to the planet, if not, you know, their carb count. The fertilizer that grew those 6,000 pounds of potatoes was made from the stadium’s own food scraps. Recycled fries FTW. (The Seahawks)
That was not cool. Thousands of people in Burien got a letter last week with a map allegedly pointing to where “illegal aliens and gang criminals” live. It was sent by a group that wants to end illegal immigration, and political leaders in King County said it was a pretty reckless and dangerous thing to do. “It doesn’t serve any purpose other than to scare people,” our county sheriff said.

Real Seattleites bike in the rain. At least, that’s what you can tell everyone else when you sign up for the monthlong Ride in the Rain Challenge. You can track your trips, join teams, and get competitive. November’s the wettest month in our city, so if you can pedal through this, you can pedal through anything. (Seattle Bike Blog)
