Tunnel vision. Wanna see what’s been going on under the Alaskan Way Viaduct since Seattle’s infamous Bertha boring machine finished tunneling last April? The Washington Department of Transportation filmed a neat timelapse video between September 2017 and last month, showing us how construction crews built a double-decker highway in a seven-story-deep pit. It’s mesmerizing. 📹 (GeekWire)

‘I’ve witnessed too many people fall through the system.’ All this week, educators across Seattle Public Schools will be teaching their students about black history and institutional racism as part of a national Black Lives Matter at School week. West Seattle High School senior Makhari Dysart and other NAACP Youth Coalition members, who advocate for students of color, spearheaded efforts to get the week of action approved by our city’s school board last month. When it comes to making school policies more equitable for all students, Makhari said, “If adults can’t do it, we’re going to do it.” (Seattle Weekly)

Souper. Where are the best places to grab a cup of French onion soup? How ‘bout a crock of rich seafood chowder or a dreamy bowl of pho? Eater Seattle mapped out some of our city’s best soup spots to fill your belly while fighting off the winter chill.

Belltown’s getting boozier. Need to refresh your happy hour routine? A new bar called Black Cat is aiming to open in Belltown this month. Bar owner Dustin Haarstad wants to keep this joint simple and fun. “We want to bring back that kind of culture of how people used to drink,” said Dustin, who used to work at Canon in Capitol Hill. “You get a shot of whiskey, a nice beer, and converse with your friends.” Bonus: Plan to drink frozen slushy cocktails on Black Cat’s deck when Seattle warms up again. 🍹 (Seattle Met)
