TRIVIAL PURSUIT

You might’ve heard that ours is a pretty geeky city. And whether you’re into films, fantasy novels, food, or football, there’s one hobby that brings all of us together: trivia. The nightly brainy  showdowns have become such a part of Seattle culture that there’s several awesome trivia nights happening somewhere every night of the week. (Between Geeks Who Drink’s trivia network and QuizNight.net directory, we seem pretty covered.)

Not sure which one you should check out? Here are some particularly fun ones we’ve found…

NOW HERE'S WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON IN YOUR CITY

Our median income is what now? Brace yourselves for these new stats, ‘cause they’re really something: The median income for a Seattle family is $121,000 — 22 percent more than it was in 2010, when adjusted for inflation. Yes, we’re considered a pretty darn rich city these days, and no, that wealth is not evenly distributed. A full quarter of all Seattle families make $200,000 or more, and they now outnumber the families making $50,000 or less. Only two other major cities have a skew like that — San Francisco and San Jose. 😳 (The Seattle Times)

99 problems. We were supposed to say goodbye to our decades-old Alaskan Way Viaduct some time this fall, now that the tunnel to replace it is just about ready. Instead, we’ll get to ride that particular stretch of concrete jungle ‘til January. Why the delay? Rain’s gonna push ramp paving back toward the holidays. And no one wants intense downtown construction to grace us with its presents. 🎅 (The Seattle Times)

Delicioso. “I need a really good excuse to try amazing Mexican/Cuban/South American food,” said no one ever. Still: It’s National Hispanic Heritage Month, and this list of 42 Latino-owned restaurants in town is quite the handy roundup. Bonus: It’s grouped by neighborhood and tells you which ones are owned by families, women, and LGBTQ+ folks. (Intentionalist)

Not taking no for an answer. A nonprofit in Detroit promised $10,000 scholarships to 10 black Seattle students a couple years ago — then never delivered. 😡 Families had to scramble. The students had to change their college plans. Now a group of black Seattle professionals is saying, “Enough.” They’re stepping up to raise the money anyway — from right here at home. (The Seattle Times)

Clean most any Seattle icon and everything’s fine. Clean our charmingly disgusting Gum Wall out in Pike Place Market — like they did last week (so empty!) — and it’s a call to arms. Or, er, tongues?

So get chewing, Seattle. Your city’s counting on you. — The Evergrey
