NOW HERE’S WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON IN YOUR CITY
Noooooo! City Arts, a regional arts and culture magazine started in 2006, announced it’s ceasing publication and letting go of its staff because it’s out of money. In their letter to readers, the mag’s editors and staffers said they may try to keep City Arts going online, but its future is uncertain. “For now, we take heart in the beautiful prism of countless people who’ve been with us on this ride and we trust that our legacy lives somewhere in those beams of light,” they wrote. 💔 (City Arts)
Investigation is a go. Yesterday, state legislators voted to kickstart a “fair, nonpartisan” outside investigation into rape allegations against Republican state Senator Joe Fain, who is bidding for re-election. He’s denied the allegations. In September, Seattleite and former City of Seattle Information Technology Department employee Candace Faber accused Fain of raping her in a Washington D.C. hotel on the night of her master’s degree graduation in 2007.

One for the ferry fans. Need to get across the water fast? We’ll soon get to ride the Kingston Fast Ferry to get to and from Kingston and downtown Seattle in 39 minutes, no fairy dust needed. The new, speedy ferry service launches Monday, November 26. Get your coat and camera phone ready for some gorgeous marine views, folks. 🌊 (The Seattle Times)
‘A local atrocity.’ On Tuesday, a Fremont resident said they saw a woman break and drive away with the neighborhood’s famous Center of the Universe sign, which points to international locales and nearby sights like the Fremont Troll and Sunday market. Someone caught video of the theft and gave it to Seattle Police, but it’s still out there, somewhere. Have a tip about who did it? Call the Fremont Arts Council at 206-547-7440.

KUDOS TO A BADASS YOGA INSTRUCTOR 🙏
Today’s kudos comes from reader Rachel Van’t Land, who wanted to shout out to someone who makes her sweat…
“Shout out to Abiola Akanni for bringing the fire to her Friday night trap vinyasa class. She created a safe and juicy space for us to let loose, shake off the week, and move our bodies the way they want to move. Plus, the beats were dope.”
