Magnolia author's new book covers past and present of Seattle food
  • Magnolia Village has been the historic venue for myriad community gatherings. But the business corridor has long lacked the sort of public amenities that make a neighborhood a place to explore rather than just pop in.
  • 5 Spot owner Peter Levy says the restaurant will focus on its popular breakfast and lunch offerings moving forward, but is discontinuing dinner service in response to the market on the top of Queen Anne.
  • Local classic, exotic and drag-racing car owners lined West McGraw Street for the Magnolia Village Car Show on Sunday.
  • Twenty-five Queen Anne and Magnolia streets, parks, common spaces or private yards were signed up to host National Night Out events on Tuesday night.
  • Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting an open house to share plans for replacing aging timber features in Mayfair Park, including a stairway from the ‘70s, retaining walls and light fixtures. The play area is not part of the project, and the park will need to close when the project starts in spring 2020.
  • Magnolia resident Shawn Dougherty is sharing this year’s Transpacific Yacht Race victory with his crew, who joined him for the nine-day voyage from Los Angeles to Honolulu last month.
  • Residents had already crowded the curbs of West McGraw Street in anticipation of the 2019 Magnolia Summerfest Seafair Parade and Kids Parade by 10 a.m. Saturday. The annual Summerfest celebration took place Aug. 2-4.
  • Movie director Ben Medina’s career has taken him around the world. Following the release of his latest thriller shot in and around Seattle, the Queen Anne resident now has plans to shoot two more films here in the Pacific Northwest.
  • The Seattle Opera is expanding access to its rush program, making discounted day-of-show tickets available to civil servants, primary- and secondary-school educators, arts industry professionals and nonprofit employees, as well as low-income patrons.
  • The annual Rooftop Brewing Company Block Party will be pumping out live music from noon to midnight at its brewery and expanded taproom near Fishermen’s Terminal on Saturday, Aug. 10.
  • The upcoming Symphony for Climate Change at the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center will supply earthshaking musical vibrations and powerful visuals, clearing the air on the global crisis.

  • Tired of the annual uncertainty as to whether the Magnolia Village Car Show was a go, Werner’s Crash Shop manager Eric Berge stepped up to organize the event 12 years ago, and remains its driving force to this day.
  • It isn’t inconceivable: Seattle Center Movies at the Mural season is here.
  • Queen Anne Greenways pulled out the stops for its first Playstreet event of the summer along First Avenue West on Thursday, July 18, giving families room to play during the neighborhood farmers market.
  • A Seafair tradition for more than 50 years, Magnolia Summerfest will heat up the village from Aug. 2-4. The Magnolia Chamber of Commerce organizes the  free neighborhood summer festival, with strong volunteer support over the course of the Seafair weekend.

  • After some tribute-band rocking on Friday night, calories were burned during Saturday morning’s Run for Home fun run/walk, followed by food, games, more music, a sidewalk sale, dunk tank and bouncy houses during the annual Queen Anne Days.
  • Queen Anne Greenways is hosting its fourth annual Playstreets program from 4-7 p.m. on Thursday, July 18.
  • Moored to Lake Union’s Historic Ships Wharf, on a slightly less-than-fair-weather day, the Northwest Seaport Maritime Heritage Center hosted the first Tugboat Happy Hour of the year on Tuesday, July 9.
  • Ballard will reel in the 45th annual SeafoodFest from July 12-14. Expect musical performances, seafood vendors, a beer garden, arts and crafts, the Festi-bowl skateboarding competition, and a lutefisk-eating competition.
