Ranked
  • Is the Seattle Freeze getting colder this winter? The Emerald City ranked No. 20 out of 30 major metro areas for most neighborly, according to a recent Storage Cafe report. Although keep in mind that a 2021 OfferUp survey had us at No. 1. So, ya know, take it with a grain of salt. 🏘️ (Storage Cafe)
Civic
  • Wait, there’s a local election today? That’s right — voting has started for a King Conservation District board position. If you’re wondering where that district actually is, the main office is in Renton, but it’s really a larger county org that handles land stewardship + natural resources. Find the ballot online. 🗳️
Coming Soon
  • The Seattle boba craze can’t stop, won’t stop. Timeless Tea — which has locations in the U District + Bellevue — is planning to open a third shop on Capitol Hill at 509 Broadway E. in the space formerly occupied by Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt. Besides bubble tea, there’s also mousse in the shapes of puppies. 🧋 (Capitol Hill Blog)
Sports
  • Jordan Eberle made some history last week as the Seattle Kraken’s first-ever All-Star. The forward will represent the Pacific Division in Las Vegas on Feb. 5, while teammate Mark Giordano had a chance to join him as a “last man in” candidate through fan voting (ballots closed last night). 🏒 (ESPN)
Drink
  • Raise a glass, y’all. Reuben’s Brews is celebrating its 10-year anniversary in Ballard with a series of special beers that honor some of the local businesses + individuals that have been key to its success. January’s collab kicked off with Georgetown Brewing on Saturday with nine others coming soon. 🍻
