    The plays were the thing this weekend in Volunteer Park as the annual Seattle Outdoor Theater Festival filled the public green space with drama, comedy, and, thanks to the hot summer temperatures, a general appreciation for more matter with less art.

‘Pay by plate’ will mean no more parking stickers in Seattle (and you probably still won’t be able to find a spot to park at night on Capitol Hill)

The end of the stickies

    'Pay by plate' will mean no more parking stickers in Seattle (and you probably still won't be able to find a spot to park at night on Capitol Hill)
    Parking on Capitol Hill should be more convenient under a new "pay by plate" system coming to Seattle that will allow people to enter their license plate number to pay for parking rather than print out a sticker and put it on their window.
