Alice is a 3-month-old “mostly or completely Pomeranian.” Indira tells us it took a while to get to the park. “We were walking her down here and she can’t walk straight apparently,” she (human) said. “She’ll scuttle sideways and realize she’s sideways and walk in a big circle and start all over again.” We (human) highly recommend a walking friend like Alice.

Born in 2000 on 15th Ave E, Victrola has survived neighboring competitive corporate mimicry — remember 15th Ave Coffee & Tea? — and downright overwhelming investment on a global scale.

Coalition of small Capitol Hill property owners wants to halt chamber’s ‘Business Improvement Area’ expansion

Center of the opposition: This isn’t the first time Groberman has stood up against a BIA. In creating the existing Broadway BIA, planners “gerrymandered” his Harvard Market shopping center out of the assessment zone

    Coalition of small Capitol Hill property owners wants to halt chamber's 'Business Improvement Area' expansion
    Seattle's "tax revolt" spring of 2018 includes a skirmish along Broadway, Pike, and Pine. Instead of a battle over "No Tax on Jobs," this fight pits the Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce vs. a coalition of the neighborhood's few remaining smaller and family commercial property owners and its relatively few co-op and condominium property residents.
