Here’s what’s on the menu at UK restaurant that named itself Pike & Pine

The Seattle Times this week reported on the city’s ongoing restaurant boom — 2,696 tallied earlier this year, up 25% from a decade ago. Many of those opened on Capitol Hill — CHS has counted somewhere around 172 new Hill openings since 2012. And many of those Hill openings came in the Pike/Pine neighborhood as the area’s auto row bones were put to new, high-ceilinged, wood-beamed uses.

Capitol Hill Pets | Jeremy and Doctor on Broadway

Jeremy, a huge Dr. Who (David Tennant version) fan, was hanging out near Seattle Central with his pup Doctor when we stopped by to say hello. “He loves to run, play, and get into mischief. We are *his* companions. People think he’s a miniature Rottweiler, but you can’t do that,” Jeremy tells us. Doctor is a four-year-old Carlin Pinscher, which is a mix between a pug and a mini-Pinscher. “Our previous dog was a German Rottweiler, and after he passed away we had to downsize for the city,” Jeremy said. “The German Rott was a lot nicer, Doctor’s nice too, but he’s a little putz sometimes.”

Rather than more talk about Seattle’s homeless sweeps, here’s what one looks like

Wednesday morning under I-90 at Rainier Avenue S, an outreach team and the Seattle Police Department performed a homeless sweep. People were living in sleeping bags, hammocks and using cardboard boxes. There were large piles of trash. Approximately two truck beds were seen overflowing, but much of the mass was made up of large slats and pallets.

‘We need to act as cities’ — what Seattle can do about gun violence

In the wake of Sunday’s mass shooting in Texas, local politicians are joining the national chorus of voices — yet again — calling for substantive measures to address America’s gun violence problem. Seattle’s likely mayor-elect and former U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan called for municipal-level action on the issue in a statement made on Monday: “With no leadership from this Congress or our legislature, we need to act as cities,” she said.

    Big branch smashes car in Arboretum
    E Pike wasn't the only location for oddly smashed cars this weekend. CHS reader Thomas sent us these pictures including a scene of triumphant jubilation from a man who narrowly avoided injury in what must have been a surprising greeting in the parking lot of Washington Park field next to the Arboretum's Seattle Japanese Garden.

    First look: Inside Capitol Hill's first cat cafe
    On the corner of Pine and Belmont, huddles of friends walk down the street and crouch to peer into a storefront window. There are giggles and smiles. Dogs peer through the window - from the sidewalk side of things - with curiosity and plenty to say.
