    Machine House taproom will be E Jefferson neighborhood pub with cask ales and football on the telly
    If you want to do it right - create your own cask ales, "served through beer engines and at cellar temperature" - you're going to have to do it yourself. Georgetown-born Machine House Brewery is building a cozy tap room and soccer pub to showcase its English-style beers amid the growing food and drink scene along E Jefferson because it's a bloody shame to waste great beer.

A good time to visit Capitol Hill’s ‘most strange & unique book bunker’ Horizon Books

What if we told you Horizon Books was still alive? We reported the 15th Ave E bookshop’s closure in 2009. Eventually, another book shop would take its place. But Horizon never really went away as it retreated below ground, squirreled away on 10th Ave in the middle of Pike/Pine. Over the summer, it looked like Horizon was about to say goodbye again before it sprang back once more in September.

Capitol Hill Pets | Frankie and Olivia at the library

Frankie and Olivia were spotted trudging through the misty rain outside the Capitol Hill branch of the Seattle Public Library. Frankie, a Pomeranian-Chihuahua mix, is two years old and has been with Olivia since he was a puppy. Apparently, Frankie is already famous on the Hill, not just because of his friendly demeanor but also because he is a mighty jumper.

Pro-choice activists anticipating a crowd to counter conservative protests outside Planned Parenthood

Hundreds are going. Thousands are interested. It’s difficult to know how many will show to counter anti-choice protesters outside the Planned Parenthood’s Capitol Hill Clinic on Saturday, January 13. Officially, Planned Parenthood disapproves of the counter-action by pro-choicers, asking supporters of bodily autonomy to instead channel their activism into more conventional channels, such as donating and tweeting. Organizers of the pro-choice counter-action — called Seattle Clinic Defense — say they must reclaim the spaces outside clinics that anti-choicers have already politicized, and say their goal is not to protest but to shield patients from harassment.
