Coming to catch a show in your beautiful city this weekend and looking for recommendations for restaurants within a reasonable distance from my hotel, which is at 700 Fifth Avenue North, apparently on "Lower Queen Anne Hill, one of Seattle's most refined and exclusive neighborhoods." (Hey, I didn't pick it.)
Anyhoo, looking specifically for a decent place for breakfast/brunch on Sunday morning. The non-snootier, the better, but I'd rather avoid the other end of the spectrum too and not take my sweetie to a greasy-spoon or Denny's/Sharis clone.
If you're familiar with Portland, places like Cup and Saucer (Hawthorne) or Stepping Stone (NW) are what we like.
Seattle Animal Shelter Investigates Possible Animal Cruelty
in Lower Magnolia
Severely emaciated dog found dead
SEATTLE – The Humane Society of the United States has offered a $2,500 reward for information resulting in the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the death of a dog found in the Interbay area last Tuesday. Animal cruelty in the city of Seattle is a crime. If convicted, the person responsible for this crime could face a fine of up to $5,000, a year in prison, or both.
On Tuesday, Seattle Animal Shelter humane law enforcement officers responded to a call about a deceased dog found next to Moss Green Inc. at 3625 Thorndyke Ave. W. The officers found an extremely emaciated tan and white pit bull, with a silver “pinch” collar around its neck. The deceased dog had no other identification. The state of emaciation was so advanced that seasoned officers were disturbed when examining the body. It appears the dog had been kept indoors and then dumped either just before, or after its death.
“This is a tragic and unfortunate incident. This dog clearly suffered tremendously prior to its death. Finding out who allowed this to happen is important so they can be held accountable for such a heinous and unnecessary act of animal cruelty,” says Seattle Animal Shelter Director Don Jordan.
If anyone has information relating to this crime, please contact the Seattle Animal Shelter at 386-7387, ext. 2 or email me at email@example.com
I often donate my time, art and money to my friends who need it or to those who are sad or who just like or otherwise ...want it. I have done this time after time.....and I don't think I have ever asked for anything in return....but this time, I am. This is to all of my artist friends out in LJ land.
A cause that is very near and dear to my heart is that of Greenlake Elementary School in Seattle. They are trying to raise money for school improvements...supplies and things that the children need...and I am asking for art donations for their auction. Will you please chip in some little something?
If you are interested in donating some small piece of art that would be suitable for this auction, I would be eternally grateful. It would mean a whole lot to me personally if you would. I wouldn't ask if it wasn't a worthy cause....and I do feel uncomfortable even asking....so please don't make me beg, baby.
Please email me if I can count on your donation.
No pressure or anything, but I have a loaded gun aimed at my goldfish right now. I'm not gonna say what will happen if you don't donate.

The Stalk Exchange restaurant is clearly no longer open on Phinney Ridge. It's been replaced with something else. Does anyone know if it moved someplace or if it just closed up? I miss their granola. :/
Run, run, to the PCC in Fremont and grab yourself a bowl of the borscht. Damn good. Seriouslah.
