I lost my Garmin GPS (protective film still on screen, though peeling, and the whole thing quite dusty - at least before the rain...) on the Dutch Miller Gap trail yesterday. If any of you hikers out there happen to find it (or know a hiker who happened to find it), please, pretty please, let me know - a message in my journal will get to me same-day to confirm model. Reward offered.
I'm looking for bars in the Seattle area (Capitol Hill, Lower Queen Anne, downtown proper) that play music suitable for dancing east coast swing or Lindy Hop. This would be "big band"/'50s era rock 'n roll, stuff like that. A open space of floor where people can dance would be a major bonus. Serving hard liquor would also be a major bonus. I've already searched the memories, but this is a pretty specific request, so I didn't find anything. I'm hunting for my upcoming birthday party location...
Some friends of mine are planning to host an enormous (up to 150 people) Halloween party this year, but we haven't been able to find a space large enough that we could rent for just that night. Does anyone know of such a venue in the Seattle area? A warehouse space would be just fine, provided it had the essential facilities (restrooms, electricity).
Thanks in advance for any pointers.
I need a garden gnome, a good size one (not too tiny)
Has anyone seen one recently around at a plant/garden store, seattle, eastside, north, etc?
Where's the best place to get rid of an old car for low cost? It can be driven somewhere but doesn't run well (so it's not charity-worthy, especially given that it's 24 years old). It needs to be disposed of ASAP as the tabs expired on Saturday and it's parked on the street.
it's also a Saab, which some junkyards apparently don't take. No idea why, but there you go.
What's a decent, cheap Chinese food place that delivers? Preferably to the Northgate area.
I checked the memories, but they seem to be sadly lacking in Chinese food questions.
I am looking to get the following done on my new home in Burien. I have checked the memories and tags and did not really see anything concrete (except for one company in Marysville but I figure there has got to be someone closer.
1. Insulation installed in the attic.
Currently there is none and I would like to get some in there asap before winter really starts to set in. I am not sure if I want roll in or spray in but it does have a hip roof so I would think spray in would be easier and more effcient.
2. Vapor barrier laid down in the crawl space.
There is some plastic down currently in the crawl space but not alot. There was enough room in the crawl space for the electrician (C&R Electric, I highly recommend them) to ground my outlets so there is space to work.
Any suggestions? Used someone/company you have been really happy with?
I need to get a halloween dress taken in and I wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions an alteration place somewhere in the U-District, Northgate or somewhere near there. Thanks in advance.
it's a curious query i have, because i was wondering about this. the other day i was taking the bus home from work downtown, and on one bus, the driver was quite vociferous about how this older indian guy couldn't load his bike in the ride-free zone (and therefore board), that it was against the rules and allathat. on the second bus i transferred to, however, the driver was perfectly content to let a young blond white woman load her bike in the ride-free zone and hop on. both drivers were white males, incidentally.
now i know that everyone will say racism doesn't exist, it all ended 40 years ago by magical fiat and whatnot, but given the extremely ODD circumstances there, i am wondering if the bike thing is in fact a rule (which is violated at bus driver whim or leisure) or a guideline, where the driver is free to randomly select who is worthy to load their bike in the ride-free zone.
i'm new to town and don't know how all the metro regulations and such work, and it's not like their site would clarify this type of thing, so any help/enlightenment on the matter would be keen.
