Saturday’s Mobile Trucks Chowdown in Interbay was a great success! Hundreds of people gathered in the Interbay/Dravus area to feast on food served by several mobile food providers. The weather cooperated and there was plenty of elbow room for people to spread out. Tables and chairs were provided, but others brought fold-out chairs or leaned against their cars.
Food providers such as Marination Mobile , Skillet and Maximus Minimus exceeded beyond their wildest dreams with people excited to gobble-up tacos, rice dishes and sliders with Asian inspired sauces and spices.
As a first time Interbay community event, the Chowdown producers worked with the Interbay Neighborhood Association to spread the word through blogs, local papers, Facebook, Twitter and word of mouth. The networking resulted in people coming down to Interbay from far and wide with family and friends to experience a mini-version of The Bite of Seattle.
Interbay is the perfect place for such events with open lots (for now) and plenty of parking. Nestled...
A Mobile Food Truck convergence zone is descending down on Interbay, Saturday, October 10 from 11:00-3:00. Food trucks have taken the street food vendor business to a whole new level, offering delectable food served out of some bizarre vehicles. For example, Maximus Minimus is shaped like a pig, and others look like winnebegos on steroids.
No matter what the shape, the food is delicious. This will be a rare opportunity to taste a variety of menus on one day. So come on down to Interbay (across from Denali Fitness on Bertona) and chow down.
The Public Safety, Human Services and Education Committee decided today to approve legislation to move forward on relocating Fire Station 20 to the Four Seasons site on 15th Ave. W. This is great news to the large number of people who showed up at City Hall today to voice their concerns about the current location expansion plans on 13th Ave. W.
Individuals that live nearby spoke about the inability to sleep at night, raise children, and the impact a future expansion of Fire station 20 would have, which would require three houses to be bull dozed, furthering the negative impact on neighbors living on west Queen Anne hill.
Extensive research and environmental impact studies have consistently shown that the location on 15th Ave. W., is a much better location for a fire station serving Magnolia, Interbay and Queen Anne. Rather than turning off 13th Ave. W, going up or down Dravus St’s steep incline, the Four Seasons site allows the trucks to trigger a light,...
Now that the primary is over, anyone interested in the way Seattle will be run and managed will want to learn more about Joe Mallahan, Mike McGinn and the City Council finalists. To help you be better informed about these candidates, the Interbay Neighborhood Association has been working with Ballard, Queen Anne and Magnolia District Councils to host a Candidates Forum.
Candidates for Seattle City Council and Mayor will answer questions about neighborhood concerns Monday, October 5, at the Ballard High School Auditorium. Doors will open at 6:00 pm with the Forum beginning at 6:30 pm. Seattle Channel’s C. R. Douglas will moderate the Candidates Forum which is co-sponsored by the Magnolia / Queen Anne and Ballard District Councils.mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org@seattle.gov, is the Neighborhood District Coordinator for Magnolia / Queen Anne and Rob Mattson, 684-4051, mailto:email@example.com@seattle.gov, is Coordinator for the Ballard District Council.

Most Seattelites have made up their minds about whether they are for or against a tunnel to replace the viaduct. You can count on more debates and "Seattle Process" over this issue with our two finalists for Seattle Mayor -- one for and one against a new tunnel.
In any case, the men and women down at the office of Washington Department of Transporation are coming up with some incredible simulations of the proposed bored tunnel. Whether you are swayed by their models and simulations, you can't deny that they are producing some cutting edge virtual reality experiences for us.
To experience a ride through the proposed tunnel go here and enjoy the ride!
One video takes you on a drive-through simulation of the bored tunnel, which would begin near the stadiums and exit onto Aurora Avenue N. During the trip, you will also see the ramps at both ends of the tunnel and new street connections over the tunnel’s portals.
After traveling through the tunnel, watch the second video to visit...
The New York Times did a great article on the future of vertical urban farms that aren't dependant on land. Imagine four-story towers in urban neighborhoods that funnel rain water from the sky to a reservoir, powered through solar panels, producing different crops on each level. Using hydroponics, which allows plants to grow in a water-and-nutrient solution, vertical urban farms can produce food that doesn't rely on limited land resources and vast amounts of energy, water, pesticides, and chemicals.
Ideas like this serve as models of the future Interbay Neighborhood which will be a model for the city and throughout the country on how an urban environment can be powered through alternative energy and resources. Stay tuned for more innovative ideas coming from the Interbay Neighborhood Association.
A goal of the Interbay Neighborhood Association is to model how a green community can be built with the least dependance on electrical companies that get their power through dams on our rivers, or through coal burning plants. Working with INA members we are working to change our daily use of energy and track how much our electrical bills drop. For the next few weeks we will use this blog to share energy saving tips. Some are well known and others are recent developments in getting off the grid.
We begin with the biggest energy hog in our homes -- the computer. If you're wondering when you should turn off your personal computer for energy savings, here are some general guidelines to help you make that decision.
Though there is a small surge in energy when a computer starts up, this small amount of energy is still less than the energy used when a computer is running for long periods of time. For energy savings and convenience, consider turning off
Seattle has known how good Red Mill Burgers is for years. Every year it grabs the Best In Seattle award from the Seattle Weekly and a host of other publications. But Red Mill in Interbay and Greenwood just received another great recongition by being a part of an episode from Man Vs. Food, a show that has its host Adam, consume massive amounts of food in one sitting. If Adam likes it, you know his legions of fans will flock to his recognitions.
Adam came in with his film crew and shot an episode and business picked-up big time afterwards. Here is just a few of the comments the show received:
After planning a trip to Seattle, we saw Red Mill featured on the show Man vs Food and decided we had to try it for ourselves. Overall, it was definitely the bacon that makes this better-than-your-average-burger and it's worth a visit if you're in the Seattle area.
The first thing that I noticed is the great bread used for the burger, it was soft and slightly sweet. But in the end the bacon...
Going by an article posted on the Queen Anne Blog, it appears that the Whole Foods in Interbay has ramped up their opening date. This is great news since we all look forward to having more food options in the area. The Interbay Urban Center contains businesses such as Pete's Coffee, Subway, Interbay Cleaners, Chinese restaurant and Whole Foods is one of many players that are helping turn around Interbay. Here is a link to the story provided by Thea Chard with the Queen Anne View.
Also, since Whole Foods will not be occupying the entire building as previously planned, TRF is seeking an additional large business to fill the adjoining space.
On Friday, September 18th, people all across the nation will take to the streets to turn car spaces into people spaces. In Seattle, Feet First is leading the charge by making it relatively cheap and easy to get street use and meter permits. On Capitol Hill, People's Parking Lot (a.k.a. the Keith Harris Conspiracy) and the Capitol Hill Community Council have stepped up to make Park(ing) Day 2009 even better.
People's Parking Lot and the Capitol Hill Community Council are hosting the first ever Park(ing) Day Seattle Prize. A group of local journalists (is Interbay District Blog interested?), unemployed artists, and other disreputable neighborhood-types will be recruited to the judging caravan, which will wind its way throughout Seattle in search of the finest park to grace a parking spot. The winner will receive a super-secret fabulous trophy and an equally fabulous prize. The awards ceremony will take place at 6pm at Park(ing) Day Central Park on 500 E Pine.
Are you tempted by the...
Yesterday, the food options in Interbay for lunch just got ramped-up. Mobile food trucks have grown in popularity -- not just because they can be everywhere, but also because the food is so doggone tasty. This is not your prepackaged sandwiches, soup and soda food trucks found at your typical construction site or county fair. This food is 5-star at 2-star prices.
Marination Mobile is Seattle’s sauciest food truck. Founded in 2009, Marination specializes in Hawaiian and Korean curb cuisine that is always fast, usually marinated in a signature sauce, frequently served in a tortilla, and mostly healthy. Our rolling street kitchen is a righteous destination for carnivores and vegetarians alike.
Every Tuesday, from 11:30-2:00, you can grab a bite to eat at the old 7-11 site in Interbay on Dravus (just off 15th Ave. W.). Come on down and eat like the international gourmet you are for under $6.00.
You know summer is here when the sound of jazz starts wafting through Interbay and up the hills of Queen Anne and Magnolia from the Interbay Golf Center. I remember the first time I heard live music come in through my window and began searching for the source. What a great discovery when I found people sitting outside drinking beer and wine and chowing down on barbecue while listening to some great local band.
Now going on over 5 years, the Interbay Barbecue Jazz series is ready to kick off again. Music takes place on Thursdays from 5:00 - 8:30 and will get underway beginning July 2. Interbay Golf Center is located at the corner of Gilman and 15th Ave W. and one of the great additions to the Interbay area. To learn more go to http://www.seattlegolf.com/pdf/0905_bbq_jazz.pdf
After being knocked out early before advancing to the Western Conference Finals Last Season, The Seattle Storm is coming back to the 2009 season which opens June 7 with a team that is ready to go all the way. Coach Brian Agler explained that this season really depends on the health of his players, but he feels good about the roster. It¹s the 10th anniversary of the Storm and it¹s a great milestone for the organization, Karen Bryant, chief executive officer of Seattle Storm said. We¹ve been as successful as we have because we¹ve had a great outpouring of support from fans.
The Storm moved from downtown and into its new team headquarters in Interbay this past February, which will serve as a focal point for employees, players and fans, said Bryant. The 12,055 square-foot headquarters is in the Interbay Building on 15th Avenue West.
The Interbay space is an old ice cream shop with a rich history that had been reclaimed and refurbished. Bryant added that it also gave them a chanceto...
The day before the first cruise ship arrived in Interbay at Smith Terminal, members of various community groups were given a tour of the facility.
After showing our ID at the security check point, we were greeted by Sally Del Fierro and Rosie Courtney from the Port of Seattle. Climbing into a tour bus, we did several runs of routes in and out of the terminal to experience what a cruise ship passenger would go through coming by bus, taxi or car, At $20.00 a day for parking your car, passengers are much better off using bus, taxi, or having a friend drop them off.
With this last option, the drop off point would be outside the car lot, which will have shuttles running back and forth. There is also is a cell phone lot for waiting on a passenger to come off the boat.
A yellow canopy serves as a entry point across the pier to the terminal. Taxis and buses will pull drive around to the right, drop passengers off at the front door, and then circle out on...
The Seattle Fire Department and Fleets and Facilities have gone back to the original plan to replace the aging, cramped Fire Station # 20 with an expanded facility at the old one's current location in the 3200 block of 13th Avenue West.
The plan originally called for the demolition of three single-family homes on the block to do that, although the city will probably have to make do with just two because of cost considerations, said Seattle City Council member and Queen Anne resident Tim Burgess.
Furthermore, in 2006, the city council rejected the idea, too, and called the following year for the hiring of a consultant to perform another site study for a station location.
Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske today clarified issues relating to the BAT lanes on 15th Ave West. The chief sent a letter regarding the issues raised at the meeting held by the Magnolia Community Club in November.
Here is what the Chief said:
Drivers may now use the lanes northbound at Mercer Place if they are intending to access the Galer Street ramp to the Magnolia Bridge. This meets the community’s request for safer acccess.
BAT lane signage indicating hours of operation should be interpreted to mean the lane is available to all vehicles outside the posted hours. Specifically, this means that drivers may use this as a normal lane outside the posted hours.
The ticket for BAT lane violations is $124. The transportation department will deploy electronic signs to inform drivers during the week of April 20th. After a two week period, SPD will begin enforcement of the BAT lane rules.
Does Seattle need to build a new jail?
You may remember that last November, council member Tim Burgess and I,
Seattle City Light and the Neighborhood Power Project, in cooperation with Sustainable Magnolia, present a Community Forum on City Light’s Strategic Plan and Five-Year Conservation Action Plan.
Yesterday, at the Nordic Heritage Museum, a community forum was held on Fishermen's Terminal and the Viaduct Tunnel. To the Port Commission's credit, they want to know how best to serve the interests of the fishing community, and the businesses that are dependent on going north and south via the current viaduct.
Port staff did an overview of concerns about the deterioration of various areas of Fishermen's Terminal (cement dock erosion and rusting buildings), misuse of the storage nets area (some are used for storing vehicles and flammable materials) and the selling of fish off the docks. The biggest concern was of the fishing net lockers being used for storage of cars, boats and a variety of items that block sprinklers if a fire were to happen. The Fire Marshal expressed deep concern about this and the Port will begin the process of asking fishermen to clean up their lockers.
Two fishermen spoke on behalf of the fishing community and thanked the Port for subsidizing low moorage rates for fishermen,...
