Georgetown Stew: A South Seattle Neighborhood blog



Georgetown is like an oasis in the industrial wasteland south of the city. A nosiy, polluted oasis, but loved intensely nonetheless. Here's a blog about strong community, staying creative and resisting gentrification.

Read all about it

This blog has been inactive for a while, if you couldn't tell.



Traffic

Fri, 24 Aug 2007 06:15:00 +0000

With the closure of I5 north from Spokane St. a lot of traffic is being diverted down Airport Way. It hasn't become the nightmare I thought it would be (I don't have a car so that helps!)... although the noise of commuter traffic at 7am has pushed the noise level around here a little over the edge. Usually I get a good break from 2am - 9am, but increased commuter traffic means the noise starts around 6am. It's a little more than grating, but hey, I pay cheap rent. An investment in my future ill-health I am sure.



ART AND GARDEN WALK THIS SUNDAY

Tue, 03 Jul 2007 10:43:00 +0000

If you're coming to Georgetown this Sunday for the Art and Garden Walk, here's some tips...



No Georgetown Dump

Sat, 30 Jun 2007 04:57:00 +0000

So we reduced some trucks and smell in smelly truckville.

Greetings from the dirty south! My name is JD Roy and from this post on, I will be blogging for Georgetown Stew...



Seattle’s largest pothole to be filled

Thu, 19 Apr 2007 12:48:00 +0000

One down, and....



Trouble at the other Rainier Brewery

Wed, 18 Apr 2007 16:31:00 +0000

Admit it. You still read the Weekly. So do I. They nailed a story on the artists' trouble up the street, just north of the rail yard. Barely in Sodo, it's almost like watching the water rising:



The old union hall

Wed, 18 Apr 2007 16:30:00 +0000

It's not so old, but the hall once the home of the UFCW local 1105 (now merged into local 21--retail clerks) is home of natural pet supply store, A Dog's Dream. It's like, natural, for dogs, y'know?



The mother of all potholes

Wed, 18 Apr 2007 16:21:00 +0000

Don't be fooled. You know a pothole when you see one.



“Super 8” film fest

Sat, 14 Apr 2007 04:15:00 +0000

Seems it wasn't that long ago the call went out for experienced and experimental alike to fire up the old super 8 cameras (hamster not included) and produce a 3 or so minute short for the Georgetown Super 8 Film Festival. It's this Sunday the 15th at 5pm, at the Museum of Flight. The Super 8 website issues their warning: "The second half contains more adult content (more or less PG 13 to R content). Youth under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to see the second half." It's 15 bucks to get in, ten if you have an entry.



Shelling out for new pumps

Wed, 11 Apr 2007 03:16:00 +0000

Word is that the construction at the Shell station will be completed this coming Tuesday, though by the looks of it, I wouldn't count on it. No leaky tanks, or anything that scary; just an upgrade of the pumps. The grocer portion is still open, but good luck with the parking...



More Townhouses

Thu, 05 Apr 2007 12:53:00 +0000

This time, on the corner of Carleton and S. Willow, where the lot is being subdivided into three units. The contact on the DPD application is Brittani Ard, who is the chair of the Seattle Builders Council with the Master Builders Association. Hiring a consultant to handle permitting issues is not so uncommon, considering the difficulty in building a new structure anywhere in the city, or King county for that matter. I wonder what they'll end up looking like.



Navigating Airport Way

Wed, 04 Apr 2007 14:08:00 +0000

Specifically, the northern portion in Georgetown: it can get a little tricky. And, almost like clockwork, the second people vested in a part of the neighborhood take an interest, some city agencies don't seem to notice as well.



Award winning writer, across the river on Tuesday

Mon, 02 Apr 2007 07:15:00 +0000
