50th Street Deli Market To Be Redeveloped
Wallyhood - You can finally get rid of your VHS player- despite years of advertising to the contrary, the 50th street Deli Market is not going to restock with $0.98 video tapes. Thanks to Todd for passing this info on to us: Looks like 50th Street Market building is being torn down and replaced with 17 "efficiency apartments" […] (This article originally appeared on Wallyhood, the Wallingford neighborhood blog.

Real Estate Report
Wallyhood - (This is a sponsored post by Kris Murphy and Daniela Dombrowski, Wallingford realtors) Bidding wars continue to be the norm rather than the exception in our Wallingford & Tangletown neighborhoods as well as rest of the region. While we see escalations as much as 50% in one case, the overall average in the last 6 months […] (This article originally appeared on Wallyhood, the Wallingford neighborhood blog.

Teacher's Union Negotiation Update
Wallyhood - The Seattle Education Association had a membership meeting last night, including not just teachers but specialists, aides and office workers – really everyone who interacts with kids at SPS. The union and the district have been negotiating since May but have decided nothing much at all so far, about 2 weeks before the start of the school year. Kind of a bad position to be in- ideally there'd be a contract to vote on at this point, even if the vote was 'no'. The big date coming up is September 3rd, when there will be a vote on whether or … Read more...

(PARK)ing Day Applications Due
Wallyhood -   PARK(ing) Day is a city-wide event where folks get the chance to turn a parking space into a little work of art.

Here's the deets on the upcoming deadline: Just a reminder that you have one week to submit your applications for PARK(ing) Day 2015! Applications are due on Friday, August 28. Don't delay--the application is quick, easy, and free! On September 18, PARK(ing) Day will provide an opportunity for you to create fun and interactive … Read more...

Green Cone Ecosystems
Wallyhood - Our green cone is a thing of beauty this year with all the heat, provided a bad acid trip is your idea of beauty. I'm not sure what these things turn into when they grow up, but I know I'm not doing an Internet image search to find out: And that's just for a vegetarian green cone. Maybe in a carcassatarian green cone the maggots would have sharp little incisors and vertical eye slits? If you want an ecosystem of your own, you can get green cones here (you need at least two): http://www.seattle.gov/parks/scc/binsandbarrels.htm  … Read more...

More Buses, More Options, Less 26X Capacity
Wallyhood - I hate to kick Metro while they are in what may be a transitional stage for them, but I happened to notice adverts splashed on my favorite sites with the slogan: 'More buses, more options. Thanks Seattle Voters.'   Something about that slogan invites derision especially since my husband has been talking about leaving earlier to catch his bus since the changes in June.  Why? I'll let another Wallingford resident Erik Blazing tell it: For several years now, my morning commute was usually via the last run of the 26X (the one that arrives at 40th & Wallingford ~8:38am). That… Read more...

Bikeworks on the Burke
Wallyhood - Feeling that clack-clack-clack when you should be feeling a whoosh-whoosh-whoosh? Got a rattle in your saddle? We've got some fine bike shops in Wallingford: I'm partial to Recycled Cycles, I admire the mission of School of Bike, and I know that Gregg's Green Lake is a hometown favorite, as well), but if you need a repair, the wait can be heartbreaking: these guys can get backed up by weeks.

Art of Confections Cooked?
Wallyhood - [Update: Original article has been removed.] Here's the short of it: Art of Confections, the bakery that recently opened in the spot where the Erotic Bakery once stood at 45th and Sunnyside, has closed. There's a story told by the owner, and a story told by her erstwhile friend and investor, and the stories differ on some key facts. What both agree on is that it is closed and will not be re-opening. This article originally included a link to a GoFundMe campaign page to raise money for the owner. In its original form, money donated would help re-open the … Read more...

Wallingford's $400 Million Dollar Poo Tube
Wallyhood - Seattle Public Utilities has a grand master plan to solve sewage overflow problems for Lake Union, and it's a tunnel of course. This has been in planning for several years, and in general you shouldn't care, but it's worth noting because this particular poo tube will clock in at close to a half billion dollars so it's a 'mega project'. Mega projects have tons of money sitting around, plus they have highly compensated consultants standing at the ready, just waiting to listen to your complaints and bright ideas. There's 1% for art money, there's environmental impact study mitigation efforts, there's … Read more...

Wallingford, The Hole in the Donut
Wallyhood - I was chatting with a friend of mine in real estate the other day, and he had an interesting take on 45th Street: Noting that commercial districts around 45th (Fremont, south Stone Way, Tangletown, 65th, even along the waterfront) have all seen some interesting new businesses come in, while 45th itself has been relatively stagnant, with new restaurants and shops struggling to survive, he declared 45th 'the hole in the donut'. But why? His notion is that the people who own the property along 45th are holding onto it, waiting for their payday when the new HALA rezone goes into … Read more...
