Plus: Booze news to drink to. 

We’ve made it to Friday, folks. 

Thanks for delivering on my ask for places that have opened this past year in an attempt to further prove that Seattle businesses (big and small) are indeed alive and well.

Here are a few of the names you sent in: Rey Amargo, Alexandra’s Macarons, Tyger Tyger, Communion, and while not new, Frelard Tamales has continuously supported the community by working with other small businesses like Alexandra’s Macarons. Plus, one reader's wife opened her own small businesses doing landscape design. Thanks to Valerie C., Rachel C., Katy N., Ryan P., and Heather D. for sharing!

Read on for the news — and for Evergrey Extra members, another weekend guide. 

What Seattle is talking about

Did you get vaxxed yet? Or at least have a plan to? Yesterday marked the first day in Washington state that anyone over the age of 16 was eligible to be vaccinated. Check out photos of the celebratory occasion for a number of people. (The Seattle Times)

  • Related: The Johnson & Johnson vaccine pause has left thousands of King County residents not knowing when they’ll be able to get vaccinated. 9,000 doses of the vaccine were scheduled to be administered by Public Health — Seattle & King County, but only 400 were able to be rescheduled with Moderna vaccines. (South Seattle Emerald)

The encampment at Miller Park is being swept, possibly as you’re reading this. Notices from the city went up around the Capitol Hill playfield on Wednesday asking folks to clear out by 9 a.m. today. This comes as students at Meany Middle School — which is located by the park — return to school next Monday. The school’s PTSA joined advocates in asking for the mayor to hold off on a sweep of the park so that campers have time to relocate. (Capitol Hill Seattle Blog)

Takeout booze for the win. The state officially extended the allowance for to-go alcohol sales until July 1, 2023. The measure was originally passed in an effort to help restaurants and bars stay afloat during the pandemic. We’ll cheers to that. (Eater Seattle)

Jeff gave a heartfelt final shareholders letter...just kidding. Jeff took the time to address the recent effort to unionize in Alabama and clarify that Amazon employees were not being treated like robots. He is set to step down as CEO at the end of the third quarter this year and instead act as executive chairman. (GeekWire

One more thing …

It’s supposed to get OVER 70 degrees this weekend. This brings me both great joy and anxiety over how to dress appropriately for this weather. Anyway, here’s a funny meme that sums up Seattle’s inner feelings when the temperature gets beyond our comfort level of a solid mid-60-degrees. 

Go bask in the sun and we’ll see you back here Tuesday.
