👽 Turns out we’re kinda obsessed with UFOs?

Plus: A little throwback Thursday for you about Seattle Civil Rights.

It’s Thursday.

Hopefully, you’ve been enjoying our U District coverage. We’ve been enjoying writing it. Got some feedback for us? Let us know by replying to this email. And if you haven’t yet, here’s your friendly reminder to fill out this short Google Form — we’re using it to compile a guide to the neighborhood at the end of the month.

Also, we’re chatting with Rick McLaughlin from Big Time Brewery today at 4 p.m. about what he’s drinking and how Big Time has been weathering the pandemic. You can head over to our Instagram page to tune in AND while you’re there, you should enter our giveaway with the Neighborhood Farmers Market!

Now that we’ve kept the house, let’s get to the news.

4 things Seattle is talking about

📈The verdict is out, we’re NOT going back to Phase least for now. Gov. Inslee announced the decision on Tuesday that all regions would remain where they are for at least another two weeks. King County has exceeded the number of COVID-19 cases in order to keep them in Phase 3. (KUOW)

🍽It’s like Airbnb but for food. The startup, Shef, offers home-cooked meals from chefs that work out of local commercial kitchens and then drop off their food at designated places. Their primary location is in Capitol Hill where the Gary Manuel Aveda Institute used to be. Food offerings range from homemade Indian, Mexican, and vegetarian-friendly meals. (Capitol Hill Seattle Blog)

🍎Mutual aid for the win. The residents of the South Park neighborhood have come together over the past year to assist their own community members during the pandemic. From providing hot meals to raising money to help folks pay their bills to offering pantry supplies, residents have really stepped up. South Park was considered Seattle’s most diverse neighborhood according to 2010 census data. Way to go, South Park. (YES! Magazine)

🛰Anyone see that weird “string of pearls” over the city the other night? No, they weren’t extraterrestrial visitors but instead a few friendly SpaceX satellites. Fun fact: An old survey from Asgardia, a society devoted to the cultivation of life in space, found that Washington residents have reported more UFO sightings than any other state. (The Seattle Times)

Throwback Thursday

Fifth Annual Malcolm X Festival poster, Seattle, 1975

Today's TBT is a poster promoting the 5th annual Malcolm X Festival at the UW. The event was sponsored by the Black Student Union which originally formed in 1968. This particular poster is from 1975. That year political activist and comedian Dick Gregory gave the keynote speech. 

You can read more about the BSU and its history on the Seattle Civil Rights & Labor History Project's website.

Thanks to MOHAI for providing TBT's artifacts!
