Plus: Puget Sound’s marine life is thriving.

Hey there, it’s Tuesday.

One of the telltale signs of growing up in Washington state is if you can explain a salmon’s life cycle to a stranger. Some states have mandated the learning of missionaries into their curriculum, but Washington teaches its youth about salmon. 

Good news for those who still harbor a secret love for that unit in school, there’s a new fish tracking game you can play where you pick a fish and then get updates on its journey from Puget Sound out to the Pacific. Apply to play Survive the Sound by May 2. 

Today we’ve got: A series from Crosscut about the fight by Native communities to reclaim ancestral lands, the most punk rock thing a dive bar could do, and a game of I Spy for Evergrey Extra members

What Seattle is talking about

Still looking for a COVID vaccine? There are over 10,000 appointments available at the four city-affiliated vaccination sites through next Monday. Anyone who is over the age of 16 and either lives or works in King County can sign up for a spot. (City of Seattle)

Fighting for food sovereignty by growing Native foods. Sovereignty Farm is a farm-to-table project from the Chief Seattle Club, which aims to grow native plants that can be served in a future cafe. The loss of access to traditional foods has hindered Native communities' ability to carry on traditions — which is why growing Native foods is so important. (Crosscut)

It’s beginning to look a lot like...springtime. Puget Sound’s marine life is thriving, there are more humpbacks and gray whales, harbor porpoises and seals, not to mention more sea lions in the waters than a generation ago. This didn’t happen on its own though; it took decades, government policy, and a concerted effort to protect the Sound’s mammals. (The Seattle Times)

ICYMI this dive bar is suing the Seattle Kraken for its name. The Kraken Bar & Lounge, business in the U District, announced last Friday that they’re suing the NHL franchise for $3.5 million. As The Stranger points out, what’s more punk rock than that? (The Stranger)

Boon Boona’s new Seattle location is now open. The popular Renton coffee store opened its new Capitol Hill cafe near Seattle University on Monday. Currently, it’s only open for to-go orders, but the shop’s founder Efrem Fesaha hopes to do some pop-ups this summer and eventually offer booze. (Eater Seattle)

A Bruce Lee movie that Seattle never got. The new film “The Paper Tigers” pays homage to the martial arts legend with both its plot and filming location. It was filmed right here in Seattle’s Chinatown-International District and the plot includes the ghost of Bruce Lee. The action-comedy is set to get a wide release in May. (Seattle Met)

One more thing …

Last Saturday was Independent Bookstore Day. We gave Evergrey Extra members a special guide to some of our favorite bookstores last week, but that doesn’t mean you can’t support these businesses year-round. Besides, they’ve technically turned the celebration this year into a 10-day event considering the pandemic and how hard it’s hit small businesses. 

Check out Seattle Met’s guide to some local bookstores to support. And if you need some reading inspiration, Crosscut has you covered with five memoirs from PNWers you can pick up. 

Also, we're doing another "Have a drink with" on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. with the band Hi Crime. They've had their song featured as the KEXP Song of the Day and they just released a new single in March. Tune in to our Instagram to watch.

Thanks for reading to the end. You’re a champ.
