Plus, the Crocodile reopens next week and where to find your new favorite bar downtown.

By The Evergrey Staff

Welcome to Thursday!

In case you haven't heard, we want to know what you're feeling extra grateful for this year (and if you have heard, just scroll down to the next part of the newsletter). We’ve already received some responses that are making our day brighter, like this one from The Evergrey reader, Barbara F.

“I am giving thanks that my friend is alive after having a stem cell transplant treatment for cancer in February this year. He is still struggling to recover from this extreme treatment, but I am grateful that I can still enjoy his companionship and his wonderful sense of humor. His cancer is in remission so I hope to have many more years to share holidays with him.”

Email us your answers at through Sunday, and by this time next week, you’ll get to see what everybody sent in. We can't wait to hear what you have to share!

For now, let's keep on scrolling for today's headlines.

What Seattle is talking about 

🎟 If you’ve been wondering, “When does the Crocodile open?,” wonder no more: The local destination venue has plans of reopening to the public on Wednesday, Dec. 1, as a new multi-venue entertainment complex, and all first-week shows are already sold out. (The Crocodile)

🙏 Wanna help local flood victims in nearby Whatcom and Skagit counties? We can help you with that. You can donate to the Resilience Fund, which the Whatcom Community Foundation is matching dollar for dollar when it comes to donations up to $115,000. (King 5

🌝 It’s still possible to catch tonight’s lunar eclipse if the weather permits. The celestial event will go down in history as the longest partial eclipse ever, lasting 3 hours, 28 minutes, and 23 seconds beginning around 11:18 p.m. PST tonight, but if the clouds don’t cooperate, we won’t even know. (Seattle Pi

🚘 Hey Seattle drivers, you should be even more on alert. The city is piloting a new program that will use cameras to ticket you for traffic violations like blocking crosswalks and intersections or illegally using transit lanes. (King 5

🛣 If you’ve ever wondered who should clear the sidewalk, the answer 80 to 85% of the time is the private homeowner. Crosscut did a deep dive on why so many Seattle sidewalks are in such bad shape and who is responsible for fixing it, which you can check out at the link. 👉 (Crosscut)

🏡 How much money would you pay to live in an old firehouse? $1.68 million, maybe? If so, boy do we have a deal for you. This almost 3,800 square foot home in Kirkland with four bedrooms and 2.5 baths is going for at least that. (Seattle Met

🍸 Behind a bookcase, that’s where your new favorite downtown bar is located. Just yesterday, the Fairmont Olympic Hotel debuted its not-so-secret speakeasy, The Founders Club, hidden behind a bookstore at the Olympic Bar. You can see it for yourself Tuesday through Saturday so long as you make a reservation. 😉(Eater Seattle

One last thing before you go….

If you live in Seattle's district three (that includes Capitol Hill, the Central District, Madison Park, Leschi and Madrona, and surrounding neighborhood parts), election season isn't quiiiiite over. Ballots were sent out yesterday for a vote on the recall of District 3’s Seattle City Councilmember, Kshama Sawant. 

Why the vote? Long story short, in August of 2020 a District 3 resident filed a recall complaint against Sawant, claiming that she misused both her office resources and her position as a councilmember. The Washington State Supreme Court ruled that the recall could move forward with three key complaints, and now there's a vote in which the 75,000 voters of District 3 are eligible to vote on. Ballots are due on Tuesday, Dec. 7.

Thanks for sticking with us ‘til the end. We’ll see you tomorrow!
