This Wednesday, October 15, David Mura will be reading from his novel Famous Suicides of the Japanese Empire at the Beacon Hill Library, 2821 Beacon Ave. S., at 6:30 pm. I haven’t read this book yet, but I did read his Turning Japanese: Memoirs of a Sansei some years ago, and it was quite good.
Heather and Sarah of Buggy, your local baby feed & tack, are pleased to invite the neighborhood to help celebrate Buggy’s first birthday tomorrow, Sunday, October 12th. There will be live music by Brian Vogan, as well as free cupcakes and coffee. The celebrating starts at 11:30am. Buggy is located at 3315 Beacon Avenue South. For more information, call 206-325-5999.
Thanks to Sarah for the announcement list posting!
I was excited to see this time-lapse video of a trip from Othello Station almost all the way to the Tukwila light rail station:
I can’t wait for the train to open to the public — I just wish we would get more train lines, and faster! But this one will be great for getting from Beacon Hill to the airport, downtown, the stadiums, and just about anywhere in between. Next summer can’t get here quickly enough, as far as I’m concerned.
Via Seattle Transit Blog — thanks!

Welcome to the Beacon Hill Blog. We’re just getting started here, putting together the pieces we hope will become a useful resource for our neighborhood. In the meantime, we encourage you to join the neighborhood mailing list(s).
The blog may be a little rough around the edges for a bit — we’ll be adding and improving things as time goes on. We hope you like it!
