We forgot to celebrate the Beacon Hill Blog’s second birthday on Sunday. The first post on the blog was on October 10, 2008. In our first month we posted about pancakes, dead electronics, presidential debates, and some topics that are still seen today: light rail and garden thefts. Our first crime report was about a shooting at 16th and Spokane in which a 17 year old was shot in the leg after he and his girlfriend “exchanged words.”
We also posted about some since-departed local businesses (Buggy, Grown Folks Coffee) and some that are still around (Hello Bicycle, and Beacon Pub—though the latter is leaving soon).
Our first Beacon Bits post was on October 17, 2008, and featured Spokane Street construction, cheap coffee in Sodo, and local bus route changes.
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.
