We haven’t done a Beacon Bits in a while, so here goes. This time we got a few emails from folks that we want to pass on to you. First, Jeff writes:
“Down here in S. Seattle, we have been having a litter problem. The Seattle Times has an advertising paper that they deliver by contracting it out. The delivery folks just toss it out of a moving car to every home that does not get the Times. This creates an unsightly mess, as well as advertising when people are out of town.
“I have contacted the Times multiple times, to no avail. They insist it is their right to litter our neighborhood! I know of several other neighborhoods adversely affected by this issue as well. I started an on-line petition. Can you please post it to your Blog and ask folks to both sign it, and disseminate it through emails or social media such as Facebook? This is an issue all Seattle neighborhoods should be concerned about and can work together on. Here is the link to the petition.
“My partner and I recently bought a house down on S. Juneau & Beacon Ave. about 2 months ago now. Sunday morning, around about 3am-8am, someone stole our car from our driveway.”
Please contact Bobby at BbDgtl@gmail.com if you happen upon a 2002 green Honda Civic with the plate 811ZVA.
“I would like everyone to know that I have started my new business on Beacon Hill and I want to thank the people who supported me ‘Frank’s Hot Dogs’ on Saturday, my first day of business. I put the cart, on the South/East corner lot of the El Centro de la Raza, east of the taco trailer or right next to it. For my first day it was fun, even though it rained the whole time I was open, I still enjoyed being there. I want to let everyone know, that I wanted to be open Monday through Friday, 11:00 to at least 5:00, possibly Saturday and closed on Sunday. Because the restaurant, El Quetzal where I do my clean up, is closed on Mondays, I will now be open Tuesday through Saturday, 11:00 to at least 5:00. Then, at 9:00 pm, on Saturday nights, I will be on Beacon Ave. at El Quetzal until after the bars close.”
“Would you be willing to mention Tippe & Drague’s Sunday brunch in the blog? We offer it from 9:30am – 1:30pm.”

Ooooo, Sunday brunch at the Tippe and Drague? Melissa, if you’re reading, would you mind posting the menu? 🙂 ‘Cause that sounds awesome…
(Also, yay for the new hot dog stand!)
Not sure if it will effect those Seattle Times inserts, but I have found that following the instructions on Seattle’s Yellow Pages/catalog opt out lists has greatly reduced the amount of garbage that get’s dropped on my door step.
I don’t get the Seattle Times insert thing, but I live on Mid-Beacon Hill, and maybe my neighborhood isn’t one that gets them regardless.
Bad news, Tyler — the 9th Circuit Court just declared Seattle’s phone book opt-out law as unconstitutional! http://blogs.findlaw.com/decided/2012/10/phonebook-bans-endangered-by-9th-cir-yellow-pages-ruling.html
