Seattle Met mag's Gas Works shoot on newsstands

June 23rd, 2010 · No Comments

You may recall that Seattle Met magazine recently arranged for a “flash mob” cover shoot at Gas Works Park to grace its “100 Things We Love About Seattle” issue. The July issue is available now on newsstands and online.

In addition to flash mobs, Seattle Met loves 99 other things about Seattle, including a few in Wallingford:

43. We Heart Butterfat: Molly Moon’s Ice Cream “proudly reports that it’s upped the butterfat content of its already uberrich product—from 14.5 percent to a whopping 19—making it the highest-butterfat ice cream you can buy in Seattle.”

62. We Take the “Independent” in Independent Radio Seriously:
“Broadcasting out of an attic in Wallingford [but soon to move to the Central District], Hollow Earth Radio, an all-volunteer, online-only station has, since 2007, fed our ears 24-7 with punk, metal, and surf music.”

66–70. Fancy Restaurants Serve Family Dinner on Sunday: “Business-savvy meets down-home nostalgia in a win-win trend: The Sunday Supper. Upmarket restaurants prop up their least popular day by setting out a family-style repast, which diners enjoy in a casual context for an old-fashioned tab … Joule dishes up BBQ, and Avila puts on all-you-can-eat multicourse feasts.”

Get to the whole list here, and (forgive the flagrant self-promotion) see a slideshow of the Gas Works event, courtesy of My Wallingford, here.
