It’s the last Sunday of another month, so it’s time for another Ravenna Blog Rewind.
Here are some stories of note from Octobers past:
5: Steve Jobs remembered at University Village Apple Store – It just so happened that at the time of Jobs’ passing, the University Village Apple Store was undergoing a “refresh,” and the outside of the windows was covered with a layer of thin black plastic, perfect for leaving condolences and rememberences on. We went down on three different occasions to record the growing memorial.
16: Say hello to new Ravenna Blog staff! – We had a baby. And we are happy to report that he is still pretty cute and very smiley.
19: University Village Microsoft Store opens this Thursday – And a giant stage filled the north U-Village parking lot. It was all quite something.
26: S. Germany comes to Ravenna – Heidelberg Haus menu revealed! – No post pleases us more to write than news of a new restaurant coming to the neighborhood. We’ve been to HH a couple times now, and the excellent-yet-simple food has won us over. See also: Very tall German beers.
28: Ravenna and neighboring ‘hoods win $50,000 from CleanScapes – Most of the money has been awarded to Sustainable NE Seattle’s Tool Library, which will be housed in a building near the corner of NE 80th St and 25th Ave NE.
6: NE Library Firefighter Story Time: When you gotta go, you gotta go – Firefighters read a story, show off their gear, and then get called away before showing off their engine. Lots of pictures, and video of their exit.
8: Lost White Ferret APB – More info (sort of) – Hyperlocal news at its best!
21: Obama-cade: The video! - No matter your political preference, it is still quite a site to see the leader of your country drive his motorcade through your neighborhood. The video has now been viewed on YouTube 357,274 times, which is also quite something.
31: HAPPY HALLOWEEN! - We’re still very proud of our creative use of zucchinis-gone-wild.
15: Neighborhood 911 – First post on the RB involving a fire in the neighborhood. The SEO-less title is kind of cringe worthy, but we like looking back at these early stories to see how far we’ve come in our neighborhood news reporting abilities.
