A friendly Friday PSA to remind everyone about our Forum – it’s a venue for posting any questions you may have, lost & found items, missing pets, items for sale, and a heads-up on anything the community should be aware of (e.g. car prowls, suspicious persons, etc.).
We check the Forum daily, not just for spam, but also for any posts that should be highlighted on the blog. And, on that last point – here are some current Forum topics:
Owl Attack: a runner was attacked by an owl on the Crown of Queen Anne – coincidence that it’s nearly Halloween? Kidding aside, if you run or walk in the early morning or late evening near McGraw Place between Warren Ave N and Lorentz Place, there may be an attack owl nearby. If you’ve been a victim, weigh in!
Queen Anne Gym Deal: Seattle Gym on Queen Anne has a fall special with no enrollment fee and no monthly dues until Feb 1, 2013. Check out the details for more info.

Today is Veterans Day, a national holiday to honor the men and women who have served our country.
Many public organizations will be closed around town for the day in honor of veterans lost. The Metro bus service will be on a reduced service schedule, and there will be no service to the University of Washington.
The following businesses and organizations are closed today:
Post offices (and no mail delivery)
Seattle Public Library branches
Seattle Parks and Recreation facilities
Most government offices
Parking is free (you don’t have to pay to park on city streets that are metered today)
There are also several businesses around town celebrating Veterans Day by offering special deals and freebies to both retired and active military members and their families. Take a look at the list we’ve compiled of deals going on in Queen Anne and around it:
Bring in a reusable mug and get a free coffee at Starbucks all day today! The promotion is part of their corporate environmental campaign, The Big Picture: A Green Project. And the best part is, who doesn’t have a Starbucks in their neighborhood? (I know we do–at 2135 Queen Anne Avenue N, 1211 Dexter Ave, 305 Harrison St, 425 Queen Anne Ave N, plus kiosks at both the Upper and Lower QA Safeways and the Uptown QFC).
Get discounts and freebies at Cinnabon, P.F. Changs, McCormick and Schmick’s and more! Check out Monica Guzman’s report on the PI Big Blog for details.
