I recently hopped into a Tesla Roadster with Seattle magazine’s managing editor, John Levesque, author of the July Trend piece on the city's newest in sleek electric cars ("Plug 'n' Play"). This battery operated car might be the size of a handicapped bathroom stall and made of plastic, but it still had the look (and speed) of a classic roadster.

How often does an emerging Seattle artist get selected by a national corporation to produce work for a global sports event? Well now we can say at least once. I'm so thrilled for local artist (and Seattle magazine 2008 Spotlight Award winner) Diem Chau, who was tapped to carve 66 of her signature Crayola crayon sculptures (NO, not the jumbo size, the regular, tiny size) with the likenesses of 6 famous players for Nike's World Cup press kits.

There are ballets out there that everyone knows—chestnuts, like The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, etc.. Then there are the ones that aren't so well known.

Forget to buy tickets to the Seattle Art Museum’s sold-out Remix tonight? There's still hope. The first 100 guests at the door donning wigs get into the party for free.

My sources tell me the lines usually start around 6:45 p.m., so the ticket-poor should arrive early.

I was recently contacted by the King County Noxious Weed Control Program because one of their staffers had identified Garlic Mustard, a seemingly innocuos little flowering plant that was not so slowly making huge and unwelcome inroads into our region's flora, growing on my property.
