Ice cream cones
Our editors are still recovering from GelatoGate 2011, the week-long orgy of ice-cream eating that preceeded our June issue (on newsstands today). Our award-winning and downright awesome food editor Ali Scheff made the picks, our fantastically talented art director Sue Boylan called in the props, and then it was ice cream everywhere for two weeks here at SeaMag.

Seattle fireworks
A $25,000 donation by Coca-Cola has just closed the gap on funding Seattle's annual 4th of July fireworks display ("Family 4th at Lake Union"), proving for the second year in a row that the show can go on without a major title sponsor (so, no, it won't be called the "Coke Family 4th"). Organizers at One Reel say the party starts at noon at Gas Works Park (2101 N. Northlake Way) on Monday, July 4 and features games and entertainment (details TBA). For more info, click here.

After putting a call out via social media for votes on where the third Molly Moon’s Ice Cream shop should open (and drumming up an impressive amount of neighborhood enthusiasm in the process), Molly Moon Neitzel has decided to open not one but two new shops, one in each of the top vote-getting ‘hoods.

Even though he's in real estate now, Billy Poll says he feels like he grew up in the restaurant industry. The longtime Schwartz Bros employee is now one of the owners of the soon-to-open Grace Kitchen at the University Village. Poll told me the opening is slated for August; the restaurant is moving into the old Zao's locale.

In this entrepreneurial town, we like to do things on our own time and that includes being active. Whether there’s one last work project that can't wait or The Bachelorette conflicts with your Monday night tennis league, having a weekly team sport commitment just doesn’t always jive with our free-spirit attitude. Perhaps that’s why Seattle has such a lively pick-up sports scene.  From badminton to basketball, here’s your guide to getting sporty on the fly.

Imagine a Seattle waterfront composed of terraced parks that change with the tides...ringed by a two-lane bike path...with a stormwater collection system and solar panels and other sustainable energy sources. Walkability is key, and the waterfront is connected to downtown via public spaces, stairways, ramps and promenades.
