– And although it was nothing compared to the parties of election night, we started the year with a street party celebrating the inauguration of Barack Obama.
And we did a little self-reflection about what all this Obama enthusiasm, and it’s resulting flood of Obama inspired art, meant about us as a community.
– With the opening of the first section of light rail just months away, Sound Transit started prepping the site of our Capitol Hill station. Thanks to their START program we got some temporary art installed in the soon-to-be demolished buildings.
– But the art was only temporary…
– By the time summer rolled around we were ready for a party in the park.
– And of course some drunken craziness in Pike/ Pine
We capped off the year by continuing our trend of being on the right side of elections, by helping to elect Mike McGinn, who both announced his candidacy on the hill and held his election night (victory!) party on the hill, at the now closed War Room.
– And I’ll leave you with this timelapse video from in and around Cap Hill.
