Seattle in Summer 2016 - what's a don't-miss?

FamilyLucinda is planning a vacation to Seattle this summer. We have no real time constraints, so I'm wondering what sort of big events are coming to the city during July and August that we should factor into our decisions? Figure we'll hit all the big tourist attractions and museums already. Things involving the Arts & Crafts movement (particularly woodworking), bowling and roller derby are a definite plus.

Seattle-adjacent anniversary "weekend"

We have next Monday and Tuesday free for our anniversary and are looking for a last-minute overnight outing in or near Seattle (less than 1 hour or so away). Ideally the trip includes at least some of the following: great food including a possibly slightly fancy dinner, a swanky or at least interesting place to stay, water views, bookstores, light to moderate outdoorsiness, strange museums or art, low-key adventure. It need not include Hallmark-card-style "romance." It MUST include at least one really kickass sandwich. [more inside]

suggestions for a solo afternoon in Seattle?

I will be a woman of leisure later this week with a free afternoon in Seattle. I haven't been there in over 5 years - is there anything new that I should see or do, downtown-ish? Bonus points if it gets me near a Top Pot Donut location. I'll be light railing from the airport and need to eventually make it downtown or to Capitol Hill by dinner time.

Need recommendations for cross-country movers!

My wife and I are moving across the country (PHL -> SEA) and are starting to research moving options. We are looking for recommendations for reliable and easy-to-work-with moving companies who do cross-country moves (or warnings of companies that you would avoid). Other tips and tricks for making this the easiest move possible are also welcome! [more inside]

Best beaches in or within a day of Seattle?

We're new-ish to the Seattle area and we'd like to find the best beaches for us and our 14-month-old to hang out and build sand castles and stuff at in or around the Seattle area. Bonus points if they have a playground also but we'd prefer awesome beaches with no playgrounds to okay beaches with them. [more inside]

Seattle Wedding Venues?!!!

My fiancee and I (very recently engaged!) are trying to plan a wedding in Seattle for this September (2015) - it's starting to feel a bit short notice, and while we've gotten some great tips and are exploring some fun looking venues, we don't live near Seattle. At the moment, we're really focused on finding a venue. I'd greatly appreciate any tips or thoughts people have! A few more details regarding what we're looking for are inside. [more inside]

Seattle visit in January - How to get around, where to stay, what to see

My wife and I are visiting Portland, OR for a conference in January, and decided to tack on a quick visit to Seattle afterwards. We know Portland pretty well, but neither of have been to Seattle. We were hoping to use public transit there, but my wife has trouble walking long distances or standing for long periods of time, so we'd need lines that have very frequent and predictable arrivals.

Where should I live for an easy (transit) commute to downtown Seattle?

I'm hoping for a commute that's as painless and short as possible (<30min door to door). Office is near the public library (around 5th Ave and Columbia). I'll be looking for a house with a backyard and a good school district. I know traffic is a bear, and I don't love driving, so if there's any way to do this by public transit or (I wish!) walking, that would be ideal. But if I have to park, I will.
