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.

Memorable Sunday lunch in seattle

I'm in Seattle with my girlfriend for a wedding. It's her hometown, but she hasn't lived here in about eight years. We unexpectedly have some free time for lunch tomorrow (Sunday) in or near downtown Seattle. I'd love to take her somewhere fun, with great, interesting and/or memorable food - surprise her with something. Any recommendations for a last minute Sunday lunch? We eat everything and any price is fine. Thanks!

A stargazing destination for little kids around Seattle?

My kids (3 & 5) both love to hear about space and space travel. But living in Seattle means they rarely see any stars. In the spring and summer it's light past their bedtime. In the fall and winter it's often cloudy, and when it isn't, there's tons of light pollution. I want to take them on a trip where they can see the night sky in all its glory. [more inside]

Broker hunting in Seattle

I'm doing a 3-month internship in Seattle this summer and I'm looking for an apartment. My budget is $2-3k/month. I think it would be too big a hassle to find a place myself (I'm only interested in apartments that are walking distance from the office), so I'd like to find a broker instead. How do I go about doing this? Thanks!

West-ward ho?

My partner and I are considering a move to Seattle from NYC and taking a brief trip there (arriving Saturday and leaving Tuesday) to discern how we'd like it. I've only been to Seattle once, years ago for just a few days. I'm rather attached to New York living, but want to keep an open mind. Any advice on how to most efficiently ascertain how we'd like living there? Sights to see? Factors to consider? [more inside]

A friend mentioned they were not to call AAA today about their car problems because it's a holiday and they don't want to inconvenience anybody. Would this really inconvenience people?
