Hard to believe the summer is almost over. Labor Day is this coming Monday so it must be true.
Will your Eastlake business be open on Monday? If so, what hours will you be open and are you planning anything special? Please post your details in the comments below or email me at email@example.com. I'll post the list later this week.
Have a great holiday!
Eastlake businesses were open this morning and traffic was moving on Eastlake Ave. despite the snow. A good two to three inches of snow had fallen by lunch time.
It looks like most businesses are open although it's always a good idea to call ahead to check. I noted that Louisa's Cafe Bakery, Voxx Coffee, the 14 Carrot Cafe and Starbucks were open, as were numerous other stores on Eastlake Avenue E. Ed Wyse Beauty Supplies was open but just closed due to lack of customers.
Little Water Cantina says they're open.
If your business is open, add it to the comment list below.
Traffic was moving on Eastlake (check out our video) and buses were appearing, although I'm not sure if they're on schedule or not. Metro has noted that all buses will remain on snow routes today. There have been some route cancellations but none that affect Eastlake.
Side streets are still slick and tricky. Try to avoid driving if you can. The Lynn Street hill was bedeviling drivers earlier this morning so you might want to try to avoid it.
There won't be any garbage, yard waste or recycling pickups today.
What's it like in your part of the neighborhood? Share what you're up to in the comments or note where there are problems.
It's almost 2012 and Eastlake is getting ready to celebrate!
Here are the local businesses that will be open on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. This list isn't definitive. Businesses not listed may be open. Call to check ahead.

Happy New Year!
NEW YEAR’S EVE (Saturday, Dec. 31)

Good morning and happy Fourth of July!
Lady Liberty is inflated atop Kite Hill at Gas Works Park and the forecast, while it won't be as warm as last year, isn't bad: partly cloudy, highs in the upper 60s. If it rains, it looks like it won't be much more than a sprinkle. Maybe.
Here's a wrap-up of our Fourth of July coverage:
Have a happy Fourth of July!
It's the first big holiday of the summer: Memorial Day is this coming Monday, May 31.

Christmas Eve is the time to shop and eat out in Eastlake because stores and restaurants will mostly be open. But note that many places will be closing early.
On Christmas Day, not much is stirring in Eastlake ... but a few places will be open. Check the list to see which businesses will be open.
I'd like to encourage you to patronize our local, Eastlake businesses as much as possible this holiday season. They're a great bunch of people and the neighborhood would be at a loss without them.

Everyone is bracing for record crowds descending on Eastlake for the Fourth of July. Those crowds and police traffic restrictions will make it tricky heading out for supplies.
What to do if you run out of ice or want a latte or a beer? Go local!
Many businesses in Eastlake, everything from food to flowers, will be open for the Fourth. The list is after the jump.
UPDATE: Added two more restaurants that will be open on the Fourth. Also, Louisa's hours updated and special menu items added. The Seattle Times has a city-wide list of what's open and closed on the holiday.
