This Saturday Will Be A “Totally Wicked” Good Time

Halloween is just around the corner, and as any true fan of the holiday knows, it’s NEVER too early to start celebrating! This weekend presents just such an opportunity, in one of the coolest venues around.

Head down to the EMP for a ‘Totally Wicked’ party, this Saturday night (or fright…) for a scary good time. As part of their Hair-Raising ’31 Days of Horror’ series, the EMP will be hosting “Haunted Happy Hour: Like, Totally Wicked”, an amazingly spook-tacular 90’s throwback party.

Expect the shin-dig to be an over the top extravaganza, as is the custom with EMP parties, featuring totally boss 90’ tunes, giveaways, MovieCat! movie trivia, and of course, drink specials!  This party is sure to be a win for fans of Halloween, fans of any and all things 90’s and will be to DIE for for fans of both! happy_hour_totally_wicked

Happy Hour may be from 5-7, but the 90’s fun doesn’t have to stop then!

Stick around afterwards for the most fun you’ve ever had at the movies with a special Campout Cinemas presentation of the 90’s Halloween cult classic, Hocus Pocus.

Campout Cinema is an ongoing series at EMP in which all the fun of an outdoor movie comes inside the grandiose walls of the EMP’s Sky Church. Who needs a drive in when you have the gargantuan screen in the Skye Church, and a bar? Don’t forget to bring your own pillows, blankets and sleeping bags (just, no chairs, please!) and get cuddled up under a gorgeous ‘sky’, complete with LED ‘stars’!

hocus_pocus_screening_campoutTickets to Campout Cinema’s presentation of Hocus Pocus include admission to “Can’t Look Away: The Lure Of Horror Film” and, like most events at EMP, there are fabulous drink specials before the presentation and at intermission, as well as tons of fun and exciting surprises!

Campout Cinemas is known for providing a “Super Themed” movie going experience, so you can bet on tons of cooky, spooky fun at this show!

If you’re looking for a boo-tiful was to spend you weekend, EMP is the place to be…and BEWARE.

March-April Monthly Queen Anne Crime Recap

This is our first monthly Queen Anne crime recap, where we’ll be summarizing the criminal events of the last month or so. The intent is to keep our neighbors, business owners, and residents safe and knowledgeable about what’s happening in our community.

One more major thing of note for this month is that the Seattle Police Department has published their Quarterly Report online. Click here to read more.

The following are Queen Anne crime events that occurred between early March and mid-April in or very near to Queen Anne:

  • Burglary Botched: SPD officers responded to a 911 call at about 4:45 a.m. on March 12th. A woman sleeping in her apartment on the 1300 block of 2nd Avenue W woke to noise coming from her living room. When she went to investigate, she found an unknown man in the room. The victim pushed him out the front door and called 911. Officers who arrived on the scene did not initially find the suspect, however they remained on the scene and soon (just after 6 a.m.) received a call about a suspicious prowler nearby – on the 1400 block of 1st Avenue N. They found the suspect on a third floor balcony and arrested him without incident. Victims visited the scene and positively identified him.
  • Fireworks, Not Guns: SPD’s 911 call center was deluged at about 3:30 a.m. on March 19th with calls about what residents thought was gunshots in the Uptown area of Queen Anne, on the 400 block of W Republican Street. Officers who arrived on the scene determined that the suspects – witnesses had varying accounts of a man shooting a gun, a woman crying, and people running – had fled to a nearby apartment building. They contacted the suspects, who seemed drunk and smelled of marijuana. The woman explained that she and the male suspect had been outside shooting Roman Candles at each other – debris from the fireworks were later recovered from the street. SPD documented what had happened and requested Reckless Endangerment charges for the two suspects.
  • Train/Pedestrian Collision Results in Tragedy: SPD responded to a 911 call just after 5 a.m. on March 28th, which reported a train/pedestrian collision. According to the report, the train operator stopped when he felt the train strike something. A man was found underneath the train on the tracks near Elliott Avenue W and W Lee Street. The man was transported to Harborview, where he died as a result of his injuries, which were initially reported to be non-life-threatening. This remains an active investigation by the Traffic Collision Investigation Squad.
  • Two Alarm Fire Destroys 3 Homes: A house fire on the 700 block of Warren Avenue N on April 1st destroyed three homes, resulted in multiple nearby street closures, and seems to be an incendiary incident. No one was hurt in the fire, however damage to the homes is estimated at $560,000, with $55,000 estimated in damage to the homes’ contents, according to the King 5 report.
  • Human Remains Found: Seattle Parks workers discovered what appeared to be human bones while clearing blackberry bushes from the steep hillside on the east side of Queen Anne on April 11th, just before noon. They immediately called 911. Homicide and CSI units that responded to the scene investigated and determined that the remains had been there a long time. The King County Medical Examiner present took custody of the remains, and the KCME office with Homicide and CSI will continue to investigate.

Please stay safe, Queen Anne!
