Hidden Secrets of Seattle’s Central District
After a few rough years, one of the Central District’s most renown places, Jackson’s Catfish Corner, made a triumphant return to the neighborhood last year. If you love fried fishy goodness – then this place is a must. Catfish Corner was well established when I moved to Seattle in 1988 and seeing it close felt like a huge loss. Now that it is back again let’s hope they stick around for another 30 years. Another killer neighborhood spot is Central Cinema, one of the few places in the city, other than your own living room, where you can watch a movie while enjoying snacks and a cocktail. This quirky movie house offers a dazzling array of films from Dial M for Murder to Shawn of the Dead. Whether it’s Indie, Cult, Classic or something in between – you might find it showing at Central Cinema. They also have a Prince vs. Michael Jackson sing-a-long coming up, where you may find this Diva hanging out if you drop by.
Swim Year Round at Medgar Evers
You don’t necessarily think about swimming year round in Seattle. It sounds like more of a summer activity, but swimming is a great workout. If your gym membership doesn’t come with pool access or you’re not swimming with the Orca community team, look no further. Seattle Parks and Rec operates eight indoor pools. Medgar Evers is one of those, located on 23rd Ave next to the Garfield Community Center. Offering a wide array of programs for all ages. Enjoy a 25 yard, 6 lane pool that is kept at 85 degrees year round. They offer early morning times, lessons, water exercise classes, lap, and public swimming. Dive on in!
