About Us

Founded in 1976 by an East Coast transplant named David Brewster, the award-winning Seattle Weekly has had an inquisitive eye trained on the city since Seattle was a dreary little blip on America's radar, best known for airplanes, clinical depression, acres of clams and rain ... lots and lots of rain. Since then we've watched our city transform, the verdant landscape giving way to Microsoft, grunge, double-tall lattes, Amazon.com, soaring condominium towers, fusion cuisine, and a second floating bridge. But one thing has remained constant: Seattle Weekly's stellar, engaging journalism that exposes municipal malfeasance just as often as it celebrates the wizards behind our civic curtain. Pair that with top-shelf food, music and arts coverage and it's no wonder Rainier drinkers and oenophiles alike have made picking up Seattle Weekly a priority every week for going on 40 years.
