What’s open, what’s running on Thanksgiving Day

UPDATE: This post has been changed since it was first published. The Flower Lady has been added.

Wondering what’s open and which buses are running on Thanksgiving? Here’s the info:

WHAT’S OPEN: Other than groceries and mini-marts, not much (even the Zoo is closed):

  • 14 Carrot Cafe, 2305 Eastlake Ave. E.: 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Voxx Coffee, 2245 Eastlake Ave. E: 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Starbucks, 2344 Eastlake Ave. E.: 5 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Flower Lady, 3230 Eastlake Ave. E.: Morning and early afternoon

METRO BUS ROUTES: Metro runs a Sunday schedule on Thursday and a reduced weekday schedule on Friday. If your route doesn’t normally run on a Sunday, it won’t run on Thanksgiving day.

Routes with some trip cancellations on Friday include 49 and 70. Route 988 is canceled on Friday.

Metro’s Customer Information Office is closed from 6 a.m. Wednesday morning to 6 a.m. Saturday morning in a cost-saving furlough day.

GARBAGE, FOOD, YARD WASTE, RECYCLING COLLECTIONS: None of these services will be operating on Thursday. Recycling and disposal stations will also be closed on Thursday, open on Friday.

Seattle Public Utilities advises that most of the waste from your Thanksgiving dinner — turkey bones, celery, yams, potatoes, etc. — can go in your food and yard waste carts. And, be kind to the sewers, they say, by not pouring dairy products, fats, oil, grease or greasy foods down the drain. Put those in a lidded container and put them in the trash.
