HAPPY NEW YEAR - here’s what’s on tap at tPC!
Meet Christine Yoo
The tPC team is excited to introduce Christine Yoo, our new resident photographer! Christine is a lifestyle photographer who will be taking photos around the space of our members & events. Please be sure to make her feel welcomed & check out her work at her website. Definitely keep her in mind for your photography needs!
tPC is Looking for a Community Lead!
The Pioneer Collective is looking to add another Community Lead to our team. If you are unfamiliar, our CL Program is a work trade where an individual receives a free Community Access membership (+ some other awesome perks) in exchange for working a couple shifts a week. If you or someone you know is interested, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit our site.
Mobile Flu Shot Clinic
The Mobile Flu Shot Clinic will be at tPC in early January so keep your eye out for more information after the Holidays. *Most insurance companies cover the entire cost of a flu shot!
Don’t forget about the Viaduct Closure (as if you could)
Starting Jan. 11th the viaduct will officially be closed as they prepare for the new tunnel. For up to 6 weeks things could get a little dicey in terms of commuting so consider the following:
Shift your travel time to avoid the busiest times on the roadway
Bike or walk to work
Start or join a carpool, vanpool or vanshare
Use transit, particularly light rail and King County Water Taxi
Be prepared for your new route when the closure ends and the new tunnel opens.
For more information, check out the website here.
Speaking of the Viaduct…
Don’t forget to register for the Tunnel to Viaduct 8k! tPC has a team & many of us have already registered. Tip: the sooner you register, the cheaper it is! The race is February 2nd & there are events all weekend including an art show!

What we’re watching
Drug$ - Chris’ best childhood friend, Jonathan Marshall Thompson, directed this feature length documentary about price gouging and greed in the pharmaceutical industry and the patients affected by it. It will make you angry, sad, and question our healthcare system more than you probably already do. Available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
Big World - a heartwarming mini documentary that Audrey’s brother Dave and our seven year old nephew Thorne shot over Spring Break last year. They paddled down a remote river in Nepal on a SUP with nothing but a camera, a map and and some gear.
What we’re reading
Chris - “I just finished The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. I’m not a huge fantasy reader normally, so I was unaware of the uncertainty surrounding the third book in the trilogy when I started the series. Now I must come to terms with the fact that I may die unsatisfied. Also - huge thanks to our neighbors at Arundel Books for turning me on to these books. They are great. Please visit while you’re in the neighborhood.”
Audrey - “I’m rereading The Life and Death of Great American Cities by Jane Jacobs”
What we’re listening to
We don’t know yet, but here’s a list of our top songs from 2018 according to Spotify.
