    I absolutely love the format of your event postings. Very easy to use. Thanks!

    The Nature Consortium is also collaborating with EarthCorps to host the volunteer environmental restoration event at West Duwamish Greenbelt tomorrow (Saturday). This promises to be a really wonderful event in a beautiful and really unique park. I will post pictures of the event next week.

    Hey, that’s me in there at C&P!

    I post here only occasionally, mainly due to a wild full time job, but I check now and then and my wife Sue also feeds me updates. There is just excellent information here at the WSB.

    I do live on Fauntleroy near Dawson and will be there Saturday by 6PM playing mostly original keyboard & percussion music. C&P has great lattes too. :-)

    Then Sue and I will probably hit the Admiral Theater for Fantastic 4 and/or Shrek III. Perhaps one of the other music acts too.

    Is Chicken Run really playing? The Cinema site says Raiders of the Lost Ark is tonight. I’d love to take the kids if you are right!
    Thanks!

    Raiders of the Lost Ark is supposed to be tomorrow night (Saturday 8/11) … there wasn’t originally a movie for Friday night but when “Chicken Run” was rained out on July 21, they posted it would be rescheduled to August 10th. We are not in a position to go over in person to check but we would suggest calling Hotwire Coffeehouse to ask — they should know since it’s literally in their backyard.

Sorry, comment time is over.
