Tonight: Taste of West Seattle; Kenney review; Art Walk; concert

TASTE OF WEST SEATTLE: Why wait for the Bite of Seattle when you can try the Taste of West Seattle? It’s happening tonight, benefiting West Seattle Helpline, 6 pm at The Hall at Fauntleroy, with participating food/beverage providers: Alki Bakery, Bakery Nouveau, Beveridge Place Pub, The Bohemian, Cafe Revo (WSB sponsor), Cupcake Royale, Eats Market Cafe, Elliott Bay Brewing, Endolyne Joe’s, Husky Deli, Lee’s Asian, Metropolitan Market, Prost, Salty’s, Starbucks, Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes, West 5, West Seattle Cellars. $40/door. P.S. Helpline executive director Anna Fern also tells us, “We are also having a raffle of 24 donated gift certificates from local restaurants and business. And an auction for four items: Beecher’s Cheesemaker of the Day, Crowley Tug Ride at Maritime Festival, Art of the Table Supper, and Health through Hypnosis.”

kenneycupola.jpgDESIGN REVIEW FOR THE KENNEY: On the heels of last week’s community meeting to unveil the newest design proposals (WSB coverage here), comes tonight’s Southwest Design Review Board meeting – 6:30 pm, Senior Center of West Seattle. These meetings always include ample opportunity for public comment, so if you have something to say about The Kenney’s $150 million redevelopment proposal, be there.

WEST SEATTLE ART WALK: The weather’s supposed to get better as the day goes on, but even if it doesn’t, note that the dozens of venues are indoors, with amazing art everywhere. Many displays are spotlighted on the official Art Walk site; one highlight is the opening reception for the student art show in the ArtsWest gallery. The Art Walk happens 6-9 tonight; get your map here.

FOOD BANK BENEFIT CONCERT: Also in The Junction, tonight’s the night that the junior high youth group at Holy Rosary is presenting Dennis Zender in concert as a benefit for the West Seattle Food Bank – admission is free, just bring a nonperishable food item. 7 pm.

Other events for tonight – including a discussion of the Duwamish River’s health, the West Seattle High School musical and the tango at Endolyne Joe‘s! – are on the WSB West Seattle Events calendar.

    there’s so much great stuff going on in WS tonight- how do you choose?

    I’ve always been curious about the Taste of West Seattle, and the flyers have always been vague: When you purchase a ticket, do you also get samples of the food/drink included, or are you buying admittance so that you can then purchase those samples? And in looking at the vendors involved, it looks like it’s potentially a lot of sugar and/or alcohol – is there actual “real” food there? Would you need to go somewhere for dinner when you’re done because all you’ve eaten is cupcakes and beer? :)

    The Taste of West Seattle is a great event and I recommend checking it out. There’s no need to eat before going since the participating restaurants bring so many great offerings, but they have run out in the past so get there early. The $40 includes as much food as you’d like (within reason, of course). Good way to sample popular food items from local restaurants and it’s all for a great cause. Bring cash or check to pay for admission if you haven’t purchased a ticket because paying with a CC is a slower process!

    The flyer online at the Helpline site says it starts at 6:30, and it is $35 advance/$35 door.

    MsBette, the flyer that is shown above is the one they sent me late yesterday. It says 6 pm/$35-$40. I’ll send Anna a note to inquire.
