West Seattle Weekend Lineup, post-Christmas edition

(“Plaid Tidings” photo by Matt Durham from mattdurhamphotography.com)
No need for the between-holiday blahs. Still lots going on this weekend, including your last 3 chances to see “Plaid Tidings” at ArtsWest (WSB sponsor) – and while you’re there, you can chip in to help them recover from that costly pre-Christmas break-in. Several other ways to keep the post-Christmas giving going are among the more than 2 dozen events in the holiday-abbreviated-but-still-lively edition of the West Seattle Weekend Lineup, brought to you by Skylark Cafe and Club (home of tonight’s End of the Decade Party) – all ahead:

Thanks, Skylark Cafe and Club, for sponsoring the WSWL!

    Today is the first day of Kwanza. Kwanzaa is a unique African American celebration with focus on the traditional African values of family, community responsibility, commerce, and self-improvement.

      Thanks. No local events have come to our attention (and we do web searches to find items as well as publishing those for which we get notices) but we’ll make a note of the observance in the events calendars – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
