WEST SEATTLEITE’S WEBBED WEDDING: One of the most interesting netizens we’ve met along the way during WSB’s four-plus years is Jerry, proprietor of the eclectic site JetCityOrange. Saturday night, he tweeted the news that he and his beloved are going to get married at noon today, and you’ll be able to watch live at JCO – www.jetcityorange.com/wedding – with the webcam going live about an hour ahead of time.
DINING GUIDE REMINDER: If you still haven’t decided where to dine, check the listings in the West Seattle Valentine’s Day Dining Guide we published earlier this week (and have since updated several times) – the fun starts early, with brunch specials at Skylark Cafe and Club (WSB sponsor), including the debut of the mimosa carafe, which proprietor Jessie SK told us the other day will become a regular feature.
VALENTINES AND ELVIS AT THE FARMERS’ MARKET: Special events today at West Seattle Farmers’ Market (10 am-2 pm at 44th/Alaska) – “Elvis” reportedly might just be out and about with a “hunka hunka burnin’ love” between 11 am and 1 pm; meantime, market managers write in e-mail, “We have a Make-Your-Own-Valentines workshop set up at both markets. Paper, lace, hearts, glitter, glue – everything you and your sweetie need to say I Love You through low-tech honest art.” Meantime, today’s full Ripe and Ready List is here.

SERENADED AT THE STORE: Metropolitan Market (WSB sponsor) in Admiral will have live harp music 1-3 pm today (and plans to chocolate-dip strawberries for the second consecutive day, noon-4 pm).
