From the WSB West Seattle Events Calendar listings for today and tonight:

TRAFFIC ALERTS: As mentioned earlier this morning, the 1st Avenue S. water-main work isn’t finished yet (we’ll update this story when it is), plus there’s a noontime Mariners game today, so SODO will be busy. Tonight, there are TWO scheduled closures (per our weekly day-by-day/night-by-night list) – southbound 99/Alaskan Way Viaduct closed 9 pm-5 am, and eastbound Spokane Street Viaduct closed 10 pm-5 am.

HIGH POINT MARKET GARDEN FARM STAND: Fresh-vegetable sales continue weekly at the stand alongside the organic mini-farm at 32nd and Juneau, 4-7 pm Wednesdays (through September). More info here.

COMMUNITY MEETING AT BAMBOO BAR AND GRILL: 5:30-7:30 pm, in the aftermath of the fight/shooting incident outside Bamboo (2806 Alki SW) last Sunday morning (WSB coverage here and followup here), its management/ownership is organizing a meeting “to share the steps that we have been taking to promote a safer environment and to hear any suggestions West Seattle locals may have to offer.”

LAFAYETTE KINDERGARTEN PLAYDATE: With exactly two weeks to go until school starts, families of new Lafayette Elementary kindergarteners are invited to a playdate 5:30-7 pm – more here.

OPEN HOUSE: Arbor Heights Co-Op Preschool is holding an open house 6 pm today at Hillcrest Presbyterian Churchdetails and map here (including an RSVP request).

    I used to live near the Bamboo Bar… I’ve been in there twice late night… both times there were fights and once I almost caught an errant haymaker… after that I was done with it. Its good that they are having this meeting because there seem to be a lot of problems spilling out of that place…

    I also used to live around the corner from Bamboo Bar and Grill and only went there three times. Once there was a late night fight, one time I witnessed a drug deal, and the last time I got food poisoning after eating a burger (not related to physical safety, but food safety perhaps). Unless this business goes under new ownership or does a complete overhaul, I will never visit this establishment again. Shame on me for giving it so many chances. It is unfortunate this place seems to attract the late night clientele that it does.

    I used to live by the Bamboo 9+ years ago and it was WAY different………

    Can’t wait for the meeting. I’m sure it will help. Bahahaha!!

    I agree with Guy. Time to call the Liquor Board about getting their license yanked it is the only way to get a place like this to behave. Talk is cheap

    Nice pic, Paul. Any fish getting caught down at Seacrest?

Sorry, comment time is over.
