Welcome to Friday! A few things of note for today/tonight:
CITY COUNCIL BUDGET VOTES: If there’s anything you’re watching closely, keep an eye on the meeting that’s under way now (watch at seattlechannel.org). We spotted some items of interest on the agenda – including design money for improving the lower-bridge bike trail and construction/design money for the Delridge Neighborhood Greenway (they are on this budget sheet).
LAST DAY FOR COMMUNITY ART SHOWCASE: Have you seen the community-art show at Southwest Library yet? Today’s your last chance! The library at 35th and Henderson is open 10 am-6 pm today.
SPEAKING OF LIBRARIES – they’re closed Sunday for Veterans Day.
SPEAKING OF VETERANS DAY – USO BENEFIT TONIGHT: Merrill Gardens-Admiral Heights (WSB sponsor; 2326 California SW) is hosting a benefit for the USO tonight, 7-10 pm, with “heavy appetizers,” beer/wine, games, and more. Admission is a $10 minimum donation. Full details in our calendar listing.
CHIEF SEALTH ‘PASSPORT TO EXCELLENCE’: They’re not selling tickets at the door, so this is just a reminder that if you have a ticket to the school’s annual fundraising dinner/auction, tonight’s the night, 6 pm, The Hall at Fauntleroy.
LIVE MUSIC TONIGHT – 5 venues! The listings are all on the WSB West Seattle Events Calendar list for today’s date – click the “plus” sign on the right side of any calendar line to expand that listing, and then “read more” for even more info, as well as a map to the venue.
