West Seattle Saturday: Before you ‘fall back,’ what’s up today/tonight

(Thanks to Karen Richter, one of two people who shared photos of that new artwork spotted on the beach at Lincoln Park)
Tonight’s the night; an extra hour of sleep, as 2 am becomes 1 am, with Daylight Saving Time coming to an end. In the meantime, here are some of the options for your Saturday morning, noon, and/or night:

LIVE MUSIC: Various venues tonight – see the calendar (but please make note of the following, too) …

CALENDAR NOTE: Because of a software bug relating to tonight’s time change and the many time zones served by the software’s creators, a few calendar listings for tonight **only** are showing the wrong time – but we’ve put the CORRECT time in the headline (and in the text if you click through to the full listing). Please accept our apologies; all the other listings are just fine.

FALL BACK TONIGHT: As mentioned atop this roundup – 2 am will become 1 am, early Sunday morning. Early morning March 10, 2013, is when Daylight Saving Time will be back.

    This is so beautiful, I love it what a special treat to be walking along and see this.

  • coffee November 3, 2012 (12:31 pm)

    I just checked, the Evening to Die for has been canceled.

    • WSB November 3, 2012 (12:43 pm)

      thanks – that was sent to us as a listing and was not something we just happened to on the web; I just checked the mailbox and we hadn’t received any word of cancellation. Nor was that announced on their website or FB page so far as I can see.

Sorry, comment time is over.
