The prospect of tolls on the I-90 bridge have been a hot topic since we mentioned this week’s series of open houses – none in West Seattle, but maybe one is convenient to your workplace; they start tonight. That’s part of the list of highlights from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

CO-WORKING MEETUP: Every Tuesday, noon-1 pm, at Uptown Espresso in The Junction until West Seattle Office Junction has a permanent location, they host a co-working meetup “to connect small business owners with each other.”

I-90 TOLLS? FIRST ROUND OF COMMENTING: None are in West Seattle, but they’re of high interest, and WSDOT is advertising them on WSB – three WSDOT open houses this week as they embark on the “environmental assessment” of potential I-90 bridge tolling – in this context, “environmental” includes a wide range of effects, not just “ecological.” Tonight’s open house is 4-7 pm on Mercer Island; details (and a map) here.

BEER TASTING: Elliott Bay Brewing in The Junction starts its “Ode to Darkness” tasting at 3 pm, with the brewer on hand 5-6 pm for questions. Details in our calendar listing.

DREAM DINNERS OPEN HOUSE: Located in The Junction, West Seattle’s Dream Dinners (WSB sponsor) is the answer to the question “what’s for dinner?” and you can check it out at 5:30 pm – RSVP requested; details in our calendar listing.

LIFE-SAVING DISCUSSION: ***6 pm*** at High Point Library (35th/Raymond), teen librarian Ken Gollersrud and the Chief Sealth International High School PTSA present information about teen depression and suicide prevention – information that could save someone’s life. Details here.

And lots more – check the calendar, for today/tonight and way beyond!

  3. That’s both, a beautiful shot, and a beautiful little Bewick’s…and a great reminder that if we can, we should put a little out for these guys who provide us our connection with Nature through the winter months; suet, seed, even filling the hummingbird feeders for our winterers. It all helps.
