  3. Thanks, JustMe and MJ – we do our best to browse websites (we have one staff member whose entire job is calendar entries, and trying to look proactively at online calendars to find MORE events, as time allows) but we really rely on getting the word directly from event organizers, so anybody else with events they’re interested in sharing with the community, PLEASE e-mail us (editor@westseattleblog.com) … TR
