Fishing through our inbox and the frequently updated WSB West Seattle Event Calendar (thanks as always to everyone who continues to share events/meetings/etc. so we can help get the word out!), here are 8 notes and highlights for today/tonight:
CO-WORKING IN WEST SEATTLE: While West Seattle Office Junction continues working toward its permanent co-working site, they’re continuing to host gatherings, and everybody interested in co-working is invited, whether you’ve been involved with the organization before or not. Today, noon-1 pm at Mind Unwind (2206 California SW), you’re invited to a discussion about planning member workshops and other events – learning new business skills, networking, etc.
CHAT WITH THE ROLLERGIRLS: With White Center roots and some West Seattle players, the Rat City Rollergirls are local heroines. The Seattle Times (WSB partner) is hosting a live chat with two Rollergirls at noon today – here’s the link. (If you missed their recent WC bouts – check out our coverage on White Center Now.)
