Highlights for today/tonight from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

(added) SPRING TASTING EVENT: West Seattle Thriftway (Fauntleroy/California; WSB sponsor) is inviting shoppers to their spring tasting event 4-7 pm. Among the vendors who are scheduled to demonstrate is Maria Esztergalyos, a West Seattle mom who has launched a line of vegan, soy-free, wheat-free, gluten-free, nut-free, refined-sugar-free sauces and spice rubs called Palmera Naturals (and is crowdfunding via Kickstarter in hopes of expanding).
WEST SEATTLE ART WALK! It’s the April edition – your chance to explore dozens of venues around the peninsula that will be showing art, most with the artist(s) on hand, 6-9 pm. Preview venues and artists on the official website. Here are a few notes:

SHANTI’S SILENT AUCTION DURING ART WALK: During Art Walk tonight, Shanti Salon and Spa (WSB sponsor) will host a special silent auction that’s also an Earth Month event – student art from K-5 STEM at Boren, 6 pm to 8 pm to celebrate Earth Month and raise funds for Puget Soundkeeper Alliance.

  1. Am I allowed to be a little snarky here? “vegan, soy-free, wheat-free, gluten-free, nut-free, refined-sugar-free sauces and spice rubs.” These are probably delicious and healthful, but all that free-dom is soooo Seattle/Portlandia. Now, folks, don’t get all Seattle on me and get your knickers in a bunch. I’m just teasing a little.

  2. Congrats, Maria! If we can help spread the word at all, please let us know.

    Sonoma, have you seen the Portlandia episode w/the Food Allergy Pride parade? It was hilarious! It is always okay to poke a bit of fun, no worries – we can take it! (Just keep the gluten, soy, etc. away! :)

  3. Ben- thank you very much I would love your help in spreading the word! I thought that Portlandia episode was funny and so timely! There are so many people struggling with food sensitivities (including myself) and that’s why I created the product line! Sonoma- feel free to stop by one of my demos at West Seattle Thriftway sometime and taste the products!
