That’s a trailer for “The Devil Wears Prada,” with Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway, on the big screen tonight for the second Saturday of this year’s West Seattle Outdoor Movies (with sponsors including WSB). That’s the highlight atop our list for today/tonight:
WEST SEATTLE OUTDOOR MOVIES: Tonight’s event includes a silent benefit auction of donated women’s shoes – bring yours to Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (4410 California SW, next to the movie courtyard; WSB sponsor) any time today before the movie, new or gently used. The movie’s at dusk, which was around 9:30 pm last week and will be a few minutes earlier this week, but the gates are open in the early evening for staking out your spot with chair/blanket. Go get takeout dinner from a nearby Junction restaurant and make a picnic out of it! Movie’s free; bring $ for charity-benefiting concessions.
OPEN HOUSE AT SSCC: The Culinary, Pastry, Baking programs at South Seattle Community College (WSB sponsor) have an open house 9:30-11 am – find out about the educational options! Details in our calendar listing. (6000 16th SW)
NORTHWEST FIGHT AND FITNESS COMMUNITY OPEN HOUSE: It’s not just about NWFF, it’s about half a dozen-plus other community businesses too. Stop by 10 am-3 pm – see our preview from Friday. (5050 Delridge Way SW)

SEAFAIR TORCHLIGHT PARADE, AND ENTRIES OF NOTE: Going downtown for the big parade? Stake out a spot early! West Seattleites you’ll see, according to the parade lineup distributed to the news media by Seafair, include King County Executive Dow Constantine and of course the West Seattle Hi-Yu Festival Float. Right before the parade, we’ll find out if either West Seattle participant in the Seafair Scholarship Program for Women is crowned Miss Seafair or a princess – they are Hi-Yu’s Kayli Schulz and Admiral Neighborhood Association-sponsored Victoria Ferrulli. Parade-participating bands that were here last night for the pre-parade Band Jam include the Pacific Northwest Drumline, Sumner High School, Calgary Round-Up, and of course the Seattle All-City Band. (Though they weren’t here last night, you can also root for the Kennedy Catholic High School Band from nearby Burien.) Parade starts at the Seattle Center end of 4th Avenue at 7:30 pm and heads south to the International District.
LIVE AT THE FEEDBACK: Delaney Davidson from New Zealand at Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor), 9:30 pm. (6451 California SW)
