West Seattle Thursday: Summer Fest Eve, Art Walk, Design Review, extended Water Taxi….

Thanks to Trileigh Tucker for that photo of a black-capped chickadee having a blast in the birdbath. Remember to keep your birdbath(s) full – cloudy today but still dry and they evaporate fast!

WATER TAXI EXTENDED SERVICE: Just as we got ready to publish this, King County issued a reminder that the West Seattle Water Taxi will run late tonight to serve the soccer crowds.

WEST SEATTLE SUMMER FEST EVE! Though the festival doesn’t officially start until tomorrow, the fun starts when the streets close tonight, including: Bret Wiggins‘ Elvis stylings outside La Romanza Bistro (WSB sponsor); The Bubbleman outside Elliott Bay Brewery; Yada Yada Blues Band outside West 5; plus music at Click! Design That Fits (WSB sponsor), too – 44th and Morgan featuring Alex, Maya and Conor, 6-8 pm.

SUMMER FEST STREET/BUS CHANGES START TONIGHT: See the details in the traffic/transit tracker we published this morning.

WEST SEATTLE ART WALK: Happening tonight too, not only in The Junction, but in other venues around the peninsula! Check out the summer-quarter poster:
