Thanks to Stephen for sharing the hawk photo, taken southwest of The Junction, where, he says, Steller’s Jays sounded the alarm. Speaking of announcements – from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar, highlights for tonight:
NEW RESTAURANT OPENS: It’s the official opening night for Pecado Bueno, the new taqueria-with-a-bar restaurant, first reported here in June. While their regular hours include lunch, they’ll officially swing the doors open at 5 tonight. (4523 California SW)
LUNA PARK BLOCK PARTY: As first reported here last month, it’s the third annual edition of the Luna Park business district’s big event, 6-8 pm – here’s our original preview.
DUWAMISH RIVER KAYAK TOUR: Community kayak tours of the Duwamish River are back this summer, with the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition and Alki Kayak Tours, and tonight’s tour leaves from South Park’s Duwamish Waterway Park at 6 pm – details here. (7900 10th Ave. S.)
MASSY FERGUSON AT HIAWATHA: This year’s fourth free show in the Summer Concerts at Hiawatha series gets going on the east lawn at Hiawatha Community Center at 6:30 pm (if the weather doesn’t clear, the gym is there as a backup), and this time around, you’ll hear the music of Massy Ferguson.
‘TAPPED’: Water = good. Using billions of plastic water bottles to drink it = not good. “Tapped” explains why, and Seattle Public Utilities reminds us you can see it free tonight, 6:30 pm, at the Admiral Theater. (2343 California SW)
GENESEE-SCHMITZ NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL: As previewed here, two major items are on the agenda for this meeting at 7 pm – the city process now under way to determine what to do with no-longer-needed substation sites in West Seattle and environs, including 50th/Dakota, and the ongoing issue of small-lot development. The meeting’s at West Side Presbyterian Church. (3601 California SW)
