From the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

RAMP-CLOSURE REMINDER: Until 3 pm Monday, the ramp from northbound I-5 to the West Seattle Bridge is closed for more expansion-joint work. (We’ll publish an update if it reopens early.)

DUWAMISH LONGHOUSE NATIVE MARKET/JUMBLE DAYS: Happening at the Duwamish Tribe‘s longhouse, the second of two days for this arts/crafts/rummage/more sale. 10 am-4 pm . (4705 W. Marginal Way SW)

BENEFIT CAR WASH: As previewed here on Friday, the WSHS girls’ soccer team is washing cars as a fundraiser at West Seattle Autoworks (WSB sponsor), 10 am-3 pm. (35th/Webster)

HONEY HARVEST: From Krista Conner at Seattle Bee Works, word of a “honey harvest” event today at West Seattle Produce: “Meet and chat with local West Seattle beekeepers! Watch and learn how honey is extracted from the comb. Sample local honey!” 10 am-2 pm. (4722 Fauntleroy Way SW)

LAFAYETTE WORK PARTY: Volunteers came out in the rain on Thursday, but there’s still more to be done at the Lafayette Elementary playground, so Sean Reynolds sends word, “We will hold another work party today from 10 am to noon. Sweeping and raking wood chips, weeding around the raised beds and building (there’s lots!) and planting some new flowers will be the target.” (California/Lander)

BARNES AND NOBLE STORYTIME: Melissa describes today’s 11 am storytime at the Westwood Village bookstore: “We’re going to be reading ‘Rocket Writes a Story’ and ‘Library Mouse’ … as well as a fun craft! We’ll be making our own books for budding little writers and artists to create their own stories. It should be a lot of fun, and a nice transition for back to school!” (2800 SW Barton)

LAST WEEKEND FOR ALKI LIGHTHOUSE TOURS: Today and tomorrow, 1-4 pm (look for a preview later this morning) are your final chances this year for a free tour of the historic Alki Point Lighthouse as it continues its centennial celebration. (Look for the parking lot where Alki Avenue and Beach Drive meet)

DAUGHTERS OF THE DEAD SEA FAREWELL SHOW/BENEFIT: As previewed here on Thursday, the West Seattle band is performing one final time, and admission is by donation to help member Jen cover her medical bills for a lifelong battle with cystic fibrosis. The show at Easy Street Records in The Junction includes Hobosexual and Whiskey Radio too. (California/Alaska)

SKYLARK BENEFIT FOR LOGAN WICKER: As noted in our Friday story about Skylark Café and Club changing hands as of tomorrow, this is a big night to benefit employee Logan Wicker, seriously injured when an allegedly drunk driver hit his car in June. 8 pm, three bands on the bill: Yevtushenko, Loyal Kites, Dunning Kruger Effect. (3803 Delridge Way SW)

HAIRSTORM ‘ROCK FOR BOOBIES’ BENEFIT: And the night’s final fundraising rock ‘n’ roll round is at Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor), 9:30 pm, featuring ’80s “hair rock” tribute band Hairstorm, and featuring a silent auction, all to benefit the breast-cancer-fighting 3-Day team Boulder Patrols.
