Happy Saturday! Here are highlights from the list of what’s up today, via the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:
ROAD-WORK ALERTS: Two reminders for the weekend – ramps from northbound I-5 to the West Seattle Bridge and Beacon Hill are closed until Monday morning, and pavement repair is scheduled today and tomorrow on East Marginal Way near Hanford.
SALES! 9 am-5 pm today (and again tomorrow), Pacific Plumbing Supply in Highland Park continues its annual tent sale, which it’s been advertising here on the WSB Event Calendar page to get the word out. Discounted fixtures include bathtubs, jetted tubs, kitchen sinks, toilets, more. (7115 W. Marginal Way SW) … Also, garage/yard-sale season isn’t quite over yet – there are a few listings in the Sales/Freebies section of the WSB Forums.
COMMUNITY CLEANUPS: Reminder that there are two today – Junction Plaza Park with the Junction Neighborhood Organization just started at 9 am, Walking on Logs (alongside the Fauntleroy end of the bridge) also a 9 am start – here’s our Friday reminder about both; every single participant (and all ages are welcome) makes a difference, including late arrivals!
