5 notes for the rest of your West Seattle (and beyond) Tuesday

Since we might not see the sun before today is over, we’re sharing the Monday night photo sent by Chris Frankovich (thank you!). Even when visible, of course, the sunsets are so early this time of year – but have heart, the winter solstice is on Saturday. (Speaking of which, we have added solstice events to the WSB Holiday Guide.) A few things ahead today, before we get too much further:

COTTAGE GROVE COMMONS OPENING CEREMONY & TOURS: The 66-apartment DESC “supportive housing” facility Cottage Grove Commons starts move-ins tomorrow. Today, it’s hosting a 2:30 pm opening celebration and 4:30-7 pm neighborhood open house/tours; details here; our coverage of this past Sunday’s volunteer “Apartment Adoption Day” is here. (5444 Delridge Way SW)

VOLUNTEER NIGHT AT WESTSIDE BABY: 6-9 pm, lend a hand! Details here.

COMMUNITY CONCERT: At 7 pm, small woodwind and brass ensembles, members and friends of the West Seattle Community Orchestras, will be performing Christmas favorites, Scott Joplin and a recently composed “Woodwind Sextet no. 1″ by Mark Hedien at the Bridge Park Retirement Living Center. The public is invited. The music will include a unique flute, bells, and piano combination, as well as a trombone quartet, woodwind sextet, clarinet quartet, and brass quintet. (3204 SW Morgan)

FINAL ‘TRIVIA THAT ROCKS’: Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor) is changing its Tuesday programming after tonight’s final edition of “Trivia That Rocks,” which starts at 8 pm. No worries, trivia fans, proprietor Jeff Gilbert says it’ll be back with some changes in February (more later on what’s ahead for Tuesdays). So don’t miss this edition. (6451 California SW)

One more note: Not in West Seattle, but we’re told more than a few West Seattle teens are involved:

‘ANYTHING GOES’! Forwarded by West Seattleite and Center School parent Steve, who says the WS kids in the production would particularly love to see audience members cross the bridge to come support their production:

The Center School – a Seattle Public High School located at the Seattle Center – is hosting their annual play right now at the Center Theater, which is located on the first floor of the Seattle Center Armory (aka The Center House). This year they are doing something completely different and daring for a High School…a musical! Come see their totally inspired interpretation of a timeless classic “Anything Goes”. No fixed ticket price; a suggested donation of $10 is all they ask. Their first show was last night (Monday) but they have two shows left, both starting at 7:30pm. You’ll thoroughly enjoy a lighthearted yet demanding production showcased in a wonderful and intimate venue.”

  1. As a dedicated solstice observer, I must quibble over the date of the solstice event. According to the United States Naval Observatory, the solstice is on December 21st at 17:11 Universal Time. Subtracting 8 hours for Pacific Standard Time puts it at 11:11 PM on December 20th in our time zone.

    I’d hate for anyone to want to make note of the exact minute of the winter solstice, only to find it had occurred late the night before.

  2. And Pacific Time is eight hours earlier than UTC. So when it is 5:11 pm UTC, it is 9:11 am our time.
