It’s that quiet time between major winter holidays, but we’ve still found a few calendar highlights for today/tonight:
BLOOD DRIVE: Supplies run low during the holidays, so if you can donate blood, Puget Sound Blood Center hopes you will stop by the Bloodmobile at 42nd/Alaska 9 am-3 pm today (but not during the 11:30 am-12:30 pm break).
BONUS FAMILY SWIM: City-operated Southwest Pool has added extra public swims for the holidays, and one of them is today – 10:30 am-noon, an added “family swim” session. (2801 SW Thistle)
NOT TOO LATE FOR POST-CHRISTMAS CHRISTMAS-LIGHTS VIEWING: Can’t guarantee everyone is still turning theirs on, but the big displays do go on until 2014 arrives – including the Menashe family lights (5605 Beach Drive SW) and the music-synched West Seattle Lights – bring food donations! and check the schedule here (39th/Charlestown). P.S. Here’s our West Seattle-wide map.
AUSSIE ROOTS MUSIC … with Blake Noble, solo performance at Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor), 8:30 tonight. (6451 California SW)
LATE-NIGHT MUSIC: Lavender Lucy (with special guests) and Cynthia Alexander, 11 pm at Skylark Café and Club. (3803 Delridge Way SW)
