West Seattle Thursday: 2 development meetings; Shop Late tonight…

That’s the crane at 5020 California SW, where The Blake is under construction; so far, it’s the only one of West Seattle’s three current construction cranes bearing Christmas lights. Speaking of development, it’s the subject of two meetings that are among highlights for today/tonight from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar and Holiday Guide:

PRESCHOOL STORY TIME: 11 am at Southwest Library. (35th/Henderson)

FREE ‘ON STAGE’ DISCUSSION @ ARTSWEST: As “Little Women: The Musical” continues at ArtsWest (WSB sponsor), tonight it’s preceded by a “Stories of the Civil War” discussion event you can attend for free, 6-6:45 pm, even if you’re not staying for the 7:30 pm performance. Details here. (4711 California SW)

SHOP LATE THURSDAY – WEST SEATTLE CYCLERY SALE: Every Thursday until Christmas, many of The Junction’s independent local businesses are staying open until 9 pm for your gift-shopping convenience.

Doors open 6:30 pm, movie at 7. (2343 California SW)

COMMUNITY MEETING ABOUT MORGAN JUNCTION DEVELOPMENT: 7 pm at The Kenney (WSB sponsor), community members including Morgan Community Association leaders have organized an unofficial meeting to talk about the 6917 California SW development (30 apartments, no parking spaces) and the development process in general, with city Department of Planning and Development managers on hand.

    According to their Facebook page, Howard Garrett and Susan Berta, co-directors of Orca Network, will be attending tonight’s screening of “Lolita: Slave to Entertainment,” and will participate in the Q&A after. Great opportunity to talk with the leaders of the effort to free Tokitae!

    We will be at the Admiral for Tokitae (Lolita) too. Dress code should be, “wear something black & white!”

    Just saw the construction crew on the ground stringing a christmas light tree at the site of the former “Hole” by Trader Joes. I presume this will top their crane. Happy Holidays everyone!

      Thanks, Dancing Kat – will take a look as night falls :)

Sorry, comment time is over.
