West Seattle Friday: What’s up this afternoon and evening

Look! A sunbreak! That’s what we found at Seacrest, checking out this morning’s extra-high tide (the next two mornings bring the highest tides of the year!). And while the calendar doesn’t really start revving up until next week, we have items of note for this afternoon/evening:

HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL: School’s not back in session until Monday but our area’s two biggest high schools hit the court tonight – playing each other. A full afternoon/evening of basketball with West Seattle High School visiting Chief Sealth International High School begins with girls’ junior varsity at 3:15 pm, continuing with boys’ JV at 4:45 pm, girls’ varsity at 6:15 pm, and boys’ varsity at 8. (2600 SW Thistle)

‘WORDS, WRITERS, WEST SEATTLE’: The series of monthly appearances by West Seattle authors continues 4-6 pm today at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village with Robert Spector, author of “The Mom and Pop Store.” Here’s our most-recent preview; here’s the home page for the series on the Southwest Seattle Historical Society website. (2800 SW Barton)

FRIDAY NIGHT SKATING: Checked out Alki Community Center‘s weekly roller-skating session? 6:45-8:45 pm, per Seattle Parks‘ quarterly brochure. (5817 SW Stevens)

LIVE MUSIC: Find it tonight at The Cask in The Admiral District, with Jamie Tippett and Adam Ludwig, 8 pm … And at Skylark Café and Club in North Delridge (3803 Delridge Way SW), it’s Seacastle and Something in The Trees, 9 pm.

And outside West Seattle, but featuring local businesses:

REMODELING EXPO: If you’re going to this big event today (noon-8 pm) through Sunday at the Convention Center downtown, look for West Seattle firms including (updated) three WSB sponsors – Ventana Construction (booth 313), Potter Construction (booth 518), and NCompass Construction (booth 811).

    Just a sunbreak? Heck, there’s BLUE SKY and SUNSHINE in Seaview!

      There is here too, now, but even when I published this, it was starting to go in the other direction – this is more in line with the forecast so, yay!

    Did anyone else notice a REALLY strong burning rubber smell near the west end of the bridge today? Was so strong and sudden when I crossed into WS at 10am that I thought it was my car and checked under the hood when I got to the ActivSpace….but then from when I got on the bridge till about the mid point when I was leaving at 7pm, I smelled it again! Most definitely wasn’t my car!

      Chivahn – I don’t know if anyone will refer back to this story now that it’s getting late, but you could ask in the forum: http://westseattleblog.com/forum – We are asked about something like that now and then but haven’t heard anything for a few weeks. – Tracy

Sorry, comment time is over.
