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)
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).
