West Seattle Saturday: What’s up for today and tonight

NYEve From Alki from Craig Howard on Vimeo.

That time-lapse video is the work of Craig Howard, who recorded the Seacrest-vicinity scene as New Year’s Eve unfolded and then made way for New Year’s Day. Now, here we are already on the first weekend of the New Year, and many are watching the water again …

HIGHEST TIDE OF THE YEAR: This morning and Sunday morning, high tide hits 13.3 feet – highest of the year. No storm surge, so no trouble’s expected, but if you’re by the water, you’ll notice it’s way up there, as explained here. 7:22 am today, to be precise. (P.S. Remember that you can find a tide chart any time on the WSB Weather page.)

CHRISTMAS TREE RECYCLING: Get the tree out of the living room before it’s a fire hazard – between 10 am and 2 pm, you can drop it off at the West Seattle Rainbow Girls‘ annual tree-recycling fundraiser in the lot at the Masonic Center in The Junction, $5 suggested donation. More info here. (40th/Edmunds)

TEEN RUNNERS’ GROUP: Today is the kickoff meeting for the new group that West Seattle Runner (WSB sponsor) is hosting for teen runners, 11 am. Details here. (California/Charlestown)

VOLUNTEER WITH SWSHS: Today’s the monthly info session for prospective volunteers at the home of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, the Log House Museum at Alki, 11 am. Here’s our preview. (61st/Stevens)

FREE E-CYCLING: Have the holidays left you with old electronics to recycle? In nearby South Park, there’s a free dropoff event today, 1-4 pm – info in our calendar listing. (8201 10th Ave. S.)

WEST SEATTLE MEANINGFUL MOVIES: As previewed here last week, “Dirt: The Movie” is the first West Seattle Meaningful Movies presentation of 2014. 6:30 pm, dessert and mingling; 7 pm (free!) movie, Neighborhood House’s High Point Center. (6400 Sylvan Way)

VERY OZZY NEW YEAR: 9:30 pm at Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor), it’s an Ozzy Osbourne tribute! (6451 California SW)

FIRST ‘ROCKY’ OF 2014: The monthly first-Saturday midnight screening of “Rocky Horror Picture Show” is tonight at Admiral Theater. Not too late to toast the New Year! (2343 California SW)
