West Seattle Wednesday: What’s up today/tonight

The blackberries always win

(From “old desolate” via the WSB Flickr group – captioned, “The blackberries always win”)
Happy Wednesday! Lots on the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar today – here’s a sampling:

NEW YEAR, NEW BABY? The drop-in support group for parents of babies up to 1 year old, Early Days, meets Wednesdays, noon-2 pm, at Nurturing Expressions (WSB sponsor) in The Junction. Details in our calendar listing. Just show up! (4746 44th SW, #201)

ENTREPRENEUR/CO-WORKING MEETUP: Noon-1:15 pm, drop by new WSB sponsor West Seattle Office Junction to meet and talk with other local entrepreneurs, telecommuters, etc. – get feedback and inspiration. (5230-B California SW)

SOUTHWEST DISTRICT COUNCIL’S NEW MEETING SPOT: The council that includes reps from groups around what the city calls the Southwest District – mostly western West Seattle – has changed meeting locations, starting tonight. 6:30 pm, Senior Center of West Seattle, the big upstairs meeting room. Topics include the possibility that city leaders might seek to re-map districts to correspond with the new City Council districts – reducing 13 districts citywide to 7 – here’s an overlay map of how the current city districts correspond to the new council districts:

Tonight’s full SWDC agenda is here. The council usually meets on the 1st Wednesday, but that of course was New Year’s Day. (California/Oregon)

34TH DISTRICT DEMOCRATS: As previewed here last weekend, a big agenda here too – awards, legislative update, health-care-reform progress report. See the agenda on the 34th Dems’ site here. Meeting starts at 7 pm, The Hall at Fauntleroy, south side of the historic schoolhouse. (9131 California SW)

PUNK ROCK AEROBICS: 7 pm at Hiawatha Community Center, a new series starts, for ages 11 and up. More in our calendar listing. (2700 California SW)

FOOTNOTE: Did you know the location of Elm Place SW, in today’s featured photo, without looking it up? We didn’t! So here’s the map.

    Had to look “Elm Pl SW”, as I didn’t recognize it as a West Seattle street name.


    And I’m actually aware of the general location, anyway, of some of WS’s more obscure little streets, such as the neighboring streets of SW Canada Dr, and SW Bruce St.

      If you didn’t scroll all the way to the end, that’s why I put the side note with the map link there :) kind of a test.

    When I was delivering prescriptions for Olsen’s Pharmacy in the mid 80’s, I had to find some obscure addresses in WS, but maybe none more so than one house on 66th Ave SW…

    What a great series WSB could have called “interesting intersections in West Seattle”!

    I really wanted to join the aerobics class but after 30 minutes of searching, I can’t figure out how to register. Anyway someone could post details for non FB users to sign up? Or a non FB contact for the program?

      Just show up! Or go to the community center ahead of time. You might be able to find it in the Parks system that’s linked from the sidebar of the Hiawatha Community Center site but not all features are linked there, unfortunately.

    Thanks! I’ll head down there. It’s a great concept and sounds like fun!

Sorry, comment time is over.
