Another blustery day – here are highlights from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar, including some of what’s making news today:

TOT TREK AT CAMP LONG: Frogs and salamanders are the focus of this 10:30 am event at Camp Long Environmental Learning Center for 2- and 3-year-olds accompanied by adults. Call ASAP to see if there’s room! Details in our calendar listing. (5200 35th SW)

FAST-FOOD BOYCOTT CALL: Supporters of the $15 minimum-wage campaign are calling for three fast-food chains to be boycotted in Seattle today and say they will have demonstrations outside. The only one with outlets in West Seattle is McDonald’s.

FILM SCREENING: 11 am at Brockey Center Room A on the campus of South Seattle Community College (WSB sponsor), filmmaker Frank Abe shows his film “Conscience and the Constitution” and speaks about the Japanese American Day of Remembrance. More info in our calendar listing. (6000 16th SW)

MORGAN JUNCTION MURDER TRIAL: As we finish writing this highlight list, we are back at the King County Courthouse for the second day of presentations to the jury in the trial of Lovett Chambers for the 2012 shooting death of Travis Hood – here’s our detailed report, published late last night, about the first day, which included both sides’ opening statements. Proceedings were scheduled to start at 9, but a witness is running late.

PIANO BAR/CAFE SOCIAL FOR 50+ LGBT: 6-8 pm, the Senior Center of West Seattle hosts a piano bar/café social for LGBT 50+. Free hors d’oeuvres, no-host beer/wine, “Broadway Baby” singalong. (California/Oregon)

DESIGN REVIEW FOR 2626 ALKI AVE. SW: First time in a while that the Southwest Design Review Board has had only one project on its schedule, and it’s also the first mixed-use Alki project in a long time: 2626 Alki SW, which would replace three commercial buildings at Alki and 59th. It’s proposed for 14 residential units, 5 live-work, 3,250 sf of retail, and 28 parking spaces; the first public presentation about the plan was at last June’s Alki Community Council meeting. The Design Review packet has yet to be linked from the page where it’s supposed to be publicly available with at least a week to go; one did turn up elsewhere on the DPD site (not directly linkable) in December, but we’re checking to see if that’s still the newest one. The meeting’s at 6:30 pm, Senior Center of West Seattle. (California/Oregon) **10:34 AM UPDATE – We pinged DPD and they have now uploaded the packet – see it here.**

(added) ALKI COMMUNITY COUNCIL: 7 pm at Alki UCC – agenda just announced:

1) Alki Cottage Project 3015 60th Ave SW Permit: #3016265 – Jerome Diepenbrock / Marc Rudd

    according to an on-air story on KIRO, there will be a minimum wage demo in WS this afternoon or evening; they didn’t mention which location and the on-line version doesn’t include details.

      Metro, it’s the same thing mentioned in this roundup. Working Washington has promoted demonstrations around the area and says they will have a presence at McDonald’s in this area, particularly the one by PCC. We will have a photographer checking it out in the next few hours to see if there is indeed a demonstration.
