This week’s sunshine gave Gatewood photographer/pilot Long B. Nguyen a chance for more West Seattle aerial imagery – and here’s one photo he shared with WSB: Duwamish Head and beyond. Great stage-setter for our preview of some of what’s happening on our beautiful peninsula today and tonight:

TIBBETTS SALE: The almost-spring edition of the twice-annual rummage sale at Tibbetts United Methodist Church (WSB sponsor) starts today, 9 am-4 pm – details in our calendar listing. (41st/Andover)

WEST SIDE PRESBYTERIAN SALE: It’s also the start of the “gigantic garage sale” (as declared via banner!) at West Side Presbyterian Church, also starting today, 9 am-5 pm – details in our calendar listing. (3601 California SW)

WEST SEATTLE GEAR SWAP DROPOFF: If you are selling gear in this weekend’s West Seattle Gear Swap, drop it off 10 am-7 pm at Mountain to Sound Outfitters. (3602 SW Alaska)

PI DAY PARTY AT THE LIBRARY: As previewed here earlier this week, right after school, at 3:14 pm, a Pi Day party kicks off at West Seattle (Admiral) Library – including, of course, pie. (2306 42nd SW)

LOCAL ACTOR’S MOVIE OPENS: West Seattle actor Lisa Coronado e-mailed to let us know she’s in the movie “Different Drummers,” and it’s opening at AMC Southcenter today – here’s the trailer:

The movie is described as being set “on the north side of Spokane in the 1960s, and focuses on the unlikely friendship between two fourth-graders: a hyperactive Lyle and his best friend David, who is in a wheelchair with Muscular Dystrophy. When David accurately predicts the death of their fourth-grade teacher, and says God told him, Lyle decides to test the existence of God by trying to get David to run again.” Read more about it at differentdrummersmovie.com; check showtimes here.

  2. Will add it to the text and headline. Wasn’t in the calendar because we didn’t get it a week in advance (unfortunately that’s the best we can do, the more lead time the better, given our resources) … thanks for the reminder. – TR

  3. I watch a lot of trailers… and that was one of the better ones. So intriguing.
