West Seattle Sunday: From the Farmers’ Market to an Oscars party…

March 2, 2014 at 6:43 am | In West Seattle news, WS miscellaneous | 6 Comments

Thanks to John Hinkey for the photo of beautiful mountains, sea, and boat taken in last Friday’s sunshine. How will today unfold? Here’s some of what’s on the calendar!

REMINDER – NO VIADUCT CLOSURE TODAY AFTER ALL as reported here last night, the inspection is done and so there’s NO second all-day closure between the West Seattle Bridge and Battery Street Tunnel. But 99 is still closed from the BST north to Woodland Park Zoo through late morning for the Hot Chocolate 15/5K.

WEST SEATTLE SUNDAY SOCCER: 7:30 am at Delridge Playfield, join the weekly pickup games – explained on the WSSS Facebook page. (Delridge/Alaska)

TWEED RIDE TO BIKE EXPO: 10 am, join West Seattle Bike Connections on a ride to the Seattle Bike Expo. (Don’t miss the artistic-cycling champs while you’re there!) Details on the WSBC site. (Meet under the WS Bridge)

WEST SEATTLE FARMERS’ MARKET: 10 am-2 pm, with vendors including the recently debuted, West Seattle-based Sod House Bakery. (44th/Alaska)

GIRL SCOUT COOKIE SALES CONTINUE: Another local troop shares their cookie-selling photo today (send us yours!), the third day of this year’s cookie sale:

We are Daisy Girl Scout Troop #45172 out of Gatewood Elementary. We will be selling cookies at Westwood QFC 12-2 and WS Thriftway 4-6 Sunday. This is our first year selling cookies. We are taking donated cookies to some of the local nursing homes and also collecting cookie donations for Operation Cookie Drop to send to the troops. Come by, say hi, and buy some cookies to help support the Girl Scouts.

The online lookup to find all of West Seattle’s cookie-selling troops, and their times/locations, is here.

OSCARS VIEWING PARTY: The silver-screen awards are on the big screen at Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor), 4 pm red carpet, 5 pm awards. (6451 California SW)

SEATTLE PRIDE ‘LAST CHANCE’ TRYOUTS: 15-17-year-old girls and boys have one last chance this evening to try out for the Seattle Pride basketball league. See our previous story for times and other info. Tryouts are at Seattle Lutheran High School. (40th/Genesee)

‘ROOTS MUSIC VARIETY SHOW’: That’s how tonight’s lineup at Kenyon Hall, “From West Seattle to the Bering Sea,” is described. 7:30 pm. (7904 35th SW)

  2. interesting. On the KIRO 11 pm news they mentioned the viaduct being closed until 6pm today…so much for getting the right info out there. Thanks for keeping us posted, TR.

  3. Though I could rag on that particular TV station for a different inaccuracy today (cause of death in the High Point murder story – they are still citing hearsay from an indirect source shortly after the killing, instead of what the Medical Examiner reported as the actual cause a few days later), I will say it’s not entirely their fault – the advisory that was sent by WSDOT last night was not very clear … I know because I went back and forth with them three times to confirm this … the advisory said “The inspection is over and the Viaduct has reopened.” It did not say explicitly, “The Sunday closure is canceled.” So I asked that question twice before getting the actual confirmation, “yes, this means the stretch between the West Seattle Bridge and the Battery Street Tunnel will NOT close on Sunday, because the inspection work finished early.” This is the value of getting neighborhood news from a neighborhood source looking out for those nuances :) – Tracy

  5. KOMO, I believe it was, was also stating that the Viaduct was still closed, due to inspection, during their 9:00 am hour.

    .

    If not KOMO, then it would have been KING, which is my usual Weekend Morning Newscast. King broke away an hour early though at 9:00, to go to Sports Programming.

  6. So apparently none of them bothered to ask the followup question. Cars on 99 clearly visible in cameras on our Traffic page, BTW (scroll down):
