LIVE MUSIC AT SALTY’S: 5-8 pm, the Dave Holo Trio gets jazzy at Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor), and you know it’s going to be a gorgeous night by the water. No cover/minimum; happy-hour specials until 6 pm. (1936 Harbor SW)

WARRIOR’S CALL: HEALING THROUGH SERVICE: 7 pm at the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center, hear from the veterans of VeteransRespond, who “felt called to support environmental rights and Native Lands”:
