      MONDAY ARTISTS wants you. We are an established group of watercolorists who meet Monday mornings from 9:30 to noon at the Island View Apts across the street from West Seattle H.S. There is a minimal fee of $5 for the use of the room. First-timers are free. We start with a critique and paint the rest of the time. Beginners and experienced artists are welcome. If you are a beginner we can get you started. We usually have an annual show in the Fall. Some of us started knowing absolutely nothing and have ended up showing and selling our work on a regular basis. For more info call 206-932-1973 or e-mail me at rjwight@comcast .net

      Making spirits bright this holiday season is none other than Judy Garland, reveling in all things old Hollywood glam!

      “My goodness, I’m back home again. I’ve missed you all so much!”

      With spiked grog in hand, Judy welcomes her baggage-ridden celebrity stars – Bing Crosby, Liberace, Ethel Merman, Joan Crawford, Lillian Hellman, VP Richard Nixon, Punch, and a special dark guest – to her 1959 TV Christmas Special. Stylized zany camp is the wrappings on this gift of clever satire, endearing fun and wicked toe-tapping music!

      Performances: Opening Night Thursday December 4th; regular performances Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm; additional performance Tuesday December 23rd.

      Tickets available online here.

We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

      Judy’s Scary Little Christmas – December 4–December 28, 2014

      Book by David Church and Jim Webber
      Music and Lyrics by Joe Patrick Ward

      Making spirits bright this holiday season is none other than Judy Garland, reveling in all things old Hollywood glam!

      “My goodness, I’m back home again. I’ve missed you all so much!”

      With spiked grog in hand, Judy welcomes her baggage-ridden celebrity stars – Bing Crosby, Liberace, Ethel Merman, Joan Crawford, Lillian Hellman, VP Richard Nixon, Punch, and a special dark guest – to her 1959 TV Christmas Special. Stylized zany camp is the wrappings on this gift of clever satire, endearing fun and wicked toe-tapping music!

      Performances: Opening Night Thursday December 4th; regular performances Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm; additional performance Tuesday December 23rd.

      Tickets available online here.

More info about the tradition of “breaking up Christmas” in this article out of Galax, VA.

      Judy’s Scary Little Christmas – December 4–December 28, 2014

      Book by David Church and Jim Webber
      Music and Lyrics by Joe Patrick Ward

      Making spirits bright this holiday season is none other than Judy Garland, reveling in all things old Hollywood glam!

      “My goodness, I’m back home again. I’ve missed you all so much!”

      With spiked grog in hand, Judy welcomes her baggage-ridden celebrity stars – Bing Crosby, Liberace, Ethel Merman, Joan Crawford, Lillian Hellman, VP Richard Nixon, Punch, and a special dark guest – to her 1959 TV Christmas Special. Stylized zany camp is the wrappings on this gift of clever satire, endearing fun and wicked toe-tapping music!

      Performances: Opening Night Thursday December 4th; regular performances Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm; additional performance Tuesday December 23rd.

      Tickets available online here.

We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

      From Phil Tavel, host of Talarico’s Wednesday Night Trivia events:

      It’s every Wednesday night at 8:30 pm (going on five years now). It goes until a little after 10 pm. It’s $2 per person, and we have nomaximum or minimum team size. We usually get between 75 and 115 people. I give out cash prizes to the top 3 teams and bottles of champagne for the bottom three teams. Every season I have a special seasonal challenge that culminates in a $3 per person championship night. The Winter Challenge for 2013 starts next week.

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.
