Dec 17 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Dec 16-17, Alizah Olivas Trunk Show. Meet this local jewelry artist in person and select from fine silver and semi-precious stone necklaces and earrings.

Local jewelry artisan Alizah Olivas will be at CAPERS Dec 16, 10 am-6 pm and Dec 17, 9:30am-5pm, selling her beautiful silver and gemstone pieces – perfect for a special lady on your holiday list!

“Alizah’s pieces speak to so many of our customers,” said CAPERS owner Lisa Myers. “In fact, one of our clients snapped a photo of a beautiful silver necklace she wanted and sent her husband back to buy it for Christmas!”

A West Seattleite born and reared in White Center, Olivas began creating jewelry about 10 years ago. With support from her husband, family and friends, she has been learning and crafting jewelry ever since, attracting many collectors in the area.

“Whether it's a new gemstone I’ve found, a new shape I want to create, or a combination of the two, making each new piece is simply fun. If I’m smiling when I’m done with a piece, I’m hoping you’ll be smiling while wearing it,” said the proud lab owner of George and Gracie, who keep her company while she works.

Silver has always been Olivas’ favorite metal to wear and work with.

“The bright reflectiveness makes me happy and adding semi-precious stones only makes it better. Hopefully, my jewelry brings a brightness to your day,” shared Olivas.

Twelfth Night Productions’ (Sunday) ‘It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Show’ @ Kenyon Hall
Dec 17 @ 3:00 pm

Twelfth Night Productions (TNP) is excited to announce the return of “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Show”, playing this December at Kenyon Hall. Based the classic 1946 Frank Capra film, playwright Joe Landry’s take on “It’s a Wonderful Life,” comes to life as a live 1940s radio broadcast as the ensemble of characters bring the town of Bedford Falls to the stage. You will feel the magic as we return to the fateful Christmas Eve when George Bailey contemplates ending his life before he realizes the difference he makes in the lives of others. “No man is a failure who has friends.”

“If you close your eyes during this production you won’t miss a beat because all of the components – the sound effects, the organ, the commercials, and the Mistletones – work together successfully to recreate the live radio experience of the 1940’s and 50’s.” Drama in the Hood.

This live radio show will be performed at historic Kenyon Hall, one of West Seattle’s favorite venues, December 8, 9, 15 and 16 at 7:30 pm,

Homage to Richard Hugo @ Mac's Triangle Pub
Dec 21 @ 8:00 pm – Dec 22 @ 12:00 am

Few writers have influenced Northwest literature as profoundly as poet Richard Hugo, who brought the region to life in his poetry and prose, including the White Center area where he was born and raised as well as rural Montana where he moved to become head of the University of Montana’s creative writing program. Other than Seattle’s Richard Hugo House, there hasn’t been much local celebration of his work, until now.

The Writer’s Workshop will celebrate his career with a “Homage to Richard Hugo Night” on Thursday, Dec. 21 at 8 p.m. at Mac’s Triangle Pub (9454 Delridge Way SW), where Hugo used to hang out. In addition to writing poetry and teaching, Hugo spent a lot of time in bars. The Triangle was one of them.

The reading will include an unveiling of a framed Richard Hugo photo to be placed on the wall of the tavern, followed by readings at 8 p.m. by Nicholas O’Connell, founder of www.thewritersworkshop.net, from On Sacred Ground: The Spirit of Place in Pacific Northwest Literature; White Center resident Jeff Smoot reading from his essay, “Finding Richard Hugo in White Center,” forthcoming from the online literary magazine www.thewritersworkshopreview.net; and other poems/ stories about White Center and/or Richard Hugo. After 9 p.m., the event will continue in an open-mic format where people can read their poems/ stories (hopefully on Hugo-esque themes) on into the night.

“I’d like to gather some people together to share Richard Hugo’s story, talk about his White Center roots, and read from some literary works about Hugo and his poems,” says Smoot. “Then open up the mic to anyone who wants to share a Hugo story, read a Hugo poem, or read any White Center-themed writing. I’m hoping this might become an annual event that preserves Hugo’s White Center legacy in some way.”

Hugo and other poets of the Northwest School sought to discover a place that resonated with them and allowed them to discover their own voice. Hugo referred to such a place as a “triggering subject,” a locale that fired a writer’s imagination.

“Hugo discovered his triggering subject in White Center,” says O’Connell. “Writing about it resulted in some of his first published poems and some of his best writing.”

If you’d like to read at the event, please contact Nicholas O’Connell (nick@thewritersworkshop.net). The Writer’s Workshop is an online and on-campus The Writer’s Workshop is an online and on-campus Seattle writing workshop, specializing in fiction, nonfiction and travel writing classes.

The Dave Holo Trio performs @ Salty’s on Alki
Dec 22 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor) presents live New Orleans jazz featuring Dave Holo Trio.
Come listen to Dave Holo and his talented musical mates! Here’s what Dave has to say about his own musical journey, “Stumbling onto the local traditional jazz scene a few years after moving to Seattle was huge for me. I’ve been blessed in many ways. Regardless, it would be hard for me to overstate the impact of jazz on my life. I’ve met most of my friends through jazz; I’ve traveled; I’ve played and recorded with some amazing musicians. I really love those nights when I have my best stuff, the band has it all working, and we make a real connection with an audience … wow! It’s pretty heady stuff!”

Live music and a Waterfront View of the City. Enjoy the famous Salty’s food and fare, but there is no food or drink minimum.

Come listen to Dave Holo and his talented musical mates! Here’s what Dave has to say about his own musical journey, “Stumbling onto the local traditional jazz scene a few years after moving to Seattle was huge for me. I’ve been blessed in many ways. Regardless, it would be hard for me to overstate the impact of jazz on my life. I’ve met most of my friends through jazz; I’ve traveled; I’ve played and recorded with some amazing musicians. I really love those nights when I have my best stuff, the band has it all working, and we make a real connection with an audience … wow! It’s pretty heady stuff!”

Live music and a Waterfront View of the City. Enjoy the famous Salty’s food and fare, but there is no food or drink minimum.

Walking is a great way to enjoy New Year’s Eve and Day with family, friends and other kindred spirits. We’ll have 5 and 10 kilometer walks on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, different routes each day. And there’ll be hot soup and snacks to chase away the chills. Walks start on New Year’s Eve, Sunday, December 31, anytime between 4 and 7 PM, and on New Year’s Day, Monday, January 1, between 9 AM and 12 noon, at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church in West Seattle. No fee for the walks, which are noncompetitive.

The New Year’s Eve 5 kilometer route winds through the holiday lights in the Admiral neighborhood and Junction. The 10 kilometer route also enjoys neighborhood holiday lights, heads down to Alki and features the lights on and around Puget Sound, Elliott Bay and downtown Seattle. Flashlights will be helpful.

On New Year’s Day, the 5 and 10 kilometer routes take walkers through North Admiral, enjoying a number of viewpoints looking over Elliott Bay. 10K walkers also walk along the Puget Sound shoreline, through a number of parks and shoreline features.

From I-5, take exit 163 (northbound) or 163A (southbound), and cross West Seattle bridge. Exit at Admiral Way. Go up Admiral Way a little over a mile to California Ave SW, a major intersection. Turn left and go .3 mile to West Seattle High School parking lot, adjacent to St. John’s Church and the start/finish.

This event is hosted by the Emerald City Wanderers and St John the Baptist Episcopal Church, and is sanctioned by the American Volkssport Association. Information about volkssports will be available.

New Year’s Day 2018 walks with Emerald City Wanderers @ Starting at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church
Jan 1 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

From Emerald City Wanderers:

Walking is a great way to enjoy New Year’s Eve and Day with family, friends and other kindred spirits. We’ll have 5 and 10 kilometer walks on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, different routes each day. And there’ll be hot soup and snacks to chase away the chills. Walks start on New Year’s Eve, Sunday, December 31, anytime between 4 and 7 PM, and on New Year’s Day, Monday, January 1, between 9 AM and 12 noon, at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church in West Seattle. No fee for the walks, which are noncompetitive.

The New Year’s Eve 5 kilometer route winds through the holiday lights in the Admiral neighborhood and Junction. The 10 kilometer route also enjoys neighborhood holiday lights, heads down to Alki and features the lights on and around Puget Sound, Elliott Bay and downtown Seattle. Flashlights will be helpful.

On New Year’s Day, the 5 and 10 kilometer routes take walkers through North Admiral, enjoying a number of viewpoints looking over Elliott Bay. 10K walkers also walk along the Puget Sound shoreline, through a number of parks and shoreline features.

From I-5, take exit 163 (northbound) or 163A (southbound), and cross West Seattle bridge. Exit at Admiral Way. Go up Admiral Way a little over a mile to California Ave SW, a major intersection. Turn left and go .3 mile to West Seattle High School parking lot, adjacent to St. John’s Church and the start/finish.

This event is hosted by the Emerald City Wanderers and St John the Baptist Episcopal Church, and is sanctioned by the American Volkssport Association. Information about volkssports will be available.

The Dave Holo Trio performs @ Salty’s on Alki
Jan 5 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor) presents live New Orleans jazz featuring Dave Holo Trio.
Come listen to Dave Holo and his talented musical mates! Here’s what Dave has to say about his own musical journey, “Stumbling onto the local traditional jazz scene a few years after moving to Seattle was huge for me. I’ve been blessed in many ways. Regardless, it would be hard for me to overstate the impact of jazz on my life. I’ve met most of my friends through jazz; I’ve traveled; I’ve played and recorded with some amazing musicians. I really love those nights when I have my best stuff, the band has it all working, and we make a real connection with an audience … wow! It’s pretty heady stuff!”

Live music and a Waterfront View of the City. Enjoy the famous Salty’s food and fare, but there is no food or drink minimum.

Words, Writers, West Seattle: New venue for David Hansen’s ‘Battle Ready’ @ Southwest Library
Jan 5 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Jan. 5th Presentation of David Hansen’s “Battle Ready” for Words, Writers & West Seattle has changed venue:

This free book-talk event by ‘Words, Writers & West Seattle’ of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society takes place at 5 PM at the Southwest Branch of the Seattle Public Library (9010 35th Ave SW, West Seattle 99126), on Friday, January 5, 2018, beginning the fifth year of the series.

Described as “A scholarly study of the Puget Sound forts”, Battle Ready: National Coast Defense System and the Fortification of Puget Sound 1894-1925 (Wash. State University Press) summarizes the fascinating saga of Washington State’s seacoast defense, presenting the broad story in both a national and local context. Extensively researched by West Seattle architectural historian David Hansen, the book describes designs, innovations, frustrations over implementation plans, and the experience of serving in the fortifications during their period of greatest importance.

Remnants of Puget Sound fortifications — altered landscapes and an array of concrete structure — are silent reminders of a unique chapter in Pacific Northwest history. The ocean inlet’s wide entrance, deep waters, and recurrent fog left it vulnerable to attack. The waterway finally became part of the National Coast Defense System in 1894, when the value of real and personal property along its shores surpassed $160 million. None of Puget Sound’s five forts ever saw battle, but like many military installations, they were most valuable as a strong deterrent.

Hansen’s family moved to Seattle in 1946 and he attended Lafayette and Alki Elementary, James Madison Jr. High and West Seattle High School before attending the University of Washington. He returned to West Seattle in 1967 after service in the military, and moved to Olympia in 1971 where he now resides.

Hansen’s profession is architectural history and his publications are associated with that field. He was a contributor to “Built in Washington”, a survey of the state’s historic building stock and he has been published in both professional and popular journals, including Technology and Culture (University of Chicago), Columbia (Washington State Historical Society), and World Heritage Papers (UNESCO). He has written many nominations to the National Register of Historic Places and has presented papers to conferences in North America and Europe.

West Seattle Meaningful Movies: ‘Dr. Strangelove’ @ Neighborhood House High Point
Jan 6 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

This year at the West Seattle Meaningful Movies, a number of neighborhood organizations are showing a movie of their choice. Here’s a chance to get to know West Seattle Neighbors for Peace and Justice!

On Saturday, January 6,
West Seattle Neighbors for Peace and Justice present

“Dr. Strangelove,” directed by Stanley Kubrick (1964) and starring Peter Sellers and George C. Scott, is a comedy ridiculing the nuclear-war plans of the United States and the Soviet Union. An insane general launches a first strike against the Soviet Union, and a President and his advisors and generals try to call the launch back. In many ways this film is too close to being an actual documentary. It eerily resembles our nuclear predicament today. Despite widespread concern about Trump’s mental stability, he remains in control of the world’s most powerful nuclear arsenal.

93 minutes

Good news! The United Nations has passed a Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. It is the first legally binding international agreement to completely eliminate nuclear weapons. (The United States has not yet signed on.) And on December 10, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) won the Nobel Peace Prize–in part for its work to help pass this treaty. West Seattle Neighbors for Peace and Justice are a part of the ICAN coalition.

After the movie Lilly Adams of Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility (also part of the ICAN coalition), will share ideas for how we can move toward a nuclear-weapons-free world.

6:30 – doors open for refreshments and social time
7:00 – movie, followed by optional facilitated discussion

At High Point Neighborhood House
6400 Sylvan Way SW, Seattle 98126
Bus numbers 21 and 128
