      Angry Housewives – April 23 – May 24, 2015
      Book by A.M. Collins
      Music and Lyrics by Chad Henry

      The Angry Housewives are baaaaaccckkk!! Bored with their everyday mediocre existence and tired of the men in their lives, our four heroines get angry and form a punk-rock band to win some much needed cash in a local contest. Beginning with the first licks, this satirical twist on 1980’s feminism turns into a feverishly rompy rock-musical. Outrageous and irresistible, first produced in 1985 with music and lyrics by Seattlelite Chad Henry, Angry Housewives lays claim to the longest sold out run of a musical in Seattle history. Created by Seattleites Chad Henry and A.M. Collins, this production is coming home for a five-week run to be directed at ArtsWest by Gregory-Award winning director Shawn Belyea, with music direction by Nathan Young, and choreography by Troy Wageman.

      These gals will have you Eating Your… Cornflakes!

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.”

    11. Free clinic: How to bike commute in Seattle @ Cycle University
      6:30 pm – 7:15 pm

      Craig Undem, owner and head coach at Cycle University is giving a free clinic this Wednesday night at Cycle U at 6:30 pm: How to bike commute in Seattle. Free tea and coffee as well, finshing at 7:15 pm, 3418 Harbor Ave SW, free parking as always across the street.

      I love riding my bike in traffic (this is Craig talking), today on my commute through downtown I felt like I was a motocycle in Hong Kong in rush hour traffic, but it was a Sunday, and I was just riding to the West Seattle store from the Sand Point store. I arrived at work feeling 20 times better than when I had started, energized, calm and flush with circulation and awake. I have been a bike commuter since I moved to Colorado to start racing in 1987, and there are few things in life that make more sense than riding your bike to work. Here are the key benefits:

      1. Get in better shape

      2. No waiting in traffic or long lines of cars

      3. No gas and the repair bills are 1/20th of a car

      4. Parking is always (or almost always) right in front of your destination

      5. You feel more connected because you feel, smell and really see the
      area, you are a participant in the dance of travel, not just a passenger
      (today a road worker gave me a head nod and “have a nice ride Bro”, you
      don’t get that in a car). I also stopped and chatted with a friend at the
      West Seattle bridge and felt the wind off the water.

      6. It is often faster or just as fast as driving

      In our commuting class we will go over the key elements of a good commute:

      route
      bike/tires/brakes
      gear
      clothing for riding and working
      dangers and things to avoid
      tricks and ways to get started on any length commute
      This is a lecture/dry land class without riding. We will be doing a ride
      from West Seattle to downtown Seattle on Saturday at noon, more details at
      the clinic.
      With traffic getting worse as the economy gets better, it makes more sense
      now than ever to ride your bike to work and on errands. Email Craig with
      any questions: Craig@cycleu.com

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Angry Housewives – April 23 – May 24, 2015
      Book by A.M. Collins
      Music and Lyrics by Chad Henry

      The Angry Housewives are baaaaaccckkk!! Bored with their everyday mediocre existence and tired of the men in their lives, our four heroines get angry and form a punk-rock band to win some much needed cash in a local contest. Beginning with the first licks, this satirical twist on 1980’s feminism turns into a feverishly rompy rock-musical. Outrageous and irresistible, first produced in 1985 with music and lyrics by Seattlelite Chad Henry, Angry Housewives lays claim to the longest sold out run of a musical in Seattle history. Created by Seattleites Chad Henry and A.M. Collins, this production is coming home for a five-week run to be directed at ArtsWest by Gregory-Award winning director Shawn Belyea, with music direction by Nathan Young, and choreography by Troy Wageman.

To solve the mystery, Miss Lucy calls in Hamhock Holmes and Dr. Dachshund, the famous pig detective and her canine assistant. Holmes and Dachshund investigate the case, with help from dancing bees, timid rabbits, sassy singing hens, crooning raccoons, and prankster goats. Meanwhile, at the farm down the road, Farmer Jacky and his minions plot to make sure Farmer Jacky’s beloved giant pumpkin will win the prize instead.

      Will Holmes and Dachshund find an explanation for the mystery? Who will win the shiny new tractor? Written by Laurie Utterback and directed by Melia Scranton, Laurie Utterback, and Joel Oltyan, The Barnyard Musical Mystery features an enthusiastic cast of 81 Lafayette students in grades 3 through 5.

      The award for Best Exhibit at the County Fair is a shiny new tractor, and Miss Lucy hopes to win it by exhibiting her prize carrots. But something’s afoot: a spooky creature is haunting Miss Lucy’s garden, scaring away her farmhands and keeping them from tending the crops! To solve the mystery, Miss Lucy calls in Hamhock Holmes and Dr. Dachshund, the famous pig detective and her canine assistant. Holmes and Dachshund investigate the case, with help from dancing bees, timid rabbits, sassy singing hens, crooning raccoons, and prankster goats. Meanwhile, at the farm down the road, Farmer Jacky and his minions plot to make sure Farmer Jacky’s beloved giant pumpkin will win the prize instead.

      Will Holmes and Dachshund find an explanation for the mystery? Who will win the shiny new tractor? Written by Laurie Utterback and directed by Melia Scranton, Laurie Utterback, and Joel Oltyan, The Barnyard Musical Mystery features an enthusiastic cast of 81 Lafayette students in grades 3 through 5.

      Admission is free, with a suggested donation of $1 per ticket to help cover production expenses.Chief Sealth High School is located at

      Angry Housewives – April 23 – May 24, 2015
      Book by A.M. Collins
      Music and Lyrics by Chad Henry

      The Angry Housewives are baaaaaccckkk!! Bored with their everyday mediocre existence and tired of the men in their lives, our four heroines get angry and form a punk-rock band to win some much needed cash in a local contest. Beginning with the first licks, this satirical twist on 1980’s feminism turns into a feverishly rompy rock-musical. Outrageous and irresistible, first produced in 1985 with music and lyrics by Seattlelite Chad Henry, Angry Housewives lays claim to the longest sold out run of a musical in Seattle history. Created by Seattleites Chad Henry and A.M. Collins, this production is coming home for a five-week run to be directed at ArtsWest by Gregory-Award winning director Shawn Belyea, with music direction by Nathan Young, and choreography by Troy Wageman.

      These gals will have you Eating Your… Cornflakes!

      Angry Housewives – April 23 – May 24, 2015
      Book by A.M. Collins
      Music and Lyrics by Chad Henry

      The Angry Housewives are baaaaaccckkk!! Bored with their everyday mediocre existence and tired of the men in their lives, our four heroines get angry and form a punk-rock band to win some much needed cash in a local contest. Beginning with the first licks, this satirical twist on 1980’s feminism turns into a feverishly rompy rock-musical. Outrageous and irresistible, first produced in 1985 with music and lyrics by Seattlelite Chad Henry, Angry Housewives lays claim to the longest sold out run of a musical in Seattle history. Created by Seattleites Chad Henry and A.M. Collins, this production is coming home for a five-week run to be directed at ArtsWest by Gregory-Award winning director Shawn Belyea, with music direction by Nathan Young, and choreography by Troy Wageman.

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.”

      Angry Housewives – April 23 – May 24, 2015
      Book by A.M. Collins
      Music and Lyrics by Chad Henry

      The Angry Housewives are baaaaaccckkk!! Bored with their everyday mediocre existence and tired of the men in their lives, our four heroines get angry and form a punk-rock band to win some much needed cash in a local contest. Beginning with the first licks, this satirical twist on 1980’s feminism turns into a feverishly rompy rock-musical. Outrageous and irresistible, first produced in 1985 with music and lyrics by Seattlelite Chad Henry, Angry Housewives lays claim to the longest sold out run of a musical in Seattle history. Created by Seattleites Chad Henry and A.M. Collins, this production is coming home for a five-week run to be directed at ArtsWest by Gregory-Award winning director Shawn Belyea, with music direction by Nathan Young, and choreography by Troy Wageman.

      These gals will have you Eating Your… Cornflakes!

      The Angry Housewives are baaaaaccckkk!! Bored with their everyday mediocre existence and tired of the men in their lives, our four heroines get angry and form a punk-rock band to win some much needed cash in a local contest. Beginning with the first licks, this satirical twist on 1980’s feminism turns into a feverishly rompy rock-musical. Outrageous and irresistible, first produced in 1985 with music and lyrics by Seattlelite Chad Henry, Angry Housewives lays claim to the longest sold out run of a musical in Seattle history. Created by Seattleites Chad Henry and A.M. Collins, this production is coming home for a five-week run to be directed at ArtsWest by Gregory-Award winning director Shawn Belyea, with music direction by Nathan Young, and choreography by Troy Wageman.

      These gals will have you Eating Your… Cornflakes!

      In an effort to build awareness and strengthen the health of Seattle’s urban fruit canopy, City Fruit is hosting neighborhood-specific pest prevention campaigns. Join us as we unite, then diverge to walk door to door in West Seattle educating and assisting homeowners in protecting their apple trees from pests. We will meet May 16, 2015, 10:00 am–1:00 pm at 8845 34th Ave SW (near Fauntleroy Park) to receive supplies and learn proper technique before breaking into groups and helping our neighbors care for their fruit trees! The more apples we can protect, the more fruit we can harvest and share with the community.

      This event is easy and fun for all ages! After the work party join us at a local neighborhood pub, grab a drink and some grub and socialize with your neighbors!

      Sign-up here to volunteer and check out all of our other upcoming events.

    11. Alki “scouting expeditions” @ Log House Museum
      10:30 am – 12:00 pm

      From Clay Eals, executive director of Southwest Seattle Historical Society:

      The history of Alki Beach awaits a rich, multi-layered walking tour to be developed this spring by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, and you can help make it happen:

      The historical society plans three “scouting expeditions” on foot from 10:30 am to noon on three Saturdays this month. The walks will start and end at the historical society’s “Birthplace of Seattle” Log House Museum, 3003 61st Ave. S.W.

      People can sign up for one, two or all three sessions. They will cover these sections of the beach:

      ~ The promenade, Saturday, May 9

      ~ The sandy beach, Saturday, May 16

      ~ The rocky beach north to the former Luna Park (often called Anchor Park), Saturday, May 30

      Leading the sessions is Dave Hrachovina, who grew up in West Seattle and is the museum’s regular docent/greeter on Fridays and Saturdays. He is looking forward to putting together the beach walks.

      “You never get tired of Alki,” he says. “It is like an inexhaustible spring of pleasure for young and old. It is Seattle’s headwater, and it is contagious. The more you learn, the more it grows on you.”

      The purpose of the sessions is to identify points of interest to be included on a beach walk, everything from the Duwamish tribal story and the Landing Party saga to the times of shacks, tents and the “Coney Island of the West.” Icons present and past will be part of the mix, including the “Birthplace of Seattle” monument, the Statue of Liberty replica, the Alki Bathhouse, the Alki Natatorium and Luna Park.

      If you are interested in taking part in these “scouting expeditions,” please call 206-938-5293 or e-mail clay.eals@loghousemuseum.info to reserve your spot.

      John has been creating different types of media since his very early years while living and growing up on the Wind River Reservation in Ft. Washakie Wyoming.

      “Although I mostly paint images of the Plains and Southwest, I have been introduced to a whole new life force in the Northwest and enjoy the various water creatures and The Great Journey of the Coastal Clans and Family’s”.

      “We are made aware Dailey of many Teachings and it is up to us to choose the path of our Life”.

      Angry Housewives – April 23 – May 24, 2015
      Book by A.M. Collins
      Music and Lyrics by Chad Henry

      The Angry Housewives are baaaaaccckkk!! Bored with their everyday mediocre existence and tired of the men in their lives, our four heroines get angry and form a punk-rock band to win some much needed cash in a local contest. Beginning with the first licks, this satirical twist on 1980’s feminism turns into a feverishly rompy rock-musical. Outrageous and irresistible, first produced in 1985 with music and lyrics by Seattlelite Chad Henry, Angry Housewives lays claim to the longest sold out run of a musical in Seattle history. Created by Seattleites Chad Henry and A.M. Collins, this production is coming home for a five-week run to be directed at ArtsWest by Gregory-Award winning director Shawn Belyea, with music direction by Nathan Young, and choreography by Troy Wageman.

      These gals will have you Eating Your… Cornflakes!

      Angry Housewives – April 23 – May 24, 2015
      Book by A.M. Collins
      Music and Lyrics by Chad Henry

      The Angry Housewives are baaaaaccckkk!! Bored with their everyday mediocre existence and tired of the men in their lives, our four heroines get angry and form a punk-rock band to win some much needed cash in a local contest. Beginning with the first licks, this satirical twist on 1980’s feminism turns into a feverishly rompy rock-musical. Outrageous and irresistible, first produced in 1985 with music and lyrics by Seattlelite Chad Henry, Angry Housewives lays claim to the longest sold out run of a musical in Seattle history. Created by Seattleites Chad Henry and A.M. Collins, this production is coming home for a five-week run to be directed at ArtsWest by Gregory-Award winning director Shawn Belyea, with music direction by Nathan Young, and choreography by Troy Wageman.

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.”

      Encountering the Everyday Wild
      with Allen Braden and Lyanda Lynn Haupt
      Favorite Poem by Eric Jordan of The Office Junction

      7:00 pm, Wed., May 20th, 2015, at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor)

      From backyard bestiaries to the farms of White Swan, nature slays us. From the intelligence of crows to the many chambers of a cow’s heart, we learn to look again at the commonplace life that surrounds us.

      For the May 20th, 2015 edition of WordsWest Literary Series, Washington poet Allen Braden and West Seattle naturalist Lyanda Lynn Haupt, will join us for a night of natural highs. This month WordsWest is again very grateful for a grant from Poets & Writers that allows us to pay our writers for their time and talent.

      Allen Braden is the author of A Wreath of Down and Drops of Blood (University of Georgia) and Elegy in the Passive Voice (University of Alaska/Fairbanks). His poems have been anthologized in The Bedford Introduction to Literature, Poetry: An Introduction, Best New Poets and Spreading the Word: Editors on Poetry. He teaches at Tacoma Community College.

      Lyanda Lynn Haupt is a naturalist, eco-philosopher, and speaker whose writing is at the forefront of the movement to connect people with nature in their everyday lives. Her most recent book is The Urban Bestiary: Encountering the Everyday Wild (Little, Brown 2013). Her previous books include Crow Planet: Essential Wisdom from the Urban Wilderness (Little, Brown 2009), awarded the 2010 Sigurd F. Olson Nature Writing Award; Rare Encounters with Ordinary Birds (Sasquatch 2001), winner of the 2002 Washington State Book Award; and Pilgrim on the Great Bird Continent: The Importance of Everything and Other Lessons from Darwin’s Lost Notebooks (Little, Brown 2006).

      Every third Wednesday, 7 pm, at C & P Coffee Company, WordsWest hosts literary events that range from readings by published local and national authors, to craft discussions and guided writing explorations for every experience level. Each month a community member from a local, independent business shares his or her favorite poem as part of the Favorite Poem Project.

      WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw.

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Angry Housewives – April 23 – May 24, 2015
      Book by A.M. Collins
      Music and Lyrics by Chad Henry

      The Angry Housewives are baaaaaccckkk!! Bored with their everyday mediocre existence and tired of the men in their lives, our four heroines get angry and form a punk-rock band to win some much needed cash in a local contest. Beginning with the first licks, this satirical twist on 1980’s feminism turns into a feverishly rompy rock-musical. Outrageous and irresistible, first produced in 1985 with music and lyrics by Seattlelite Chad Henry, Angry Housewives lays claim to the longest sold out run of a musical in Seattle history. Created by Seattleites Chad Henry and A.M. Collins, this production is coming home for a five-week run to be directed at ArtsWest by Gregory-Award winning director Shawn Belyea, with music direction by Nathan Young, and choreography by Troy Wageman.

      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.

      Angry Housewives – April 23 – May 24, 2015
      Book by A.M. Collins
      Music and Lyrics by Chad Henry

      The Angry Housewives are baaaaaccckkk!! Bored with their everyday mediocre existence and tired of the men in their lives, our four heroines get angry and form a punk-rock band to win some much needed cash in a local contest. Beginning with the first licks, this satirical twist on 1980’s feminism turns into a feverishly rompy rock-musical. Outrageous and irresistible, first produced in 1985 with music and lyrics by Seattlelite Chad Henry, Angry Housewives lays claim to the longest sold out run of a musical in Seattle history. Created by Seattleites Chad Henry and A.M. Collins, this production is coming home for a five-week run to be directed at ArtsWest by Gregory-Award winning director Shawn Belyea, with music direction by Nathan Young, and choreography by Troy Wageman.

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!”

      Team Red, White and Blue will host free functional fitness workouts at fitness centers throughout the greater Puget Sound area from May 21 to May 25 as part of the nationwide event in honor of Memorial Day.

      WOD – or Workout of the Day – with Warriors is a functional fitness tribute workout that takes place twice a year on Veterans and Memorial Day at gyms throughout the country. WOD with Warriors supports Team RWB, whose mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their communities through physical and social activity.

      Each gym will host a “21-Gun Salute” themed WOD. A 21-Gun Salute is the nation’s highest display of honor, appropriately reserved for fallen troops on Memorial Day. The WOD intends to replicate this, to honor our nation’s warriors, past, present and future. The 21-minute workout and 21 repetitions signify a 21-Gun Salute, and the five exercises to be conducted in the time frame represent each branch of the military.

      To sign up to attend one or more of the events, visit www.WODwithWarriors.com and select a location. Each event is free, though donations to Team RWB are welcome. Additionally, shirts can be purchased for $20 at the time of registration. Shirt must be purchased by the second week of May to ensure delivery before WOD with Warriors.

    2. Memorial Day poppies @ West Seattle Thriftway
      8:00 am – 4:00 pm

      American Legion Post 160 and Auxiliary Unit 160 will distribute Memorial Day Poppies on Saturday May 23rd and Sunday May 24th from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm at West Seattle Thriftway (WSB sponsor) located at 4201 SW Morgan St in the Morgan Junction.

      The traditional poppy distributed Memorial Day weekend signifies “honor the dead and help the living.”

      The poppy as the memorial flower for the American war dead is a tradition which began in the years following World War I. Veterans remembered the bright red, wild poppies which grew and bloomed on the battle fields and graves of those men buried in the sacred plots of French soil, which was Flanders’ Field. Soldiers of all nations came to look upon this flower as a living symbol of their dead comrades’ sacrifice and a sign of hope and renewal for those who lived to remember.

      Today, the poppies distributed Memorial Day weekend are made by hospitalized veterans in V.A. hospitals or nursing homes and thousands are ready for a big distribution in May.

      West Seattle American Legion Post 160 and the Unit 160 Auxiliary will be continuing the annual tradition of offering poppies this Memorial Day weekend. All money received during the distribution of these poppies is returned to the veterans through service programs of the American Legion and the American Legion Auxiliary.

      When you see someone offering a poppy, know that your donation helps veterans and wearing the poppy shows your support for those veterans.

Bored with their everyday mediocre existence and tired of the men in their lives, our four heroines get angry and form a punk-rock band to win some much needed cash in a local contest. Beginning with the first licks, this satirical twist on 1980’s feminism turns into a feverishly rompy rock-musical. Outrageous and irresistible, first produced in 1985 with music and lyrics by Seattlelite Chad Henry, Angry Housewives lays claim to the longest sold out run of a musical in Seattle history. Created by Seattleites Chad Henry and A.M. Collins, this production is coming home for a five-week run to be directed at ArtsWest by Gregory-Award winning director Shawn Belyea, with music direction by Nathan Young, and choreography by Troy Wageman.

    9. Fundraiser for Nepal @ C & P Coffee Company
      3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

      C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor) will host a fundraiser for Nepal on Sunday May 24th:

      Silent Auction and Fundraising Party being held to benefit Nepal at C&P Coffee Company

      The death toll in Nepal has risen to 7,500 and is expected to reach nearly 15,000. The earthquake that hit the country on April 25th, left 8 million homes to rebuild along with 800 schools. Many of these homes are in rural areas that have yet to receive aid, just before the country’s monsoon season begins.

      Money raised from the event will support ‘Changing Lives Nepal’, a nonprofit organization, entirely volunteer run. When the earthquake hit, ‘Changing Lives Nepal’ founder, Deana Zabaldo and assistant leader, a West Seattle resident, Stewart Wolfe was guiding their team to Everest Base Camp for West Seattle based company, Mountain Madness. The entire team is safe, and without injury. ‘Changing Lives Nepal’ has many programs to help the people of Nepal, which now includes the rebuilding and reconstruction of the homes and schools that need attention.

      Come spend the evening with us, as we do our part to help make a difference. The auction items are rolling in from business such as Mountain to Sound Outfitters, Thunder Road Guitars, Alki Bike and Board, West Side Music Academy, 8 Bit Arcade, original art work, and so much more! There will be live music, beer and wine, and some surprises!
