    1. “The Little Dog Laughed” @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery

      “The Little Dog Laughed,” the newest production at ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery, opens January 22nd and runs until February 16th with performances at 7:30 pm Wednesdays through Saturdays and at 3 pm on Saturday and Sunday. More from ArtsWest:

      ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery is pleased to present “The Little Dog Laughed.” Five-time Tony nominated Playwright Douglas Carter Beane takes us on the tangy ride of Mitchell Green, a movie star who would have it all if he didn’t have that wee problem of keeping his “slightly recurring case of homosexuality” under wraps. Throw in the crass agent, the darling rent boy who has stolen Mitchell’s heart, and the rent boy’s girlfriend – what the rent boy has a girl? Pour over ice and you will be served up a deep shot glass of witty banter and risqué humor.

      Performances: Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays* at 3 pm

    2. ‘Rollathon 2014′ skate-stravaganza fundraiser @ Southgate Roller Rink
      5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      From Arts Corps:

      It’s time to dust off your roller skates and pull out your costumes! Arts Corps is gearing up for its second annual skate-stravaganza fundraiser, Rollathon 2014.

      We will celebrate our fund-and-friend raising at the Rollathon on February 9, 5:00 – 7:00 pm at the Southgate Roller Rink. Tickets will be available at the door ($10 each) for non-team members.

      Here are 4 quick reasons to get involved:

      ~ Community-Based Creativity: The skills we build through arts education are relevant in all areas of our life: imagination, critical thinking, risk-taking, persistence, reflection, and beyond!
      ~ Racial Justice & Arts Education: Our programs focus on educating and empowering young people, especially working-class youth of color, to directly address the racial disparities in access to arts education. Arts access is deeply connected to broader struggles for education reform and youth liberation.
      ~ Fun! – raiser: This event is going to be way fun and silly. There are costumes, prizes, roller-skating, team themes and more. What more could you need?
      ~ Grassroots Fundraising: Through creative fundraising, we are making this work sustainable and rooted in our values.

      Are you ready to sign up, and earn the title of “fundraising extraordinaire”? It takes a few easy steps… go here to sign up. If you need help navigating Crowdrise, visit our directions page here.

    2. Executive Constantine delivers ’2014 State of the County’ address @ White Center Heights Elementary School
      10:00 am – 11:00 am

      For the first time ever, a King County Executive will deliver the State of the County address in one of the county’s unincorporated areas.

      At White Center Heights Elementary School, Executive Dow Constantine will frame the policy agenda for his second term, including plans for confronting two of the generational challenges of our time.

      This special meeting of the Metropolitan King County Council will take place on:

      Monday, February 10
      10:00 am
      White Center Heights Elementary School
      10015 6th Ave. SW, Seattle

      (Street Parking is limited)

      Parking
      White Center Heights Elementary recognizes that parking can be an issue for those wishing to visit the school. Since the school itself has limited parking and there are no nearby parking structures, we recommend that you look for street parking throughout the Greenbridge development.

      Ample street parking is available on:
      · 8th Ave SW: located west of the school
      · SW 102nd St: located south of the school
      · 6th Ave SW: located east of the school
      · 7th Ave SW: located north of the school

      ADA Accessible spaces are available in the White Center Heights Elementary School parking lot. The best way to access parking lot is to enter from 6th Ave SW on the east side of the school. The ADA spaces are located at the most northern end of the parking lot. Follow the ramp down to the rotunda and continue in a circle up to the front door. ADA drop-off is also available from SW 100th St.

      Public Transportation
      Metro buses provide a ride to within one block of White Center Heights Elementary School from neighborhoods across the county. Plan your bus trip today by visiting Metro’s Trip Planner.

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.”

      A free seminar “Having the Conversation” for children of aging parents, hosted at The Kenney (WSB sponsor):

      Join us for a free seminar on “Having The Conversation,” Thursday, Feb. 13 starting at 6 pm at The Kenney (WSB sponsor), West Seattle’s only Continuing Care Retirement Community, 7125 Fauntleroy Way SW. The presenter is Moraine Byrne, with more than 20 years of experience guiding and counseling families on how to have a meaningful and respectful conversation with aging parents. To reserve your spot by calling 206.937.2800 or register online at TheKenney.org. Walk-ins are welcome the day of the event.

    5. Archbishop J. Peter Sartain to lead Anointing of the Sick @ Providence Mount St. Vincent
      10:30 am – 12:00 pm

      Seattle Archbishop J. Peter Sartain will lead Mass and Anointing of the Sick for World Day of the Sick on Saturday Feb. 15, 2014, at
      Providence Mount St. Vincent in West Seattle.

      The public is invited to attend Mass, which begins at 10:30 am and includes a reception afterwards. It will be in the third floor chapel at Providence Mount St. Vincent, 4831 35th Ave SW., Seattle.

      The World Day of the Sick is a feast day of the Roman Catholic Church that was instituted on May 13, 1992, by Pope John Paul II. It is celebrated every year on the commemoration of Our Lady of Lourdes for all believers as a special time of prayer and sharing, of offering one’s suffering. The feast of Lourdes was chosen because many pilgrims and visitors to Lourdes have reportedly been healed by intercerssions of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

      Baby Ketten Karaoke starts at 9 pm at Skylark Café & Club. Details on Baby Ketten and songlists here.

      “I know, I know, karaoke is supposed to kinda suck. It is traditionally composed of bad sound, limited song choices, and frat boy margaritaville sing-alongs. 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.”

      Categories: Films

      At South Seattle Community College (WSB sponsor):

      Filmmaker, Frank Abe, will show his film “Conscience and the Constitution” and speak about Japanese American Day of Remembrance.

      In World War II, a handful of young Americans refused to be drafted from an American concentration camp.

      They were ready to fight for their country, but not before the government restored their rights as U.S. citizens and released their families from camp. It was a classic example of civil disobedience — but the government prosecuted them as criminals and Japanese American leaders and veterans ostracized them as traitors.

      CONSCIENCE AND THE CONSTITUTION delves into the heart of the Japanese American conscience and a controversy that continues today. Experience the choice faced by any group when confronted by mass injustice — whether to comply or to resist.

      Learn about energy issues facing our nation and how solar power plays a role in the solution
      We’ll show you how solar panels actually convert abundant light from the sun into usable electric power
      Learn exactly how well solar power works in the Pacific Northwest
      Discover all about State and Federal incentives, along with how much a typical solar investment costs
      We’ll show you how your system will impact your new electric bill, how much the State will pay annually, along with typical payback periods
      And why going solar with solar with the Sunergize West Seattle is a smart decision and investment
      Washington State has one of the most innovative and generous incentive programs in the country. These state incentives combined with federal incentives actually make solar more financially attractive than going solar in many of the sunniest states! No wonder solar in Seattle has grown by 50% annually.

      The time is ticking away to take advantage of the remaining incentive lifespan, so now is the perfect time to claim your energy independence green investment before this solar season kicks in.

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 sing challenging music and Bert is a fun, yet demanding conductor that always brings out the best in his singers. In addition to being a choral conductor, Bert has taught private voice lessons for over 30 years so he knows what he wants to hear and how to get it… in a loving manner.

Barb Danforth, in addition to having her own children, has worked as both a preschool teacher and parent educator for over 20 years. Her thoughtful and compassionate approach to parenting will give you the skills and confidence you need to support your child through the transition out of diapers.

      Friday and Saturday, February 38th/March 1st at 7:30 pm at Kenyon Hall:
      Ronny Cox and Friends

      Last season we presented the Ronny Cox Trio to a capacity audience, so this season we’ve scheduled two performances to accommodate all those who are eager to experience the music of these amazing artists.

      You may not know the name Ronny Cox, but you certainly know his work. With a career that spans over a hundred and twenty-five films and television shows, he’s often ironically identified with the villains he has portrayed in movies like Total Recall, Robocop, and the ruthless politician in the hit science fiction TV series Stargate. Ronny’s first film—his first time acting in front of a camera—was as the guitarist in the famous “dueling banjos” scene in Deliverance. His second big film was Bound for Glory, Hal Ashby’s film about Woody Guthrie. Now can you picture him?

      Ronny has been writing songs and telling stories for over four decades. We’re honored to welcome him and his trio back to Kenyon Hall!

      Please visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMUPIkY1RYA to get a taste of what he has in store for us.

      For this show only, general admission tickets (no table seats) are $20, and $18 for seniors and students. To make a reservation, please e-mail kenyonhall@earthlink.net. You’ll receive an e-mail confirming your reservation.

While the whole process takes a little longer, flatbread or pocketbread is relatively quick and easy to make, and it’s a delicious bread to share with friends and family.

We’ll provide all the ingredients and you’ll make your very own breads to take home, warm out of the oven!

    5. Camp Long 1st & 3rd Saturday Morning Family Nature Walks
      10:30 am – 12:00 pm

      From Stewart Wechsler of Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures in Nature:

      Join Stewart on an adventure with your family around Camp Long’s 68 acres of habitat. Engage with and learn about everything (partly depending on the season) from the salamanders to the slugs, the Barred Owls to the Cooper’s Hawks in the woods, the dragonflies by the pond and butterflies to the hoverflies and snakes in the sunny spots, and from the Stinging Nettles to Hedge Nettles. Help the native community by learning an alien weed and pulling one. If you can see it, hear it or smell it Stewart can probably tell you what it is and some of its fascinating story! While the program will be quite kid friendly, regardless of your knowledge level, you will be able to learn things you didn’t know and have fun doing so.

      E-mail or call to reserve a space, ecostewart@gmail.com / 206 932-7225 (land line / message), with the number of kids and adults. Drop-ins can check if there is room. There may be cancellations for the toughest weather conditions, so check this website or the outgoing message on my land line (@ 206 932-7225) for cancellations if more than either a light rain or moderate wind, or very cold are in the forecast.

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.”

      From the cheese experts at Metropolitan Market/Admiral (WSB sponsor): It’s not a stretch to say we’ve got the best Mozzarella in town. You can see it clearly, as you watch our cheesemongers pull the curds every day. They’re not there just to put on a show (though feel free to gawk at their stretching expertise): fresh mozzarella is delightfully soft, but extremely perishable. We fresh-stretch high-quality curd into Mozzarella cheese daily to make sure you get the full experience of the sweet, milky taste and texture that earned it the Italian name, “Fior di Latte,” or “Flower of Milk.”

He is known for effortlessly switching between guitar, hurdy-gurdy, bagpipes and percussion while singing the songs of his ancestors rooted in the farmworker traditions of that region.

      Díez will play from 5:30 to 7 pm, with tapas and Spanish wines served during the event (until 9 p.m.). Before the show, NWWA will also hold their Friday wine tasting from 1 to 5 pm.

      Díez has made it his life’s work to capture and recreate sounds and traditions that may have otherwise vanished. He has performed over 2500 concerts worldwide and is recognized as an ambassador of traditional language and culture in Spain.

      Contributions will be accepted at the door to help cover costs of the
      event.

    12. Hanford St. Stairs Crime Watch Meeting
      7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      (See previous WSB coverage here.)

      We are starting a block watch because of vandalism and theft that has resulted from teens hanging out on the Hanford St. Stairs one block north of Madison Middle School.

      Teens meet there to buy or sell pot, smoke pot and drink liquor (that is probably stolen from parents such as the smashed bottle of dragon fruit infused SKY vodka currently there).

      Some neighbors are scared to use the stairs at any time and little children have to be careful of broken glass.

      If you would like to help make these stairs safer and cleaner, please join us for a block watch meeting.

      When: Tuesday, March 11th at 7 pm

      Where: At the top of the stairs – 4516 SW Hanford St. 98116

      Who: Mark Solomon from the Seattle Police Department will meet with us to discuss issues and how to solve them.

      “I know, I know, karaoke is supposed to kinda suck. It is traditionally composed of bad sound, limited song choices, and frat boy margaritaville sing-alongs. 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.”

    8. Pelvic Health and Awareness Classes begin @ West Seattle Highline Physical Therapy
      6:30 pm – 7:45 pm

      From West Seattle Highline Physical Therapy:

      This class is an introduction to a program that combines the latest medical research about pelvic floor function with the Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education®. The Feldenkrais Method® has been around for over sixty years and has helped millions of people recover function after illness, injury or trauma, by utilizing your natural ability to learn and become aware of your habits.

      The exercises you will learn are supported by research and emphasize the use of the pelvic floor muscles with other muscles in the hips, legs and torso as part of a coordinated system. When you have more awareness of the pelvic floor, your ability to sense what you are doing will also improve. You will be more able to tell if you are contracting or relaxing the pelvic floor. As you are able to discriminate this, you can then progress your ability to use the pelvic floor to suit your need or activity.

      GOALS:
      *Improve awareness of your pelvic floor
      *Learn to use your breathing to relax and balance your nervous system
      *Learn tools to improve your awareness of your postural habits

      This class is appropriate if you want to improve bladder control, reduce back or pelvic
      pain, or get help in recovering from childbirth or abdominal surgery.

      • Please wear warm, comfortable layered clothing.
      • Classes will be done in lying/sitting on exercise mats/chairs which will be provided.
      • Thursdays March 20, 27 and April 3, 6:30-7:45 PM
      • Cost: $10.00 (cash or check)
      • All proceeds from this class will go to Open Arms Perinatal Services. Please make checks payable to Open Arms Perinatal.
      Please RSVP as soon as possible, as space is limited.

      Instructor: Mary Haller
      After working as a physical therapist for two years and then studying the Feldenkrais
      Method®, Mary took time off to raise her 2 children. She is re-entering the field and is
      grateful to April Bolding, DPT and West Seattle Highline Physical Therapy for their willingness to let her shadow April as part of this process.

      April Bolding, DPT, CCE, CD will be on hand to facilitate the class.

      About Us
      West Side MOPS (Mothers-of-Preschoolers) is a support group for mothers of young children that has been an actively serving West Seattle for over 20 years! We recognize the incredibly important task that mothers are taking on and offer them a unique opportunity by providing a 2-hour retreat that includes childcare. It’s a chance for worn-out mothers to relax, enjoy a snack, an uninterrupted conversation, and to receive encouragement from our mentor moms. It’s also a wonderful place to forge friendships with other women who can empathize about these challenging preschool years.

      The group meets the first and third Fridays of the month from 9:30-11:30.

      Restorative Yoga with Milo Minnis

      Restorative Yoga focuses on poses that encourage your body to relax. This deep relaxation supports healing by stimulating your body – producing natural chemicals that can help lessen the negative effects of stress, support your immune system, and sharpen your mind. The word yoga means “unite” and Restorative Yoga asanas (poses) unite your physical, mental and spiritual elements. Your body will relax completely, and you will feel restored, renewed and energized. No experience needed. If you like savasana you will love Restorative Yoga.

    11. Baby Ketten Karaoke @ Skylark Café & Club
      9:00 pm – 11:45 pm

      Baby Ketten Karaoke starts at 9 pm at Skylark Café & Club. Details on Baby Ketten and songlists here.

      “I know, I know, karaoke is supposed to kinda suck. It is traditionally composed of bad sound, limited song choices, and frat boy margaritaville sing-alongs. 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.”
