      At South Seattle College (WSB sponsor):

      The South Seattle College Art Gallery Presents the Opening Reception for “Throwbacks and Unsual”
      An Exhibition of pottery curated by guest James Lobb
      Wednesday November 19th, 2014, 12:00 pm–2:00 pm

      Throwbacks and Unusual is an exhibition of handmade pottery by Seattle area artists Alix Broduer, Wally Bivens, Damien Grava, Isaac Howard, James Lobb, Deborah Schwartzkopf, George Rodriguez, and Ellie Weber. Many artists in this show take a unique approach to familiar pottery forms. Some of these potters choose to look back for inspiration, to a time when the handmade object was much more common place in the home. Others are inventing new uses and new ceramic objects for the evolving 21st century domestic setting. Regardless of the approach,this is not only a remarkable collection of pieces, but demonstrates the wide range of possibilities that handmade pottery can be.

      Gallery Hours:
      Monday – Friday
      10:00 am – 4:00 pm

      Favorite Poem by Delridge Grocery Co-op
      Wednesday, November 19th, 2014, 7:00 pm
      at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor)

      West Seattle WordsWest Literary Series is a monthly invitation to hear world-class writers from near and far and to join and nurture the West Seattle literary community.

      What is the simple link between savoring good food and living a good life? How does what happens in the kitchen, what is served at the table, make a key difference to the interactions between friends and family both in our homes and in our local restaurants?

      For the November 19, 2014 edition of WordsWest Literary Series, pie poet extraordinaire Kate Lebo and New York Times Bestselling author Molly Wizenberg will read their work and explore with the audience connections between handcrafted food, creative kitchens and the written word.

      In honor of Thanksgiving, a holiday focused on thanks as well as great food, all proceeds from sales of the evening’s donated pie (Kate) and chocolate-chip cookies with gray salt (Molly) will go to West Seattle Food Bank.

      Kate Lebo’s poems and prose have appeared in New England Review, Best New Poets, the Rumpus, Gastronomica, Willow Springs, and Poetry Northwest, and she’s the author of two books about the folk art of pie-making, A Commonplace Book of Pie and Pie School: Lessons in Fruit, Flour, and Butter. For more, visit katelebo.com.

      Molly Wizenberg is a Seattle-based writer, photographer, and co-owner of two restaurants, Delancey and Essex. She is the voice behind the award-winning
      blog Orangette and the author of two New York Times bestsellers, A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table, and Delancey: A Man, A Woman, A Restaurant, A Marriage. When she’s not busy with that stuff, she’s hanging out with her husband Brandon, daughter June, and two dogs named Jack and Alice.

      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. Folks from local, independent businesses share a favorite poem as part of the Favorite Poem Project. On November 19, Delridge Grocery Co-op, will join us.

      WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw. For more information, please contact: wordswestliterary@gmail.com.

    14. *7:30 pm* – “Dogfight” @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery
      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

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

    9. Community meeting: Special Meeting: Church of Nazarene Comprehensive Plan Amendment @ The Kenney
      7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

      From the Morgan Community Association (MoCA):

      Thursday, Nov 20, 7:00 pm
      Location: The Kenney (WSB sponsor), in Community Room

      Special Meeting regarding the Church of Nazarene Comprehensive Plan Amendment to finalize language. MoCA membership previously endorsed the plan of the Nazarene Church to develop a vacant portion of their property near the corner of 42nd and Juneau for 6 townhome (semi-detached) housing units and a public-access playground/park area. That area, pursuant to the Morgan Junction Neighborhood Plan of 1999, is currently zoned for single-family housing units. The proposed development is within the Urban Village specified in that Plan. In October, MoCA was asked by the Seattle Department of Planning and Development (DPD) to revisit our Neighborhood Plan, to provide stipulated language that would allow a single-case exception to that original 1999 Plan. This would allow the current multi-family proposal to proceed. At the October 15, 2014 MoCA meeting, this was discussed and various options for how to word the Comprehensive Plan amendment were complied. A small committee met afterwards to craft the proposed language for the amendment, which will be presented and voted on at this meeting. Following the meeting, DPD will take our proposed wording and ensure that it meets all city and legal requirements and then present the final amendment legislation to City Council in early 2015.

      It is very important that the all residents of the Morgan Junction Urban Village and the Morgan Junction Stewardship area attend and participate in this meeting. This change to the Morgan Junction Comprehensive Plan is first time we will be amending the goals and policies supporting the Plan since it was created by an extensive community process in 1998-99. We want to make sure that all in Morgan Junction are aware of this proposed language change and the potential impacts of this precedent setting request by the Department of Planning and Development. The Morgan Junction Urban Village boundaries and the surrounding The Morgan Junction Stewardship area can be viewed at http://www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/npi/factsheets/Morgan Junction Residential Urban Village.pdf

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

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

      Gathering Bones is revisited up close and in the round, as a site specific performance at Twilight Gallery. The performance takes place in conjunction with the gallery’s upcoming exhibit, Our Daily Armor: Woman as Warrior in Contemporary Art and Adornment.

      Gathering Bones is an evening length performance experience exploring themes of internal personal power, feminism and femininity through dance and music. This movement collage dives into princess, warrior and queen archetypes through a variety of cultural histories and resources. Gathering Bones goes back in time, exploring stories and myths of powerful and wild women.

      Gathering Bones premiered in Seattle on May 18 and 19, 2013 at Velocity Dance Center. After sold out houses and rave reviews, Gathering Bones toured to Portland for Pacific Dance Makers in June and Conduit’s Dance+ Festival in July 2013.

      Gathering Bones at Twilight Gallery offers the audience a chance to experience this work in the round, up close and personal. Re-created for five dancers, the piece will bring the gallery space to life with powerful movement and visual imagery. Step inside and witness the journey. With only 40 seats available, audience will watch from within the dance, sitting on the floor or standing with the dancers in the performance space. This is a rare and intimate performance experience not to be missed.

    19. *7:30 pm* – “Dogfight” @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery
      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

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

      Buy tickets online here.

    7. Fred Talks series: Dr. J. Richard Goss @ Alki UCC/Kol HaNeshamah
      3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

      Just announced by Kol HaNeshamah, their first “FRED Talk”:

      Listen to what Harborview Medical Center Medical Director, J. Richard Goss M.D., has to say about Ebola, Obamacare and other hot topics which impact our community Sunday, Nov. 23, from 3-5 pm at Alki UCC/Kol HaNeshamah, 6115 SW Hinds, as part of West Seattle’s first FRED Talk.

      If you are familiar with Ted Talks, you will understand FRED Talks. FRED, which stands for Fresh, Relevant, Educational & Dynamic Talks are a way for community members to come together to hear from those who are on the front lines working hard in our community each day.

      “We see one another at the grocery store, ride buses together, attend our children’s’ games or performances and say hello,” says Kol HaNeshamah Rabbi Zari Weiss, “but we seldom take time to really learn about the challenges and the joys we face on a daily basis at work. FRED Talks are designed to give us the opportunity to hear more from one another about why we do what we do each day.”

      Other speakers, November 23, include Scott Schill, producer of Frank vs. God, a full-length feature comedy currently making a splash at film festivals around the country, Danielle Eidenberg-Noppe, education ombudsman at the Washington State Office of Education, and Alice Braverman, the development director at Navos Mental Health Solutions.

      FRED Talk speakers will share stories of gumption, grit and gratitude and allow time for questions. Attendees will hear from all four speakers with a short intermission along the way. Suggested admission is $18 for adults and $12 for seniors and students. Children’s activities will be available, ages 3-11, for $5 a session.

      We are excited to invite community members from West Seattle and beyond to join us for this interesting and engaging afternoon,” Weiss says.

      Proceeds from this event will go toward KHN, West Seattle’s progressive synagogue community.

      5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      “Words, Writers & West Seattle” Presents Presents Children’s Books Author Karen Robbins & Illustrator, Sally Marts.

      “Shoe Print Art: Step Into Drawing” – Sponsored by Southwest Seattle
      Historical Society at Dec. 5th “First Friday” event

      Karen S. Robbins and illustrator Sally Marts will demonstrate the combination of their talents in their presentation of “Shoe Print Art: Step Into Drawing” (Hide and Seek Press, 2013). Robbins is an award-winning author, teacher, and TV celebrity and Marts is a freelance designer/illustrator, both now living in Seattle. Children from across the country were found to do drawings for the book, following steps provided in the book and adding their own creative touches. The children’s photos were used inside the book alongside the diagrams which are said to be “simple enough for almost any age, even adults”. Robbins and Marts will discuss how the resulting creations can be turned into greeting cards, note cards, or even foam refrigerator magnets.

      The public is invited to this FREE presentation on Friday, December 5th
      from 5 pm to 7 pm at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.

      Robbins is a winner of the Benjamin Franklin Gold Medal Award from the Independent Book Publishers Association and has been writing for 28 years, is a book and toy designer, poet, writer of picture books and novelty books with a U.S. patent. She has been an elementary school teacher, has written books for elementary teachers and over 50 magazine articles and appeared as “Miss Karen” on television’s Romper Room Show, is a lecturer/speaker, and a university instructor. She attended the University of Washington and holds a master of education degree from the University of Puget Sound.

      Sally Marts began her career as an artist for a major department store, where she illustrated newspaper ads for many years. She discovered her joy creating for children while designing for a large toy company and has focused her career on the kid’s market since then. She has illustrated books, educational materials, posters, fabrics, and designed toys and packaging. Marts now works from her studio in Seattle.

      Words, Writers & West Seattle’s next FIRST FRIDAY book talk is scheduled for January 2nd and will feature West Seattle author, Christine Brant and her book Red and Grey. Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by calling Dora-Faye Hendricks, chair, “Words, Writers & West Seattle”, by phone at 206-280-9983, or by e-mail at: Dora-Faye@comcast.net.

      5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

      Now in its 5th year of providing free tools, advice and workshop space to the community on a donation basis, the West Seattle Tool Library is holding its second annual fundraiser.

      The fundraiser, which will also serve as Sustainable West Seattle’s annual winter holiday party, will be held Friday, December 5, from 5-9 pm at the SoDo MakerSpace, 1914 Occidental Ave S. All net proceeds will go to the maintenance of tool library operations, as well as potential enhancements such as extended hours and more classes.

      The fundraiser, continuing with last year’s theme of a “Festivus” party, will be a gala with a dinner buffet, beer, wine, soft drinks, music, a raffle, kid activities, and a tool sale. In addition, discounts will be offered on tool library lifetime memberships, and members who have tool library items they’ve been meaning to return will be offered amnesty for any returned tools. No fines and no questions asked!

      Everyone is welcome. No cover charge except for a voluntary suggested donation for food.

      Donations and volunteer help, including day-of setup help for the fundraiser, are still needed.

Food and beverage donations are also welcome. Donors will be recognized at the event.

      Since opening in the summer of 2010, the West Seattle Tool Library has built an inventory of more than 2,500 tools, signed up more than 2,000 members, facilitated over 13,000 loans, offered many classes and served as the home of the Fixer’s Collective and Ask an Expert night. It has been a model to many other tool libraries that have opened in the Puget Sound region and beyond, and received positive media attention as an example of the type of sharing economy projects needed to make the world more sustainable. It is a nonprofit project of Sustainable West Seattle. You can learn more and check out our inventory at www.wstoollibrary.org.

      1:00 pm – 6:00 pm

      The 7th ever Couch Fest Film Festival returns on Saturday, December 6 to its home town of Seattle, while also presenting events on the same day around the world. It’s the world’s largest short film festival, hailed by MovieMaker Magazine as one of the “top 5 coolest short film festivals in the world.”

      Couch Fest Films is a traveling festival of sorts: moviegoers enjoy films shown in Seattle residents’ living rooms, offices…even boats! Neighborhoods with festival locations include Capitol Hill, Greenlake, Columbia City, Madison Park, Wallingford and three locations in West Seattle.
      
      Check out the map here.

      The festival includes over 45 short films, presented in 6 programs throughout the day, beginning on the hour at 1 pm through 6 pm. Sort of like a pub crawl, but for movie watching, attendees can go to as many of the 18 host homes as they’d like, all for one $10 ticket (available online in advance or at the first location they attend).

      The exact host locations will be announced on the festival website (www.couchfestfilms.com) several days in advance of the event. The website will also include maps, driving directions, parking information and transit options for each home.

      Admission to the entire event–including the after party–is just $10, paid at the door of the first home each festivalgoer attends. Tickets can also be purchased online from couchfestfilms.com.

      Where: Seattle Design Center Plaza Commons, 5701 6th Ave South
      Price: Free Entry

      More than 50 local artists will convene at the Seattle Design Center for the 10th Annual Art Under $100 Sale on Saturday, December 6, from 2-9 p.m. The beloved event continues to gather momentum, celebrating its tenth year in a spacious venue in Georgetown/SODO. For holiday shoppers, AU100 offers an unsurpassed opportunity to discover unique, affordable art while supporting local artists.

      “It’s real art, and it’s really affordable– that’s what brings people back year after year,” said Raina Anderson, head of South Park Arts. Art Under $100 began in a residential garage in the South Park neighborhood. Wendy Woldenberg said, “We had about 100 people at our first sale. Each year it grows. Last year we hosted more than 1600 shoppers! People are drawn by the quality of the art, the opportunity to purchase it directly from the artists, and because it’s a party!”

      So what exactly happens at the fun and festive event known as AU100?

      ~ Well, there’s art: Paintings, sculptures, neon, jewelry, textiles, photography, blown glass, cast glass, wood, encaustic, dioramas, woodblock printing, letterpress and more! And nothing priced over $100.

      ~ There’s art made by YOU: Create a handmade treasure with The Makery, a free art lab that runs on reclaimed materials and creativity–the perfect, kid-friendly, family fun activity.

      ~ And yes, even more art: The COCA gallery, also in the Seattle Design Center, will be open and free to the public. Composer Jovino Santos Neto and visual artist Michelle de la Vega will be on hand to present interconnected sculptural forms and sound installations that represent the complexities and strength of nearby communities, like South Park and the Duwamish River Valley area.

      ~ Plus there’s music: Vinyl spinning DJs provide a live soundtrack from above the show.

      ~ Food & drink: Kiss My Grits, Full Tilt Ice Cream, and 314 Pie food trucks will be on site. Beer and wine for the 21+ crowd and fine coffee from Fonte Coffee. Soft drinks, Seattle Chocolates, and Seattle Popcorn will also be available.

      ~ And there’s the infamous AU100 raffle: The Mysterious Bugle Boy and several surprise local celebrities will announce art raffle winners every 20 minutes. Winners pick their prizes from art donated by participating artists.

      Take the free Art Shuttle from Loretta’s Northwesterner (8617 14th Ave. S) to AU100 at the Seattle Design Center (and back again), running the duration of the event, 2-9 pm.

      Purchase the South Park Arts commemorative 10th Anniversary glow-in-the-dark t-shirt or drink cozie. Bring your friends and mingle. Find the perfect gift, and enjoy your holiday shopping. Don’t miss the AU100 party at SDC!

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. The ensemble of characters bring the town of Bedford Falls to the stage, and George Bailey to the fateful Christmas Eve when, as he contemplates ending his life, he realizes the difference he makes in the lives of others.

      This live radio show will be performed at historic Kenyon Hall, one of West Seattle’s favorite venues, December 5, 6, 12 and 13 at 7:30 pm and December 7 and 14 at 3 pm. Bring the family and make this a holiday tradition! Tickets are available online at Brown Paper Tickets <http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/917572>, and at Kenyon Hall on performance days. Prices are $18 for adults and $15 for students & seniors.

      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.

      Reception & Artist Talks: Tuesday December 9th, 6-9 pm

      Big/Little Self
      Tim Cross
      Mugi Takei
      NOVEMBER 20, 2014 – JANUARY 10, 2015

      “My little self can only make artworks to resolve the distance between my imagination and what I can never touch.”

      - Tim Cross

      “I longed for intimacy with and within everything and anything. I wanted to see each and every microscopic structure of being. I wanted to see through my lover’s eyes into his soul. I wanted to see cells breathing in plants. Ultimately, I wanted to see something I couldn’t see. Slowly within me those kinds of urges disappeared and something lighter took over.”

      - Mugi Takei

      Tim Cross’s large scale (in the range of 5- 8 feet) works are created by transferring Laser and Xerox prints to silk using matte medium. Imagery suggestive of 1970’s sci-fi rocket ship parts, water, the surface of the moon, and abstract shapes and patterns reverberate off each other in compositions that function more as paintings than collages.

      Mugi Takei’s watercolor paintings, too, seem to transcend their materials; the bodies of color read more like earth, blood, and water than they do pigments from a
      tube. Girls with swollen bellies lie submerged under oceans and commune with human-sized plant beings covered in thousands of quivering hairs. Both artists make work from a place of acknowledging and questioning the size and shape of their own selves in the face of what they perceive is possible.

      He will be at the café Sunday from 5 pm to 8 pm in his Santa chair, drawing cartoon pictures of elves, snowmen, and reindeer, and he’ll even takes requests! Personalized pictures signed from Santa. This is catered of course to children under the age of 12, but I’m in my 30′s and I get a little teary and always ask for a picture of a kitty under a Christmas tree! We have gotten GREAT responses from Parents that this is great way to take the kids to see Santa. This will be the third year Luna Park has presented the Cartooning Santa.

      There is NO CHARGE, and never a very long line! We play Christmas music, hand out Christmas cookies, and the staff dresses up in their red and green best.

We have the Winter Warmer Ale Ebenezer, for 3$ a pint from 5-8, as well as Eggnog and Peppermint milkshakes, lattes and fresh squeezed Hot apple Cider.

      7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

      Local Book Launch and Fundraiser for local author Sarah Fox at the Skylark Skylark Cafe and Club, Seattle, WA, December 15, 2014, 7 pm. We invite the Seattle community to join us on Monday, December 15th at 7 pm at the Skylark in West Seattle for a reading and Q&A with Sarah, appetizers, and a silent auction and dessert grab featuring special flavors by Full Tilt Ice Cream. Tickets are $20 each and are available through Eventbrite. Signed copies of the book are available for an additional cost.

      Local Historian and author Sarah Fox is asking for your help. Her recently­published book, Downwind: A People’s History of the Nuclear West is the culmination of a ten year research project, yet some of the most important work­ spreading the word about the book­ still remains. As a first­-time author published through a university press, she received no advance and no institutional support for a book tour. Royalties are 1% (15% for ebooks), paid out once a year. All book events and travel expenses come out of Sarah’s personal funds, and she must often take time off work to commit to these events.

      Downwind explores the human and environmental cost of nuclear testing and uranium extraction in the American West through the stories of “downwinders,” the residents of the Great Basin region affected by radiological pollution. These citizens tell of insidious food and water contamination, communities ravaged by
      cancer epidemics, farmers and ranchers economically ruined by crop failures and massive livestock die­offs, and miners working in dangerous conditions without proper safety equipment while the government surreptitiously studied the effects of radiation on humans.

      In chilling detail, Downwind brings to light the experiences and concerns of groups whose voices have been silenced and marginalized for decades in the name of patriotism and national security, tracing the evolution of a citizen activist movement that eventually challenged the federal government and powerful military and energy industries.

      With the renewed boom in mining in the American West, Fox’s look at this hidden history, unearthed from years of field interviews, archival research, and epidemiological studies, is a must­read for every American concerned about the fate of our western lands and communities.

      We invite the Seattle community to join us on Monday, December 15th at 7 pm at the Skylark in West Seattle for a reading and Q&A with Sarah, appetizers, and a silent auction and dessert grab featuring special flavors by Full Tilt Ice Cream. Tickets are $20 each and are available through Eventbrite. Signed copies of the book are available for an additional cost. The Skylark is located at 3803
      Delridge Way SW, Seattle, WA 98106.

      For the most part, downwinder stories have been ignored and left out of our collective history. Sarah’s book tour will focus on bringing the voices of downwinders to the fore. With your help, we can raise enough funds at this event to send Sarah into areas heavily impacted by nuclear activities and continue to create awareness for these issues which range from policy to public health and the
      environment. Your support is irreplaceable, and appreciated beyond measure, not only by Sarah, but by affected communities. We hope you can show your support by turning out for this amazing event! For more information, contact Ann Magyar
      at (206) 300­-3587. To learn more about the book, visit www.downwindhistory.com.

      About The Whale Trail
      The Whale Trail (www.thewhaletrail.org) is a series of sites around the region where the public may view orcas and other marine mammals from shore. Our mission is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of whales and our marine environment by establishing a network of viewing sites along the whales’ trails through the Salish Sea and the coastal waters of the Pacific Northwest.

      Our goals are to increase awareness that our marine waters are home to orcas and other species; connect visitors to orcas, other marine wildlife and their habitat; inspire stewardship and build community; promote land-based whale watching. Our over-arching goal is to ensure the southern resident orcas do not go extinct.

      The Whale Trail provides simple, powerful, and long-lasting reminders to visitors and residents alike that orcas and other whales live in our waters. Through our current sites and signs, including two on every Washington State ferry, we reach more than 22 million people each year. Our near-term goals are to add a site in every coastal county in Washington, and around Vancouver Island, throughout the orcas’ range. Together, we will turn the tide for the whales!

      The Whale Trail is led by a core team of partners including NOAA Fisheries, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Seattle Aquarium, the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, and the Whale Museum. Donna Sandstrom is the Founder and Executive Director. The Whale Trail is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, registered in Washington State.

      Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor) presents live music featuring Latin and jazz favorites with Sundae + Mr. Goessl.

      Sundae + Mr. Goessl is a new collaboration between resident Seattle, WA musicians Jason Goessl and Kate Voss. The duo embodies a spirit reminiscent of 1930s pop; repackaging classics with nuanced stylistic detours, ultimately imparting a ‘fresh’ vintage patina to the songs. Voss’s sultry and honey-imbued vocals mixed with Goessl’s impossibly layered guitar work comfortably ebbs and flows while transcending the definition of ‘pop’.

      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.

We will serve Christmas cookies (probably not homemade) and hot chocolate and cider afterwards. Remember to wear lights to see the sidewalks and reflective gear so that cars can see you. We think battery operated christmas light strands do quite nicely for this purpose. Merry Christmas!!

      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.

      Saturday, December 27th, 7:30 pm at Kenyon Hall:

      Breakin’ Up Christmas Concert and Square Dance
      featuring Erynn Marshall & Carl Jones from Galax, VA, with local support from Charmaine Slaven, Tony Mates, Catherine Alexander!

      There is a southern Appalachian tradition during the 12 days between December 25 and “Old Christmas” (January 5th) of having house parties and dances. Rugs are rolled back and the music and dancing continue in the wee hours, with revelers sometimes going house-to-house. More info about the tradition of “breaking up Christmas” in this article out of Galax, VA.

      We’re fortunate to be having masters of the old time music tradition, Carl Jones and Erynn Marshall, who live in Galax, Virginia will be passing through town during that time. Carl and Erynn will perform a concert before the dance, then will be joined by Tony Mates on bass, Catherine Alexander on guitar, and Charmaine Slaven who will teach and call the dances! No experience needed!

      No table seats for this show. General admission $10; seniors and students $8.
      $4 for children 12 and under.

      To make a reservation, please e-mail kenyonhall@earthlink.net with your request. You’ll receive an e-mail confirming your reservation. For complete program information, please visit www.kenyonhall.org.

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.

PLEASE NOTE, in most cases, this is what we were told by phone *before Christmas* (if a restaurant with holiday hours is not listed, it’s usually because they didn’t answer or call us back).

    2. West Seattle Polar Bear Swim 2015 at Alki
      10:00 am – 11:00 am

      This starts from the sandy section of Alki, right across from Duke’s (58th/Alki) on January 1st, 2015. From longtime organizer Mark Ufkes:

      West Seattle Polar Bear Swim is on!

      2015, The year of the Sheep – a symbol pf peace, harmony, co-existence, and tranquility. A nurturing year, which the world can always use more of.

      The annual West Seattle Polar Bear swim starts at 10 am sharp on January 1 each year. Arrive a few minutes early.

      We line up all along the beach, have a count down, and at 10 am sharp, we hold hands and run into the water together. Each year, the swim gets bigger. Over 500 swimmers fanned out in a long line along the beach and joined us last year. It is a great way to wash away the complexities of the previous year, and celebrate the unlimited potential that awaits each of us in the new year. Year after year, Polar Bear swimmers declare that this ritual creates a sense of renewal, and helps make the new year be stronger and more positive.

      Traditionally, Duke’s restaurant generously provides free clam chowder and local families bring hot chocolate for the crowd. Afterwards, Alki beach is full of hundreds of smiling swimmers and their families and friends. Come join the fun. Do the West Seattle Polar Bear swim. You will have a great time!
