    7. Bob’s Bowl-A-Rama fundraiser @ West Seattle Bowl
      7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

      From Ingrid at Georgetown Brewing Company:

      The event is called Bob’s Bowl-A-Rama, and it is the final event of our fundraising for Ronald McDonald House Charities for 2014.

      Charles “Bob” Hirsch was the inspiration for our beer, Bob’s Brown Ale. Manny, one of Georgetown Brewing Co.’s founders, met Bob when he was a counselor at Camp Goodtimes and Bob was a camper. Bob fought cancer for half of his life, and when he passed away, the company decided to brew a beer in his honor and donate all of the proceeds. Bob’s mom chose RMHC as the recipient charity for our donation saying “They put us up for treatment every time we came in from Alaska.” For the past 9 years, we’ve released Bob’s Brown Ale on Bob’s birthday, May 14th, and have raised over $400,000 to date. Even if folks can’t buy a lane, even if they just come out for a pint of Bob’s Brown Ale and buy a raffle ticket, that would be great.

      Bob’s Bowl-A-Rama starts at 7 pm Thursday August 28th at West Seattle Bowl and if you’re interested in a lane, sign up ASAP – here’s all the info.

      From Principal Julie Breidenbach at Fairmount Park Elementary:

      “The teachers are ready to meet their students at the Open House on Tuesday. The ribbon cutting event will be out in the courtyard at 2:45 with classrooms open for visitation from 3:00­ ‐ 5:00. Please do not come earlier that day as the upper area of the building will be closed so that teachers can finish last minute planning and setup.

      Parking for the Open House is going to be challenging. Please walk if you are able to. It will be less stressful for your entire family to park 4 – 5 blocks away and have a peaceful walk to the school grounds.”

      7:00 pm – 9:00 pm


      West Seattle Meaningful Movies and the Southwest Seattle Historical Society presents:
      Princess Angeline

      Princess Angeline is a documentary by award-winning Seattle filmmakers Sandy and Yasu Osawa. They will both be attending this screening.

      Princess Angeline was the daughter of Chief Seattle. She was one of the few Duwamish people left in Seattle by the 1890s, only thirty-five years after the peace treaty was signed guaranteeing that land would be reserved for the Duwamish people (which never happened).

      The Duwamish Tribe was recognized at the end of the Clinton administration, only to have that recognition overturned by the incoming Bush administration. With historical photographs, interviews, and narration, this documentary explores the story of the Duwamish people and their unrecognized tribal status. The beautiful Duwamish Longhouse is here in West Seattle—on West Marginal Way, close to the Duwamish River. Come learn about and consider taking action on behalf of Seattle’s First People.

      The movie is 53 minutes long. There will be a discussion with the filmmakers following the movie.

      Saturday, September 6, at 7:00 pm
      at High Point Neighborhood House
      (Bus numbers 21 and 128)
      (come at 6:30, for refreshments and to meet your neighbors)

      6:00 pm – 9:30 pm

      From Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor):

      You’ve tossed down a few raw oysters from Taylor Shellfish and paired them with a great oyster wine — maybe the Firesteed Pinot Gris or Alexandria Nicole’s Albariño — out on Salty’s private-dining deck with a view of Seattle’s skyline across Elliott Bay. Now you’re ready to meet your chefs and get to work! This is Cooking with Class 2014, Tuesday, September 9, 6:00 to 9:30 pm. at Salty’s on Alki Beach in West Seattle.

      Participants choose three chefs and interact with them, actually making the dishes and learning their techniques.

      * 22 top Northwest chefs provide hands-on training to small groups of 8.
      * Each chef trains three groups of people for 30 minutes each.
      * Wineries pair their wines with the chefs’ food.
      * Live auction and door prizes with your hosts John Curley and Chef Jeremy McLachlan of Salty’s Seafood Grills.

      You might learn how to create a broth of spicy tomato and white wine to accent local clams (Canyon River Ranch), pair mango and prawns (Far-Eats), sear scallops in black pepper and vanilla brine (Andaluca) or soft poach an egg for your lobster bisque (Seastar Seattle). You get to choose — there are 22 local, amazing chefs who want to share their cooking tips and ideas on food. Throughout the evening, you work with three chefs in separate, small groups, putting the dish together, eating what you create and pairing it with wine donated/paired by wineries. That lobster bisque should go nicely with the 2012 Chateau Ste. Michelle Cold Creek Chardonnay; spot prawns with fresh corn polenta (Salish Lodge & Spa) will be a delight with Sparkman’s 2012 Apparition blend of Roussane, Grenache Blanc and Marsanne. Purple’s Spanish-style mussels will be set off perfectly with Dusted Valley’s 2012 Cabernet Franc.

      Date: Tuesday, September 9th
      Time: 6:00 to 9:30 pm
      Cost: $150 per person (must be 21 or older)
      Location: Salty’s on Alki Duwamish Room (Private Dining Downstairs)

      You’ll need to head to the website at seattledining.com/cwc to look over the chefs and their dishes, the wine pairings and see what you’d like to learn this year. Included you will find Salty’s on Alki Executive Chef Paolo Carey-DiGregorio, Alki Pastry Chef Jena Sorbera and Redondo Executive Chef Gabriel Cabrera. Sign up online, pay through PayPal, and you’ll be ready to go. We’ll send you a confirmation and you’ll see the auction book in advance to plan your strategy. It’s an evening you won’t want to miss.

      The cost of your entry tickets, raffle tickets and auction purchases helps others: the residents and participants of Providence ElderPlace and Providence Heritage House at the Market. These programs care for frail, low-income seniors, and the proceeds from Cooking with Class help fill in the gaps, making lives more comfortable and enjoyable. We can all appreciate what it must feel like to outlive your savings or family members. These programs provide care, socialization and, very importantly, the right to continue making your own decisions and direct your life to the best of your ability.

      Leader: Ken Shaw

      In addition to the common old growth trees, there are plenty of mature western yews (Taxus brevifolia). You can find a 2003 plant list here.

      Interesting history of the park here.

      Elevation gain 150 feet.

      Where to meet: Admiral Way & SW Stevens at the kiosk.

This important ecological resource spans nearly 500 acres on the eastern slopes of West Seattle and includes 182 acres of public park land. Since 2003, Nature Consortium has brought volunteers and community members together to help restore habitat in the forest by removing invasive weeds, amending soil, addressing erosion issues, and planting new native trees and shrubs.

    6. Camp Long Mountain Fest
      11:00 am – 5:00 pm

      Seattle Parks and Recreation invites you and your family to celebrate Camp Long Mountain Fest and the 75th anniversary of Schurman Rock from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on Sunday, September 14th, 2014.

      Camp Long Mountain Fest celebrates Seattle’s mountain climbing history and community. Visitors can challenge themselves on the high ropes course and try climbing and rappelling on Schurman Rock (with waivers). There will be mountain games and interactive workshops for people of all ages and abilities and prizes will be awarded. Jim Whittaker, the first American to climb Mount Everest, is scheduled to attend.

      All events are free and take place at Camp Long (5200 35th Ave. SW).

      Schurman Rock was constructed between 1938 and 1939 by the Work Progress Administration, and is believed to be the first man-made climbing structure in America. It was originally named Monitor Rock because climbing instructors could monitor their students from all sides of the structure. In 1957, it was renamed to honor Clark Schurman who designed it.

      Schurman, known as “The Chief,” was the chief climbing guide on Mount Rainier from 1938 to 1941. As a climber, he sketched and painted his journeys into a book published by The Mountaineers in 1939. Schurman thought it was important for novice climbers to have a practice rock. Schurman Rock stands as a legacy to his vision.

      For more information about Camp Long Mountain Fest, please call 206-423-3460 or visit seattle.gov/environment/rock.htm. Camp Long Mountain Fest is sponsored by Seattle Parks and Recreation, the Associated Recreation Council, O2 Outdoor Opportunities and Mountain Madness.

To this day it endures as opera’s ultimate cautionary tale about the human cost of unbridled lust. Featuring varied, evocative, and absolutely glorious music from overture to epilogue, a dynamic set of distinctively drawn characters, and a shocking, unforgettable finale, “the Don” stands apart as Mozart’s boldest masterpiece.

      To RSVP and register to attend, click here.

      Have you heard of the International Coastal Cleanup? It happens every year in September and is the largest global volunteer day in service to our lakes, oceans, and rivers. Each year, approximately 600,000 people worldwide dedicate time to cleaning up their local waterways. The catch is that they record every single piece of trash collected! The results are then sent to the Ocean Conservancy and published into an annual report to give us an idea of exactly what is floating around in our oceans (hint: the most prevalent item is small, plastic, and brown and white in color).

      Last year, over 12 million pounds of trash were collected. Items ranged from a wedding dress to an abandoned toilet to plastic food wrappers and bags. What will be found this year?

      Join us for one of our biggest cleanups of the year at Alki Beach! Coffee and donuts will be provided by Bank of America to keep you energized!

      West Duwamish Greenbelt
      (accessible via the south parking lot at South Seattle College, or at the trail head at 14th Ave SW & SW Holly St)

      Did You Know?

      Located in the Delridge area of West Seattle, The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest remaining forest in the city of Seattle at over 500 acres. That means you don’t have to travel outside of the city to enjoy the great outdoors.

      The West Duwamish Greenbelt provides many benefits for the environment and the community. Bald eagles, hawks, foxes, salamander, and other local wildlife rely on the habitat this greenbelt provides.

      The plants in the forest help to reduce storm water runoff, filter pollutants in the water, and reduce erosion. As these plants absorb carbon dioxide and other pollutants from the air, they also improve air quality and help reduce the effects of global warming.

      And the best part? You don’t have to travel out of the city to experience the great outdoors. Urban forests like the West Duwamish Greenbelt are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

      Before becoming a children’s book writer, Instructor Kim Baker worked as a children’s crisis counselor and elementary school teacher. Her middle grade novel debut, PICKLE (Roaring Brook Press/Macmillan Children’s Publishing) was one of the New York Public Library’s Best Books for Reading and Sharing, a finalist for the 2013 Children’s Choice Awards, and the recipient of the 2013 Crystal Kite West award from the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).

    3. Words, Writers & West Seattle: Poet Susan Rich @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
      5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      The public is invited to this FREE series from 5–7 pm at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.
      Poet and writer Susan Rich is featured on October 3rd, 2014:

      Words, Writers & West Seattle Presents Poet/Writer Susan Rich recently published “Cloud Pharmacy” and was featured at Sept. 5th First Friday event sponsored by Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

      Susan Rich’s “Cloud Pharmacy” is an “intelligent and observant collection” of poems, some inspired by the nineteenth-century photographer Hannah Maynard. She explores the passions of romantic love and fire, memory, needs, self-regard and grief in this work. As Rich herself says,”the interior world opens/lightly….but it doesn’t stay there.” The result is wonderfully strange and unsettling.

      The public is invited to this FREE series from 5–7 pm at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.

      Described as a “deep, mindful thinker and a lover of language,” Rich is the author of several essays and of four collections of poetry: Cloud Pharmacy, The Alchemist’s Kitchen, named a finalist for the Foreword Prize and the Washington State Book Award, Cures Include Travel, and The Cartographer’s Tongue, winner of the PEN USA Award for Poetry. She will discuss her process of writing based on historical figures.

      Rich’s poems have appeared in many national and international journals including the Harvard Review, Poetry Ireland Review, and TriQuarterly. Along with Jared Hawkley and Brian Turner, Susan is the co-editor of The Strangest of Theatres: Poets Crossing borders, a selection of themed travel essays for poets who want to travel, it was published by McSweeney’s and the Poetry Foundation in 2013.

    7. ‘Wine Tasting’ fundraiser for Furry Faces Foundation @ Ola Salon
      3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

      Save the date – October 5th from 3-6 pm! From Teri Ensley at Furry Faces Foundation:

      It’s a Wine Tasting! Here’s how it works:
      Each person brings a bottle of red or white wine. Upon arrival it is wrapped in foil and assigned a number, with the ‘type of wine’ written on it, e.g., Merlot (you need to remember the number of your bottle). Reds and whites are separated onto different tables. You walk about with your (F3 provided) wine glass, mingling with really cool people, pouring your own tastes. Write your thoughts on your (F3 provided) tasting card.

      At the end of the evening, you vote for your favorite wine of the evening and turn it in. We tally the votes. There will be a gift card prize for the #1 Red and the #1 White. There will be some nibbles and noshes, however, you may want to eat a good lunch ahead of time because if say 50 people attend…that’s 50 bottles of wine to taste!

      This event is to help raise the funds for Furry Faces Foundation’s 501(c)3* $800.00 application fee. We will have a suggested donation amount at our check in table…something reasonable like $10ish. It’s only suggested; not required to attend. The donation jar will not be on the check in table–it’ll be in some other, super cool place, so there is no pressure.

      * We are a Washington State Charity/non-profit and have decided to apply for our 501 (c) 3 status.

    3. Two Beers Brewing Company & Seattle Cider Company tasting event @ Metropolitan Market
      4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

      Stop in at Metropolitan Market/Admiral (WSB sponsor) Friday October 17th, 4–6:00 pm:

      Seattle is lucky to be home to more than a fair share of breweries, but far fewer cideries forge spots in the landscape. Seattle Cider Company is owned and operated by the folks behind the popular Two Beers Brewing Company.

      The first cidery since Prohibition in these parts, they scour the state for the best apples for each variety they make. In order to get the best flavor, they pick apples at the peak of freshness, press them, and hold the juice in barrels until it’s time to blend for target taste. The zero bris dry cider boasts an ephemeral “on and off the palate” flavor, which Dan Armerding (tasting room manager) says adds to its ability to go with “just about anything, especially foods like asparagus and fish.”

      Their fall seasonal flavor, Pumpkin Spice, is definitely worth a second sip. With the inclusion of pumpkin in the pressing, co-owner Mark Satterly says they aimed for “full-on pumpkin flavor, but with an apple backbone,” keeping it more in the pleasing realm of a pie-spiced cider. The clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice flavors bring great complexity without a lot of sweetness.

      Stop in to meet your favorite brewers while you sip their beers and nosh on snacks.*

      * To join us for a complimentary tasting, you must be at least 21 and provide valid identification upon your onetime entry (no exceptions). Limited to food, four servings of wine or beer, and space available. Please note: final pour will be 15 minutes before the tasting is closed to ensure that you will have time to taste all the offerings.
