    9. Tuesday Tune-up: Support Ladybug House @ Salty’s on Alki Seafood Restaurant
      6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

      Party for a cause! Help raise funds for Ladybug House at Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor) Tuesday April 21st, 6:30 to 8:30 pm.

      Ladybug House is in the non-profit spotlight at Salty’s on Alki, April 21, for our Tuesday Tune-Up fundraiser with live tunes by Piano-man and Emcee Victor Janusz with Robertson Witmer on accordion-clarinet. You’re invited to join us! Enter a raffle for a chance to win a gift basket from Ladybug House! Here’s why you need to help:

      As a nonprofit, the goal of Ladybug House is to build and operate a freestanding community-based Palliative Care Home based in Seattle. They offer free end-of-life care to children and young adults with life-limiting illnesses and support for their families in a homelike setting. An interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals, support staff and volunteers, they provide 24/7 care and support.

      Founder Suzanne Gwynn, a registered nurse in Seattle, worked intensely with children and young adults and their families in oncology and hospice care for over 30 years. Watching families live with the unimaginable day after day compelled her to dream of a palliative care home; a safe place for them to land. She calls this place Ladybug House. They need your support. Participate by becoming a partner or volunteer or simply join us at Salty’s on Alki Beach on Tuesday, April 21. Suzanne would love to share her story with you.

      Join us from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. No Cover Charge: There is no cover charge but donations to Ladybug House are gratefully accepted. Enjoy live music with Emcee and Piano-man Victor Janusz. Come early for Salty’s extended Happy Hour Menu from 3:00 to 7:30 p.m. or stay for Late Night Happy Hour 9:00 to 10:00 p.m. (happy hour usually runs 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 to 10:00 p.m. daily).

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.”

      6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

      On Wednesday April 22, Earth Day, Wednesday, at 6:30-8:00 pm
      Explorer West Middle School (WSB sponsor), will present a community talk by NASA/JPL (Jet Propulsion Lab) Solar System Ambassador, Dr. Ron Hobbs.

      Dr. Hobbs’ presentation, entitled “Exploring Strange New Worlds; A Space Exploration Update”, will introduce exciting developments in space exploration. This talk is aimed to inspire upper elementary and middle school students and their families. Admission is free of charge. An RSVP is requested by email at events@explorer-west.org.

      In this special Earth Day Explorer presentation, Dr. Hobbs will talk about the new frontiers including the latest discoveries in comets, dwarf planets, and the Mars rover. With the goal of igniting enthusiasm and imagination of the new frontiers that lie in outer space, Dr. Hobbs will also illustrate the ways that the discoveries from these missions will impact our life on earth.

      Dr. Ron Hobbs has delivered more than 200 presentations to K-12 classrooms, retirement centers, and professional associations since becoming a Solar System Ambassador for NASA/JPL in 2011. He is currently a naturopathic physician and an instructor for Bellevue College’s TELOS continuing education program. Dr. Hobbs is committed to sharing the wonders of nature from a scientific context. As a lifelong learner, he believes that the wonder of new understanding is a key to a long and fulfilling life. “For kids, and I include myself in that, there’s no distinction between reality and science fiction. Science fiction is just reality before it happens,” he explains. “This is family entertainment as it really should be. That’s the great thing about the Solar Systems Ambassador program. It’s people from the community sharing with their neighbors what our tax dollars get spent on.”

      NASA/JPL The Solar System Ambassadors Program is a public outreach program designed to work with motivated volunteers across the nation. These volunteers communicate the excitement of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab space exploration missions and information about recent discoveries to people in their local communities. For 2015, there are 628 bringing the excitement of space to the public. Ambassadors are space enthusiasts from various walks of life who are interested in providing greater service and inspiration to the community at large.

      Explorer West is an independent Middle School founded in 1996. It is located in southwest Seattle in the White Center area. Explorer West offers rigorous academics in a small, individualized and supportive environment so that students prosper at the high schools of their choice.

      From West Seattle Democratic Women:

      LETTER FROM CHAIR REGARDING SPECIAL EVENING PROGRAM FOR APRIL 23RD!! Come one; come all! Can there be anything better than laughing, especially when you want to cry?

      The West Seattle Democratic Women are inviting our members and friends to join in the fun the evening of April 23rd. It’s a night of political parody, featuring the stylings of the “Kook Brothers!” You are invited to join in with our open mike-style cabaret with your very own songs, poems, revues – your imagination is the only limit to your parodies with a political twist.
      Skewer a senator, roast a republican, plaudit a pundit, deride a disappointing Democrat, praise a progressive, lambaste a legislator or jest a judge (SCOTUS anyone?). Think The Capitol Steppes or Mark Russell or Prairie Home Companion. And we can guarantee you a very passionate, supportive and friendly audience (we’ll love you)!

      Vital details regarding date, time of the meeting:

      Thursday, April 23, at 6:00 pm
      West Seattle Golf Course Club House
      Dinner and show – $30, no-host bar available
      RSVP to Ann Martin for dinner and show by April 19
      Be a part of the show, let Rachel know by April 15

      We realize that some of you may not wish to perform at all, but just want to watch OR maybe you want to sing but have no idea what to write about OR perhaps you are wicked clever with your writing skills but don’t want to sing! Well, fear not, we can accommodate all of you, and most important, we want you to come and join in the fun, because being an audience member is a very important job, too–we need you to laugh and cheer and make some noise! We are seeking your ideas and input, so if you would either like to sing or write a song or poem or prose, please contact Vice-Chair Rachel Glass at

      werdachel@aol.com letting her know what you want to do, so that we can start a list of who is doing what.

      We are giving you plenty of advanced notice so you can start penning your parody now. We will check with our keyboardist to see if they can provide some backup for you. Also, writers should send your songs digitally to Rachel as well, making sure you have your parody song title at the top of the page and the song it is to the tune of, and then your lyrics.
      Can’t sing a lick – that’s okay too. Recite your poem or prose and bring on the sarcasm.

      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.

    10. Chapel naming and celebration mass @ Providence Mount St. Vincent
      11:00 am – 12:00 pm

      Providence Mount St. Vincent invites the public to attend a mass to celebrate the naming of its chapel in honor of William Pigott’s visionary commitment, legacy of faith, service and sacrificial giving. The mass will begin at 11 am on April 26, 2015 in the chapel at Providence Mount St. Vincent, 4831 35th Ave. SW, Seattle. The Very Reverend Paul Magnano will preside.

      The event will honor William Pigott and Ann P. Wyckoff, long-time supporters of Providence Mount St. Vincent. “It’s an honor to continue my grandfather’s legacy,” Wyckoff said about naming the William Pigott Chapel in honor of her grandfather. In 1924, Pigott and five other lead donors partnered with the Sisters of Providence to raise the needed funds to build St. Vincent Home for the Aged, today called Providence Mount St. Vincent. Together they held the vision that a just society must plan for and provide care for its elders. The building was dedicated on April 26, 1924.

      The mass will include a performance of an original score by Grammy-winning film, television and symphony composer Mateo Messina, who throughout his life has visited many Sisters of Providence and “The Mount” while his mother worked there, and where she receives care today. In gratitude, Messina joins in honoring William Pigott and Ann Wyckoff.

      To RSVP or for information, call 206-938-6194 or e-mail ann.martin@providence.org.

      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.

      These gals will have you Eating Your… Cornflakes!

      Style ’15 Fashion Show Benefit

      Thursday, April 30th, 2015 7:00 pm
      Showbox SODO | Ages 21 & Over

      On April 30th, two dozen breast cancer survivors will show their strength as they model the newest spring trends during Style ’15, Northwest Hope & Healing’s 13th Annual Fashion Show Benefit. The women will be accompanied by male models, men who have a close tie to the cause and have been touched in some way by breast cancer.

      Proceeds from the event will benefit the Northwest Hope & Healing (NWHH) Patient Assistance Fund in an effort to offer financial assistance to women battling breast cancer in the Puget Sound area. Over the last 15 years, the Northwest Hope & Healing Patient Assistance fund has awarded grants to more than 2,200 women to help them get through breast cancer, and the annual fashion show has raised over $900,000 over the past twelve years, with a 2015 fundraising goal of $150,000. Doors open for the show at 7 pm and will be held at the Showbox SODO, 1700 1st Ave S, Seattle WA 98134.

      For more information or to purchase tickets visit: http://www.nwhopeandhealing.org/events.html

      This moving evening is filled with heartfelt camaraderie and emotional connections between survivors and supporters alike and will include an overview of NWHH’s Healing Programs, three prize drawings, the chance to make donations to fund-a-need (which provides essentials like groceries, gas, childcare or rent), followed by a runway fashion show featuring outfits from some of the hottest boutiques in the Seattle area including: Carmilia’s, Coastal Surf Boutique, West Seattle Runner, Lika Love, Canopy Blue, 3 Wishes, and hair design by stylists from Ola Salon. This event is sponsored and supported by funding from Filament Advisors, Genentech and the Swedish Cancer Institute.

      Kristina Dahl, diagnosed in 2005, says “When I was diagnosed with cancer, my daughter was two years old. While I underwent treatment, it took a village of friends and family to keep me afloat, helping with childcare, meals, and so much more. Every woman deserves and needs that kind of support. Fighting cancer was hard enough, a woman going through it shouldn’t have to do it alone.” Shari Sewell, Executive Director of NWHH says “NWHH programs are significant because we step in to pay the rent and to keep food on the table, as women fight for their lives.”

      Linda Sabee, proprietor of Carmilia’s in West Seattle has been involved with the event since its inception and will once again return for the 13th consecutive year. Ticket prices range from $50 to $1,000. For more information or to purchase tickets visit: http://www.nwhopeandhealing.org/events.html

      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!

      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.

      Drinking Liberally gives like-minded, left-leaning individuals a place to talk politics. It’s an informal setting for folks to discuss and learn from their peers while hanging out in a casual environment. Here you can meet elected officials, candidates and other like-minded folks to share the bond of common ground. Some of us decide to eat dinner, while others just enjoy a glass of wine, beer or a nonalcoholic drink such as soda or tea.

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.”

    13. 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

      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.

      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.

      These gals will have you Eating Your… Cornflakes!
