In case you’re wondering what Pundamonium entails…​One by one,​ ​10 contestants have two minutes each to make puns based on prompts they have received ahead of time. Each contestant is immediately judged by five members of the audience, who have been selected before the show to be judges. They rank each punner on a scale of 1 to 10, often with hilariously long decimals and other commentary.

Then they do it again, only this time contestants get their prompts on stage and only have 30 seconds to think and another two minutes to make puns.

The top four contestants go head to head in a final pun-off.

The winner this month will receive a $50 gift certificate for The Skylark, redeemable immediately! ​

Becky’s New Car @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Feb 24 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Twelfth Night Productions is proud to present BECKY’S NEW CAR.

Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn’t dare.

BECKY’S NEW CAR is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.

Playing at. Tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for students and seniors.

This production will be performed at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, February 24 and 25, March 3 and 4 at 7:30 and February 26 and March 5 at 3:00. Tickets are available online at Brown Paper Tickets, and at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, an hour before the show on performance days. Prices are $20 for adults and $18 for students & seniors. http://www.twelfthnightproductions.org/

Ronny Cox performs @ Kenyon Hall
Feb 24 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

We’re delighted to welcome back the remarkable artist to Kenyon. Ronny has been featured in countless movies and television shows. Remembered best as the moral-minded and ill-fated Drew who instigates the legendary “Dueling Banjos” sequence with a mountain boy in Deliverance (1972), he was Captain Jellico in Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the bad guy in Robocop.

We can all name popular actors who play music as a sideline. Ronny Cox is not one of those actors. When you hear him sing the songs he’s written—deeply personal songs—you don’t think, “There’s an actor who also sings.” You forget that familiar face and focus on the poetry that lays his life bare, that draws his audience inexorably in, so that you feel what he’s feeling.

Tickets for Ronny Cox are $20 general and $18 seniors and students. No table seats for this performance. For more information, please visit ronnycox.com.

To make a reservation, please e-mail kenyonhall@earthlink.net. You’ll receive an e-mail confirming your reservation.

Join Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures for Natural Community Service and Admiration Stroll in Fauntleroy Park. We will meet at the entrance on SW Barton St by SW Henderson St, between 40th Av SW & 41st Av SW.

Why not join your local human community, as we take a stroll in our local natural community, and admire her beauty, her fascinating intricacy, and learn Stewart’s strategies, developed over the last 20 years, to get the most mileage in helping Mother Nature heal from the abuses incurred in a bad relationship with her children, Able, Cain and David? While we learn the strategies, we’ll control a few wily weeds that are encroaching on declining plant community members. This session will be at our local treasure of nature, Fauntleroy Park, where the first of over-controlling Able’s creature creations, the domesticated dog, is trampling the Trilliums, while salamanders, whose cover has been blown, struggle to safely sneak around. No fee is required, but I am building a community of support for me, my work, and for a growing movement. That support can take any helpful form.

Pre-registration is not required, but it would help me estimate the crowd to prepare for. If no one pre-registers I may not show up. To pre-register e-mail ecostewart@gmail.com or phone (land only right now) 206 932-7225

When Annie tries to make good on her promise to her friends, she is forced to take a good look at the world that surrounds her. She befriends Malik, who promises a bright future, and Keera, whose evangelical leanings inspire Annie in a way her young parents have not been able to do. In the end Annie’s choices propel her onto an irreversible path in this story that combines wit, poetry, and hope.

Words, Writers & West Seattle: Enduring Conviction – Fred Korematsu and His Quest for Justice @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
Mar 3 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Professor Lorraine Bannai presents her new book, “Enduring Conviction – Fred Korematsu and His Quest for Justice” Friday, March 3rd at Barnes & Noble/Westwood for “Words, Writers & West Seattle”

Knowing that the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II was a fundamental denial of basic human rights, a young attorney, Lori Bannai, helped vindicate a Japanese American man who resisted F.D.R.’s Executive Order. She has now written a book about him, his wartime case, and how, decades later, he won a measure of justice for himself and the Japanese American community – Enduring Conviction: Fred Korematsu and His Quest for Justice (published by University of Washington Press (2015)).

Bannai combines insider knowledge of the case with extensive archival research, personal letters, and interviews with Korematsu, his family, and close friends. She uncovered the inspiring story of a humble, soft-spoken man who fought tirelessly against human rights abuses long after he was exonerated.

The Southwest Seattle Historical Society sponsors this free book-talk series on the ‘First Friday’ of each month. Lori’s presentation will take place at 5 pm, on Friday, March 3rd, 2017, at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.

After refusing to leave for incarceration when ordered, Korematsu was eventually arrested and convicted of a federal crime before being sent to the internment camp at Topaz, Utah. He appealed his conviction to the Supreme Court, which, in one of the most infamous cases in American legal history, upheld the wartime orders. Forty years later, Bannai was part of a team of young attorneys who reopened Korematsu’s case and cleared his conviction based on proof that the government suppressed, altered, and destroyed material evidence while prosecuting Korematsu during WWII. In 1998, President Bill Clinton awarded Korematsu the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Lori Bannai now the Director of the Fred T. Korematsu Center for Law and Equality and a Professor of Lawyering Skills at Seattle University School of Law. Her parents and their families were incarcerated in a camp in World War II. She has lived in West Seattle for 24 years and has raised her two children there.

“Words, Writers & West Seattle’s” next book-talk is scheduled for April 7th and will feature Judy Bentley and her book, “Hiking Washington’s History”, focusing on areas around the Duwamish River. For videos on these and other authors’ presentations, visit: www.loghousemuseum.info/events/words-writers-and-west-seattle. Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by contacting Dora-Faye Hendricks, Chair, “Words, Writers & West Seattle” by phone at 206-280-9983 or by e-mail at Dora-Faye@comcast.net.

This beginner’s class is a two-part series that will uncover the core processes behind 3D printing and introduce you to the basic concepts behind the 3D modeling tools of the Rhino software. You will learn computer-aided design (CAD) concepts, including NURBS curves, point clouds and polygon meshes. We’ll help you navigate the pitfalls of 3D design. You will be armed with approaches to 3D modeling to help you make your own small creation and turn your idea into reality. You will finish designing your 3D model and upload it to Intentional3D for printing.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is required. Please call the High Point Library (206-684-7454) to reserve your seat.

Upon completion of both parts, the library will provide a coupon that covers up to $25 for the cost of printing your 3D model. 3D print jobs will be sent to Intentional3D for printing and will be mailed to participants.

Class size is limited to 16 participants.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is required. Register in person or call 206-733-9125.

Mar 4 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Live at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor) on Saturday March 4th, 7–9 pm:

Grover; Seattle based acoustic, folk, blues, funk, jam-band with Jordan Tan on mandolin, Chris Porter on guitar, and Serafima Healy on bass. A product of the grassroots music movement of Southern Oregon, Medford artist Arran Fagan has spent the greater part of his life pursuing music, working his way into the northwest folk scene by playing countless coffee shops and house shows for college classmates and eventually opening for northwest favorites like HorseFeathers, Kris Orlowski, and Jeffrey Martin. In 2015, Arran recruited fellow University of Portland students Jack Pfeffer and Jonathan Wiley, and the three worked to perfect a sparse, melodic sound influenced by their individual backgrounds. Fueled by introspective lyrics and nostalgic melodies provided by the intimate combination of viola, bass, and acoustic guitar, his music explores themes of loss, growth, and the passage of time with fresh eyes. https://arranfagan.bandcamp.com

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.”

West Seattle Art Walk
Mar 9 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Second Thursdays, it’s time for the West Seattle Art Walk; follow that link to see venue/artist highlights – and to get the walking map/venue list!

The West Seattle art walk is a monthly art event that is held the second Thursday of each month 6 pm to 9 pm year-round. The art walk is hosted by the local West Seattle merchants who feature a wide range of art and showcase our vibrant artist community.

West Seattle Artwalk: painter Lindsay Peyton @ Viscon Cellars
Mar 9 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

During West Seattle Art Walk: Viscon Cellars (WSB sponsor) to feature the work of local artist Lindsay Peyton.

Wine and art, the perfect pairing. With shared Texan roots, winemaker Ben Viscon and painter Lindsay Peyton discovered a fast friendship and a kindred creative spark in West Seattle.

Their respective mediums may differ, but both Peyton and Viscon are driven by a passion to make beautiful things.

And now both of their creations will be featured side-by-side. Peyton’s work will be on display in the Viscon Cellars tasting room, located at 5910 California Ave SW in West Seattle, from January through March.

Peyton will be on site during the West Seattle Art Walk from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month – Jan. 12, Feb. 9 and March 9.

The show comes on the heels of Peyton’s recent museum show in Houston, as well as a unique interactive installation in Issaquah over the summer.

“The Viscon Cellars exhibit will feature all new paintings,” Peyton said. “None of the paintings have been shown anywhere before, so that is always exciting for me.”

Peyton said she chose recent work that fits the character and identity of Viscon Cellars.

“Viscon Cellars is such a community gathering spot, a place that brings together friends and neighbors,” she said. “I am selecting work that has that feeling for me, whether it is a painting of a favorite Seattle bar or a friend’s living room where I spent a lot of time. I also did a painting of the Viscon Cellars tasting room, inspired by Ben and his passion for wine.”

Both Peyton and Viscon are from the Lone Star State, which is how the artist and winemaker originally bonded.

“When I first came into Viscon Cellars, I noticed a Texas license plate on the shelf,” Peyton said. “That’s how I learned Ben is from Texas too. We started talking and became instant friends.”

This will be the first time Peyton’s work is shown within the city limits of her current home of Seattle.

Milk Like Sugar
By Kirsten Greenidge

March 2–25, 2017

It is Annie Desmond’s sixteenth birthday and her friends have decided to help her celebrate in style, complete with a brand new tattoo. Before her special night is over, however, Annie and her friends enter into a life altering pact. When Annie tries to make good on her promise to her friends, she is forced to take a good look at the world that surrounds her. She befriends Malik, who promises a bright future, and Keera, whose evangelical leanings inspire Annie in a way her young parents have not been able to do. In the end Annie’s choices propel her onto an irreversible path in this story that combines wit, poetry, and hope.

Dr. Quinton Morris enjoys a multifaceted career as concert violinist, educator, entrepreneur, and filmmaker.

In 2015, Quinton founded Key to Change, a nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring creativity and self-discovery across communities through live performances, education, and cross-cultural conversation. That same year, he embarked on his year-long BREAKTHROUGH World Tour which paired chamber music recitals with educational outreach and community service in hospitals, orphanages, and under-resourced communities.

The tour also featured screenings of his short film, which premiered at the Seattle Art Museum and the Louvre Museum in Paris, among other distinguished venues. The film has been featured in film festivals in Las Vegas and New York and recently won the “Diamond Award” top prize at the European Independent Film Awards in Paris, France.

Additional career highlights include solo appearances with the Seattle Symphony, three consecutive years of sold-out recitals at Carnegie Hall, 11 years as Artistic Director of The Young Eight String Octet, and a TEDxSeattle talk on “The Age of the Artist Entrepreneur.”

Dr. Quinton Morris is a native of Renton, Washington. He earned his Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Texas at Austin. He joined the faculty of Seattle University in 2007. He is the first tenured music professor at Seattle University in 30 years and the second living African-American violinist in United States history to receive such a distinction.

Arbor Heights Cub Scout Pack 799 Food Drive
Mar 11 all-day

Cub Scout Pack 799 of Arbor Heights Elementary will soon be holding its annual food drive. In an effort to increase community participation in serving others, the Boy Scouts of America are teaming up with local residents in the fight against hunger. On Saturday, March 11th Cub Scouts will disperse door hangers around their neighborhoods to ask the community for their help with food donations, and to leave donated items on their doorstep to be collected the following Saturday to be transported to a local food bank (Saturday, March 18th). Through partnerships with more than 30 local food banks and pantries, the Scouting for Food drive provides approximately 60,000 pounds of food annually to needy families. This community service project is designed to help fill the shelves of neighborhood food banks at a time of year when needs are high and supplies are low.

Caregiver Classes
Adult Education – Support U: Fostering Caregiver Wellness Series

Do you care for, or simply worry about, an adult with a chronic condition or disability that needs support for living their best life? Whether that person is living with you, nearby or far away, is related to you or not – you are a caregiver. While you focus on the person for whom you care, the Support U adult education series will focus on you – the caregiver.

Support UTM: Fostering Caregiver Wellness, a program of Lutheran Community Services, partners with local congregations to make life better for seniors and their caregivers. Basic care-giving information and tips, presented in accessible classes, will help reduce the number of caregivers who suffer from burnout by trying to “do it all” alone.
