West Seattle, Washington
For the first time since we started keeping a close eye on WS prices almost 4 weeks ago, THERE’S A PRICE CUT! After holding at $3.49/regular for 2 weeks, the 35th/Holden Chevron is down tonight to $3.45. (Sorry, no photo, too dark; tomorrow!)
Elsewhere online, blurbs just popped up announcing a Robin Williams show at the Showbox next Tuesday, saying the proceeds will benefit the West Seattle Food Bank. Nothing about it on the WSFB site (and the mention on the Showbox site doesn’t mention the benefit aspect); but we did find a mention in the WSFB newsletter archives of a big “surprise donation” from Williams and his wife three years ago, after Showbox performances. Any insiders who can clue us to the Williams/WSFB connection, we’d love to hear the story. Meantime, you can buy tickets for this show online starting @ 10 am Monday morning (here’s the direct link).

If you want to review your Neighborhood Plan first, find it on the dropdown list here.
