Comedy superstar raising $ for WSFB

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.

Thanks to the reader who e-mailed us this article we missed — featuring a WS guy who’ll spend his Saturday doing something tremendous. Quiet heroism, happening all around us.

That phrase apparently applies to the Westwood Village vicinity for a non-shopping reason.

We got a kick out of this one

First, we were called “quirky” and “crazy.” Then we got a marquee moment. Now — Seattlest is charitable enough to label WSB “increasingly kick-ass.” (Wouldn’t be without your tips; keep ’em coming!)
