West Seattle, Washington
For the first time in a long time, at least three WS gas stations have regular posted in the $3.20s. The 35th/Avalon 7-11 has taken a big dive to $3.28; not to be outdone, Delridge Arco is down tonight to $3.27 (left). (Admiral/Cali Chevron was at $3.29 when we last went by this morning; we trust our north end spotters will tell us if it’s fallen further!) Looks like this is in keeping with a national trend, though we’re still above the U.S. average.
A few things we thought you might want to know about before the next weekend roundup rolls around:
-School-play season isn’t over yet: Schmitz Park Elementary stages “101 Dalmatians” @ WSHS tomorrow night and Thursday night.
-“Carver’s Pieces,” presented by The Community Theatre, opens Thursday night @ Youngstown Arts Center.
-If you run an area business, there’s still time till the end of this week to get a spot at the June 5 Greater West Seattle “Neighbors In Business” Open House @ SSCC — go here to find out more (also note, you don’t have to be a businessperson to attend the actual event).
-Best buy tickets now for ArtsWest’s annual benefit/gala Saturday night.
-ArtsWest also just announced an after-hours event June 9 featuring “six rising West Seattle comedians.”
-Next Sunday @ 2 pm at the WS Library, poet Frances McCue lectures about legendary local writer Richard Hugo, who we didn’t know till now was a White Center native and wrote extensively about post-WWII West Seattle.
The City Council just officially approved its $8 million plan (which will apparently take a year to draw up, so guess the viaduct’s not going anywhere any time soon) to try to figure out how we would all get around without a viaduct or a tunnel. Press release text after the click:Read More
Looks like we have to drop Mischiefblog off our Other Blogs In WS page — he’s moved to Mill Creek, and just posted about getting ready to FSBO his WS house “cheap-cheap-cheap.”
The Times profiles WS-based Officer Ralph Wilson, the star of this recent post about a bank-robbery suspect busted while panhandling.
Funny this P-I article didn’t even mention WS, where condos/townhomes are popping up like dandelions. And the teardown-to-townhomes along Cali are selling fast. Checking up on a few – Soundview in the 5900 block is “sold out,” as are Sea Holly in the 5600 block and Bayberry in the 6900 block of Cali. A bit further south, the condo-converted 1 bed/1 ba units at SeventyOne are close to half-sold. Question is now, how is the higher-end market doing? Still some openings listed at NoMo 12 — half-mil and up. (Though if you really want luxury, we’d suggest Alki’s most expensive current condo listing.)
