Wednesday morning miscellaneous mentions

FILM CREW AT WESTWOOD VILLAGE: In case you see it over by Eats Market and you’re wondering what’s up (thanks to Kristen for the tip and the follow-up info), they’re shooting a commercial for Sleep Country USA, till about 1 pm.

PHOTOGRAPHERS’ RIGHTS: We get lots of great pix from photographers both professional and nonprofessional around West Seattle, so when WS-based lawyer and WSB reader Venkat Balasubramani told us about this, we thought some of them might want to know: Tonight at Photographic Center Northwest (900 12th Ave, map), 6:15 pm, he’s discussing the legal rights of photographers who take photographs in public places. To register (discount in advance), go here.

CONCERT ON THE WATER IN WEST SEATTLE: Jennifer Kallen, the promoter for Firefly Concert Series, says the venue for this has changed to a waterfront residence in WS and there are a few tickets left: Rebecca Riots, 8 pm Saturday (after a 7 pm potluck). More info and tickets available here.

GO FISH!!!! Also Saturday — the first Hi-Yu event of the year is earlier than ever this time around, and while it’s on our Events page, we also wanted to give it a special advance shout-out as you plan your weekend: The West Seattle Sportsmen’s Club presents the annual Kids’ Fishing Derby at Seacrest, 8 am-11 am Saturday. Here’s a pic from a previous derby:


As Karen Haynes-Palmquist explains:

It is FREE to kids under age 14. Poles, bait, etc. are all supplied to fish for trout with, along with the expert help of the Sportsmen. The West Seattle Hi-Yu junior and senior court and candidates will also be there. A pond is set up with more than 100 fish, and goodie bags are distributed to all participants whether they catch a fish or not. Kids get to keep their catch. Information on the Sportsmen can be found at

    Trick, maybe it’s just a cutoff online. I will ping Venkat – he thought they would be able to accommodate as many people as showed up. Stand by!

    Trick: I checked with the organizers, and here’s what the organizers told me:

    Brown Paper Tickets stops selling the night before. However, they can still walk-in, albeit at a higher price – $40 for atty/paralegal and $15 for artist/student. Cash or check only.

    Venkat, Thank you so much, I was just out the door when I posted and couldn’t check back until now. I’ll definitely be looking out for the next one.
    Much appreciated !!!!

    I hate seeing people teach their kids that it’s ok to stick a hook inside the mouth of an animal ‘for fun’. ugh.

Sorry, comment time is over.
