What’s happening today/tonight/beyond: Street closures and more!

SUMMER FEST STREET CLOSURES START TONIGHT: 6 pm tonight, California closes between Genesee and Edmunds, and Alaska closes between 42nd and 44th (thanks to Sue for pointing out in comments that involves bus changes too). And those street closures mean …

WEST SEATTLE ART WALK BONUS! You can stroll carless streets while visiting The Junction for the Second Thursday Art Walk tonight, 6 pm-9 pm. Of course, the Art Walk has stretched far beyond The Junction now; see the list of venues at the Art Walk website. Some have artist receptions tonight, including ArtsWest.

ALSO TONIGHT IN THE JUNCTION: Marcus from “Last Comic Standing” is at Rocksport @ 8 pm (more on this later today), looking ahead to an Admiral Theater show tomorrow.

WHILE YOU’RE IN THE JUNCTION: Seattle Tilth says Next to Nature is now selling maps for this Saturday’s City Chickens tour, including coops at West Seattle homes (more here, and at the Tilth website here.)

AND MIDDAY TODAY IN THE JUNCTION: We’ve mentioned that all three West Seattle Little League All-Star teams have won their district championships – first time ever! – and are going to state tournaments. One of those teams, the 9-10s, has travel expenses because they’re going to Vancouver (WA), and players will be fundraising in The Junction today starting at 11 am (look for the red jerseys), as well as having a car wash/bake sale in the PCC parking lot Saturday, 11 am-2 pm.

SPEAKING OF SPORTS TEAMS: Don’t forget that when it’s time to nosh at Summer Fest, the West Seattle High School football team will be serving up chicken sandwiches and chicken Caesar salads to raise money for badly needed new uniforms (as first reported here last month). What else is at Summer Fest, you ask? Come say hi to Team WSB at the Information Booth all three days, and get info ahead of time at the SF website.

    This is the page for information on the bus reroutes through the Junction during the festival closings: http://transit.metrokc.gov/up/rr/reroutes.html#events – click on the bus you’re interested in it and it will tell you where the temporary stops are and when they’re in effect.

    Excellent point, I am going to add that to the main post for anyone who doesn’t click to read comments.

    Don’t forget: the Seattle premiere of “bare,” featuring the ArtsWest Summer Musical Theater Apprentice Program, opens tonight (July 10) for a 9-performance run. Tickets are only $15. 938-0339.

    Thanks – “bare” and even MORE events for tonight, and well beyond (stretching into next year!), can be found in West Seattle’s most comprehensive online events calendar:

    We update it multiple times daily and are very thankful for the many people and organizations who take time to send us word of happenings; we augment that with what we find ourselves by surfing as many WS and WS-related sites as we can (plus the announcements that are always included in the community meetings we cover).

    Bottom line, there’s virtually no excuse NOT to be in The Junction tonight!

Sorry, comment time is over.
