West Seattle Tuesday: Park dedication; Spoke & Food; more

(Photo by Jillian Lenox)
Maybe it’ll be sunny later. Can’t even rely on the forecast any more. In case it isn’t, here’s a blue-sky photo to enjoy. Fun stuff going on later, clouds, sun, or rain – the long-long-long-awaited Junction Plaza Park dedication (previewed here) at 5:30 pm; a Senior Housing and Resource Fair at Senior Center of West Seattle, lunch provided, 10 am-1 pm (full details here); tonight at 6:30 at Jefferson Square (suite 600), Savvy Seattle Women present “How to Finance and Buy a Fixer” … Porterhouse is the lone West Seattle restaurant on the list of participants for the first Spoke and Food Event — raising money for Solid Ground’s Lettuce Link program if you bicycle to dinner … At 7 pm West Seattle Hi-Yu invites you to the 2010 White Rose Reception, a women-only event celebrating past and present Hi-Yu royalty and candidates at Fauntleroy Church Hall; past royalty are encouraged to wear or bring their sashes and memory scrapbooks … Another reception today, at South Seattle Community College, celebrates the artists showing their work in “This Old Piano,” 12 – 2 pm at the Art Gallery, more info here.

    The Spoke And Food link isn’t working.

    Too bad it’s just Porterhouse. Sounds like a decent idea if some of the other places in town got involved.

      Sorry, Andy, thanks for pointing that out – we had one extra letter. Fixed now.

    No sweat, and thanks for the fix.

    Perhaps next a “Spoke and Brews” event? Promote a little responsible post-libation transportation.

    Is that a recent pic of the Mountain?


    I didn’t think she’d been out yet this year! ;)

      M – we did see The Mountain while on The Bridge the other day. Luckily I wasn’t the one driving, so I could swivel and gawk.

    Oh yes, Rainier has been out a few times this year and we’ve had some grand views of her from the southbound Viaduct! Guess we won’t have that delightful privilege much longer . . .

    We actually saw The Mountain while driving to the airport this morning. It looked like it was floating above the clouds. Was sad I didn’t have a camera with me!

    I actually seem to recall the Mountain being out on one of my occasional bus trips out of West Seattle, maybe a month or so ago. :cool:


    We’ve just had so few sunny days compared to this time last year, and with the few that we’ve had, and the few of those I’ve happened to head out of WS, she’s been hiding behind some haze/clouds for most of them.


    But then again. we’re kinda used to her playing hide and seek with us! ;)

    Actually Porterhouse bailed on Spoke & Food last night. Mission was kind enough to volunteer at the last minute, however.

  • WS Biker June 30, 2010 (1:35 pm)

    Yeah…I heard the Porterhouse bailed on the event too. Not cool at all! Thank you Mission for stepping up!

    Yes that photo was taken Saturday afternoon. Was breathtaking so i just had to pull over and take a few photos of it.

Sorry, comment time is over.
