West Seattle Monday: Welcome to ‘the week between’

(Sunday photo by Chas Redmond)
The week between Christmas and New Year’s is admittedly usually fairly quiet – though the “s” word remains in the forecast for later this week – but there are a few things to share: First, for transit users, remember that Metro continues “reduced weekday service” between the holidays … From the WSB Forums, there’s a La Leche League meeting this morning, 10:30 am at Seaview Methodist Church (4620 SW Graham) … Tonight, families are welcome at Pajama Story Time at High Point Library (35th/Raymond), 7 pm … C & P Coffee (WSB sponsor) doesn’t usually have live music on Mondays, but tonight, regular performer Bob “Bobcat Bob” Rice is scheduled to play, 6-8 pm … Monday night means that Scrabble‘s the word, raising money this time for Books for Prisoners, tonight at Skylark Café and Club (WSB sponsor), 7 pm registration, 7:15 pm game (details here). … And if you feel like dancing, you’ve got the floor at Kenyon Hall during Balorico‘s Family Holiday Dance Party, 4:30-5:45 pm (details here).

    There were six of us at the bus stop at 6:30 this morning waiting for the 56 Express and none of us knew Metro was on reduced weekday service until I checked WSB on my phone. Thanks to the blog we were far better informed than the driver of the 57 (which we all took) who turned up a few minutes later.

    JAT, have you signed up for Metro’s E-Mail Alerts?



    You can customize your alerts to the route(s) you ride, and receive “real time” alerts to delays, reroutes, etc, and updates when the issue has cleared, and service is beginning to return to normal. Also, you can receive heads-up to service changes, such as this Holiday one.

      Good point, Mike – Metro has even been advertising the alert service here (see ad in sidebar). But there may be a bit of a challenge regarding longterm alerts like this – I am sure they sent one out (we subscribe to multiple West Seattle alerts to watch for possible news) when this was announced, but maybe not a reminder this morning, which might be worth considering, as people come back from the holiday and need reminders … TR

    Yeah, My alert regarding that was from the 23rd, so it would be kind of nice to have another E-M generated maybe late afternoon yesterday.
