West Seattle Saturday: Polar Plunge; two anniversaries …

That photo by Lisa came along with her beautiful photo of low-tide beach life shown here last night – just imagine warm sunshine as you join the Polar Plunge at Alki Beach at noon today, to raise money for Special Olympics/Washington. If you’re not already signed up, you can register any time after 9 am, at the Alki Bathhouse. WSB is proud to co-sponsor this event again this year, and we hope to see you there! Also from the WSB West Seattle Events calendar, including a few of interest off-peninsula:

DUWAMISH LONGHOUSE ANNIVERSARY: 10 am-3 pm today, the Duwamish Tribe invites you to celebrate the second anniversary of its West Seattle longhouse (4705 West Marginal Way SW).

MERRILL GARDENS-ADMIRAL HEIGHTS ANNIVERSARY: At 2:30 pm, you’re invited to 2326 California SW for music and refreshments to mark its 10th anniversary.

CITY HALL OPEN HOUSE: 11 am-2 pm, you’re invited to tour the headquarters of city government with the schedule including a performance by West Seattle’s Caspar Babypants at 12:45 pm. 5th and Cherry downtown.

CITY COUNCILMEMBERS’ COFFEE CHAT: As mentioned here last night – this isn’t in West Seattle but local youth-sports advocates are going to the Corner Café on First Hill, 9 am-11 am, to take their concerns about park/playfield fees to City Councilmembers Sally Clark and Sally Bagshaw.

LUNAR NEW YEAR CELEBRATION: The Chinatown-International District Business Association has been advertising this event here and elsewhere around the city to be sure to get the word out that everyone’s invited – 11 am-4 pm at Hing Hay Park, 423 Maynard Avenue S. (map). Full details here.

    I had to go back & check the Polar Plunge times because KING5 is really confusing things. They have a reporter down there and have been hyping that she’s plunging at 9:45 – makes it sound like that’s when it takes place. It’s not until NOON folks, come on down!

    Christo’s is offering 20% off for participants of the Polar Bear Plunge and all law enforcement officers until 3pm today!

    Oh, the power of the internets. Thank you KING…they’re clearly stating the 12:00 plunge now – brrrrr! And that’s a “cool” offer from Christo’s ;)

    The King 5 Reporter did clarify on her latest Live Broadcast that even though she’s plunging at 9:45, (most likely just for them to have a chance to air it Live), that the official start time is Noon.
