West Seattle Friday: ‘Oliver!’, Haggis Brothers, Blue Angels…

Where’d the sun go? We hear it’ll be back. As for when … answers vary. So in the meantime, from the WSB West Seattle Events calendar:

BLUE ANGELS, FLEET TOURS, AND OTHER SEAFAIR NOTES: Obviously weather affects the Blue Angels‘ plans, and we’ll update you here (as well as via the WSB Facebook and Twitter channels) if this hasn’t lifted as noontime gets closer (the show usually starts close to 1). They have a “low show” that’s been done on cloudy days – but fog is another thing. Please see our story from last night re: watching them (and the fact this is the no-admission-charged day at Lake Washington). Also note, something the weather won’t affect – fleet tours continue (details here).

FIRST SUMMER CONCERT AT THE MOUNT: By most accounts, it should be nice at least by evening time, and that’s when you can bring your chair/blanket to Providence Mount St. Vincentfour free Friday night outdoor concerts. It’s on the south side of The Mount’s campus at 4831 35th SW. The Haggis Brothers play tonight, 6 pm (you’re welcome to come earlier and buy dinner/beer/wine if you want; free popcorn and snow cones).

DELRIDGE POTLUCK: Evening potluck – Free. (From the Adult section of the summer Seattle Parks and Rec guide.) An evening potluck followed by card playing, Scrabble, cribbage, and conversation. 6-9 pm

BIKE RACE: “Dead Baby Bikes Downhill” race leaves West Seattle this year – from Shipwreck Tavern. Registration 5 pm, race leaves 7 pm. Watch for bikes between the tavern and the bridge – possibly some congestion on Admiral too.

MUSIC AT C & P COFFEE: Tomorrow night, he’s the preshow entertainment at West Seattle Outdoor Movies; tonight, Bob “Bobcat Bob” Rice is live at C & P Coffee (WSB sponsor, 5612 California SW), 6-8 pm.

    Call me a stick in the mud, but a beer-fueled down-hill bike race doesn’t feel like an appropriate use of open public streets.

    Ok, you’re a stick in the mud. The bike race is the least of it. Most people just meander down to Georgetowne on their bikes or via other means. It’s a great big party, street fair, and get together that ends in Georgetowne. Last year about 2,000 people attended. You’re invited even though you’re a stick in the mud. Don’t judge it until you’ve experienced it yourself. Just regular folk trying to have some good clean fun.

    Race and ride start at 7PM. Party goes on past my bedtime. I’m often a stick in the mud myself, but I’m going to go try and have some fun anyhow.

    Anyone know what the route is? I know it starts at Shipwreck, but then where’s it heading? Might try to go out and get some photos…

Sorry, comment time is over.
