West Seattle Tuesday: Liquor-store move, crime-prevention meeting, drill at SSCC, more

From the WSB West Seattle Events calendar:

CLOSING DAY FOR OLD JUNCTION LIQUOR STORE: Out with the old, in with the new. The old state liquor store in The Junction closes for good when its doors shut tonight on California SW at 9 pm, and the new one (as first reported here in February, it’s in Capco Plaza at 41st/Alaska) opens tomorrow morning, as a “premier store” that will be the first in the state trying out a new concept including liquor-tasting events (here’s our original report from June).

CRIMEFIGHTING IN ARBOR HEIGHTS, AND DONATIONS FOR FIRE VICTIMS: Arbor Heights Community Church announced tonight’s crime-prevention meeting long before last Saturday’s house fire nearby. But it will now do double duty – the church will accept donations for the fire victims (as explained in our Sunday night story) at the meeting. It’s at 41st/102nd in Arbor Heights.

LAW-ENFORCEMENT DRILL ON PUGET RIDGE: South Seattle Community College will host an exercise today that might look or sound alarming if you happen onto it – but it’s only a drill. Details here, in the preview we published last night.

JOB-SEARCH SUPPORT GROUP: The weekly “Notes from the Job Search” support/networking group meets 11 am today (and every Tuesday) at C & P Coffee (WSB sponsor), 5612 California SW.

BIRD PHOTOS AT BIRD ON A WIRE: West Seattle photographer Danny McMillin, whose work you’ve seen here and elsewhere, debuts his photography show “A Sampling of Birds” at Bird on a Wire Espresso in West Seattle (SW Henderson west of 35th SW) this afternoon. It’ll be up through September,

BACK TO SCHOOL BARBECUE: Eight days before the first day of classes, a Back to School BBQ is scheduled today for Roxhill Elementary families, 4:30 – 6:30 pm, serving hot dogs and chips, and distributing free backpacks and school supplies to as many students as they can.

COUCH TO 5K: Running Evolution starts a new Couch to 5k class at West Seattle Runner (WSB sponsor), 6:30 tonight. It’s a 6 week class for $95.

DISC-OVER THIS: West Seattle Ultimate Frisbee plays 6:30 pm Tuesdays at Fairmount Playfield.

‘TRIVIA THAT ROCKS’ Tuesday night means rock music trivia at Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor), 8 pm.

    My wife and I plus a friend attended Trivia that Rocks for the first time last week… And we had a BLAST! Very funny host and the crowd was too. I was just really excited they had a question about 80s hair metal band Dokken!

    Definitely check it out!

    If they’re going to have the same staff at the new liquor store location I’m not sure the premiere concept is going to fly. I always find that location to be lacking in customer service and marketing appeal.

Sorry, comment time is over.
