We took the photo Sunday afternoon at Delridge Skatepark, formally opening on Delridge Day September 17th (but being skated like crazy, again, when we ran by) – we got a tip about the banner, made by an anonymous West Seattleite who wanted to show appreciation for the Grindline design/build crew’s labors. On to the Labor Day info:
TRANSPORTATION: Metro Transit, the West Seattle Water Taxi (along with its shuttle buses), and Sound Transit express buses are all on their Sunday schedules. Washington State Ferries‘ Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth route is on a weekend schedule .
PARKING IN THE PAY ZONES DOWNTOWN, ETC.: Pay stations/meters are on holiday too – free street parking today.
SOLID WASTE PICKUP: If you have city trash/recycling/yard waste pickup on Mondays, it’s on a normal schedule despite the holiday.
STATE LIQUOR STORES: Open 10 am-7 pm.
WHAT’S NOT HAPPENING: Most government offices/facilities closed (Seattle Public Library system reopens tomorrow), most banks closed, no mail delivery.
BUSINESSES? Mixed bag, judging by what we’ve seen mentioned on business Facebook pages/Twitter feeds – more closed than open, overall. Avalon Glassworks did e-mail to say they’ll be open.
As for events, we have a few:
COOKING CLUB MEETS: The holiday’s not stopping the West Seattle Cooking Club from meeting today. Location: Beveridge Place Pub. Theme: “4 ingredients.” Time: 2 pm. The challenge this week – to create a dish limited to 4 ingredients – salt, pepper and oil are allowed in addition to the 4 ingredients that you choose. (Then bring your creation to BPP for the meeting.)
LAST DAY FOR THE WADING POOL: Last day of the season for the last West Seattle wading pool still open, Lincoln Park.
