Happy post-holiday-weekend Tuesday! Half a dozen highlights, from the WSB West Seattle Events Calendar:

TRAFFIC ALERTS TONIGHT: As announced last week, the eastbound Spokane Street Viaduct (West Seattle Bridge between 99 and I-5) is scheduled to be reduced to one lane 9 pm-5 am as crews work on the realignment that will reopen the 4th Avenue South offramp and close the 1st Avenue South offramp for the next two weeks.

CHEER ON A WINNER! The winner of a $500 Western Family shopping spree at West Seattle Thriftway (WSB sponsor) goes down the aisles this morning at 10 am and the store invites spectators to cheer him on.

CHACO CANYON’S FIRST ‘$2.50 TUESDAY’: Starting today, 3 pm-close on Tuesdays, organic wine, beer, or cider will cost you only $2.50 at Chaco Canyon Organic Café (38th/Alaska in The Triangle).

K-5 STEM AT BOREN DESIGN TEAM: The group planning for the launch of West Seattle’s new public school meets tonight at 6:15 pm, Madison Middle School (45th/Spokane).

‘HOW TO CONDUCT PRODUCTIVE MEETINGS’: West Seattle Toastmasters Club 832 invites you to join them in exploring this topic, 6:30 pm at The Kenney (7125 Fauntleroy Way SW; WSB sponsor).

LAST SCHEDULED DAY FOR WEST SEATTLE’S STATE LIQUOR STORES: As announced last week, the Junction and Westwood stores are scheduled to close after today – two days before they would have had to close as part of the transition to privatized liquor; the state decided to close its stores in phases (the White Center state-run store will close after tomorrow). Both are scheduled to reopen Friday under private ownership, according to what their respective new owners have told WSB.

Planning an event in West Seattle/White Center/South Park? Please let us know so we can calendarize it! No need to write up a full news release – who/what/when/where/why/weblink (and/or Facebook event link) will do – just plain text in your e-mail, please; e-mail to editor@westseattleblog.com – preferably at least a week in advance, though if you have something planned for weeks or even months from now, go ahead and send it!

    I may have pointed this out before, but the railroad bridge turned 100 years old last year!
