    I thought bamboo got rid of DJ music due to shooting and safety concerns?

      Different DJ/music programming.

    The skating at Alki is very much for young kids. The gym is not suitable to skate on since the floor is very dusty and dirty. Southgate is a much superior option on Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

    We need a sports bar in WS now that Rocksport is gone. There’s not one spot that you can watch AND hear the game at the same time. Go Seahawks!

    Thanks for mention of West Side Glory. We really hope folks (over 21) will come out and join us for a great evening of fun. Would love to see lots of new faces there. Sword swallowing, comedians, Drag Queens and King – what better way to start the weekend, eh? Keep West Seattle Wacky! Cheers.
