West Seattle Friday: Taste of the Arts; anniversaries; Corner Bar; First Friday; Mighty Wurlitzer …

The photo is from our visit to the WSHS Theater last night just before the first performance of the school’s spring student musical – which is part of the event that headlines today’s calendar preview:

‘TASTE OF THE ARTS’ WSHS BENEFIT: Starting with art, appetizers, and beverages at 6 pm in the St. John’s Church hall next door (3050 California SW) and moving to the West Seattle High School theater (3000 California SW) at 8 pm for “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” it’s this year’s Taste of the Arts” WSHS benefit.
