West Seattle Monday: Christmas Ship; ‘Get Fit’; holiday giving…

Candace McCutcheon shared that photo from the December 7th Christmas Ship stop at Alki. Tonight’s your last chance to see and hear it off West Seattle shores this holiday season – one of five highlights:

HOLIDAY GIVING – ACT FAST!: Many toy drives, giving trees, and other opportunities for holiday help end within the next few days – for some, the deadline is today (Toys for Tots at C & P Coffee [WSB sponsor], for example – just bring a new unwrapped toy!); for others, you have a few more days (Firefly‘s giving tree for a local family); only a few run beyond this week, so please don’t procrastinate! Please see the list in the WSB Holiday Guide.

AFTERNOON BOOK GROUP: 2 pm, Southwest Library. This month’s book: Emily Alone” by Stewart O’Nan. (35th/Henderson)

GET FIT, WEST SEATTLE! Informational meeting at 6:30 pm for the next West Seattle Runner (WSB sponsor) edition of this couch-to-marathon program – which, as explained in our preview, is free! (California/Charlestown)

    I still have shopping to do. (most of it actually-I was waiting for payday)
    other than Thursdays, are the junction merchants having any shop late days in the days leading up to Christmas?
    in addition to other merchants, I’m curious if curious kidstuff will have any shop late days. I need to get there after putting baby to bed at 7. it doesn’t look like they participate in the Thursday thing. and to keep 5 y.o. from getting curious and looking for things hidden in the house, would like to avoid shopping on the weekend. thanks for anyone who has ideas! if I can avoid big box stores and online shopping I will! there are a few places in the junction I want to get to. city mouse, curious kidstuff, sneakery

    I don’t mean to be scrooge but I live near met market and the saltys ship is so loud my kids woke up. I can’t imagine how deafening it must be for folks down on alki.

      Melissa, I suspect that was the fog carrying sound in an odd way. It wasn’t any louder than usual from where we stood – actually maybe a bit muffled. Sorry that your kids were awakened. Gone now.

    ok, so Curious kidstuff is not listed on the junction’s ‘shop late Thursdays’ page, and their normal hours are listed in the google search view. however, when I actually opened their website to look at their calendar, yes they are open till 8 pm this Thursday through next Monday,

Sorry, comment time is over.
