West Seattle Thursday: Art Walk; story time with SFD; low tide; wine; World Cup-watching…

That’s the walking map for tonight’s West Seattle Art Walk, 6-9 pm at more than two dozen local venues. You’ll find art previews at wsartwalk.com, and we’ve heard directly from some of the venues/artists too:

‘BRIDGING THE GAP’ AT HOTWIRE: As previewed here last night – the first of several summertime events in honor of the 30th anniversary of the high-level West Seattle Bridge.

It’s at Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (WSB sponsor) in collaboration with the Southwest Seattle Historical Society/Log House Museum, whose Bob Carney, exhibit volunteer, and Sarah Baylinson, museum manager, were at Hotwire last night to put up the exhibit. (4410 California SW)

CUSTOM iPHONE AMPLIFIERS: Stylish and West Seattle-made, amply explained on the Click! Design That Fits (WSB sponsor) website – this is just one of the one-of-a-kind creations:

Creator Fritz Rud will “make his worldwide debut,” Click! says, at the shop during Art Walk tonight.

WEST SEATTLE GARDEN TOUR POSTER ARTIST: Sue Madill, whose design won this year’s WSGT poster-art contest, is the featured artist at Windermere West Seattle. (4526 California SW)

WINE PARTY AND ART … at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor), with live music by Choro Tocando and art by Bill Reiswig, 7-9 pm. (5612 California SW)

ART WALK AT SHADOWLAND: Meet artist Bethany Alsin. (4458 California SW)

Also today/tonight:

LOW TIDE WITH BEACH NATURALISTS! Today, you’ll find Seattle Aquarium volunteer beach naturalists out right now, until 1:30 pm, at Constellation and Lincoln Parks. (Low tide, at 10:56 am, is -2.6 feet – that’s quite low, and the next three days will be lower still.)

FIREFIGHTER STORY TIME: 11 am, Southwest Library, one of the popular events with Seattle Fire Department members reading to little ones. (35th/Henderson)

WATCHING THE WORLD CUP: The international soccer championship series starts today, and West Seattle venues who’ve let us know they’re showing the games are The Bridge in Morgan Junction, Celtic Swell on Alki, and West Seattle Brewing in The Triangle. Anyone else? editor@westseattleblog.com – let us know!

NORTHWEST WINE ACADEMY TURNS 10: It’s the 10th anniversary of the Northwest Wine Academy on the north end of the South Seattle College (WSB sponsor) campus and the celebration coincides with the spring release of new wines, which you can taste and purchase during 2-7 pm events today, tomorrow, and Saturday. Details in our calendar listing. (6000 16th SW)

    Those iPhone Victrolas are awesome! I have a Galaxy or I’d be all over one of those.

    Do the amplifiers work JUST for iPhone, or are they “smartphone” amplifiers?

    • WSB June 12, 2014 (6:09 pm)

      Sorry, there was a flyer I couldn’t upload because oddly our site has an arbitrary size limit and I got sidetracked before going to upload it somewhere else – for now, it says, iPhone 4 or 5 series only.

    Was there any price associated with the amplifiers? It really would be a great father’s day gift!

    • WSB June 12, 2014 (7:36 pm)

      I will find another way to add the flyer, which has prices – check our Art Walk report soon (we stopped there while in The Junction, though just had to divert to the ultimately unfounded fire call). They’ll be on sale at Click! even after Art Walk night. Meantime, the creator does have a website – http://salv.co/

    Fantastic! Thank you so much for the follow up. Greatly appreciated.

    Perhaps a little late for Thursday news, but The Corner Pocket in the Junction will be showing all of the World Cup games. I’ll try to get the manager to email you to confirm, if you need. He’s a bit of a rabid soccer fan :).

      Thanks. We’ll mention it in today’s daily lineup.

Sorry, comment time is over.
