Thanks to everyone who sent photos of this morning’s beautiful moonset – the “Snow Moon” that rose right after sunset last night went down right around sunrise today; we’re featuring four views (remember, you can click a photo to open a larger view in “lightbox” mode). Should be another gorgeous moonrise tonight – just after 7 pm, according to the WSB West Seattle Weather page. Here’s what else is ahead tonight:
BLACK HISTORY MONTH DINNER: Right across the street from the school, the CSIHS Black Student Union is presenting an all-community Black History Month dinner at Southwest Teen Life Center tonight, 6-7:30 pm. Details here. (2801 SW Thistle)
CRIME, SAFETY, TRANSPARENCY: Southwest Precinct police will brief the West Seattle Block Watch Captains Network at 6:30 tonight about the latest crime/safety concerns around the peninsula – and WSBWCN leaders have booked a special guest: SPD’s new director of transparency and privacy, Mary Perry. All welcome – you don’t have to be part of a Block Watch to attend. (2300 SW Webster)
QUESTIONS ABOUT THE HOUSING LEVY? Later this year, you’ll be asked to vote on an expanded Seattle Housing Levy that the mayor says is a key part of this year’s work to alleviate the housing-affordability crisis. Hours after he went public with his first proposal, it was discussed at a meeting in West Seattle – where participants asked city reps to come back for a longer discussion/briefing. Tonight’s the night. If you have comments/questions, the place to be is the Senior Center of West Seattle, 6:30-8 pm. (California SW/SW Oregon)
WEST SEATTLE CROCHET AND KNIT CIRCLE: Don’t just sit home with your yarn … bring it to Uptown Espresso in The Junction for this weekly meetup, open to all, regardless of skill level. Starts at 7 pm. (California/Erskine/Edmunds)
