Big meetings and big fun in our calendar highlights for the rest of today/tonight:
SOUND TRANSIT 3: At 1:30 pm, the Sound Transit board is expected to take its final vote on the $54 billion Sound Transit 3 package that you’ll be voting on in November, including a plan for light rail to West Seattle in 2030. You’ll be able to watch live here; the agenda and related documents are here. (401 S. Jackson)
LOW TIDE: Still low enough for excellent exploring, though the volunteer beach naturalists aren’t out today. -1.7 feet at 1:35 pm.
DELRIDGE GROCERY CO-OP FARMSTAND: 4-7 pm today, the Delridge Grocery Co-op farmstand is in its new location in the church parking lot north of the Delridge P-Patch. (Delridge Way SW & Puget Bouleard)
SCHOOL BOARD BUDGET HEARING: At 4:30 pm, the Seattle School Board has time set aside for a public hearing on budgets. As we’ve been reporting, new enrollment projections have led to an order for teacher-staffing changes at local schools, and some, particularly a 3-teacher cut for Chief Sealth International High School, are likely to be brought up by speakers. (3rd & Lander)
WEIRDO SIMPATICO: 7 pm at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor), “Seattle author and jazz vocalist Katy Bourne reads from Weirdo Simpatico: Little Stories for Short Attention Spans as bassist Paul Gabrielson improvises a live musical backdrop.” (5612 California SW)
HI-YU WHITE ROSE CEREMONY: It’s a gathering not only to celebrate the new West Seattle Hi-Yu Junior Court and Teen Ambassadors, but also in honor of past royalty. Full details here. 7 pm at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church. No charge; donations welcome. (3050 California SW)
THE SLAGS AT THE POGGIE: Thanks to The Slags for letting us know when they play Poggie Tavern, whose calendar isn’t online (otherwise we’d include their listings regularly) – see and hear them tonight starting at 9. (4717 California SW)
TRUE LOVES TRIO AT THE PARLIAMENT: Thanks to the Parliament Tavern for sending us their listings so we can include more live music here in the calendar (free!). At 9 tonight, no cover, it’s True Loves Trio and special guests. (4210 SW Admiral Way)
THERE’S MORE, AS ALWAYS! See it all here.
