    Wow, really? Landfill Harmonic Orchestra playing here in WS tonight !?!? I saw the story on them on 60 minutes.  Is it open to the public?      

    • WSB June 2, 2016 (9:36 am)

      Yes, we don’t calendarize things that aren’t, and almost everything in our calendar is sent to us (as was this) expressly for the purpose of calendarizing it.

    Yes, the public is welcome to join us tonight for the Landfill Harmonic Orchestra! Pigott Chapel on the third floor. Free parking surrounding the building or on the street. The concert is free but donations for the orchestra will be greatly appreciated.

    It’s nice to see that the Delridge Grocery Farmstand is back.  But it reminded me – their co-op still isn’t open.  I don’t see any substantive updates on their website.  How much longer will this drag out?

      Stop by and ask them! Last I heard, they were getting city help – as promised/inferred at the Find It Fix It Walk last year – with some issues including parking … but I haven’t seen any permit filings for getting the interior build-out going.
