Sort of a quiet Saturday. So our highlights include some regular weekly events that otherwise usually just linger on our calendar. But first:
TRAFFIC ALERTS: Two reminders – barrier work today closing inside lanes on the Fauntleroy end of the West Seattle Bridge, and scheduled-for-the-entire-weekend work closing the offramp from NB I-5 to the bridge and Beacon Hill.
Now, here’s what’s up:
TAI CHI AT THE BEACH: Just a few more Saturdays to enjoy this free (by donation) class until it goes on hiatus! 9 am near Alki Statue of Liberty Plaza, with teacher Caylen Storm. (61st SW/Alki SW)
SEATTLE DESIGN AND PRINT GRAND OPENING: 9 am-3 pm, visit Seattle Design and Print, a new-and-not-far WSB sponsor, for its grand-opening celebration, including a 20 percent discount on services. (2445 4th Ave. S.)
SOUTHWEST ARTIST SHOWCASE DROP-OFF: You are invited to be part of the Southwest Library‘s 27th annual Artist Showcase! Today’s the last of three days for you to do that by visiting the library (open 10 am-6 pm) to sign up while dropping off up to three pieces of your visual art. (9010 35th SW)
BIKE CLUB: Meet at Ounces in North Delridge for the weekly hour-or-so-long ride, 12:30 pm. (3809 Delridge Way SW)
(added) ‘LET’S TALK RACE’ SERIES: 1-6 pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, another installment in the Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association series: “13th and U.S. Policies.”
What is justice? What is freedom? Who decides? This half-day event will explore these questions and the intersections of policy and institutionalized racism through the film “13th.” The film will be screened in two segments, followed by dialogue and storytelling to deepen our understanding of how the 13th amendment and U.S. history play a role in perpetuating systemic oppression.
(4408 Delridge Way SW)
OLG SCHOOL ART WALK: 6-9 pm at Our Lady of Guadalupe‘s Walmesley Center:
Please join the West Seattle community as we celebrate Our Lady of Guadalupe School and amazing local artists as we host our First Annual Art Walk. Tasty food, local beer and wine, and music from the Garfield High School Jazz Quartet will be present for your enjoyment!
Tickets available here or at the door. (3401 SW Myrtle)
HUMMINGBULL: 7-9 pm at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor), this is the “musical project of Seattle native singer-songwriter Timothy Smith … a lyric-centric songwriter (who) urges the audience to think deep, to ask big questions.” (5612 California SW)
