Since we’re enjoying one last rainless day – and night – we’re spotlighting this first! From the WSB West Seattle Holiday Guide:
SHOP LATE THURSDAY: This is the first of three holiday-season Thursdays during which you can shop late in The Junction, as part of Hometown Holidays. The West Seattle Junction Association has put together a list spotlighting some of the participating businesses – see it here. Among the participants, longtime WSB sponsor Click! Design That Fits (4540 California SW), where you’ll find Naked Truth Beauty‘s pop-up, 5-8 pm.
FIRE TRUCK FOOD DRIVE: For the second of two nights, retired fire trucks will be in West Seattle – with Santa! – traveling neighborhood streets to collect your nonperishable food donations for the Union Gospel Mission.
We featured this on Wednesday after finding out about it at the last minute. Steve Hickey, who owns the trucks and has been taking them around the region to do this, says tonight’s plan (5-8 pm, *confirmed*) is “42nd to 40th from Hanford down to Manning. AND 39th to 37th from Manning to Olga.”
