It’s the second Thursday in October, and that means West Seattle Art Walk night! That’s where we begin our list of what’s happening:
ART WALK: Both in-person and online, tonight’s the night to enjoy great art by local artists, displayed by local businesses; the full rundown is here. Highlights: Verity Credit Union (4505 California SW; WSB sponsor) is one of the venues where you can meet the artist – distanced, of course (and Verity has a big folding-door facade, so it’s open-air) – Natalie Millsap, 6-8 pm; Canna Culture Shop (5435 California SW; WSB sponsor) features artist Brigitte Halpin starting at 5 pm; that’s also the reception start time at new business Doll Parts Collective (6016 California SW), with artist Kat Honda Whitham. Also tonight: Watch for live updates from The Junction on Instagram.
Also happening today/tonight:

APPOINTED SHERIFF, NOT ELECTED? One of the measures on your forthcoming ballot would change the King County Sheriff from elected to appointed.
