Holiday concerts, theater, burlesque, night market, more for your West Seattle Friday

No, that’s not leftover snow/frost in Rosalie Miller‘s photo. It’s “the plasmodium stage of a slime mold. You can just make out some of the circular structures which are the fruiting bodies and these will become more distinct and colorful over time.” So look closely in our forests – you never know what you’ll see! Meantime, on a larger scale, here’s what’s happening for the rest of your Friday, from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar and Holiday Guide (where you’ll find lots of other seasonal info too):

                    Fantastic forest fact and photo, Rosalie Miller!

    Just returned from the WSCO concert.  Cello Concerto soloist was awesome.  Romeo and Juliet (Prokofiev) was borderline soporific, but most 20th-century Soviet-modern music is :)

    WSCO is a true community gem.
