Duke’s Seafood reopens on Alki with chowder giveaway
Feb 28 – Mar 5 all-day

Duke’s Seafood’s West Seattle restaurant is set to re-open on Wednesday, February 28. The location has been closed for about a month for repairs due to flooding from burst pipes during January’s freezing temps.

To celebrate, Duke’s Seafood on Alki will offer One Free Bowl of Chowder to anyone who stops by during the first week of opening (Wednesday, February 28 – March 5). Again, the West Seattle location only.

After that, the restaurant plans to launch a new weekly “free special” for the entire month of March.

Owners Duke Moscrip and son John Moscrip made lemonade out of lemons by utilizing this temporary inconvenience as an opportunity to give the location a few updates. New flooring and carpet, of course, but also new lighting and décor, new paint, as well as kitchen upgrades. Alki has a fresh, new look!

Early morning F3 men’s workout group at Hiawatha
Mar 5 @ 5:30 am

F3, a free national men’s workout group:

We have a local workout location that meets at Hiawatha park on Tuesday mornings at 5:30 am sharp. The group has been around for a few years, so many folks that are up early might have come across us before doing burpees or pushups and counting out loud. We’d love to extend the invite to men of any fitness level – we work out as a group and don’t leave anyone behind, come as you are and hopefully leave a bit better.

The workout is 45 minutes long and then we all get coffee at West Seattle Grounds. You don’t need to bring anything special, just wear comfortable athletic clothes appropriate for the weather and some sneakers. Some work or gardening gloves can be helpful if you have a pair. Just don’t be late or the whole group is doing penalty burpees.

Early morning F3 men’s workout group at Hiawatha
Mar 12 @ 5:30 am

F3, a free national men’s workout group:

We have a local workout location that meets at Hiawatha park on Tuesday mornings at 5:30 am sharp. The group has been around for a few years, so many folks that are up early might have come across us before doing burpees or pushups and counting out loud. We’d love to extend the invite to men of any fitness level – we work out as a group and don’t leave anyone behind, come as you are and hopefully leave a bit better.

The workout is 45 minutes long and then we all get coffee at West Seattle Grounds. You don’t need to bring anything special, just wear comfortable athletic clothes appropriate for the weather and some sneakers. Some work or gardening gloves can be helpful if you have a pair. Just don’t be late or the whole group is doing penalty burpees.

Words, Writers, Southwest Stories presents Wonderful, Weird, and Worrisome Objects in Washington State’s Museums @ online
Mar 14 @ 6:00 pm

THURSDAY, MARCH 14TH: WORDS, WRITERS, SOUTHWEST STORIES PRESENTS:

Harriet Baskas
Wonderful, Weird, and Worrisome Objects in Washington State’s Museums

Most museums display no more than 10 percent of their holdings, often citing “not enough space” as the reason. But there are also a wide range of cultural, philosophical, political, environmental, historic, and even superstitious reasons why museums keep some objects from public view.

In this talk, explore a wide range of hidden objects found in the back rooms of museums in our state and around the country. Examples include a Spokane institution that holds Bing Crosby’s toupées and a museum in Lynden that’s home to a 150-year-old pickle. Museum staff will be on hand to answer questions, participate in our discussions, and unbox a few hidden treasures.

Harriet Baskas (she/her) is the author of nine books, including 111 Places in Seattle That You Must Not Miss and Hidden Treasures: What Museums Can’t or Won’t Show You. She writes about airports, museums, travel, and a variety of other topics for outlets such as NBC News, The Points Guy, and her own site, StuckatTheAirport.com. She produced a radio series on hidden museum artifacts that aired on National Public Radio. Baskas has a master’s in communications from the University of Washington.

Baskas lives in Seattle.

This event will be held virtually, via Zoom on March 14, 2024, at 6pm. A link to join this event will be emailed to registered participants on the day of the event.
