After a pandemic off-year, the Argosy Cruises Christmas Ship set sail again tonight – and its first stop was West Seattle, where a crowd lined the shore at Don Armeni Boat Ramp

They heard The Dickens Carolers sing holiday classics from on board – we recorded part of their 20-minute performance:

As listed in the WSB West Seattle Holiday Guide, the Christmas Ship will make two more West Seattle stops, both tomorrow night – 5:35 pm outside Salty’s on Alki (1936 Harbor Avenue SW; WSB sponsor), and 8:35 pm at Alki Beach Park, near the Bathhouse (60th/Alki), with a bonfire planned. That’s it for WS stops this year but you can see the entire season’s schedule here.

FOLLOWUP: Why West Marginal Way signal at Duwamish Longhouse isn’t activated yet https://westseattleblog.com/2021/11/followup-why-west-marginal-way-signal-at-duwamish-longhouse-isnt-activated-yet/ https://westseattleblog.com/2021/11/followup-why-west-marginal-way-signal-at-duwamish-longhouse-isnt-activated-yet/#comments Sat, 27 Nov 2021 02:50:31 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1021889

for this weekend’s Native Art Market and Holiday Gift Fair at the Duwamish Longhouse, crossing guards are still stopping traffic on West Marginal Way, because the newly installed signal isn’t ready yet. Earlier this month, SDOT told the West Seattle Bridge Community Task Force that they expected to turn on the signal in “late November,” if weather permitted the crosswalk to be painted. Turns out the weather got in the way of a different aspect of the project. We followed up on the signal statuw before the holiday and got this explanation:

Seattle Department of Transportation crews completed all of the initial work to install traffic signal poles and equipment in early November. The next step is for Seattle City Light to hook up power to the traffic signal so that we can turn it on. Due to the series of severe storms leading to widespread power outages, Seattle City Light has had to reschedule this step for the first weekend in December. Once the power is connected, SDOT crews are ready to take the final steps to unveil the signal lights and paint the crosswalks, which will require dry weather. We intentionally wait to do this until the signal is ready to be turned on in order to avoid confusing travelers.

This signal is technically temporary, with a permanent one to follow.

If you bring five non-perishable food items for the West Seattle Food Bank, you get $5 off the tree price.

They’re also selling wreaths, as well as poinsettias from nearby Seattle Lutheran High SchoolPar.

CONTINUING THIS WEEKEND: Duwamish Longhouse Native Art Market and Holiday Gift Fair https://westseattleblog.com/2021/11/happening-now-duwamish-longhouse-native-art-market-and-holiday-gift-fair-day-1/ https://westseattleblog.com/2021/11/happening-now-duwamish-longhouse-native-art-market-and-holiday-gift-fair-day-1/#respond Fri, 26 Nov 2021 22:31:44 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1021867

At the Duwamish Longhouse Native Art Market and Holiday Gift Fair, you can find ornaments to decorate your tree, and/or gifts to put under it.

The work above is by Seciwa’s Southwest Native Jewelry and Crafts, one of this year’s vendors, spotlighting “the people and crafts from the Pueblo of Zuni,” described in a flyer as “the largest of the 20 ‘Pueblo’ tribes in New Mexico and Arizona.” The gift fair is a place to learn as well as to browse and buy.

It was also a popular shopping stop while we were there in late morning, with a line to get in since capacity was capped. But you have plenty of time – until 5 pm today, and again 10 am-5 pm tomorrow and Sunday.

Parking is across the street in the Seattle Public Utilities lot – and there are crossing guards to stop West Marginal Way traffic so you can safely get across. (The temporary signal and crosswalk are not ready yet – more on that in a separate story later.) P.S. You can also visit the exhibits in the Longhouse Cultural Center while you’re there, and the gift shop is open,

One week ago, after Mayor Durkan‘s visit to Husky Deli, we reported that we had talked there with SDOT director Sam Zimbabwe, who told us to “expect some good news right after Thanksgiving” regarding West Seattle Bridge repairs. That news is scheduled for Monday morning (November 29th), when he and the mayor will brief media reps at what the announcement calls an event “marking the start of (the) final phase of West Seattle Bridge repairs.” Contractor Kraemer North America. which also handled the stabilization work on the bridge last year, has begun on-site preparation work, SDOT said last week.

PHOTOS: First-ever Festival of Trees at Brookdale Admiral Heights https://westseattleblog.com/2021/11/photos-first-ever-festival-of-trees-at-brookdale-admiral-heights/ https://westseattleblog.com/2021/11/photos-first-ever-festival-of-trees-at-brookdale-admiral-heights/#respond Fri, 26 Nov 2021 00:07:15 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1021831

Another first-ever West Seattle holiday event is under way – the Brookdale Admiral Heights Festival of Trees. Decorated, donated trees are all around the lobby at 2326 California SW.

Some are traditional, and some are whimsical – this one seems to have trapped the Grinch:

The one below has a Mardi Gras theme, in keeping with its donor, nearby restaurant Circa, whose menu includes New Orleans specialties:

Other donors include longtime WSB sponsor Illusions Hair Design – cards will be up soon so you know which local business or organization donated which tree. And that matters, because in two weeks, they’ll all be auctioned off for charity:

You can visit the Brookdale AH lobby 8 am-8 pm daily to see the trees until December 9th – that night, 6-8 pm, they’ll have a gala auction, fundraising for the Rotary Club of West Seattle 360 for Good campaign. No admission charge but please RSVP for the gala, 206-512-7730 or tmeade@brookdale.com. P.S. If you can, bring nonperishable food when you visit – there’s a West Seattle Food Bank bin by the front door.

WEST SEATTLE HOLIDAY SCENE: The Hall at Fauntleroy’s free takeaway Thanksgiving dinners https://westseattleblog.com/2021/11/happening-now-the-hall-at-fauntleroys-free-takeaway-thanksgiving-dinners/ https://westseattleblog.com/2021/11/happening-now-the-hall-at-fauntleroys-free-takeaway-thanksgiving-dinners/#comments Thu, 25 Nov 2021 20:30:55 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1021822

Dating back more than 20 years, the family-run Hall at Fauntleroy has welcomed hundreds to an elegant sit-down Thanksgiving dinner – free. This year, though, is different. With the help of 50 volunteers, The Hall at Fauntleroy is feeding hundreds a takeout dinner – but otherwise “as traditional as you can get,” with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and other holiday classics (pumpkin lasagna is the vegetarian option). Donated socks are available too (but they’ve already handed out all the blankets they had).

They started curbside pickup (and limited deliveries) at 11 am and by noon had already served up 300 dinners, with 110+ left to go, They requested RSVPs but at this point can also serve people who just show up – while the food lasts (or 2 pm, whichever comes first).

The Hall at Fauntleroy is at the south end of the historic Fauntleroy Schoolhouse, 9131 California SW. They had hoped to serve a takeaway Thanksgiving last year but due to the state of the pandemic at the time, they had to cancel it altogether.

P.S. If you missed out on this, the West Seattle Eagles are serving a free sit-down holiday dinner to everyone who shows up – 2 to 5 pm at 4426 California SW.

Live theater returns to ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery in The Junction https://westseattleblog.com/2021/11/live-theater-returns-to-artswest-playhouse-gallery-in-the-junction/ https://westseattleblog.com/2021/11/live-theater-returns-to-artswest-playhouse-gallery-in-the-junction/#comments Thu, 25 Nov 2021 07:04:11 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1021761 (WSB photos. Above, Rheanna Atendido at a rehearsal for ‘We’ve Battled Monsters Before’)

By Tracy Record
West Seattle Blog editor

Tonight, a public preview performance debuted “We’ve Battled Monsters Before” at ArtsWest (WSB sponsor) in The Junction.

Even before the lights went up, ArtsWest managing director Laura Lee was already imagining how emotional a moment that would be.

It’s been a long 20 months, even more uncertain and unnerving for the arts than for some other disciplines and businesses. ArtsWest was about to open “St. Joan” in March 2020 – had just presented the preview, in fact – when pandemic-safety orders shut down many businesses and venues, including theirs.

“St. Joan” never opened, and ArtsWest stayed closed. They thought, Lee recalled, that the shutdown might last “a few months, and then we’ll get going again.”

Instead … 20 months. But the light shone at tunnel’s end a half-year ago, when they were able to make the decision to proceed with a full six-play season, announced in June.

And now – after three weeks of rehearsals – the world premiere of “We’ve Battled Monsters Before” takes the stage. Pandemic theater is a little different, of course. No food or drink in the seats, so face coverings can stay on. (You can have a pre-show drink in the gallery.) This show, and most of the others this season, are performed “in the round,” which maximizes theater space and openness, You can choose to access the program on your phone via a QR code if you prefer not to have a printed copy. And it’s a two-person musical, which makes it easier to carry out appropriate distancing onstage, between the actors and between them and their audience. The actor-musicians are playwright Justin Huertas as Diego and Rheanna Atendido as Adarna, brother and sister in a truly legendary family. Both are ArtsWest regulars. The story is described as “loosely adapted from the 16th century Filipino epic poem ’Ibong Adarna’,” and Lee says Huertas, who is Filipino-American, is excited to finally play a character who is too.

(Justin Huertas and Rheanna Atendido at a rehearsal for ‘We’ve Battled Monsters Before’ with artistic director Mathew Wright)

To get to this point – how did ArtsWest survive the long closure? “Amazing donors,” Lee says. Federal help, too. But also, some difficult belt-tightening. She and artistic director Mathew Wright had to lay off the rest of the staff. (They started rehiring in September.) And they cut expenses. It also helped that ArtsWest owns the building free and clear, no debt. “No one can kick us out,” declares Lee, who’s been managing director for nine years.

She says they worked not just to come back, but to “come back stronger.” In fact, Lee adds, subscriptions are outpacing where they were pre-pandemic. But all in all, she exults, “It’s just great to have art back in people’s lives.”

“We’ve Battled Monsters Before” opens Friday (November 26), and performances are scheduled through December 26th, running Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm (with a slightly different schedule Christmas week). You can get tickets online. If you’re not comfortable yet with in-person theater, Lee says a professionally recorded performance of the 90-minute musical will be available online soon.

FOLLOWUP: Southbound 26th SW reopens https://westseattleblog.com/2021/11/followup-southbound-26th-sw-reopens/ https://westseattleblog.com/2021/11/followup-southbound-26th-sw-reopens/#comments Thu, 25 Nov 2021 05:48:55 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1021783

Thanks for the tips (including Mark, who also sent the photo): Southbound 26th SW has reopened between SW Barton and SW Roxbury. That’s the first time in almost four months that the stretch of 26th has been open both ways. It’s been rebuilt – one direction at a time – to better withstand the constant pounding it takes from buses. It’s been a years-long problem, with neighbors complaining their homes shook when buses passed on the flimsier pavement.
