It’s a big weekend in the neighborhood, including a 2 hour visit by Hizzoner himself:
Friday at 4pm: Central Youth and Family Services are hosting a “Hope, Not Hate” rally to promote peace among our recently unpeaceful youth.
Friday at 5pm: The Bottleneck (a CDNews sponsor) is hosting a special happy hour to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the end of prohibition. They’re preparing a special selection of cocktails from the 30s so you can party like your forefathers did.
Saturday at 11am: The mayor of our fine city will be visiting the Jackson St. corridor of our neighborhood to listen and meet with business owners, community leaders, and plain-old regular folks like you and me. It includes a Q&A at 12:40pm at the new CADA building at 18th & Jackson, so it’s your chance to get an answer that question that’s been burning inside of you for months or years.
Saturday at 5pm: The Leschi Community Council is hosting their Holiday Party at the Central Area Senior Center. They’ll have music, kids activities, and a lot of food. Sounds like a good chance to get out and meet your Leschi neighbors.
Monday at 7pm: Central Cinema is kicking off a 6-week study of the funny side of Cinematic Terribleness, hosted by the very talented David Schmader, writer of the Last Days column in The Stranger. His send-up of the movie Showgirls is the stuff of legend (and a special track of the Showgirls DVD), so this should be a very entertaining event. This week’s focus is Battlefield Earth.
