Your Weekend Plans

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.

Weekend Movie at Central Cinema (a CDNews sponsor): Edward Scissorhands, showing daily at 7pm & 9pm

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.

  1. If you want more partying Sat evening, when you’re done with the Leschi Community Council party, head over to the Samarya Center’s holiday party and annual fundraiser, from 7-10pm, at the Samarya Center on Yesler near 18th. The Samarya Center is our neighborhood non-profit yoga studio, where the mission is to make yoga accessible to all. Come meet your neighbors, grab some free food and drink, bid on our great auction items, and have a blast!
