    Thanks to our friends at West Woodland Neighbors for information and pictures from Saturday’s third annual NW 65th Street Clean-Up. Volunteers collected several bags of trash, including a lot of cigarette butts, to beautify the area.


    Café Bambino provided volunteers with coffee, and Stock provided free pastries. Liza White, neighbor and owner of Four Legged Friends, has adopted NW 65th as part of the City of Seattle’s Adopt-A-Street program.

    Flying Bike Coop Brewery hosting fundraiser for G&O Family Cyclery on Thursday

    May 2nd, 2016 by Doree

    Flying Bike Cooperative Brewery, 8570 Greenwood Ave. N., and Cascade Bicycle Club are hosting a fundraiser for G&O Family Cyclery, which was heavily damaged in the March 9 natural gas explosion and has temporarily moved a block north, to 8554-1/2 Greenwood Ave.

    The fundraiser is from 3-10 p.m. on Thursday, May 5. One dollar from every pint, schooner and growler sold will support G&O’s rebuilding efforts. G&O Family Cyclery is trying to find a new permanent location in the neighborhood.

    “We want the new shop to be a place that reflects the love and support that we’ve felt since this happened. We never want to take that for granted,” G&O co-owner Davey Oil said in a prepared statement. “It’s a very touching thing for Flying Bike and Cascade to give over this spotlight to us. We really appreciate it and can’t wait to party with everyone at the fundraiser.”

    You can still donate directly to G&O through their GoFundMe account.

    Control is an illusion… Where’s the remote? Retired college professor Emily Linder summons her daughters to share her recent realization: she knows the precise time of her death. In this quirky comedic drama one eccentric family will amuse and surprise you with their preoccupations, recognitions and realizations.

    Director Nathan Kessler-Jeffrey said, “Richard Strand [the playwright] captures a family dealing with the new challenges of an aging parent and the old rivalries of competitive siblings. This story’s honesty and hilarity will not only touch mothers and daughters and caregivers of aging parents, but everyone who has dealt with the difficulty of growing up and watching the world change drastically around them.”

    Don’t forget that starting tonight (Thursday), the Alaskan Way Viaduct will be closed for about two weeks as a precaution while Bertha tunnels underneath it.

    Transit will be rerouted, so check Metro’s Service Advisories page for more info. You also should sign up for Metro’s transit alerts to get text messages about reroutes.

    On-ramps to State Route 99/Alaskan Way Viaduct will begin closing at 10 p.m. tonight, with the road fully closed to all traffic at 12:01 a.m. Friday between South Spokane Street and the south end of the Battery Street Tunnel.
