Green Stage Shakespeare in the Park
After a few seasons in Judkins Park, the folks at Green Stage will be brining two free summer shows to the Dr. Blanche S Lavizzo Ampitheater this August.
On August 9, you’ll be treated to the gender-bending comedy of mistaken identity of the Twelfth Night. August 16, the misadventures of errant knight Flastaff in the wooing of the Merry Wives of Windsor is performed.
Get more information at GreenStage.org
Both shows start at 7 pm. Taking a blanket is recommended.
Here’s hoping they’re not taking their eyes off the Promenade 23 redevelopment. Being in limbo isn’t good for the neighborhood.
The announcement is here in MarketWatch.
I spent the day trying to get the cornstarch chalk out the pal’s car I borrowed (bad idea) and being in a swoon looking at the many photos being posted online (good idea).
This is one of my favorites, though it was taken the day before the event. Of course, this evening as I was driving to the car wash, I saw three kids hopping up Union while their Mom waited at the bus stop. Until the rain comes, right?
Thank you notes are being drafted, photos are being sorted, buckets are being cleaned. Until we get all that done, here’s the CD News.
It’s almost here! The first bit of the 1.8 mile course across the Central District went down last night and tonight, all along the route, folks will be out getting ready for some serious Saturday fun.
We’re a bit slow sometimes getting news on the site, so the best place for the most current information is looking at Facebook at JacksonCommonsSeattle, following on Twitter (and we’re live tweeting the event at #HopXCD), and taking a look at the awesome Hopscotch CD website (thanks, Collective Self!).

For a while there hasn’t been a community council right in the center of the Central District. These groups are a key way the city distributes neighborhood improvement grants and gathers feedback for city projects, so it super exciting that the Garfield Community Council is restarting. This neighborhood council includes the north side of Jackson between MLK and 23rd Ave S.
This week they host Thomas Bangasser, owner of the building that houses the post office, as he chats about the potential changes at 23rd and Union.

Community Councils are one simple and direct way the you can influence the neighborhood.
Yep, you can tweet all the events at #HopXCD!
