Hurray, Hurray, the first of May, outdoor (you fill in the blank) begins today!
That’s right – conventional wisdom says that all things outdoor become a bit more possible in the month of May. Wallingford has a host of opportunities (indoor or out) for you this weekend!
Friday, May 7
8p – Seattle Composers’ Salon @ the Good Shepherd Center
The Seattle Composers’ Salon fosters the development, performance and appreciation of new music by regional composers and performers. At bi-monthly, informal presentations, the Salon features finished works, previews, and works in progress. Composers, performers, and audience members gather in a casual setting that allows for experimentation and discussion. Everyone is welcome!
5P – 7p – Wine Tasting at City Cellars
City Cellars holds “drop-in”, informal, evening tastings each Friday from 5-7 p.m. Tastings include a flight of up to three wines, and cost $3-$5. Stop by the store or call for information on the tastings.
Live Music at Kate’s (and Jameson for three bucks)
“Kate’s has been my second living room for about three years now. I became a regular the moment I stepped through the door and Kate’s husband poured me a perfect pint of Guinness. From then on out I had a perfect pint waiting for me, regardless of who was working, before I even took my stool at the bar.”
Saturday, May 8th
The University District Farmers Market is Seattle’s oldest and largest “farmers-only” neighborhood market. Founded in 1993, this Saturday market offers a place for more than 50 Washington State farmers to sell their fresh produce and quality products each week. The market is now open year-round, with a great selection of fall and winter produce, eggs, meats, poultry, seafood, baked goods, preserves and more throughout the holiday season and chilly winter days. (This will need to tide us over until May 19th, when the Wallingford Farmer’s Market opens!)
10a – Computer, TV and Cell Phone Collection at John Stanford International School
Also happening at JSIS on Saturday, May 8th from 10 am to 3pm is a Computer, TV and Cell Phone Collection Event. Drop off is on 5th Avenue NE, the east border of the school grounds.
3p – Professor Banjo! At OmCulture!
Paul Silveria is Professor Banjo — a lively, banjo-pickin’ troubadour, square dance caller and teacher who specializes in family-friendly bluegrass.

All weekend – “Mid-August Lunch” at the Guild 45th!
“Excellent. An amazing performance the director got out of the 3 women actresses. Fantastic, funny and original and a little heartbreaking at the end.” –A Moviegoer
