Columbia City Farmers (street) Market

Now through the end of October we'll be setting up in the street; every Wednesday from 3-7pm.

We'll have your favorite farmers bring fresh goodies straight from the land, sea and pasture!

This week at the market:

Hope to see you there!

hot entertainment and cool beverages

We've got lots of hot entertainment and cool beverages at the Columbia City Theater and Bourbon Bar.

Wednesday nights are karaoke in the Bourbon Bar, and this Thursday, Mamma Casserole (Michelle Smith from the Comet Tavern and Noise for the Needy) will be spinning records. Friday and Saturday we've got great bands in the theater. Friday — appropriately enough — is Friday Mile's last show; while Curtains for You and Ravenna Woods take the stage on Saturday. Hope to see you!

looking for 1-2 bd rental

Hi, a friend is looking for a 1-2 bed/1 bath rental in the South End. Columbia City, Hillman City, Seward Park, Beacon Hill is preferred. Short term lease is OK. Mother-in-law or cottage is super great. Condo OK.

She doesn't smoke and doesn't own any pets. She's in her mid 40s and is as responsible as they come. (She's actually a landlord herself but wants to try out the South End before she buys — so help me convince her!)

meditation group

I wonder if folks in the community are interested in getting together (at my house initially) to meditate together. I practice Vipassana mindfulness meditation from the Theravadan Buddhist tradition. I've been sitting for 2 1/2 years, have read lots of wonderful books and articles on Buddhist psychology and meditation practice, and go to a weekly class on Cap. Hill Friday mornings.

I'd love to start a small group here in the 'hood with like minded neighbors and friends.

RV Heritage Parade & Summer Streets Party

Saturday, August 21 from 11am to 3pm

The Rainier Valley Heritage Parade celebrates life in America's most diverse zip code — 98118! Summer Streets Party follows the parade — Rainier Avenue will be open for people to play, walk, bike, shop, dance, relax and eat from S Brandon to S Alaska!

About the event:

  • The parade happens every year (this the 18th year)
  • Summer Streets helps people imagine what life could be like if fewer people drove and more people walk, bike, ride transit and shop locally
  • People can walk, have picnics, practice sports, ride their bikes safely and without the noise of cars
