Columbia Citizens' WikLi


your Wikli-fix: eyes on the street

Does it seem like we're seeing an uptick in local crime? Many Citizens are focused on recent violence in the neighborhood, and they're looking to do something about it. Increased patrols might be a solution. Another is to make sure our streets are well used by the Citizens who live and work here.

All in favor? The eyes have it.


Live locally.

Celebrate International Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day

Back by popular demand, it's time to celebrate International Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day! The southeast Seattle celebration will be at Full Tilt in Columbia City, Saturday, Feb 4, 10:30am-1:00pm
Where: Full Tilt Ice Cream, 5041 Rainier Ave S

Once again there will be Ice Cream contests for adults and kids. Start thinking now for best ice cream headline, limerick, and of course best ice cream flavor (the winning flavor may appear on the Full Tilt menu!).

Free Waffles! Prizes! Games! Deliciousness! Costumes optional.

Bring your favorite topping to share, and money to buy your own scoop.

freaky & beautiful cabaret and more

It's your chance this Wednesday to sing on our main stage: we're moving karaoke from The Bourbon to the back room, under the bright lights. Singing starts at 8pm and it's free.

Thursday, Saturday and Sunday it's your chance to discover a favorite new band. Thursday we've got a trio of talented young indie rock bands, Saturday we've got the "anti-folk" of The Foghorns and the smokey sounds of James Apollo, and on Sunday we've got Beatles-inspired pop from Kathryn Mostow. Friday, call a baby sitter and enjoy one of two special shows with Reckless Revue an evening dedicated to "beautiful freaks" in a show that promises to "amaze and terrify."

neighborhood public safety meeting

Please join the Lakewood Seward Park Community Association and the Southeast Seattle Crime Prevention Council on Monday February 6 at 7pm at the LSPCClubhouse on 50th and Angeline.

While we called the meeting in response to three recent violent events in the otherwise quiet business community of Lakewood Seward Park, it's open to all concerned about the increase of crime throughout the Seattle's south end.
