May 19 is Bike Everywhere Day!

From Kaffeeklatsch

Bike Everywhere Day!

May is commonly known as Bike Everywhere month in Seattle – the time of year where saddles get dusted off, and chains get lubricated for the summer. More importantly though, May 19th is Bike Everywhere Day! As in years past, Kaffeeklatsch Seattle and Lake City Future First are partnering with Cascade Bicycle, and Performance Bicycle to create the Lake City Celebration Station. This year, we are going to one-up the game; we are partnering with Lake City Public Library, Seattle Farmers Markets, Seattle Department of Neighborhoods and Lake City Greenways to create a one-of-a-kind event to greet our neighborhood cyclists.
Molly from our very own Lake City Farmers Market will be handing out Farmers Market Coupons to Helmet Carrying Bicyclists. Lake City Farmers Market Opens June 8th. There will also be a raffle….Enter to win a market tote or water bottle, as well as a yet to be named prize from Cascade Bicycle…
If you would like to volunteer at the event, please contact Justus Jessen at
Bring your bikes, because Something is Happening in Lake City.

Bellydancers unite! Lake City Community Center will be host to the Waking Persephone Festival October 14-16, 2016. Workshops and shows all weekend! Share this post with all your bellydancin’ friends!


What is Waking Persephone (WP)?

It is a bellydance event celebrating the dark and the unusual through workshops, performances, live music, vending, discussion, and more.

 When is WP?
October 13th-16th, 2016

 Where does WP take place?
In 2012 and 2013, WP took place in beautiful historic Providence, Rhode Island.  In 2014, Waking Persephone moved to the Greater Seattle, Washington area – from one coast to another – and a great time to visit beautiful Seattle!

 The main event (workshops, Gala Shows, vending, etc) will take place at the historic Lake City Community Center, 12531 28th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98125. Our pre-festival meet & greet, called Motif, takes place at El Norte Lounge, just north of the LCCC. Our Sunday night afterparty is the Underworld Ball – featuring live music and much more – and takes place at Hale’s Palladium Theater.

 How do I get there?

Seattle is easily accessible by planes, trains, boats, and automobiles. Cause, it’s Seattle.

Flying in? Choose Sea-Tac Airport (SEA). Both the LCCC and Hale’s are easily accessible by car and public transportation.

 What activities will there be?

There will be an array of workshop offerings by amazing instructors, including master classes and discussion panels. There will be shows featuring the instructor staff, applied performers, special guests, and live music, and more. In addition there is an amazing bazaar featuring jewelry, costuming, artwork, henna, photography, and much more!
