Columbia Citizens' WikLi

This is a tri-Wikli.

In solidarity with self-preserving turkeys everywhere, we're making ourselves scarce — we'll see you on the other side of Thanksgiving.

Nightfall in midafternoon? That just ain't right. It's sending this Wikli scrambling for its vitamin D supplements. Find out where your neighbors are converging — mostly warm and dry.

This one's a tri-Wikli. We'll see you again on the other side of Thanksgiving — enjoy your turkey.


Live locally.

You can post a calendar event — here's how.

Andaluz happy anniversary happy hour

Please help us celebrate seven years in Columbia City. Every Friday from 5pm to 8pm everything in the store is 20 percent off through Black Friday. Also enjoy complimentary champagne and snacks.

We'll also be hosting a tarot reader if you want to see what the holidays will bring you. This is an excellent chance to get some early Christmas shopping done, get a little discount and have some fun doing it.

Monday, November 14th, 6-8pm, 3709 S Ferdinand St

In response to heightened awareness of road and transportation tensions, the Mayor's Office is conducting a series of public Road Safety Summit meetings. Here at Bike Works, we like to talk transportation shop. We recognize that the three official meetings are potentially difficult for Southeast Seattleites to get to, so we're hosting one for you! We want to hear from each and every one of you.
