of the

Columbia Citizens' WikLi


your Wikli-fix: tempting fate

In a week that combines Friday the 13th and Tax Day, this Wikli is carefully deliberating before it does anything at all. Don't let that stop you — there are new eateries, music, and local stories to spin.


Live locally.

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

annual meeting -- Rainier Valley Historical Society

Come and find your story at this year's annual meeting for members and friends:

Saturday, April 14, 10am
Lakewood Seward Park Community Club, 4916 S. Angeline Street

This year we will be featuring the stories behind our new book — Images of America: Rainier Valley, from Arcadia Publishing. Learn how the project pushed us to move out of our comfort level, identify gaps in our collection, and reach out to the community to fill those gaps. Also, view displays honoring some special anniversaries and preview our 2012 project, Remembering Garlic Gulch.

Columbia City Community Chorus spring session

Spring has finally sprung. The birds are singing and you can too, by joining your friends and neighbors in the Columbia City Community Chorus, directed by Kathleen Tracy. Our Spring Session runs from Tuesday, April 24 to June 12 (no rehearsal May 15). Lightness of spirit will be our theme for the seven week session, in keeping with the season. There's no audition and no singing experience required, just a desire to sing in harmony with others. Come join us.

There's also a Columbia City Children's Chorus — its spring session also starts April 24.

Taste International fundraiser dinner

On Sunday May 6, the students of Taste International gather their collective knowledge from this 14-week program and create a 5-course meal. Taking into consideration the fundamental aspects of the program, like culture and nutrition, as well as components more specific to professional cuisine, such as plating, course design, texture, and palate, these students will design and create a meal that will take you on a journey around the world.

tribute to Etta James, CD releases & more

Its a week of celebrations at Columbia City Theater. We'll be helping Bakelite 78 and Debbie Miller welcome their new records into the world with parties, we'll be celebrating the life and song of Etta James this Saturday with Rachel Mae and Side Saddle, and it's always a party when the fellas from Sons of Warren Oates come and sing on our stage. Take a look and click through for a listen, and we hope to see you at a show.
