16th Annual Kids Bike Swap!

Bike Works will hold its 16th Annual Kids' Bike Swap on Saturday, May 12, 2012, from 10am - 4pm at Rainier Community Center, 4600 38th Ave S.

This event is an opportunity for families to trade in a bike their child has outgrown for a larger bike – just in time for the summer riding season! The Kids' Bike Swap helps to facilitate the flow of affordable bicycles within the community and keeps fully functional bikes out of our local landfills.

How the Kids' Bike Swap works:

Celebrate art and diversity at the Gallery

Columbia City Gallery is pleased to present two simultaneous exhibits May 2 – June 17, 2012. In the Main Gallery, Connections highlights new work by gallery artists Jacqui Beck, Ellen Hochberg, Shari Kaufman and Joan Robbins. In the Guest Gallery, we present Represent 98118: A Self Portrait of a Culturally Rich Community. This project documents what it means to be “at home” among many different cultures. Using photography, neighbors share their experiences living, working, playing, studying, and worshiping in the 98118 zip code, determined in the 2010 census to be one of the most diverse zip codes in the nation.

The artists' reception for both exhibits is on Saturday, May 5, 5 – 8p. This event is free and open to the public.

Columbia City Farmers Market

Opening Day of our 14th season is this Wednesday May 2nd! The Columbia City Farmers Market takes place every Wednesday from 3-7pm on Edmunds St just off of Rainier in our beautiful Columbia City.

Local farmers share seasonal fruit and veggies, fish and meat, and egg and cheese to complement the hand-crafted sweet and savory treats and staples also available at the market. Plus… music, kids activities and chef demos too.

Here's what's happening at this week's market.

Meet author Amy Waldman

Come meet Amy Waldman and join in a discussion between readers and writer at the Columbia Library on Saturday May 5 at 4pm.

The Washington Center for the Book at The Seattle Public Library invites everyone to take part in Seattle Reads The Submission, a project designed to deepen engagement in literature through reading and discussion.

When a jury chooses a walled garden as the design for a ground zero memorial, they discover that its creator is a young Muslim American architect. They know their selection will unleash a firestorm of controversy and they are proven right. In the conflicted response of the jury and the public, The Submission asks hard questions about the American values of tolerance, diversity and community.

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.
