It's the week before Christmas. Who has time to read blog posts? Not me. Hence, there are bite-sized blips below for our overwhelmed December brains.
It is in Marina Park this year in case you haven't spotted it. Yes, it's the same park you will be doing the Polar Plunge on Jan 1 at 1pm. Be there.
Common Folk Co in Kirkland Park Place (soon-to-be Kirkland Urban) is clearing out all inventory right now. Their official closing date is 12/24 but they are hoping to get rid of everything before then. There's not much left, but they're practically giving stuff away at garage sale prices in case you were wondering.
Geoffrey Castle, a local electric violist who was recently awarded the 2015 Champion of the Arts by Kirkland Performance Center, has a holiday CD called "Noel: A Celtic Christmas." He has a pretty a cool spin on some familiar holiday tunes. Great last minute gift. There may even be a few tickets left for his holiday concerts at KPC on 12/18 and 12/19 if you hurry!

Rikki Rikki- decided to stay open a little bit longer than the end of the year. Went in for a farewell Sakitini (always delicious) and now they are staying open until Feb 20th. More Sakitinis for all of us! And their website says they got voted "Best Asian Cusine" (their typo not mine, for once) six years in a row 2010-15.
Kirkland Park Place Theater is having a final viewing party of the classic "Last Picture Show" on Monday Jan 11th with the movie starting promptly at 6:30. Proceeds from the movie to the Kirkland Chamber, KDA, and Kirkland Performance Center.
