Coming Up: Special Election, Kayaks, Wine

Quiet weekend on the Island with winter struggling to be itself: we’re in for a warming trend this week.

We’re in for a few other things this week too:

Special Election Tuesday Feb 3

vote-special-election-king-county-feb-3We’re voting for Director of Elections this Tuesday in an all-mail ballot. I’m voting for Sherrill Huff because she has the job now and by all accounts seems to be doing a good job. She’s also endorsed by 35 County Auditors, an amazing feat which means she must be good at keeping to the straight & narrow. No one could food 35 auditors. Location: the mail.

And there’s a wine event on Thursday. Scott Paul Wines Burgundy & Willamette Valley Wine Tasting, $10. Here’s what they’ll be tasting.
