Depave! – March 22

February 28th, 2014 Comments off

Look at the new courtyard! The shaded area near the lower left corner – in front of HPIC. Underneath those pavers on the drawing is the asphalt that needs to be ripped up and taken away. Bring your muscles and whatever you need to vent on Depave Day and help us hoist chunks of asphalt outta here. The asphalt will be prepped, scored and ready to rumble into a big Dumpster that will cart it away. Starting around 10am till however long it takes. And yes, there will be beer.

Corner Bar this Friday – November 1st

Día de Muertos at Corner Bar!


Friday, November 1st, doors open at 6 pm.
All ages 6-9 pm
21+ after 9

Draft beer, wine and special cocktail Chili-infused Margarita, as well as Mexican Tequila shots.

DJ Rich brings the Funk from 6-7:30 pm, then Accidental Rhino will perform vintage acoustic jazz from the 1920′s and 30′s!

In the spirit of Día de Muertos, we will have an Altar de muertos upon which you may place a small memento of someone who has passed that you would like to remember. This can be a (small) photo, a poem, or just their name. Between sets of the band (8:30 or so) people can come up to the mic and share a short (30 seconds) remembrance. This can be merely saying their name, a humorous story, or whatever you would like others to know about this person. It should be a celebration. Barry, our master of ceremonies, will read something for you, if you desire.

Parental Guidance – Kids welcome until 9pm.  There are toys and games set up on tables. Parents, please be aware of your child’s activities.  Chasing games are discouraged.

Need some garden inspiration? Help plant HPIC’s Rain Garden June 1, starting at 10am. This is the beginning of HPIC’s effort to soften our parking lot while helping to keep storm overflow from polluting the Duwamish River and Puget Sound. Every little bit helps! King County RainWise will be there – with the RainWise program now in our neighborhood, you could get up to a 100% reimbursement for the installation of a rain garden or cistern.
