Salwt is pronounced like salat

The Seventh Elect Church in Israel was located at 7028 9th Ave NW in Ballard. The church required that members embrace a celibate and vegetarian lifestyle, and men were forbidden to cut their beards and hair¹. It is unclear whether they were permitted to drink coffee or ride bicycles. Let’s make coffee and toast in their honor at 9am on Friday 18th August 2017 at their former address. Here’s a map.

You awake…

You awake from a deep and dreamless sleep. Everything seems very… hazy. You can’t even remember the last time you attended a meeting of the En Plein Air Coffee Club. It’s as if you stopped getting the emails, but no, that can’t be. It must be all in your head.

EPACC will convene at 9am on Friday 4th August 2017 at a tiny parklet in lower Wallingford. Here’s a map.

A Newspaper the People Read, Love, and Respect

Prentis Frazier was a prominent Seattle businessman and frequent contributor to Seattle’s weekly black-oriented newspaper The Northwest Enterprise.

Prentis Frazier was an active member of the Republican Party and a member and generous contributor to the First African Methodist Episcopal Church. He always lived in the Central Area, residing the last ten years of his life at 410 23rd Avenue E. When the gully behind his home was designated a mini-park, relatives and neighbors recommended it be named for him because of his contribution to the community as a philanthropist and business entrepreneur. In 1983, the Seattle Parks and Recreation Department changed the name of the 0.3 acre Harrison Street Mini Park to the Prentis Frazier Park.HistoryLink

EPACC will convene at 8am on Friday 20th January 2017 at Prentis I. Frazier park. Here’s a map.

ANYTHING IS A LEGITIMATE AREA OF INVESTIGATION

Because it will be quite cold, EPACC will meet at 8am on Friday 13th January 2017 inside the Washington State Convention Center on level 2, at the south end of the building in the “International Meeting Place” near Juicy Cafe. You can’t bring your bike inside, nor can you use a camp stove. However, we are adjacent to Freeway Park if you need to step outside. We will be able to observe and discuss Jenny Holzer’s artwork Selections from Truism, Living and Survival Series. Says the WSCC: “Jenny Holzer’s work excerpts text from three of her early series, addressing power, violence, war, and death with succinct statements on LED signs.”

Here’s a map. Probably the easiest way to get there is to enter the convention center on Pike Street and take the escalators to level 2.
