A few highlights from the North Bend Jazz Walk.  This event, sponsored by Boxley's (voted one of the Best Jazz Clubs in the World by Downbeat Magazine 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014!), and the Boxley Music Fund ( a non-profit organization (501c3) established to support live music programs for performance and education within the Greater Snoqualmie Valley). 

This year's Jazz Walk featured nearly three dozen bands/performers -- including many of inter/national renown -- playing at 22 different venues around downtown North Bend.  On top of that, it was a beautiful night -- the temperatures were mild and the rain -- miraculously -- stayed away.  

This is really a unique event, which we're very lucky to have here in the valley.  And where else could you enjoy quality, live music performed at a burger joint, a mountain climbing shop, or a purveyor of bar stools and dinettes?  Of course, there were many more 'conventional' venues as well.

The purpose of this community is to share information about local events.  While the focus is on free or low-cost events that are community and family-oriented, it's not limited to that per se.  The idea is to support the community broadly, which includes local businesses that depend on the community and give back to it.

Cast Iron Cookware  - 
 
I recently purchased this old 'camp box' on Craigslist.  The guy that sold it to me said his dad had made it, and it hadn't been used in years.  It came with a variety of stuff, including three old cast iron pans and one skillet that doubles as a top.  The top/bottom set nests perfectly and is clearly labeled 'Wagner' and '1408'. All four pieces are in very good physical shape -- no rust, no pits or cracks.  The seasoning seems to be largely intact on the two unlabeled pieces, and on the interior of the Wagner fry pan.  It's smooth, black and glassy. The exterior of the Wagner looks a bit rough, as you can see. The seasoning on the skillet portion, however, is pretty scratched up.  

My question is this:  Do you think the seasoning on the skillet is salvageable, or should I just bite the bullet and re-do it from scratch? 

Thanks for your thoughts.

unless Grandma gave it to you, you will not  know what was cooked in it and how long ago...It is always safest to clean and start over!

Outdoor Performances  - 
 
Night On A Dark Trail (NOADT) is a 501c3 org sponsored event that occurs just before Halloween every year.  Proceeds are donated to the Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank.  Featuring a growing number of “scary scenes”, guests walk down a trail in the evening and enjoy the antics of volunteers from our local communities who come together for a good cause and to share some fun acting performing for the guests.  Most of the volunteer actors are middle & high school kids, but also adults, all trained & supported by former or current professional actors, musicians, costumers, makeup artists, and of course donations from the community for materials and crafting the building of the “stage sets”.   NOADT is always in need of volunteers for the Scenes, building sets, tour guides, working the ticket booth, and much more.  More info at:

+Bruce Sullivan no problems. A refreshing change to be thanked for pointing that out. Most of the time it just results is either abuse or the person silently deleting their post.
