There are three terrific events on the calendar for this Saturday evening, and all three of them are helping good neighborhood causes. The first is the Empty Bowls fundraiser for the Ballard Food Bank.
For a minimum donation of $10, you’ll select a unique, hand-crafted bowl created by a local artist and sit down for a dinner of soup and bread. When dinner’s over, you’ll take the bowl home. That’s this Saturday, 4 to 8 p.m. at the Ballard Community Center. Also on Saturday evening, the Ballard High School PTSA is throwing its annual dinner and auction at the Lake Union Armory at South Lake Union. And finally, the Phinney Neighborhood Association is holding its 19th Annual Wine Taste with ten tastes of wine, delicious hors d’oeuvres from Bill Drummond Catering and swinging jazz performed by Randy Rush’s band Deja Blue. It runs from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.
