You may have noticed the rain, thunder and lightning during your morning commute. We’re sure the first thing that came to mind with the crazy weather was “Oh no! What about the B-Town Beat from 6pm to 9pm tonight?” We’ll, this blog post is here to answer your questions and concerns.
The rain doesn’t change a thing!
Okay, it does change a few things but the fact is that the 4th monthly B-Town Beat Music & Art Walk is still going on as planned. Nearly all the events were already held inside and the few that weren’t have adjusted their plans to provide a safe and dry environment for everyone on the Beat. Phoenix Tea in Olde Burien, for example, would normally hosts a community canvas on the wall outside of their shop. Because of the potential rain they are going to move the canvas under a covered area but still offer everyone the chance to discover their inner Picasso. And if you need to warm up, they will, as always, be serving hot tea.
Phoenix Tea isn’t the only one serving hot beverages on the Beat. 909, Burien Press, Vino Bello, Mark Restaurant and Elliott Bay all serve a variety of hot beverages. The folks at Buriendaily.com are also working to provide hot chocolate at the open mic they are hosting from 6pm to 8pm inside the HomeTask building. All the proceeds from the hot chocolate will be donated to support upcoming B-Town Beat events.
So all of that to say that the rain really doesn’t change a thing. Tonight you have the opportunity to check out many great visual art and photography exhibits, listen to live music, play some music, read some poetry, paint, check out 25 different local businesses, and get to know your community a little bit better.
Grab your umbrella and a raincoat and get on the Beat! See you tonight!
