Neighborhood news roundup: spa services, child dance classes, theater and literature, crime

Here’s a roundup of good and bad news from the neighborhood.

Ladywell’s Vitality Spa & Sauna, 8538 1st Ave. NW in the Piper Village complex, next to Mud Bay, plans to open for business on Saturday, Feb. 9.

Xochil Squaglia will be joining Varnish salon at 7407 Greenwood Ave. N. on Feb. 1 to provide massage therapy, nail care, and skin care. She is offering introductory specials of a $40 massage (one hour), and a $10 brow wax.

The contemporary Greenwood home of Alison Pember and Jason Hansen was featured in Sunday’s Pacific Magazine in The Seattle Times.

Nurturing Pathways still has room in some of its winter classes (and they’ll prorate the cost since classes started earlier this month). Nurturing Pathways is a creative dance program for babies and young children up to 4 years old, to encourage motor and brain development.

Book-It Repertory Theatre and Naked City Brewery & Taphouse, 8564 Greenwood Ave. N., are hosting “Write Like I Do” from 5:30-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 13, as a benefit for nonprofit writing and tutoring center 826 Seattle. Described as “From the Page to the Stage: How to transform great literature into great theatre,” the workshop will explain how to adapt a novel into a stage script.

We break down the process in this interactive workshop with Jane Jones, (Founder and Co-Artistic Director of Book It) and Kevin McKeon, (the adaptor of Book-It’s acclaimed ‘Anna Karenina’) and consider the writer/director relationship and the importance of collaboration.

Participants are welcome to buy food and/or drinks from Naked City, who are hosting this event; table service will be provided throughout the workshop. 826 Seattle will provide paper and writing implements and will offer a 25% discount at their Greenwood Space Travel Supply Company store (day of workshop only).

Tickets are $10 through  Brown Paper Tickets.

And in continuing crime news, Caitlyn tells us someone stole the contents of a package off her front porch Tuesday, near Fremont Avenue North and North 84th Street, then left the packaging in the front yard. She says she’s surprised the thief was bold enough to commit the crime while her two dogs barked.

And Drew says his car was broken into Monday night near Fremont Avenue North and North 81st Street. A suspect was seen running a block away, then jumping into a car driven by someone else. He says the car was a white, four-door, possibly a Toyota, with a license plate beginning with “A.”
