If you’re looking for a little “you time,” or need a few hours to catch up on that book you’ve been meaning to read, well it appears that Bainbridge culture is conspiring to give you what you need.

On Friday, the Bainbridge Island Genealogical Society (BIGS) will meet at the LDS church on Bainbridge Island from 10 a.m. to noon. Guest speaker, Deanna Egeland Dowell will be speaking on “Finding Social Security, Naturalization, and Homestead Applications.”

Free to members, a $5 donation is suggested for nonmembers. For more information go to or call 206-780-8009.

On Saturday, we would have told you to get over to Spacecraft to catch Josiah Johnson and Planes on Paper, but that show is sold out. We also would have recommended checking out Uncle Bonsai at the Treehouse Café, but that show was canceled. Maybe head over there anyway for a pint and some pizza?

On Sunday, weather permitting, head on over to the recently renovated waterfront park to enjoy some fun in the (hopefully) sun. Renovations to the park just finished on Wednesday, so hurry up and check it out!

After enjoying the hard work of the city to improve the waterfront park, sit back relax and let the week ahead wash over you, because time and tide, they wait for no man.

The Bainbridge Blab is your one-stop spot to get the 411 on all things 98110. From South Beach to Agate Passage, Battle Point to Rolling Bay, we’ve got the straight skinny on Bainbridge Island: the latest chatter, babble and burble. News, too. Have a tip or a comment for the Blab? Email us at
