On the List | Egg hunts, Easter services, brunches, Earth Day plant exchange, Record Store Day

8604231928_7c096a6a82_b-600x400It’s a holiday and 4/20 weekend sure to be filled with magic Easter eggs on Capitol Hill.

egg-hunt-insta-400x400Egg hunts around the neighborhood are already underway. Saturday, you’ll find public invites to hunts in Cal Anderson and a hunt in Volunteer Park. “Babies go first.” Aw, shucks, that’d adorable.

There are lots more Easter happenings on the CHS Calendar including services, brunches… and CC Attle’s Third Annual Easter Bonnet Contest. You can also include a Good Friday Service in your plans and how about a Friday history talk on Seattle’s Lily Kempson & Ireland’s Easter Rising of 1916.

plant exchange 2013Next week also brings Earth Day — Thursday night, you can get a green-thumb start with a plant exchange at Miller Community Center:

Come celebrate springtime in Seattle with fellow gardeners in your community! Share plants, seeds, tools, yard art and knowledge. Everyone is welcome, especially new gardeners. Also, there will be a gardening activity for children.

Also Thursday at the April meeting of the Capitol Hill Community Council, discuss the minimum wage debate with neighbors and representatives at the table as city leaders try to pound out a plan to address income inequality in Seattle. You may need a glass of wine from this Vino Verite tasting before you wade in.

Saturday, meanwhile, is Record Store Day. Stop by Porchlight, Wall of Sound, Everyday Music, Platinum Records, Gruv or Spin Cycle to see what is spinning.
