May 8th and 9th: What a Weekend!

Can you say "junk in the trunk"???

Skylark kicks off a happening weekend of Mother's Day festivities and TWO benefit shows by joining West Seattle Yard Sale Day!

The West Seattle Community Garage Sale is in its 6th year, and this community is not playing around. On Saturday, May 8th, there are approximately 200 yard sales for you to scavenge through, all referenced via an online map or an 8-page a 12-page .pdf (!!).

But you know you want to start your search at Skylark! (We are 53 on the map there, under the words "Harbor Island.") Not only will our parking lot be filled with items such as glassware, retro chrome sconces, scrap lumber and snowboard/boot combos, but maybe our cook Riki will even throw down her famous Kahlua french toast for the occasion. Brunch is the bomb here at Skylark...be sure to check your May email newsletter for 50% off a mimosa carafe with purchase of any yard sale item. Not on our mailing list yet? Better go sign up for next month.

Bring mom for a flower-filled brunch on Sunday, May 9th and stay for one (or both) of our exciting benefit shows.

First up! From 3-6 p.m. we're hosting an all-ages benefit for GIRLS ROCK! This radical non-profit encourages 300 girls a year to creatively express themselves through music. How I wish I'd had access to such a thing in my teens--I'd be able to play more than one song on the guitar I've had now for 15 years! (Although, it is "Livin' on a Prayer.")

Representing the rawk are the band Ghost Lobby (who slayed Skylark last month!) and sassy singer-songwriter Amber Darland (pictured below).

NEXT! At 7 p.m., "Mommies & Mammaries" is a showcase to benefit breast cancer research, with proceeds going to the Susan B. Komen 3-Day for the Cure walk (via Team Tracy) in September. M & M is "a call to celebrate feminine creativity in it's many forms," featuring musicians Annie Lockwood, Abi Grace and Julia Massey (below). There will be a raffle for an awesome gift cards package from many local women-owned businesses.
