See Jane Run marathon is today
Just a reminder that the See Jane Run half marathon and 5K starts at 8 a.m. today at Washington Park. The course runs along Shoreline Drive and around the rim of Bay Farm Island, wrapping up at Crab Cove, so if you’re planning on driving on any of the affected streets (a course map is available here) or taking a bus that normally runs on them (line 63 will be detoured until 2 p.m.), be prepared to go elsewhere.
The marathon, by the way, will raise funds for Girls Inc. of the Island City.
While I’m up here, let me tell you about two events happening tonight that I just found out about. The first is the Alameda Trunk Show, which will be held form noon to 6 p.m. today at the Fireside Lounge, 1453 Webster Street.
They’ll have local designers offering jewelry, lingerie, gifts and more, all for 10 percent off. And you can have a glass of wine, a mimosa or a Bloody Mary while you shop.
Also, I just saw a flyer for a “Save Crosstown” benefit at 7 p.m. today at Crosstown Cafe and Community Center, 1303 High Street. I didn’t see the event listed on Crosstown’s calendar but it looked like there would be some musical performances. You can probably give them a call at 864-8600 for more information.
