Weekend Review: BAAMFest, WNBA All-Stars, and Wandering & Wondering

by Susan Fried  

South Seattle brims with eclecticism and this past weekend was no exception. Neighborhoods in the city’s most diverse area hosted some of the WNBA’s top talent prior to their annual All-Star Game, BAAMFest  (The Capitol Hill Block Party’s burgeoning South End rival), The Cierra Sisters Health Fair, and Kubota Garden’s Wandering & Wondering showcase.
