The address for the Be Jeweled indie jewelry event has changed:
In Seattle, indie jewelry is a girl's best friend-not the mainstream pieces found in eggshell-blue boxes. A perfect place to find of-the- moment jewelry from local designers is the Be Jeweled event. Among hundreds of stylish choices, you can snap up artfully tousled necklaces from Sarah Pauli, exquisitely large rings from Bruce Magnotti, and mod, bold bracelets from Smersch Design. VIP status ($50 per ticket) grants early entry to an exclusive fashion show, a private preview of the jewelry for sale, and a jump-start on the champagne and catered hors d'oeuvres. DJ Leslie provides the shopping/socializing soundtrack. Raffle tickets may win you haute jewelry or a cake from pastry chef Sue McCown, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to Gilda's Club Seattle, a nonprofit organization devoted to supporting those affected by cancer. 21 and over. Seattle Center Pavilion, 305 Harrison St., Room A. http://www.bejeweledshow.com/. $15-50. 6-10 p.m. Thurs. Nov. 30. MOLLY LORI
The designated driver program Last Call, a partnership between Harborview and the local watering holes, is opening a taxi stand tonight in a neighborhood that will surely benefit from the service. Located in front of PCC on Evanston, it's in stumbling distance from all the Fremont hotspots, and partiers can get a safe ride on Thursdays-Saturdays between 11:30 p.m. and 2:30 a.m. Take advantage of the easy access and soon you may see similar stands popping up in like Pioneer Square, Capitol Hill, and Belltown.
And finally, there's a sure-to-be-incendiary forum at the downtown library tonight, as FCC commissioners Michael Copps and Jonathan Adelstein take public comments on proposed media ownership rules from 6-9 p.m. Maria Cantwell and Rep Jay Inslee will make the opening statements, followed by community testimony. Get there early for a ringside seat! 1000 4th Ave., 386-4636.
Refer to Wire throughout the weekend--it's gonna be chilly, but there's plenty more to do than sit on the couch drinking cocoa. Get bundled and get out there!
