Thursday night notes: Eat Local Now; Swinery; Junction Halloween

EAT LOCAL NOW: This event celebrating locally grown food, with sponsors including Sustainable West Seattle and, is now just a month away, and tickets are on sale: 5 pm October 11th at the Alki Masonic Hall in The Junction. Read more about it here; buy tickets here.

SPEAKING OF FOOD: Just this morning, we noted The Swinery (taking over 3207 California SW) was chronicling its push toward an expected opening next week. Tonight WSB contributor Christopher Boffoli has learned from Swinery proprietor Gabriel Claycamp that last-minute renovation challenges have pushed that date back to September 21st.

JUNCTION TRICK-OR-TREATING: Jennifer e-mailed tonight to ask whether this megapopular annual event will be on Halloween itself, since it’s a Saturday this year, or the week before. The West Seattle Junction Association has scheduled it for 1-3 pm Saturday, October 31st, so go ahead and mark your calendars. We’re also asking Admiral merchants what they’re planning to do and will share that information when we get it.

    Despite my antagonistic tone, I do appreciate it when complaints are noted and suggestions acted upon promptly. Kudos, West Seattle Blog!
    I’m sure I’m not the only person looking forward to stopping by the Swinery on my grocery runs; they are conveniently located a block away from PCC, and from initial reports, they will be offering a few essentials that that co-op falls short on, for me.
    (Feel free to drive up the price on the guanciale, fellow readers; there’s other pig parts that haven’t been profiled in the NY Times that I can’t wait to work with at home :).

    Is there any way the Junction streets can close for the Trick or Treat event? It seems the streets can close for the street fair and the car show but I find it odd, somewhat disturbing, that the streets remain open to traffic and the sidewalks are overflowing with little kids hyped up on candy! Really, is it too much to ask for the safety of our children? I’m contacting the West Seattle Junction Association and the City for permitting requirments, but if anyone has any info….or better yet influence; please help! Thanks!

Sorry, comment time is over.
