West Seattle holidays: Live from Yen Wor, it’s Guy’s Christmas party

December 20, 2012 at 10:37 pm | In Holidays, West Seattle news | 7 Comments

Walk into the bar at Yen Wor in The Admiral District tonight, and you’ll get a name tag like that – it’s the Christmas party that karaoke host Guy Olson organized for anyone who’s missing the classic company-party-type event because they’re work-at-home/unemployed/etc. Guy is presiding, with helper Katie:

And special guests – KING 5 reporter Zahid Arab and crew; back when Guy announced the party, we tweeted about it, and Zahid thought it sounded like a fun story, so they’re there (you might have noticed the live truck parked on the north side of the building):

You’re welcome to join in – sing, dance, wear a lampshade (you might have to bring your own), make up stories about imaginary officemates … If somehow you’ve never been to Yen Wor, it’s at California/College.

  1. Sounds like fun! Was there a good turnout?

  2. We stopped by fairly early. KING’s story showed a bit more of a crowd, but their video still would have been in the first hour and a half or so, since they were live (with the videotaped insert) around quarter past 11.

  4. I was there during the clip that king5 showed; very good crowd; and WOW, the 2 women I heard sing were incredible; great job, wonderful idea; thanks Guy; and thanks king5; loved learning the whole story about the woman who was singing in the brief time that I was there; wishing you all (and me) jobs of our dreams for the New Year

  5. Wow! After months of random posting in WSB comments that Yen Wor has karaoke, Guy finally gets the recognition he deserves! ;-)
