Three quick notes this midday:
ALKI SUBWAY OPEN: While at the beach for a quick walk this morning, we noticed that, after a couple days’ delay, the new Subway at 2758 Alki SW is open, so we popped in to photograph the team. It’s the fifth Subway in West Seattle, as noted here when we first reported exactly three months ago that it was on the way. (P.S. Just after publishing this, we noticed Subway tweeted it’s just opened its 40,000th restaurant worldwide. Checking to see if this was #40,000.)
ATHENA’S: Several people have asked us lately about the status of Athena’s at 16th and Holden in Highland Park, since its windows are papered over and it hasn’t been open for a while. As we’ve mentioned in direct replies, its Facebook page mentioned a few weeks back that while the truck is out and about, the bricks-and-mortar location would be closed “due to construction” until net month.
FIREFLY CAFE & CREPERIE: Firefly (a WSB sponsor) at California/Genesee has new hours as of this week – 7 am-4 pm Mondays-Fridays, 8 am-5 pm weekends.
