Three West Seattle restaurant notes today:
HARRY’S CHICKEN JOINT: North of Morgan Junction, Harry’s Chicken Joint (WSB sponsor) is planning its six-month celebration … half-iversary, you could say. Two weeks from today, according to proprietor Bruce:
Just wanted to give you a heads up, we are planning quite a party on Saturday, September 7th to celebrate the six-month anniversary of Harry’s Chicken Joint.
We will close that evening and take our chicken and treats a few blocks south to the Beveridge Place Pub from 6-9PM. It will be a fun time for Harry’s to thank all our loyal friends, neighbors, and guests.
We are also introducing some new menu items: shrimp po’ boy, oyster po’ boy, greens, and a salad.
Come on down and say hello. You’ll have to pay for your beer, wine or cider, but Harry’s will provide the food from 6-9.
ALKI SUBWAY OPENING: Tomorrow (Sunday, August 25th) will be opening day for the new Alki Subway (as first reported here in May, it’s in half the three-year-old, never-occupied space at 2758 Alki SW). **6:44 pm update, as noted in comments – the date was on a hand-lettered sign in the window when we walked by just after 11 this morning, but as of 15 minutes ago, THAT sign has been replaced by another hand-lettered one saying “Opening Soon.”
WSB RESTAURANT GUIDE UPDATES: We have added a few pages to the WSB West Seattle Restaurant Guide, including one for Westcity Sardine Kitchen, which might come in handy since WSK doesn’t have a website of its own, and a page for Chopstix. If there’s something you’d like to say about your favorite West Seattle restaurant(s), remember that each eatery’s page in our guide does have a spot for comments. P.S. to restaurant owners: We make the rounds every few months by phone/online checking for changes to hours and other key info, but you are welcome at any time to e-mail us with updates if you make changes or discover something outdated in our guide – email@example.com – thanks! (The restaurant guide, in case you wondered, is NOT a paid-advertising section – it’s one of our free services to both readers and local venues. WSB does have restaurants on the sponsor team, and they get special mention atop the restaurant guide’s index page, as well as in the WSB Sponsors directory, and you’ll see their ads on the WSB sidebar.)
