West Seattle weekend scene: ‘Keep(ing) clam’ on the sand

March 23, 2014 at 10:11 am | In Seen around town, West Seattle news | 3 Comments

As explained by commenter Jane following our Friday note about no-parking signs for a Saturday “production shoot” on Alki, it did indeed turn out to be an Ivar’s production. Via the WSB Facebook page, Athena shared photos (including the one above) after happening onto the Saturday scene. Last Ivar’s production we recall in the vicinity was the notorious 2009 underwater-billboard yarn. The restaurant chain’s founder Ivar Haglund, of course, was an Alki native, and this past Friday (March 21st) was the 109th anniversary of his birth.
