Thursday tidbits

-Thanks to the reader who tipped us that Bakery Nouveau is featured on the cover of Seattle Magazine’s new “best restaurants” issue. Yum.

-A new exhibit at MOHAI will feature 19th-century paintings from a daughter of the Denny party’s namesake.

-Also from the P-I, Ted Van Dyk has a good post-viaduct-vote rant. Reminds us of the interesting sight we saw while traveling up Cali after the Charlestown meeting last night — an apartment window plastered with not only a YES ELEVATED sign, but also RECALL NICKELS and even mock Times front pages with the apartment-dweller’s fantasy future headline NICKELS DEFEATED. (Perhaps a Steinbrueck relative lives there!)

    I notice that the owner advertises his address as “at the Alaskan Junction.” Somebody should tell this furriner that he’s not in Alaska no matter what street he’s moved to.

    Oh boy! Sometimes I reaaly get tired of the critical remarks over such minor things.Speaking as a 4th generation West Seattle resident-we’ve often referred to the two Junctions as the Alaska Junction and the Admiral Junction.I’m Just happy we have this great bakery in West Seattle!

    Kudos to the Nickels bashing apartment dwellers, and that interesting article. Here’s some related comic relief. You are going down in 08 Mayor Gridlock.

    In defense of accuracy … the first poster, we believe, referred to “Alaskan” vs. “Alaska.” We pointed out something similar months ago, when a political mailer called it the “Alaskan Way Junction”:

    Do you know why the military-looking helicopter was flying over W. Seattle around 7:00 tonight?

    Great. This is the last time Ehren Watada crashes in my basement.

    Man, that’s really nice of you to put him Bill, I’d probably let him sleep upstairs if he was in my house, but I don’t have a basement so I guess I’d have to anyway.

Sorry, comment time is over.
