Welcome to two more WSB sponsors

We started the week by welcoming the first-ever WSB advertiser, Hotwire Coffee in The Junction (read our explanation of “why ads?”), and we’re concluding it by welcoming two more — gjslogo1.jpgGarlic Jim’s Pizza in The Junction and West Seattle-based Prudential NW Realtor Bill Barna. Like Hotwire’s proprietor Lora Vickrey, Garlic Jim’s proprietor Ryan Reese and Realtor Bill B are both very involved in the community — when we put out a call a few weeks ago for WSB-land to help the West Seattle Food Bank this holiday season, Ryan came up with a plan for delivery drivers to collect donations at customers’ doors. billbarnaphoto.jpgBill’s extensive community involvement includes Friends of Ercolini Park, which within months will finally be able to throw one heck of a bash on the corner of land that’s becoming a park west of The Junction thanks in no small part to his efforts and those of everybody else in FoEP, plus other community members who donated time and money. We thank these West Seattle businessfolks for their support of 24/7/365 West Seattle news, information, and discussion here at WSB, as well as the others with whom our WSB Sales Guy is working; info on how to reach him is on the WSB Advertising page. And as we like to say frequently, thanks to everyone who visits WSB — just knowing so many people are there, keeps us in high gear working on ways to serve you better.

    Nice work on the food drive idea! We order from this Garlic Jim’s often (probably too much!) and are always blow away by the speed, quality and friendlyness.

    Kudos to Ryan and Garlic Jim’s for helping such a worthy cause. We’re already GJ customers and this makes us even bigger fans. Great job!

    A driver from Garlic Jim’s crashed his car into my garage. We tried to contact the corporate offices several times and nobody ever responded. I guess pizza delivery was more important than public safety. Pizza was awful too.

    Please call me directly at (206) 937-JIMS to discuss your situation. Had I heard a driver crashed through your garage I would have personally been out to your house immediately. This sounds like a very serious matter and I would like to get this taken care of. I hope to hear from you soon.

    CB: How fast did the pizza get there?

    I hate to say it, but Garlic Jim’s still hasn’t apologized for the crassly commercial banner on the overpass. If you’re advertising something commercial there, you clearly don’t get it. Sometimes interesting new ideas are creative. Sometimes there’s a reason it’s not commonly happening…this is the latter.

    It’s good to see nobody else has followed suit recently…but I can support worthy causes on my own and get better pizza elsewhere. I haven’t seen Talarico’s pull such a stunt…nor Pagliacci’s.

    Hotwire, on the other hand, kicks butt. I loves me some Java Bean but the Hotwire is just as good, and that’s some high praise, folks.

    Willamina, how is that anymore offensive than the political signs and banners you see this time of year on the overpass and up and down the hill?
    Would an apology allow you to finally get some sleep? As they said in STRIPES, “Lighten Up Francis”.

    Realtors are always compteing with each other to be in front of the public. I commend the guy for his service but it’s part of the real estate agent job description. WSB will get a flood of realtors wishing to sponser the site now.

Sorry, comment time is over.
