West Seattle scenes: Dominos; dockside; day’s end


Meredith sends word (and photo) of something new at solar-powered Red Cup Espresso: “Friday Night Dominos game night starting at 7:00 p.m. (This week) at 9:00, a table of four was still at it and the drive-thru was open for business. Community members welcome to come play any Friday, or ask for a set of dominos to play any time you actually come in and sit.” Now, on to a Saturday night scene:


11 pm at Seacrest, the Elliott Bay Water Taxi was about to take off on its last run of the last Saturday night of the year. As reported here the other day, morning commuters will get special thank-you treats this Friday, and Water Taxi supporters are invited to let the county know they’re behind the service, as King County Ferry District reauthorization nears. Last but not least, from WSB contributing photojournalist Matt Durham, a scene that followed all this: “A day of trick or treating ends for this little rescue hero as he strolls away from the Alaska Junction Saturday afternoon.”


Prints of Matt’s work are available through his site, mattdurhamphotography.com.

    TR, what are you doing working on human interest stories at 03:00?

    Seriously, this is my dream job, because I have always been a night owl anyway. Probably the best working hours I ever had at a different job was 9 to 5 for one of my radio jobs in Las Vegas in the ’80s … that would be, 9 pm to 5 am.

Sorry, comment time is over.
