Skillet confirms that West Seattle’s off its schedule TFN

We mentioned this briefly as a side note in yesterday’s West Seattle Farmers’ Market update, after WSB’er John reported what he’d found out – but now we have confirmation directly from Skillet Street Food‘s Josh Henderson that West Seattle is off their schedule “for the foreseeable future”:

We are pretty swamped with private events, and Aug and Sept are just crazy…so we are leaving Sundays open for the foreseeable future…could change..but for now that is what we have to do… but thanks so much for checking in, we love the West Seattle folks and hopefully they can track us down in other parts of the city.

Elsewhere on the street-food beat, Marination Mobile is in its second month of Saturday 11 am-2 pm visits to High Point (35th/Graham; map). P.S. Since food is perennially one of the hottest topics in the WSB Forums, it now has its own section – West Seattle Food. It’ll take a while to recategorize all the archived discussions that belong there (previously they were part of Open Discussion) but from hereon out, if that’s what you want to talk about – and reviews are welcome as long as they are labeled as such – go here. (And to find archived coverage of West Seattle restaurants on WSB – go here.)

    Not exactly West Seattle, but has anyone tried the fancy new taco truck on 1st Avenue, east side of the street a few blocks north of Spokane?

    Given the warm reception by the business association and lack of permanent place to set up I’m not surprised WS got jilted over more lucrative Mariner’s games and other ‘private parties’.

    Hadn’t noticed that one KSJ, close enough for me though, I’ll have to check it out.
    The mention of W. Sea. and taco trucks brings to mind the promise earlier this Summer that Tacos Bravos (?) was setting up shop on one of the Huling lots, anyone hear any word on that?
    I wish we had street food, especially late at night, like they do in other parts of the world.

    Skillet is overpriced and overrated. I won’t lie, I like their burger, but I liked it a whole lot more at the restaurant it originated at and was obviously ripped off from: Father’s Office in Santa monica, CA.

Sorry, comment time is over.
