West Seattle Art Walk Thursday: The Cask opening; buskers wanted

Before we get to West Seattle Summer Fest this Friday-Saturday-Sunday, there’s one more Big Event – the next West Seattle Art Walk on Thursday night, “from Alki to Endolyne,” as the official postcard art proclaims – 43 venues (here’s the list/map). We mentioned one venue’s big plans last week. Today, two more highlights – First, as noted on the official Art Walk website, The Cask in Admiral plans its grand opening that night. (We brought you first word of this “Old World ale and wine house,” 2350 California SW, in this story last April.) (added 1:15 pm – we just dropped by The Cask and got these indoor/outdoor pix)

(back to original 11:02 am story) Second, for the venues in The Junction, the streets will already be closed for Summer Fest, and the theme is “Art Walk ‘Alive'” – with street performers (“buskers”) welcome to be part of it – Art Walk organizer Lora Lewis from Hotwire Coffee (WSB sponsor) has even put out a citywide call. So if you know a busker, let them know they’re welcome to be in The Junction this Thursday night, 6-9 pm – as is everybody – we know the weather will be summery, the art will be awesome, so here’s another look at the map (again, not just The Junction, there are venues all over the peninsula) – as well as venue highlights on the WSAW site (many offer free refreshments too). See you there (and of course, at West Seattle Summer Fest the following three days).

    Should prospective buskers just show up anywhere in the junction on Thursday night between 6-9pm, and pick a spot and start playing? Or is there a meet-up beforehand or someone who is coordinating locations?

    I’ll ask Lora – TR

    MDTERP – a busker is a street musician…sometimes they’re very good..

    I just found out that http://www.ShantiSalonSpa is participating in the Art Walk. They will be showing photographry by a Portland Artist! They are not on the map but hope you will stop by.

    Cask, I am so glad you opened. A casual place for casual time spent with friends. No monitor to distract from the conversation. Just what Admiral needed IMO. Seemingly a cut above a set of tap handles and some sports feed.
    Looking forward to cheese and wine pairings, connections to local food vendors. Thanks for a great place to unwind near such a busy spot so close to home.

    We stopped by The Cask the other night and discovered that it is a wonderful place for a nice intimate conversation in one of the booths.

Sorry, comment time is over.
