West Seattle New Year’s Day 2011: The basics

Hello again, and happy 2011. Some of the basics for this holiday Saturday – Metro‘s on a Sunday schedule. No mail; banks are closed; no trash pickup, and the transfer station’s closed; city libraries are closed; these parks facilities are closed. As for coffee/grocery stores/restaurants: Please note that what follows is NOT the same type of list we published for Thanksgiving and Christmas – for this holiday, rather than call every establishment in West Seattle to find out their plans, we tried an online experiment, checking businesses’ websites, Facebook pages, and/or Twitter accounts (and any other online sources). Many did not have easily findable “holiday hours” info online, but here’s what we did turn up (certainly others are open, and if you know of any firsthand, please comment or let us know and we’ll add):

Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (WSB sponsor), 8 am-7 pm (via e-mail)
C & P Coffee (WSB sponsor), 8 am-3 pm (via e-mail)
Bird on a Wire Espresso (both locations), 8 am-2 pm (via Twitter)
Pioneer Coffee on Alki, 9 am-5 pm (via Facebook)
Dubsea Coffee, 8 am-2 pm (via Facebook)

PCC Natural Markets/West Seattle (WSB sponsor), 9 am-7 pm
West Seattle Thriftway, 5 am-midnight
(ADDED) Junction QFC and Safeway are open, per comments

RESTAURANTS (check directly for hours):
Skylark Café (WSB sponsor), via website
Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor), via website
JaK’s Grill, per website
West 5, per Facebook
Salty’s on Alki, per website
The Porterhouse, per Facebook
Endolyne Joe’s, via Twitter
Tuscan Tea Room, via Twitter
5 Junction restaurants open for brunch/lunch (via WSJA website)
(ADDED) Eats Market Café (per phone call – open 10 am-4 pm and serving brunch menu)
(ADDED) Heartland Café (per comment below, breakfast till 4 pm)
(ADDED) 88 Deli/Restaurant in South Delridge, per Facebook comment

Again, just what we found with some online-only browsing; there are certainly more. Also note today’s events – including the Polar Bear swim at 10 am across from Duke’s on Alki, and volksmarching starting between 9 am and 1 pm.

    In addition to being on a Sunday schedule, Metro fares went up $.25 so start hanging on to those quarters.
