West Seattle for Japan: Evening report – dinner, drinks, tunes…

(GOOGLE MAP of West Seattle for Japan participants’ locations – click here to see it or scroll down the WSB home page. Our morning coverage is here; our afternoon coverage is here.)

If you haven’t already been out to join in the nearly-30-business fundraiser West Seattle for Japan – or even if you have! – there are places to go and things to do tonight. Above, the WS4Japan poster outside Feedback Lounge (6451 California SW: WSB sponsor), whose proprietor Jeff Gilbert designed it – they’re donating the profits from food and beverages sold today/tonight. Inside, Leslie and Amy were behind the bar as of about an hour ago:

We dropped by The Bridge (35th SW just south of Avalon) at mid-afternoon, while LT was behind the bar:

According to The Bridge’s Facebook page, she’s made way for successors tonight – but they’re continuing on as The Triangle’s anchor for the fundraiser. In The Junction, Mashiko is offering a $25 bento tonight, half the proceeds to be donated, with its ingredients highlighting Northeastern Japan traditions. (Photo added – Mashiko’s owner Chef Hajime Sato hard at work tonight:)

Other places open tonight from the official list on the West Seattle for Japan Facebook page’s info tab – West 5‘s spinning with DJ Deanzig tonight – here’s the story proprietor Dave Montoure did with KING 5 earlier today:

Also part of West Seattle for Japan tonight, Shadowland, Mission, Porterhouse, Beveridge Place Pub, Skylark Café and Club (with the Spike reunion), Fresh Bistro, JaK’s Grill, Wing Dome, and Taqueria Guaymas.

    great effort, west seattle! a big thanks to all of the participating businesses – and especially west 5 for coordinating – that allowed us to help the relief effort so easily with our entertainment dollars.

    Wonderful event. Where can I get a poster? They are very cool.

      RS – Dave had a few at West 5 when we were there in early afternoon – I’d suspect they’re long gone BUT who knows, maybe they made (or will make) more, you can check there … TR

    regarding the poster, i like how the tree is shaped like the peninsula. maybe jeff gilbert has more, since he designed them?

    We did a mini restaurant / pub crawl in the alaska junction from about 7:30 – 9:30 PM and thought places were pretty busy for a Sunday night. (then had sweet dreams about the coconut cake from west 5 – extremely yummy!) Felt great to be a part of this event. Can you please post follow up if you hear more about outcomes? Hope the businesses did well and that it will be reflected in a sizable donation.

    Joan, Dave was expecting to hear from businesses today regarding their donations, which are going into a special account, and we definitely will be publishing followup info as soon as we get it – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
