West Seattle biznotes from Junction, Admiral, Triangle, Delridge

Six quick biznotes:

ALKI BEACH TATTOO MOVING TO THE JUNCTION: Poking around to find out who’s taking over the former Edie’s Shoes space at 4310 SW Alaska, we heard it might be Alki Beach Tattoo … and now, they have confirmed it via their Facebook page. The name will change to Alaska Street Tattoo Parlour. Opening date TBA.

ATOMIC BOYS TURN 6: The toys/candy/more store at 4311 SW Admiral Way is celebrating its sixth anniversary tomorrow, and co-proprietor Kent Sadow says you’re invited to stop by to join the party – 10 am-6 pm, ice cream, balloons, “and drawings for fun prizes.”

MATADOR REOPENING: Matador in The Junction, approaching its 9th anniversary, is scheduled to reopen at 4 this afternoon after a weeklong remodel, including an interior described as having “reclaimed barn wood accents and new metalwork … There will be more seating added, including several new booths and an expansion of the fire-pit area, and a completely new floor.”

VENTIDUE EXPANSION UPDATE: Update from proprietor Cary Kemp about the Pizzeria 22 expansion project mentioned here last August:

The new room will accommodate up to 50 people for private events as well as space for overflow from our original dining room,which means no more waiting as well as reservations! We plan on completing the project in April.

DOGCITY WEST SEATTLE: We received some questions about the blue/green building in The Triangle, just south of the YMCA (WSB sponsor). It’s DogCity West Seattle, a day-care/boarding/grooming facility whose owner Jan Brown says they decided to start it after looking around for pet sitters for their own furry family members.

UPTOWN DELRIDGE ADDS GAMES: The game business is suddenly hot in West Seattle. In addition to Meeples Games getting ready to open, Uptown Espresso in Delridge has added retail sales of games. (Added: A “grand opening” is scheduled March 22nd.)

    I like that anti-gravity machine in the Pizza place.

      sorry, fixing

    Atomic Boys probably has an anti-gravity generator and possibly a time machine too.

    I enjoy the Matador for my evening tea. Ok. With a bit of 151 rum mixed in. But, I hope they add a few light fixtures. I can hardly see the menu.

    Any update on when Meeples might open? A Pokemon “class” or tutorial would be greatly appreciated in my house.

    had no idea Edie’s Shoes was gone; perfect spot for tattoo

    Diane…wishing I could get another (tasteful, of course – hehe), but compromised immune system says no :(

    Jan; I’ve never gotten a tattoo; maybe this is the year? perhaps you can be my tattoo adviser?

    Not too thrilled a tattoo joint is moving in that space… shoes are much more interesting…

      Just to be clear for anyone who didn’t follow the link in this story to our original story about Edie’s closing in The Junction – her Capitol Hill store is still open – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
