    LOVE the GO WEST sign. Wish more businesses would add things like this to enhance the WS flair and uniqueness.

    My Three Little Birds party is Saturday, not tomorrow

    • WSB May 7, 2015 (1:28 pm)

      Yes, sorry, had it right in the headline, fixed now.

    Is cafe vita still in the works in the Rudy’s building? I recall the WSB reporting it but haven’t seen anything since. Asked about it when I got a haircut at Rudy’s and they didn’t know anything about it

  • Rudy's Barbershop May 7, 2015 (2:28 pm)

    Caffe Vita decided not to move forward with the partnership at this time, but we do hope to announce a new coffee partner for the space very soon.

    @Rudy’s – perhaps Diva Espresso could make a comeback?

  • Diane May 7, 2015 (2:54 pm)

    really; why not bring back Diva?

  • RichWSeattle May 7, 2015 (3:22 pm)

    I’ll third that: I miss Diva.

  • West Seattle Hipster May 7, 2015 (4:39 pm)

    Free bowl haircuts?!? Maybe I will partake.


    West Seattle is slowly but surely becoming a hipster haven. Gotta love it.


    Any word on when Pecos Pit is opening up the street?

    • WSB May 7, 2015 (4:45 pm)

      Someone just asked yesterday. They haven’t even applied for a building permit yet, according to DPD files, so looks like it’ll be a while.

  • West Seattle since 1979 May 7, 2015 (5:12 pm)

    Adding my name to the list of people who’d love to see Diva come back!!

  • Jason May 7, 2015 (5:53 pm)

    Diva really wouldn’t be a good fit for Rudy’s, and I expect they’re hoping to get someone more up to date like Stumptown, or possibly a smaller name like Slate.

  • Silly Goose May 7, 2015 (6:07 pm)

    WooHOO way to make an entrance “Rudy’s Barbershop” I have always loved your work and sent all of my male clients to you when I left the industry!! You ROCK!!

    I definitely like the Go West signage too.

    As long as we are talking appreciated storefront visual enhancements, I also like the tiny murals painted on the communications/utility boxes – or whatever those are called. The one on the corner across from Uptown is really great. The others are good too. Visual art becomes more and more important as we merrily move along our little paths and byways irrespective of modality.

    Speaking of nice-to-look-at stuff, whatever happened to East Street’s neon? I still notice it is absent. It’s sad. Maybe Go West will become the NEW iconic signage for WSea. Not saying it SHOULD, but something somewhere highly visible has to. Just saying.

  • Jeanie May 7, 2015 (10:56 pm)

    A “hipster haven”? Barf.

  • Chris May 8, 2015 (7:32 am)

    I’d like to see Fuel coffee, or Vivace.

    Just an FYI, don’t go to Rudy’s for kids cuts. The first week they opened, I decided to give it a try. I walked in to an empty shop and specifically asked if they do kid’s cuts (which typically cost $10-15). They replied yes. It is my fault for not asking the price first. They didn’t even have a booster yet, so my 2 year old sat on my lap to have her hair trimmed. The stylist was very nice and did a fine job evening out her hair. But when I went to pay, I was charged $39 (before tip). I still left a $5 tip, although the price was huge for a quick trim on a toddler who sat nicely during the 10 minute service.
    I acknowledge that it is my fault for not asking the price before sitting down, which is why I paid without comment. However, I did write feedback on the Rudy’s website without ever receiving a reply.
    Moral of the story: Agree on the price they will charge you before sitting down and don’t expect follow up responses from them.

    Bogie- Thank you for the head’s up. We considered taking our kid there for a hair cut, but didn’t because we couldn’t find any pricing information on their website. We pay less than $ 39 where we go, but it still seems like a lot for a child haircut.

Sorry, comment time is over.
