Four biznotes to share:
ADMIRAL THEATER SCHEDULE CHANGE: As the Admiral Theater (2343 California SW) continues its transformation into a 4-auditorium moviehouse, it’s hoping to get the last two done in time for next week’s premiere of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” So before you plan a trip to the movies, check their schedule, which is updated to reflect the temporary changes.
RAVEN’S NEST WEST GRAND OPENING: We told you two weeks ago about this new Native art gallery/shop in The Junction. Tomorrow night during the West Seattle Art Walk, Raven’s Nest West proprietors Sue and Israel Shotridge are celebrating its grand opening:
They will offer tribal songs, drummed by a small group of Alaskan Native tribal members.There will be members from the Eagle and Raven clans to bring a sense of cultural balance and harmony to the Nest.
Original Northwest Coast Native art along with limited-edition art prints, ivory sculptures and wood carvings will be displayed. A wonderful collection of Native engraved sterling silver jewelry along with contemporary silver, copper and brass pieces will be featured. Native designed Holiday Art cards, ornaments and many other gift options depicting Native imagery in all price ranges will be offered. Great stocking stuffers too!
Raven’s Nest will offer refreshments and will be gifting small tokens to all visitors during the art walk at its Grand Opening. The Shotridges also just launched shotridge.com, which is a wonderful ecommerce that is associated with the Raven’s Nest. Customers will be able to place orders online at shotridge.com and pick up their orders at the Raven’s Nest West to eliminate shipping costs.
Business Hours currently are Thursdays thru Sundays 11 am – 6 pm; however, we have been adjusting them from previous postings till we figure out what will work best for the location.
Raven’s Nest West is at 4557 Glenn Way.
ALSO ON THURSDAY, AT MERRYWEATHER BOOKS: 6-9 pm during Thursday’s Art Walk, Merryweather Books (4537 California SW) will be featuring West Seattle Scribes:
Seven West Seattle authors will be showcasing their books this Thursday during Art Walk night from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Merryweather Books.
The authors are: Alice Kuder, Theresa McCormick, Arleen Williams, Christopher Anderson, Lisa Richesson, Janine A. Southard, and Cat Rambo. Art work by Theresa McCormick will also be on display. Come and enjoy free refreshments while viewing the art and talking with our local authors.
WILDWOOD MARKET: We’ve been asked how this new Fauntleroy business at 45th SW and Wildwood is progressing toward opening.
We asked co-proprietor Lonjina Verdugo, who says they don’t have a set date yet but: “We are close! Within the month, we hope. However something to mention that might help speed things along, we are officially hiring! We just posted on our site.” (The listing is also in the WSB Forums West Seattle Jobs Offered section, where local businesses can list local job openings for free.)
