1:43 PM: The final afternoon of the first-ever West Seattle Beer and Music Festival is under way, and you’re invited to bring your dog today. The spotlight right now is on the City Dog Magazine Cover Dog Model Search, on stage here at the Alki Masonic Center in The Junction (4736 40th SW), with the $10 entry fee for that competition benefiting a rescue organization – and getting your dog primped for the occasion with experts to assist.
It’s not mandatory that you have a canine companion, of course – you do have to be 21+ to enter. If you were here Friday and/or Saturday, you are invited back today, too. Even if you’re not a major beer aficionado, other beverages are available courtesy of local purveyors – for example, Jay and Mike from Whisky West in Morgan Junction (WSB sponsor) is here with a cocktail they’re calling “Bring Us a Shrubbery”:
In it – Noble Oak bourbon, house-made strawberry shrub, Montenegro, simple syrup, and basil. Find it (and other local purveyors’ offerings in the Spirit Lounge area.) The festival continues until 6 pm; ticket info’s here.
2:21 PM: The dog judging’s under way now; host Joey Jeannot‘s announcing the contest onstage. He’s also pointed out that today’s food offerings include tacos from Matador as well as hot dogs and Sisters and Brothers Nashville-style fried-chicken sandwiches.
3:04 PM: 4-year-old Coral won this session of the model search!
The competition’s over, but dogs remain welcome at the festival today.
DJ Indica Jones is spinning until 5 pm.
