West Seattle, Washington
Two months ago, we reported on Rebellyous Foods‘ move to the West Seattle Triangle, where the startup is producing plant-based “chicken” as well as inventing new production tech, all in hopes of revolutionizing the nugget world. In that story, we mentioned in passing that the space Rebellyous has leased at 4600 37th SW is so vast, they’re open to subleasing some of it; now they’ve formalized the call for “roommates”:
Rebellyous is renting out some of our HQ space for mission-aligned small businesses in search of a place for food production.
*Flexible space which includes Cold Storage, Production Area & High Bay Warehouse
*Two dock high loading doors
*Short-term, month to month options

If you’re a frequent WSB reader, you probably know we frequently feature bird photos with the daily “West Seattle (Today)” highlights lists, thanks to some fabulous contributors. Lately we’ve received several views of bald eagles at Alki Point that deserve a separate showcase, so here goes. Above, Larry Shaw photographed two mature bald eagles; below, Gary Jones caught a juvenile eagle tussling with an older one – and it won:
And another view of the two grownups, from Don Brubeck via the WSB Flickr group:
P.S. Big thanks to everyone who shares photos – from wildlife to breaking news! Email (email@example.com) works best but if you’re photographing with your phone, texting our hotline, 206-293-6302, works too.
Chief Sealth International High School also played basketball at home last night, vs. Lakeside. Here’s how the games turned out: The boys’ varsity won 61-59; girls’ varsity lost 45-27. Next up for both is a visit to Bainbridge Island – the Seahawk boys play there at 7:30 pm Tuesday (January 7th), the girls are there at 7:30 pm Wednesday (January 8th).
We continue spotlighting the community organizations that are returning to their regular meeting schedules post-holidays. This Wednesday (January 8th), all are welcome as the 34th District Democrats focus on a spotlight topic, as announced by communications chair Carla Rogers:
The program will be about Hate Crimes in Washington.
Our January meeting (1/8) will be held at The Hall at Fauntleroy in West Seattle. We start at 6:30 with a potluck and social 30 minutes. The short business meeting will begin at 7 and the program will start shortly thereafter.
Join Nina Martinez from the Latino Civic Alliance and Attorney General Ferguson’s Hate Crimes Working Group, and Kendal Kosai of the Anti-Defamation League of the Pacific Northwest, for a panel discussion on the prevalence of hate crimes in Washington State.
The Hall at Fauntleroy is at 9131 California SW.
Thanks to Mike for the tip: That sign is now posted at the Westwood Village USPS branch (2721 SW Trenton), with advance warning that its lobby will start closing from 7 pm to 7 am as of February 1st. It’s been almost two years since the West Seattle Junction post office made a similar announcement. That news in March 2018 followed a theft incident; we checked and haven’t found any such recent reports for the Westwood branch, but will be inquiring further on Monday.
Welcome to the first day of the first weekend of the first year of the ’20s! First, a traffic reminder:
35TH/ALASKA INTERSECTION CLOSURE: Second day of this scheduled three-day closure – remember that if you’re heading south on 35th, you’ll be detoured at Morgan unless you live in the area. Full detour detalls are in this Thursday preview.
