BIZNOTES: Wyatt’s Jewelers sale; Grillbird poké pop-up; Samila & Co. wedding-dress contest & sale

Three West Seattle biznotes:

WYATT’S JEWELERS SALE: Tomorrow (Tuesday, September 15th) marks the start of a weeklong end-of-summer sale at longtime WSB sponsor Wyatt’s Jewelers in Westwood Village. 10 percent off everything in the store, and higher discounts on some items.

POKE TODAY AT GRILLBIRD: Matt at Grillbird Teriyaki (35th/Morgan) sent word of a one-day poké pop-up:

Starts at 4 pm and goes until we sell out.

Menu includes: garlic shoyu or spicy ahi poké bowls and Poké nachos! We will also be selling grilled Spam musubi’s and ginger pineapple lemonades.

We will also have a live ukulele player welcoming and entertaining guests in the parking lot!

SAMILA & CO. CONTEST & SALE: Bride-to-be? Know one? If you – or they – are working on the front lines of the pandemic, Samila & Co. (4306 SW Walker) is giving away a wedding dress – and today’s the last day to enter. This page explains how. Separate from that, proprietor Yasmin Shirdel adds:

Separately from the giveaway, we are extending an additional discount of 25% off a brand-new dress (not the traditional sample discount structure) – this is an unprecedented discount for a current-season dress – to all brides.

The sale is Friday-Sunday, September 18-20. Samila’s outlet in North Admiral has been open 2 1/2 years.

    What does pop up mean when you say poke old and got no clue what that word even means and have seen it many times during the shut down virus times

      What is the proper way to pronounce poke?Poke is pronounced (poh-KAY) and rhymes with okay.Is there one generally agreed-upon style, or are there regional variations?Generally speaking, poke would refer to raw pieces of tuna cut into cubes, then marinated with soy sauce and sesame oil and mixed with onion; though the variations go far beyond this generalization. Poke doesn’t necessarily have to be tuna or even seafood, nor does it have to be raw or cubed. If can be cooked or raw, cubed or scraped, and doesn’t even have to be fish or seafood. Cubed avocado is sometimes used. If you go to a local grocery store in Hawaii, poke is a staple, and there are endless varieties including poke made using octopus, poke that is dressed with a creamy mayonnaise and poke garnished with kimchi or wasabi, resulting from the strong influences of Japanese and Korean cuisines.

    We just got the the poke nachos and they are outstanding! Thanks to Grillbird for doing this pop up and thanks WSB for letting us know about it!

    The Poke was awesome!  But what brought us in was the live music by a Hawaiian musician. Great addition. Hope to see him again there.

    Argh!  Just saw this. With a little more notice, I’d have been there for the poke!!

    @Grillbird, please do poke again! We just saw this and are sad we missed it! I hope it went well.

      grill bird, please do poke again! If I had known I would’ve jetted down the street for dinner!

    Grillbird = smarter than average. Live ukulele in the parking lot? Every parking lot should have live music (“Live music is better bumper stickers should be issued.”) 

Sorry, comment time is over.
