West Seattle Junction summer fun: See the poster! Order your kit(s)!

That’s the poster you’ll see around The Junction for this summer’s modified festivities (first announced last month) – the Sidewalk Sale, and downsized Summer Fest. It’s by Jeff Rodriguez of Horsepower Design, and the neon squirrel design will also be featured on the tote bags for the summer-fun kits on sale now, as well as the beer and wine glasses you’ll find in two of the kits. The kits are on sale now – for info and ordering, see this page of the spiffy new West Seattle Junction Association website designed by Cami MacNamara of West Seattle’s own WebCami. Here’s the Summer Fest/Sidewalk Sale schedule:

    $55 for beer tasting?  This city is getting expensive.  Maybe I’ll head to White Center.  I can get tipsy at the Locker Room for eight bucks.

      It’s not just beer. The full descriptions of the kits/boxes/totes are on the linked page. For this one, “Carefully curated beers selected by the beer bosses themselves, along with a selection of cheeses, cured meats, and caramel corn from Husky Deli, this kit is a hoppy hour for the beer lovers. The box is completed with a 2021 keepsake taster glass, and some surprise additions revealed upon opening. $55 (link to the virtual beer tasting included if you can’t make the live event).”

      Skeeter, I don’t know the current status, but, the Locker Room was heavily damaged by a fire about a month or so ago… —Mike

    Wow! They replaced Summerfest with a mayoral town hall! Can’t wait! Will they delete all records of it when it’s over?

      I imagine you’re making a joking reference to the vanishing texts. If not: A candidates’ forum during Summer Fest is not a new thing. We moderated a forum with 15 of the 21 mayoral candidates in 2017; no video exists because the person who was supposed to record it for the co-sponsoring organization did not show up. Learned our lesson. In 2019, we moderated a council forum at Summer Fest and made sure it got recorded; video and story here.

    Having a sidewalk sale in the junction again brings me back to my West Seattle 1980’s childhood.  I loved saving up my money for months and spending it at the Sidewalk Sale!

      Yes! The phrase sidewalk sale brought back memories of my youth too! Such exciting times!

  • WS_Native May 26, 2021 (9:07 am)

    Golly gee, will they be bringing back J.C. Penney, Wigwam, Shafrans, LaGrace, Mortons, Penny Lane, Turnabout & The Hobby Shop too? 
    All kidding aside I loved the old Sidewalk Sale. Hoping this one is a success as well.

    Reminiscing of simpler times can be a nice reprieve…
