POLAR BEAR SWIM: If you want to join in this year’s traditional Polar Bear Swim at Alki Beach, be on the sand across from Duke’s Seafood (2516 Alki SW; WSB sponsor) in time for the countdown at 10 am sharp. Here’s the announcement.

Closures aren’t as numerous on this holiday as Thanksgiving and Christmas so we don’t usually make comprehensive open/closed lists. But if you’re looking for coffee, here are a few shops planning to be open:

C & P Coffee (5612 California SW; WSB sponsor is open 8 am-2 pm
Youngstown Coffee (6032 California SW) is open 9 am-2 pm
West Seattle Grounds (2141 California SW) opens at 7 am
Olympia Coffee (3840 California SW) opens at 8 am
