VIDEO: First-ever Admiral Junction Funktion

For the first time ever – or at least the first time we can recall – you can wander California Avenue SW north of Admiral Way today, during the first-ever Admiral Junction Funktion, continuing until 9 pm. Local businesses welcome you to come shop, dine, drink, and play!

Face-painting, too:

And did we mention entertainment? Here’s the lineup. (Added) And here’s a short clip of one of the first bands, Princess Pulpit:

Businesses from beyond the immediate area have joined in, too – Alair Gift Shop brought some of its West Seattle-appreciation merch:

And if you live/work/study in Admiral, you’ll want to go meet your Admiral Neighborhood Association reps:

Today’s event also offers at least one chance to give back to your community – in front of Pizzeria 22 (4213 SW College) we found Anna collecting diapers for WestSide Baby:

While you’re there, look for beer gardens at Admiral Pub (2306 California SW), Mission Cantina (margarita garden – 2325 California SW), Arthur’s (2311 California SW), and Yen Wor Village (2300 California SW). Three of those venues – Admiral Pub, Mission, Yen Wor – are planning afterparties tonight too, along with the nearby Benbow Room (4210 SW Admiral Way).

    Love that Lincoln in the photo! Is that a phone ringing I hear in the distance?

    Thank you, Chamber of Commerce and the grant that allowed us to enjoy this block of California Avenue for a  short time without a steady stream of cars. This should be an annual event. And thanks to the businesses, musicians, and the Admiral Twin Theater for the chance to spin for prizes, I scored a popcorn coupon! It was a lot of fun.

      We had a great time with our family and hope it’s back next year! We will attend if it is along with a few of our other Admiral Junction friends!

      Shutting down California to cars should be weekly from Fri late evening to Sun evenings for both Admiral and Alaska junctions.    Obviously people are able to find a way to wherever they need to go during the Farmer’s market on Sunday in the Alaska, and folks were able to do the same for the Admiral Function.  It makes everything more human friendly and really brings the neighborhood’s together.

    We loved having a ‘fest up in our part of West Seattle. Thank you so much to all of the coordinators. Please do this again!

Sorry, comment time is over.
