West Seattle Blog… | IN PROGRESS: The very first Admiral Junction feature

For the very first time – or at least the first time we can remember – you can walk down California Avenue SW north of Admiral Way today, on the very first Admiral Junction function, until 9 p.m. Local businesses welcome you to shop, dine, drink and play!

Makeup too:

And did we mention entertainment? Here is the schedule. Businesses beyond the immediate area also joined in – Alair Gift Shop brought some of their appreciation products from West Seattle:

And if you live/work/study at Admiral, you’ll want to meet your Admiral’s Quarter Association representatives:

Today’s event also offers at least one chance to give back to your community – ahead Pizzeria 22 (College 4213 SW) we found Anna collecting diapers for West side baby:

While you’re there, look for beer gardens in Admiral pub (2306 California SW), Canteen mission (margarita garden – 2325 California SW), at Arthur’s (2311 California SW), and Yen Wor Village (2300 California SW). Three of those venues – Admiral Pub, Mission, Yen Wor – are also planning afterparties tonight, as well as the neighboring Benbow Room (4210 SW Admiral Way).
