In the 'burbs the anti-prop 1 message was simple. No $60 car tabs.
Apr 2 ballard dude commented on Piecora's Pizza to Close Forever on April 15.
As a juicy 20-something living on Capitol Hill in the late 80's, I loved that Piecoras would deliver a half pizza. Even better was when they would deliver a whole pie for the half pie price! I always tipped the delivery guy with weed… maybe that explains the whole pie thing.

I would agree with #21. East Valley 13. When I lived on the North End, the Crest was my go-to. But it totally feels like a cut-rate, second run theater. The East Valley 13 is huge, big screens. At $3.50 it's hard to beat. As for first run movies, just too expensive.
Feb 15 ballard dude commented on Beerly Deloved.
I lived first in a scary boiler room in a sketchy Bellevue Ave apartment, and then at the Summit Vista on Summit street '86-'89. The Gay 90's was one of my favorites. Strong-ass drinks. My then gf asked the bartender to add a bit more coke to basically a glass of rum, and was asked, "What's that? You want milk?" (cackle). Just down the street was a great pizza place… Abruzzis? Anyway, a trip to the Gay 90's was always followed by pizza and then giant long island iced teas at the Gibson. Downtown at that time was completely abandoned after 7pm. Like post-apocalypse, zombie-crackhead wasteland.

Squid Row was the best. Our friends played there pretty frequently (Skin 'n Bones). For shows they would throw plywood on top of the pool tables, and the place was literally packed to the rafters. There was no stage, just a corner that the band would be jammed into.

UPDATE, 10:02 p.m. | The boy who Puyallup police say unintentionally shot another teen boy will be booked on suspicion of first-degree manslaughter, according to Capt. Scott Engle.~ The Seattle Times

The adult who owned the gun, and left it unsecured, though?

Charles, I think you 'get' your adopted city. I especially liked the Darwin, island evolution metaphor. Well done.
