The sprawling downstairs of the Unicorn opened last night, and it is just as insane-carnival-gorgeous as the ground floor. Capitol Hill Seattle has a Narwhal slideshow.
And 95 Slide, the sports bar where HG Lodge used to be, opened too. Again, CHS with the photos (hey, that's Derek Erdman's stuff!). Someone explained the name to me—it comes from this here incident in which "Ken Griffey Jr. scores in the bottom of the 11th inning in Game 5 of the 1995 ALDS to clinch the series for the Mariners"—but said then the Mariners didn't, um, "go to the show" or something, so that it's kind of like a good-on-a-sliding-scale type of thing.
