95 Slide is the sports bar where HG Lodge/the War Room used to be, serving all the sports-bar hits—nachos, sandwiches, burgers—made with organic, locally sourced meats and ingredients, so that's nice. Also: lots of sporting events on lots of TVs, with booths that can be rented for big games. If you get bored and want to stare at the walls, there's Derek Erdman's neat portraits of Seattle sports stars: Kasey Keller, Sue Bird, the Kingdome. The name comes from an incident in which Ken Griffey Jr. made a home run at the 11th hour to win some series in 1995 for the Mariners, but then the Mariners didn't, um, "go to the show" or whatever anyway, so "95 slide" is kind of a good-on-a-sliding-scale type of thing. M's fans gotta take what they can get.
