The Stranger's "Micro-Neighborhood" News Update

Posted by on Thu, Jul 12, 2012 at 3:04 PM

Did Kids Steal Deano the Clown's Unicycle? Deano the Clown, the "remarkably famous" Seattle entertainer, was performing at the "Madison Park Days" picnic this past Sunday when his prized unicycle was stolen, presumably by a group of kids to whom Deano had generously loaned it earlier in the day.

Ezell's Chicken Changes Lives: Central District News links to an Esquire post yesterday in which the magazine named the CD's own Ezell's "The Most Life-Changing Fried Chicken in America."

Pay Station Explosion: Also on Sunday, a man was walking past a parking pay station on Northwest 54th Street when a piece of shrapnel from an explosive device mounted on the pay station struck him in the arm, reports My Ballard. The victim's condition is unknown, but the SPD reports that the damage done to the pay station was "extensive."

BB Gun Drive-By on Broadway: On Monday, July 2, an alleged car thief and a friend decided to take a stolen Dodge Intrepid down Broadway for a little BB gun drive-by, Capitol Hill Seattle reports. The suspects abandoned the vehicle but were quickly identified by police and arrested. Incidentally, BB gun drive-bys rank very highly on the list of "Things Not to Do After You've Stolen a Car."

What kind of weenie goes to the hospital with non life threatening shrapnel wounds?

The pay station explosion hurt somebody. That's the only thing bad about this story. Next time use a sledge hammer please.

All because Oprah loves Ezell's Chicken doesn't make it life changing. I mean look at Oprah? You really think she's that picky about what she shoves down her gullet?

I don't know about Ezell's chicken, but their peach cobbler is the most disgusting crap called dessert I've ever paid money for. Brown sugar goo is what it is, no peaches in sight. Gak.

Stealing cars and doing drive-bys with BB guns is no way to go through life, son.

Didn't Dick's win the "life changing burger joint" poll too?

Ezell's while tasty is not even in the same strata as Gus' Famous Fried Chicken in Tennessee.

Ezell's is OK. If it changes your life, your life is pretty dull to begin with. I don't actually know who makes the best fried chicken in Seattle proper. Southern Kitchen in Tacoma, now that is the real deal. If the chicken doesn't change you, the strawberry iced tea will.

The news about the theft of Deano's unicycle fills me with despair. What kind of world...?

Deano gave me his business card and posed for a photo on the Mukilteo ferry a few years ago. I believe this is the first SLOG mention of a local I've actually met.

He was sweet. I hope they nail the Juggalo who swiped his cycle.

Has anyone been to the new Ezell's "Heaven Sent" outpost in Lake City?
Posted by Mmm...chicken!! on July 12, 2012 at 7:19 PM · Report this
@13 I haven't yet but a coworker went and she loved it. Since the original owner of Ezell's took his recipes and opened Heaven Sent, I think I need to check it out.

FYI: Anyone eating Ezell's right now isn't eating the real deal.

@13, I never see any cars in front of the Lake City store. But they must get customers since they've been open about 2 years.
