Aloha Kakou:

OK, AT is closing after St. Patrick's Day to make way for the next greedy developer's retirement, and the masochism that attends condo associations.

Who among us cares?

    Ugh. I used to live down there, years ago. What a bummer. I haven't been there in quite some time but I probably wouldn't even recognize it now. it's been 'vanilla-fied' even worse than Ballard, I'm sure.

      I heard a rumor that there was occasionally a guy there with a tent set up outside that made some of the more legit buffalo wings in the area.

      Anyone hear of this?

        Remember, St. Patrick's Day is supposed to be The End for the Alki, 1974-2013

          I made it back one last time with a friend when we had the day off for President's day. Such a tragic loss.

            Last night they were selling logo t-shirts with the following added:

            "You have to leave. You don't have to go home,
            but you can't stay here anymore."
