McCabe's Unplugged

Line-dancing into a distant memory?

The red neon glow of the McCabe's sign won't shine tonight. Though closed for months the sign has still been drawing power and shining like a beacon of it's dodgy past. A crew was out this noon hour cutting them off 'cause, according to them, it seems the owner wasn't interested in paying the bill anymore.

So what's next for this ill-fated night spot in SoDo? My hopes is a "for sale" sign. So how would you like to see this spot and it's ample parking used? Another restaurant/dance club/bar? Anit-berm HQ? Paid dome parking?

Alfi's Salmon House would be nice... I really liked that alder salmon in the 80s

obviously a shooting range wouldn't be profitable here, the inability for McCabe's to pay their utility bill proves that (note tongue firmly pressed against cheek)

They already tried that one I think.

Build a berm on top of it.

A Tacoma franchise of The Showbox would be awesome!


Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.

So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
