East Pine, RIP
So - tonight mark's the last night of the Pike/Pine corridor. Ok - exaggeration, one block of Pine street, but an influential one that's usually everyone's stop at somepoint in a given evening (weeknight or weekend)... It's to be torn down for Condo's and with it goes a whole history of drunken escapades, rock shows and chance meetings. Also - from way before that, vintage stores that I remember made me want to move to Seattle in the early 90's, a vibrant music scene and the creatives that lived behind the stores...
In any case, SLOG memorializes it and I choose merely to take the memories with me.
Pour a 40 on trashed gardens of East Pine for me if you're out tonight.
