CORRECTION TO 2/14/19
Feb 14th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

A major correction: The site where a strangely-shaped new tower project is going up, as seen in Thursday’s MISCmedia MAIL, is NOT the site of El Corazon/The Funhouse, but an adjacent lot. Our apologies to all.

‘CORAZON’ ATTACK
Feb 13th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

Another vital alt-culture spot’s (at least indirectly) threatened; another City Council member’s not running again; another local TV station’s for sale; the snow trouble’s still not over in some places.

CRUISIN’ THE VIADUCT
Jan 13th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

The city and WSDOT apparently expected a calm, orderly shutdown to the Alaskan Way Viaduct at 10 p.m. Friday night.

What happened instead was a big, popular, slow-speed cruisin’ scene. Thousands came to pay their last respects to the doomed scenic waterfront roadway. There were cars, trucks, at least one semi, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians.

It was after 10:25 when crews finally put up the barricades at the Viaduct’s northern on-ramps. The northbound cruise continued for more than another hour.

The official last civilian vehicle on the Viaduct was a stalled car, that had to be pushed by a cop car.
