Final wall comes down at Sunset Bowl

Posted by Geeky Swedes on January 25th, 2010

A handful of people watched as three pieces of heavy equipment pushed the final wall of Sunset Bowl over.

Work on the demolition started last Wednesday. Avalon, the development company who owns the land plans to build an apartment complex on the site.

    “Tim-beeeeeer!” Wow- that is very cool.
    And Rob, you can just barely hear the cheering in the background over the squeaking of those 'dozers.

    “Oh, look, there's a sketchy and permanently planted RV behind that wall!”

    In an area chock full of “progressives” there certainly is a lot of concern over this building coming down. What part of progress isn't good here? In 10 years will anybody give a rats ass? Does merely living here in Seattle give us magical powers of whining? How many here are getting into their 56 Chevs, driving to work, listening to their 8-track players? )) )Jepordy music while I wait…………

    RIP Sunset.
    Not whining, but definately sad.
    And definately, absolutley, not a progressive.

    People from all walks of life enjoy bowling. I suspect this will be true in ten years.
