9/25 update: The State Liquor Control Board now says there is no issue with Tigertail’s license and the King County Recorder’s Office has no liens on record that would indicate an IRS property seizure.
The sign on the door at Tigertail restaurant and bar on 65th St. says the establishment has been temporarily closed by the Liquor Control Board. My Ballard reader Roy Hobbs sent us this photo below. The sign reads, “Sorry, we’ve been shut down by Liquor Control. Be open soon.”
Earlier this week, Chris sent us an email to say he saw another sign on the door that claimed Tigertail is having issues with the IRS. The sign disappeared a short time later. Our sister blog PhinneyWood has called the IRS, which referred them to the county auditor’s office, which then referred them to the county Recorders office, where they left a message. They also called the public records line at the State Liquor Control Board, where they were told there is a “pending issue on their license.” They also left a message for Tigertail’s owners, so stay tuned.
