Brown Bear to offer free car washes on Thursday for 63rd birthday

This Thursday, Aug. 27 is Brown Bear Car Wash‘s 63rd birthday, and the company will follow their yearly tradition of offering free car washes.

The free “Beary Clean” car washes will be available at each of their 27 tunnel locations, one of which is on 15th Ave NW in Ballard. The free washes will be offered from 8am to 8pm.

The Seattle-based car wash company, operating since 1957, has been doing their free birthday washes for 13 years. They also provide free washes for former and current service members on Veterans Day.

“With everything surrounding COVID-19, there will be some modifications this year, including the closure of vacuums to maintain social distancing during this busy day,” said CEO Victor Odermat. ”But we felt it was important to maintain this tradition and provide free washes to everyone in an effort to bring some normalcy during these challenging times.”

        1. You are THE enabler. As a sober guy, I do know a lot about enabling there sport. “Enabling” is what you vote for every time you yank that “d” lever. “Enabling” is what we see daily at the people’s park. WTF happened to tough love? And why are you so angry? Aren’t you getting everything you wanted? We do have the BLM; burn, loot, mayhem continuing forward. That must make you moisten yourself.

          1. Guess what? Alcoholism != politics. Helping people and funding a social safety net is way cheaper than cops and prisons–and the outcome is much better. Literally every other industrialized nation on Earth is proof.

    1. Tell me Bucko, who then could you then use to trash others if it were NOT for the shreds of human debris in our faces? More apparent every day that we need these folks, to use as implements. The folks you obviously see too. Does your wife feel safe going into Ballard, let alone downtown. Many women don’t, including my daughter. Go ahead though and sanctify and keeping approving this scourge. Quite the legacy. Burn, loot, mayhem continues on. So glad I live rent free in your tiny brain
