Prost! West Seattle

SEATTLE, Washington - No need to go to shit neighborhoods like the Herpes Triangle to get some German bierhaus satisfaction. Seattle's teutonic overlords have opened Prost! on California Ave.

I wandered on in and got myself an Erdinger Dunkel Weisse and a bockwurst and it was just like I was transported to Germany. Or at least, transported to Phinney Ridge, where I wanted to buy a house a few years back but I couldn't afford any of them.

Herpes Triangle? Uh, what is that?

A Seattle restaurant critic called South Lake Union the "Herpes Triangle" like ten years ago.

Christine said...

Well it obviously didn't stick, so why are you calling it that?

JMR said...

oh the name has stuck, no matter how hard Paul Allen tries to banish it.

Why would Paul Allen try to banish it?

JMR said...

Mr Allen has made massive real-estate and development investments in that neighborhood. He thought he could make it the "biotech center of the universe" or something.

I thought you might have had heard some gossip that he has herpes or something. Now that would have been interesting!
