My Ballard-dwelling friend Denise and a bunch of us closed out karaoke at The Sunset Tavern with some Night Ranger last night. Kirsten is still quite pleased with the cover of Ike and Tina's version of "Proud Mary" that I backed her up on (Denise's friend Evan was no slouch...we both sang the Ike parts). I sang on maybe four or five songs that night, the most karaoke I've ever done in an evening...

The rumor I hear is that Sunset Bowl will close for good Sunday, 4/13. The end of a personal era looms...I was never a great bowler here, and the days I'd close a bar like this on any sort of regular basis are long gone now. I will miss having one less opportunity to bowl and have a decent cheap drink with pals out in Ballard nonetheless. Ah, it was about time I switched up to the neighborhood lanes anyway (Imperial Lanes off of Rainier Ave South)...
