#2125 #S1127 - Stir, Seattle - 4/6/2013

Simone and Emily at Stir nightclub, Seattle
"Stir" was the last, floundering attempt to make a go at this building across from Key Arena that seemed to change identities every couple years. That will be the final attempt though -- this time they razed the 1970 building. It had a few brief dying moments though -- lingerie parties and ladies nights, drink specials on Jack and Coke and Long Island Ice Teas, appeals to Madonna and Bob Dylan fans on their way to the shows. The one night I went there was a gothy sort of event called Wicked, with people rubbing gun oil on each other's latex outfits. "I realize why they don't put pockets in latex clothing," a friend told me, "It's because they collect sweat and water and destroy electronic devices."

Telesedrin and Pete at Wicked, Stir Nightclub
When this place was Skybox, when it was Kwatay, when it was Chicago's or Nico's or Mr. Lucky -- it was never a place I thought to go to often. Still, it's a pretty damn good bet that whatever condos or retail mix replaces it is going to be considerably less interesting.
