The dive bar/diner my ex boyfriend (a different one, btw, than the one who was partially eaten by the burmese python) burned down is FINALLY REOPENING THIS WEEKEND.

I will not be there. I will be beach camping with good friends and dogs. But damn it, I will be getting 'faced on a weeknight in that shitty little back room soon enough.

Hurrah for the return of A.M. Happy Hour! And never let Kegan into your blessed kitchen again!

(Sorry Keg0r. But srsly, YOU BURNT DOWN THE FUCKING REEF.)

Kegan burned down the REef?!?? How did I miss hearing this story?

Heheh, well I sort of didn't know it was him for a long time, and then when he told me the story, he was clearly in so much pain over it that I didn't want to talk about it too much. Basically, it was a combination of friers that were known to be running too hot and a malfunctioning fire containment system, and the fact that the owner had let the insurance lapse just for a few days in order to be able to cut everyone's paychecks. So it could probably have happened to anyone, or at least many people, but it happened to him, and it unfortunately resulted in the place being shut down for a few thousand years instead of a couple of months.

And then he moved to San Francisco, and Lukas gave him a job in a kitchen in a bar that had recently burnt to the ground and had to be rebuilt. After the third grill fire on his shift, he got fired. DOH. But I believe he has been working kitchen jobs since then and not set anything on fire, or at least not burned anything to the ground. So it feels like it's now safe to be a dick about it. Plus I doubt he'll read my blog anytime soon anyway.

Duane (of black house fame) was the major power behind getting it re-opened, so of course it took a few thousand years. The city hates him, and he's also disorganized, illogical, and overall a poor manager/investor. I'm actually fairly upset that he's the one who got it back open, but still happy that it's open again.

I will still always remember the Reef as the place that served me cheesy fries with a healthy side of pubes. No thanks.

Hott. Well the joy of the Reef is mostly the bar-cave and the AM happy hour. But I had nothing but sanitary food experiences there once it passed into new ownership. Who knows what it'll be like now- Duane bought it.

Now I can't stop picturing severed pig's heads. We will see an entirely new level of cuisine in downtown Olympia.

It's been years, and I can still smell the rot.
