Many options. So little time.
The Imperial Sovereign Court of Seattle crowned its new Emperor/Empress a few weeks back; now it’s time for a new Court Prince and Princess. Tonight they say good bye to Her Most Imperial Sovereign Highness Princess 34, Sahara Dior D. and His Most Imperial Sovereign Highness Prince 36, Duane David and their sceptres pass to some new Royal Blood. The ceremony has a Medieval theme: “Let’s Get Tangled” so dust off your finest velvet robes. At Neighbours Underground, (Broadway entrance) from 5pm to 10pm. $20.
Meanwhile, the Hill welcomes a new bar from the owners of Madison and 23rd’s beloved neighborhood hangout “The BottleNeck”. Tommy Gun has their Grand Opening today, from 5pm to close (2am) at 1703 East Olive Way. Here’s your official invite:
You and yours are cordially invited to celebrate the grand opening of Tommy Gun this Saturday evening from 5PM – 2AM. Located just steps off Broadway at 1703 E. Olive Way, Tommy Gun delivers craft cocktails and regional beers in a classy yet friendly neighborhood bar atmosphere. Our bartenders (formerly of The Can Can, 611, 1022 South and The BottleNeck Lounge) can mix anything from the classic to the current – and our Specialty Cocktail Menu features some old standbys and some great new comers – like The Blowback, made with tequila, Green Chartreuse, lime juice, and kombucha. Tommy Gun features six beers on draft, including Boundary Bay IPA, and Georgetown Brewing’s Roger’s Pilsner, as well as a myriad of cheap, ice cold cans.
The bar menu offers a selection of sophisticated snacks and satisfying sandwiches at very reasonable price points. Created by Brian O’Conner – the Executive Chef at the soon-to-be-open Skillet Diner – the menu is designed to appeal to everyone from vegan to meat lover. Belly up to the bamboo bar top (which easily seats 18) and enjoy anything from a hearty porchetta sandwich to a heaping bowl of Black Truffle Popcorn. Our bread is delivered fresh from Columbia City Bakery and of course we’re featuring a hot pretzel as well. Menu items start at just $4.00.
Tommy Gun opens daily at 5PM and our Happy Hour lasts until 7PM, featuring $3.50 draft beers and $3.50 well cocktails, Monday through Friday. And what’s with the “Wind to 15 Clicks?” Those instructions are embossed on the drum magazine of the Tommy Gun itself, which is where our interest in guns ends and good times begin. Come get wound up with us on Saturday!
Note: it’s not JUST a queer establishment; all are welcome but it’s “family” owned. Check it out!
