We’ve already yakked a lot about The Social, the huge, 12,000 square foot club coming to East Olive Way this summer, a joint venture between Alex Garcia, Shanon Thorson and Laura Olson. The new venue, located at 1715 East Olive Way near the new location of the just reopened C.C. Attle’s, and the recently opened new venue, Fred Wildlife Refuge and Tommy Gun is being heralded as a welcome addition to not only that part of Capitol Hill, but to the city’s LGBTQ nightlife in general. Construction crews are at work on the new space and the owners had hoped to have the place ready for a pre-Pride event, but that party, Seattle Ruckus Pride Party has moved to Grim’s at 1512 11th Avenue on Thursday, June 23 with more events to follow over Pride weekend. The skinny on those events:
