Comment on E-mail signed Sam Adams: ‘The West Seattle Club has closed … For falling short, I apologize’ by cb123 http://westseattleblog.com/2014/10/e-mail-signed-sam-adams-the-west-seattle-club-has-closed-for-falling-short-i-apologize/#comment-1663854 cb123 Thu, 30 Oct 2014 14:36:36 +0000 http://westseattleblog.com/?p=290297#comment-1663854 If the building had so many issues then why did he even enter into a lease agreement? That 'apology' email is just a means to malign the building owner and tout his fantastical version of the truth -- that he is somehow the victim in all of this. Sam Adams has only one person to blame - Sam Adams. If the building had so many issues then why did he even enter into a lease agreement?

They had awesome apps and salads (we had the caprese and it was amazing!) we also had the puttenesca pasta and the chicken parm, both whe're excellent. Do t let the name fool you it has more than pizzas. Also it has been a pizza and pasta place for the last 14 years, it's not like it's an invading pizza army. It was there before zeeks as a pizza place. Both as abbondanza and banana joes. Jack, I was in there tonight.

I think Adams apparently realized he could go to the Gray Bar Hotel for some of the things that have transpired, and needed to make a mea-culpa/that’s-not-the-intention-at-all statement. . Let’s take for example the pool. There was all kinds of crap tossed into the pool when Adams left - that much you could see with your own eyes from outside the windows - and apparently TP clogging the filters. But according to Adams, he was doing the new owners a FAVOR by draining the pool “so he can get it up to code.” No matter that Adams was happy to offer his full-price-paying patrons a pool that was apparently illegal. . I could pick the rest of that letter apart line-by-line…but it’s water under the bridge for me now, and for those taking action against him to deal with. . It’s a sad ending for his business…and likely not the end for Adams himself, as member and state actions will probably be ongoing for months and years to come. That statement is CYA at its best.

Marcus, the manager, made sure the club was cleaned regularly and staff were always friendly and courtesy. I've been with the club for nearly 10 years and I hope that it does reopen.
