What lurks beneath Skylark Café? “MOHAI Minute” looks into it

Thanks to Diane for pointing out the tweet with this newly YouTubed video about West Seattle’s own Skylark Café and Club (WSB sponsor), made on behalf of MOHAI (the Museum of History and Industry). As the YT page puts it, the hosts are trying to put the hysterical in historical. Or something like that. Anyway, it’s definitely not your standard stentorian-toned peek back into time. (If you don’t already know host Peder Nelson for his other endeavors – like music – you might remember our interview with him before he produced the Frances Farmer tribute at The Admiral in fall 2008.)

    I’d always wondered…..
    Actually, it looked a lot like I figured it would: like my basement.

    That is one heckuva cool video…though I find it difficult to believe there was illegal activity back in the “olden days”.

    I’m impressed! Great video and historical overview of the neighborhood.

    on a [slightly] related note: i would love to see an inside view of the space needle kitchen and office spaces hidden away from view from the public . . .
