WEEKEND SCENE: ‘The last Zippy’s burger ever sold’

That’s the note on the door of Zippy’s Giant Burgers in White Center after its final day on Saturday. We saw it there at 8 pm, when would-be customers were still showing up in hopes they weren’t too late. But they were. WSB reader Margo says her family got “the last Zippy’s burger ever sold” – and sent this photo of her 10-year-old son Chase enjoying it:

Margo says they got that last burger around 3:15 pm. The early sellout was not surprising considering this was the line before they opened at 10 am:

Zippy’s owners Blaine and Rahel Cook announced on Tuesday that they’d be closing this weekend after 14 years. They were in Highland Park for the first three years before moving to a larger space in White Center.

    White Center is not West Seattle and if you have not yet read Richard Hugo’s The Real West Marginal Way autobiography do complex relationship between WC and WS. Zippy adios … Que vaya con Dios.

    It looks like young Chase is ignoring the blockchain craze and enjoying his tasty NFT instead.
