Related to kitsch, newspapers and food, but not recipes

The Taj Mahal of Ballard has been saved, local news agencies reported yesterday.

City Council voted 6-3 to declare the 1964 “Googie” style building (you’re reading correctly, it’s not Google, Seattle’s other business juggernaut) a landmark.

We used to eat here after pulling costume shifts until 2 a.m. at Display and Costume during the Halloween season. People are making fun of the fact that such a ridiculous building is being saved, but as a recent transplant, I agree with those who are saying it’s one of the most defining features of Ballard (at least when you approach it from 15th and Market St.).
