Early Posting

I'm posting early tonight as Goldfish and I are walking down the block to see the end of an era as Latitudes, formerly the Elbow Room, closes forever after tonight. Rated the Second Most Dangerous Bar In The World in it's glory years (there was some bar in Hong Kong that took first place), the Elbow Room has long been a fixture here on the island but the neighborhood has changed since those days and the owners sold out to Unisea who have no intention of keeping it open. There are now no bars in Unalaska - both bars still open are on the Dutch Harbor side. There should be an interesting parade of characters streaming through that tiny bar all night . . . .

We have tommorow off - most of the guys I work with have not had a day off in the last four months. I should have Sundays off from now on until crab and pollock season starts back up January 1, and the production guys are beginning to fly home for their well deserved 2 month vacation. All we have left is a few more crab deliveries and this season will be a wrap! Cheers!

I think since the bar has not become so dangerous it shouldn't be closed due to danger. Whatever love ya.

Dang. I wish I'd seen this yesterday. I would have asked you to toast the bar for me. Sad to see that one close.

Shame it's closing after all these years. I take it alot of people had been waiting for the moment when they could force it to shut down...wonder what'll happen to its website...
