A Seattle Thanksgiving Memory

I was thirteen when my parents went through a horrific divorce in the 70s. Of course that meant my siblings and I went through that divorce too,there were six of us. My Mom took to drinking in grand fashion,to the point where she ultimately ended up in a hospital for years,after too many suicide attempts. Before that though,my Dad left us with her as she deteriorated,while he scoped out the city for a new mate/mother for his kids.

The final Thanksgiving before Mom’s complete breakdown dawned with her,as usual,passed out after a long night at the local dive bar. Thankfully (no pun intended-it being Thanksgiving) she had spared us an overnight guest. Lately,they’d been increasingly,um,rustic.

Eastlake Bar &Grill claims higher standards than the typical American bar and grill. Upon entry guests walk into a warmly decorated and candle-lit atmosphere rather than a loudly bustling and cluttered sports bar—more like popping into a friend’s house to catch the game and enjoy some laid back service and rockin’ Lake Union views. Not to imply that the family is unwelcome. Patrons of Eastlake Bar &Grill range from locals to tourists,college students to seniors. Whether the sports on TV or the lights across the lake catch your eye,it is easy to settle in.
