SLU Closing on 9/16/2018

It’s time to say goodbye to our South Lake Union location. We will be closing its doors on September 16, 2018, the last day of The Boats Afloat Show.

As some of you know the building has been slated to be demolished to make way for a new complex in the near future, which we knew was happening when we signed our lease back in 2015.  We have been working with the building management to see if we can extend stay in our Chandlers Cove space but have just made the decision to close at the end of this year’s peak summer season after the boat show.

We have had a great run here and appreciate all of the wonderful customers that we have had the pleasure to serve 2015 on SLU.  

Our other two locations are staying put and are doing better than ever so expect us to continue to serve the Seattle community for years to come!!

Goodbye, Brian Savage, You Lovable Jerk

2pm-5pm: Remembrance Event with snacks hosted by the family and El Chupacabra and draft beer donated by Mollusk Brewing

5pm-Close: Chupacabra is staying closed to the public so friends of Brian can continue hanging out and even stay to watch Monday Night Raw at 8 pm, which was a Brian Savage tradition.

10 pm: We will be closing up, so please get here before then.

Dress: Wear whatever makes your comfortable! Some of us will be honoring Brian’s love of fancy dress by looking sharp… maybe even in his signature red, black, and white color scheme. This event is for anyone and everyone who wants to get together to remember, mourn and talk about Brian Savage (with love, of course). He was so widely adored and the sweetest jerk anyone has ever met. So, let’s eat, drink, and celebrate the fact that we had the privilege of knowing this cantankerous, big-hearted, and hilarious man.
