Dim Lights & Stiff Drinks

  • 8. The Tin Hat in Ballard

    44:33
    Is it Ballard or Phinney Ridge? Does Rainier taste better on draft or in tall-boys? Can you still find smokin' deals at your local thrift shop? Listen to this episode from The Tin Hat to find out. With all the tasty micros on tap you might think this is a snooty hipster bar, but fear not! Dive runs deep at The Hat and you can still Flatline. You just can't get a $1 hot dog unless you're a secret Stonecutter member.

  • 7. Eastlake Zoo 50th Anniversary

    49:04
    Has it really been 2 1/2 years and 3 DLSD seasons since we've recorded at the Zoo? And has it really been 50 years since a bunch of hippies bought a bar just so they'd have a place for the softball team to drink for free? Yup. In this very special episode, we join the Zoo crew to celebrate their 50th anniversary. But the history doesn't stop at [checks sliderule] 1974 because these dive bar vibes go all the way back to 1934 - even earlier if you wanna shop a convenience store.

  • 5. Al's Tavern in Wallingford

    49:28
    Wonderful Wallingford is home to Al's Tavern, spitting distant from other Seattle classics Taco Time, Dick's, Ezell's, and The Erotic Bakery. Better bring cash and don't order the corndog. You're SOL if you want Rainier on draft. Luckily you can get a tall boy to hold you over (for now) until the brewery riots subside. Recorded live at Al's Tavern on 04/18/2024.
