The inevitable next chapter in the Barbarella-Obama mural saga begins like this. From neighbor by2drumallday3:
I was so sad this morning to see this new painting vandalized. Someone spray painted over Obama’s face.
Have not verified this — will check it out in the morning. Not a surprise if it’s true but still disappointing.
Also on the unverified front, a commenter claiming to be the owner of El Tajin says the Broadway Mexican restaurant is, indeed, out of business:
To all of you who dined at El Tajin, I appologize for closing the doors. We opened El Tajin with the purpose of bringing back the Mexican home cooking many of us (Mexicans) who migrated to the U.S. crave. Our goal was to provide the best Mexican delicacies in Seattle, but unfortunately the timing for this terrible economy and the lack of resources pushed us to close. The restaurant business is a tuff business when there is not enough clientale and for those who become regular clients, I thank you for your loyalty, and also for those who might of had a bad experience at El Tajin, I appologize as well. I really enjoyed serving you my family’s recipes. Have a great life and keep supporting your favorite restaurants, they need you more than ever.
Someone could be faking but by the looks of things, El Tajin ain’t coming back.
