CHS Pics: Jesus candles for Slats

Longtime fixture of the Pike (and beyond) nightlife scene Chris “Slats” Harvey died one year ago last Sunday. CHS isn’t posting this to claim him as our own. We don’t know if he ever read CHS. We doubt he did but we’ve been surprised before. We do know he has become, literally, part of the Hill. We also know, before he became a Hillebrity, he was just another Montlake kid. This week, Jesus candles and miscellaneous offerings including flowers, Hershey’s Kisses and a few nickels were left in front of his bottle-cap mural on the light rail construction wall to remember Slats and mark his passing.
