Last week, CHS told you about the first 20 years of history for the much-loved Pike/Pine fixture Linda’s Tavern. Wednesday night, the legendary Capitol Hill bar celebrates and everyone is invited.
Tuesday, another of Linda Derschang’s babies celebrated as E Madison’s Chop Suey debuted its new Twin Dragon Lounge complete with an amazing new mural that’s worth a visit just to see in person.
Created by artist Debbie Faas who was able to pitch Chop Suey management on the idea of doubling up on the imagery though creative use of luminescent paint, the mural depicts fierce Japanese dragons — black and white by light, glowing with color in the dark of Suey’s new black light system.
Chop Suey celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2012 a few owners and format changes since its founding by Derschang and partners a decade earlier. It endures as one of Capitol Hill’s more eclectic live music and entertainment venues. And now it has a rad mural, to boot.
