Well, the Spinnaker building (17710 100th Ave SW, Vashon, WA 98070) has sold once again. This time to the Sea Mar Community Health Centers. Prime spot up town sold for $1.1 million dollars. Personally, I think that’s a steal for the location. The building is old and configured weird for a medical facility. Even though leveling the building would be sad, I think it would be a great location for a new, modern building.
I can remember my dad hanging out up at the Spinnaker. Grandma use to take me, my mom and my brother there for lunch on Sundays. This is where I learned about Roy Rogers (coke) and scallops. I use to get scallops ever lunch and have still loved them since. Back when Star Wars came out, the waitresses made up names for Coke-a-Cola, like (The Darth Vader). My brother and I use to order the Darth Vader all the time.
The lounge use to be like an area like a sunken living room off of the right of the front doors. I have heard this lounge was the place stuff went down on the island back in the day. I also remember a fireplace down there believe. I don’t remember walking up to the restaurant, just coming through the front doors. Good memories of having lunch and dinner with my family there.
I went into the building a while ago, as I was going to have an office there, instead of working 425 Media out of my dad’s house on bank road. I seemed off to me, from a creative standpoint, I just couldn’t see myself there. Heck, I did pretty well just working out of the library and restaurants.
