Farewell to Ballard's The Viking

By Jack Brummet, Ballard/North Beach Ed.

A painter--Ethan Jack Harrington--captured The Viking Tavern, which is just down the road from my house. They are closing to make way for "Ballard Lofts," another midrise. Also coming down is 2 1/2 Happy Barbers, and the garage next door (which was designed by Fred Anhalt - who also designed a lot of the interesting apartment buildings on Capitol Hill).  I'm Going to miss the Vike.
