We are however getting a new Pakistani-Indian restaurant on Boren.
So that's something. But the nearby neighborhood still has plenty of hip shops and boutiques. We are catching up though. I just discovered this new boutique next to the soon to be open Kabob House -- Lundgren Monuments.
I'm not sure what a fancy headstone storefront says about our neighborhood, other than that we are near a number of hospitals and nursing homes.
Lundgren Monuments is proud to announce the opening of their first boutique in downtown Seattle. On June 12, 2008, we will open our doors and invite the public to experience a revolutionary new way in approaching the memorialization of friends and family.
Lundgren Monuments Seattle Boutique is located at 1011 Boren Avenue, Seattle, WA 98104.
Actually, it's not too surprising to see the artistic side of Seattle follow through to the end of life. Custom urns, glass headstones, etc., do seem to be in keeping with the Seattle ethos.
Regardless, seeing this next to the Kabob House and Thai Star amused me for some reason.
And I walked away humming, "These are the people in your neighborhood...In your neighborhood..."
