"I'm told a few old Chinese places (besides Louie's) have great lounges with fires. I was told one existed in Burien, but I can't find it."
I went to The Hobnobber in Burien today. It's an old tavern, the real deal that only serves beer and wine. I'd guess it was built (or last remodeled) in the mid 60s-early 70s. It's well cluttered with cheap beer signs and inflatable beer promo crap but it's obvious it was once a nice tavern. There's floor to ceiling, curved front, lava rock fireplace in one corner which is now blocked by a dart game.
Most interesting was the original decor still on the walls (photographed with my phone):
There are two of these king chess pieces by the pool tables. The other one is looking the opposite direction.
In the main area there are two musical instrument pieces. The other instrument is different from this. (Both their tops are covered by really exciting inflated Budweiser Nascars.)
Closer look. The original orange paint is still there under decades of smoke and dust.
"Anyone been to the Poodle Dog in Fife?"
"Anything notable there?"
