This Week on Slog
In the last seven days we posted 150 entries and received 1,425 comments. That’s an average of 21 posts per day and almost 10 comments per post. Smokin’!
Since it seems like our comments threads were on fire more so than ever this week, I’m going to look back at the hottest topics:

Dan Savage asked Slog readers to help name a new gay bar opening soon on East Pike Street near Broadway. The owners were deliberating between Pulse and Sugar, neither of which readers were thrilled about. After 80 or so comments, “Fagbar” came out ahead.
And Dan posted an artist’s rendering of a condo project planned for Broadway and Mercer Street (the building he and Erica argued about on Tuesday) and gathered 27 more comments about smart development.
Thursday, March 23Hannah Levin infected the Slogosphere with an absolutely compelling time-waster and reaped 73 comments as music lovers puzzled communally.
And Dan gathered 33 more remarks on naming the new Pike Street bar.
Today (Friday, March 24)
As of right now, a likeness of Britney Spears giving birth is neck and neck in the contest for most comments with Cienna Madrid’s response to Joel Connelly’s mention in today’s P-I of one of her anti-Cantwell posts from last week.
