Chow Denny’s Dying Breath

Sad news for late night diners: the second-to-last Denny’s in Seattle-proper is closing.
From the Ballard News-Tribune:
A long tradition of comfort food and 24-hour service that has served generations will end by early 2008 as the wrecking ball comes crashing down on Denny’s restaurant to make way for a six-story condominium.
Rhapsody Partners purchased the property at 15th Avenue Northwest and Northwest Market Street from the failed Seattle Monorail Project. They plan to build the 60,000 square foot, 250-unit Ballard Commons on the property.
When I was in high-school, the Ballard Denny’s was one of the few affordable places you could go and hang out at until 3am. Now, if kids want sampler platters and bottomless coffee in the middle of the night, they’ll have to drag their asses down to Beth’s, The Hurricane, or down to the south-end or Shoreline for a Denny’s.
