Bellevue’s beloved Skate King rolling to a stop
The boys and girls who skated, partied and flirted at beloved, bedraggled Bellevue Skate King over the decades are saying their goodbyes.

None of you assholes will care about this because you just moved here six months ago and are too busy going to circus classes but for native Seattleites of a certain age this news is devastating. 

We’ve many a fond memory of Saturday afternoon was spent relatively unsupervised - doing the Electric Slide, snarfing garbage pizza, trolling for young love. But nostalgia doesn’t pay the bills, and come this summer the KingDome mural is coming down to make way for a Harley-Davidson. All those 80s babies cruising under the disco lights of yesterday are trading in their laces for leathers. 

You’ve got until June 30th to get your roll on. 

Tfw you wear a 90s youth size T-shirt (that you wore 18 years ago) that says “skate champ” - “setting the ramp on fire” among other choice skate phrases like “skate King”, “skate off the wall”, and “rockin’”. 👌🏻
