5 Minutes of Silence For Seattle Nightlife

posted by on April 19 at 13:16 PM

Tonight, to raise awareness about Mayor Nickels’ Nightlife Proposal, several Seattle bars will be observing five minutes without music or service at midnight. Here’s a flyer with a list of participating bars (so you’ll know where to avoid if you simply must buy a drink at 12:03):


More information can be found at the Seattle Nightlife & Music Association’s website.

Wouldn't it be funny if surrounding condo residents called and complained about the noise anyway?

Or what if the eerie silence creeped them out and they called to complain that it was, "quiet..almost...too quiet."

One of my favorite Vonnegut stories concerned a town that shot off a civil-war era cannon every day at noon. After many years of this tradition one day there was a problem and the cannon wasn't ready in time. At exactly one second past noon everybody in town turned to each other and said "What was that?"
