The Comet Gets a New Mural

I was walking past the Comet Tavern on Sunday when I noticed this precariously positioned gentleman painting a mural on the side of the wall. I walk past it often, yet I honestly can't remember what was there before, though I can make out the silhouette of a cow through the paint. As the mural says, the Comet was established in 1945, so I'd imagine that wall's been through some changes (last time I visited, Chris Estey was interviewing David Yow and Eugene Robinson).

Finished mural and detail below.

When I passed by three days later, it was finished (and the Comet was having a free show). The artist had added a second fish, a splash, and the word "best."

  • The beer appears to be "Northwest Best"

Yeah, it was a giant cow or a bull or something before.

I think it was a bison. It had some street art wheat pasted over it, Marilyn Monroe and a dude with a chainsaw. The new mural definitely pops out on that corner now.

I don't know why anyone puts any effort into anything nice on Capitol Hill. They'll finish painting this and I'll give it 72 hours before some spray paint can strapped mongoloid tags it like a dog spraying a fire hydrant.
