Nightspot gamble to be a winning hand?

By weeklyvolcano on July 19, 2006

Thefactory The Factory, currently looking factory-like and mostly vacant at 5602 S. Washington, is due to open in less than a month.  On Aug. 11, the South Sound will get a taste of the new nightspot with the longest bar in Western Washington, and quite possibly the most intriguing Thursday night contest, ever. (Hint: the contest involves kissing.  Second hint: and girls. Third hint: and no boys.)
The Factory's other entertainment will be free salsa dance lessons on Tuesdays, $1 wells with karaoke on Wednesdays (because nothing says “get up and sing” like cheap booze!) live music and DJs most other days, and up-coming charity events involving motorcycles. (Hint: more girls, scantily clad. Second hint: wet, too.)
General manager Jeff Jordan and owner Max Messmer like to gamble, and may have found a winning hand with this concept, where there will be something for everyone (older than 21), with four full-sized custom pool tables set for the open-beamed catwalk area and a secondary bar to service that area (“second largest in the bar!” quips Jordan) on top of all of the other proposed events.
It's possible that I won't be a contestant any time in the near (or far) future, but the salsa lessons sound like fun.  I always wanted to try to get my Merengue on. ... â€" Jessica Corey-Butler
