Rocksport goes out with a party; Sold out they close a day early
Rocksport, the restaurant and bar that has been forced to close by the impending Equity Residential project at the corner of Alaska Street & California Ave s.w. Went out with a huge party featuring Helles Belles the AC/DC tribute band that rocked just as they did 17 years ago when the Rocksport first opened.
Though originally set to close on Sunday July 15 the sales on Saturday proved to be so big the owners chose not to open.
Posting on Facebook they wrote:
"Due to the overwhelming popularity of Saturday night we sold out of all food and liquor! So we will not be opening today! Thank you West Seattle for 17 years! You've been awesome! And that's a rap."
Starting at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, July 24, Rocksport will hold a public auction to sell off nearly everything, including audio and visual equipment, sports and rock memorabilia, and bar and kitchen equipment.
