Leilani Lanes was the world’s best karaoke bar with a great bowling alley attached to it. Then it got sold to a developer and it closed. It was going to be made into condos. It was a shot to the heart…love progress of course, just so sad to see a great place go.
Now (a few weeks ago actually) word comes that the developer is bankrupt and the property has been taken back by the bank.
Why? Why do I have to die this death over and over? Is it not enough that this icon of all things cool is gone, surrounded by a chain link fence?
Can’t it just become condos and be done. I mean, highest and best use is great. Progress is great. But closing the old girl down and replacing her with nothing? It’s a crying shame. Literally. I am crying. And it’s a shame.
Curse you, economy. When times are good you take away pleasure, when times are bad you take away lack of pain. Have you no soul? No compassion?
Can you at least put a karaoke mic in the parking lot, just for old time’s sake?
