Tukwila-Capital of All Things Strip Mall

I was in Tukwila last night and I could not believe how much construction is going on there. After said construction is done, Tukwila will have solidified its reign as the most massive (and cream colored) strip mall capital in the mighty Pacific Northwest. How many stores are being built? Only the gods of the malls know. I guess the end result is cool if you’re a shopper, but I’m not so sure that it bodes well for interesting architectural design or a certain urban village or downtown feel. But hey, I can get new Old Navy boxers, 4 for $20, so who cares right? Ugh, not really… My corporate brainwashing is wearing off, I think I need to see another ad before I have withdrawal symptoms and puke originality.

Boo to strip malls. You must visit Hillsboro Village in Nashville. It's got pretty much the coolest coffee shop, sushi restaurant, vibey bar, amazing boutique, earthy used book store, pancake pantry in the entire world. I promise no cowboys or rednecks, just the cool philisophical book reading types.

No rednecks? What about a feed store or gun shop? I don't know, your hangouts are awfully refined...
