MyBallard.com and KOMO Ballard are reporting that Bad Albert’s Tap & Grill is the latest long-term Ballard Ave business to announce it’s closing, most likely within the next month or so. Bad Albert’s is located in the Palmer Apartments building at the intersection of Ballard Ave and Dock Street. Also on the Ballard Hit List, Ballard Ave edition, in recent months were Acme Rubber Stamp and Elephant’s Gerald. MyBallard.com has some quotes from the owner of Bad Albert’s here. Apparently the ongoing economic downturn and the owner’s health issues are behind the decision to close.
