There was a time when the Viper Room was cool, about the same time waffle tees, flannels and shorts became de rigeur. It's now most famous for a drug death, and the once hot (now not) mess that is the Pussycat Dolls. And since it's no longer owned by Johnny Depp, why would anyone care about this over the hill L.A. club? Because it's now owned by Hard Rock Cafe spawn Harry Morton, he of the TexMex chain (cringe) Pink Taco(/cringe). Harry wants to franchise the Viper Room, and his (cringe) Pink Tacos(/cringe) can't be far behind. Possible locations include Seattle and Bellevue.
Do we really need a Viper Room? Isn't that Don Johnson place on the Hill token enough for the Seattle douche contingent?
