This isn’t the Lake City Dick’s; it’s Broadway. But it sure is pretty.Dick’s saves lives, especially the Lake City outpost. Located way-too-conveniently close to the Rimrock, the drive-in sells burgers and fries to drunks, thus soaking up enough booze to refocus the crossed eyes of well-lubed (and therefore stupid!) motorists.But sometimes the best intentions go perilously awry, as in the case of a retired UW researcher named Colin John Sandwith.The 73-year-old Sandwith pulled into the Lake City Dick’s, clearly seeking a meat and potato sponge for his bourbon. But rather than hitting the brakes as he rolled toward the window, he hit the gas–and went boom!The Lake City Dick’s, writes the P-I’s Casey McNerthney (a Lake City resident), is “temporarily closed.” It is unclear whether Sandwith was tippling at the Rimrock beforehand, but we’ll bet a Special he was.
