Original Baytown Seafood Building Blackened!

Building 6-17-11 after a fire destroyed it.

Well, I imagine there was the smell of charred shrimp and blackened fish in old Pelly the other night and many might have thought it was business as usual, but wait, what? The old building was going up in grease-perfumed smoke?  There is definately something fishy about this.

Well, it's not like it was any real loss, since the battered old building was vacant and set to be demolished like a Friday night side order of oysters...but it was the original location and I suppose some folks might be floundering in sediment, er, uh, I mean sentiment. Adios old beat-up building.
Update: 6-23-11  Building is down.  New building is behind it.

Note: I've eaten there many times and since no one was hurt or hurting, I just wanted to have a little fun with the story.

All were from suspicious causes. CK
