Hey Internets – Burien’s Elmers Pub Is NOT ‘Permanently Closed’ Like You Say

BTB Reader Ed Dacy alerted us to an interesting internets find the other day – according to Google Maps, Burien’s Elmer’s Pub is “permanently closed.”

The only problem is, it isn’t – Elmer’s is open for business as usual.

Click here to see the live listing, complete with the error, which apparently you can refute by clicking on the link “Not true?” but we know several have and yet the internets still claims it’s closed.

Here’s a screenshot showing the gaffe:

Ed adds:

Elmer’s bartender, a feisty redhead named Flo, was shocked when she received two phone calls asking if they were permanently closed as the website said they were.  Her response was

“Both times I was serving customers. We are open for business and I would like to know who started the rumor…” she said.

Elmer’s Pub, which is OPEN for business, is located at 15027 Ambaum Blvd. SW in Burien; (206) 439-1007 and we hear they serve up a mighty special ‘Irish Car Bomb’ drink there.

Oh, and when you drop in to prove it yourself, tell ’em the blog sent ya!

    It’s hard to get Google maps (or Google) to correct anything. Basically they figure that it’s in their database so it must be true. Good Luck

    Be better if it did close. Total dump filled with a bunch of rude drunks and hag-like bartenders.
