SOME SUNNYDALE HISTORY
As many of our history-buff related Readers may recall, “Sunnydale” is a term used way back in 1870 by a settler named Mike Kelly (not to be confused with Mick Kelly), who allegedly walked up a hill from the Seattle area, emerged from some trees and said (although we’re not sure to whom):
“This is truly a sunny dale.”
We’re pretty sure he didn’t see the Saloon though, as it wasn’t built yet.
So…anyone out there got an extra $165K and wanna get a cool historic dive bar?
