    If you come here to visit and take pictures, try your best to hunt for Kurt Cobain's contribution to the gum wall. I'll bet you can't find it.

    The germaphobe in me shudders, however the Gum Wall is cool to look at, just no touchies! While you're down there, slip into the Alibi Room for a pint and pie(pizza pie), it's a semi-hidden gem.

    Gum was once known as Chicle! Which came from the bark of trees that the native Americans used to just chew for no reason. Gum sure does have a sticky history!!!
