The Viking closes in Ballard

Peggy Cannon, owner of The Viking, hugs former employee Jeremy Downey Tuesday, April 30, 2013 in Ballard. For about the last quarter century, Cannon and her husband Tim Cannon have owned the neighborhood tavern. "There is nothing else to do here but socialize with people over a beer," said Downey. "It's a family bar. It's really sad this place is closing."
