Reader: Harbor House stinks

Dave Wagner of Coeur d’Alene wasn’t impressed when he visited the Harbor House concession stand/bathrooms at the Third Street entrance to Coeur d’Alene’s Tubbs Hill last Tuesday – and saw garbage bags and empty beer kegs behind the building. “The smell was horrible,” he told Huckleberries. Also, Dave saw cigarette butts scattered around the deck, discarded gloves and – drumroll, puh-LEEZ – a used condom discarded on the west side deck. At 4:30 in the afternoon, fuhcryinoutloud. (Insert “EEEWWWW!” here.) Dave has photos to back up his story. The kegs, gloves and – thank goodness – condom were gone when Huckleberries checked out the Harbor House on Thursday. But the trash was piled up behind the building. This isn’t the image you want near such a key visitor spot on the city waterfront/DFO. From Huckleberries Monday. More here.

DFO: Dave emailed a photo of the used condom on the deck of the Harbor House. I thought I'd do you a favor by now publishing it here.
