There’s a Coke machine on Capitol Hill with a history that’s just as mysterious as what’s inside. It has been around for at least 30 years, and still no one know where it came from or who restocks it soda!
It’s within earshot of the neighborhood’s new light-rail station and Broadway’s posh eateries and shops, right in front of a locksmith business at East John Street and 10th Avenue East. The graffiti-covered soda-pop dispenser has been reportedly spitting out cans of “mystery” soda for decades — right now, for a retro price of 75 cents a pop.
All six buttons are labeled “mystery.” On my recent trip, I plunked down $.75 (cause that’s was all that I had on me) for a Pepsi Cherry Vanilla which tasted just okay!
Wish I had more coins on me to see what else would’ve popped out! Oh well…next time!
