    Just got back from Seattle. Lovely town. Shopped around a lot. Pike Place Market was fun. Chihuly Glass museum good visit if your the touristy type.

    Had some good eats too. This place was frickin great

    Bit pricey but the Chef's sashimi special and asking for him to make it "adventurous" really was terrific. Plus, Kenny G sat behind us.

    KENNY FUGGIN G!!! Aww hell yea!!!

    Visited Seattle for the first time over Thanksgiving. Really great city. Had a wonderful time (and the weather was amazingly cooperative --- no rain!). Things I learned:

    Small, easy to negotiate by bus or on foot. Largest concentration of hipsters ever (like a thousand little hipster college towns multiplied to the nth degree). Everyone and I mean EVERYONE has the cutest damn dog ever, of all sorts/shapes/sizes. Is this a law or something??? I've never seen anything like it. I just kept ooohing and ahhhing over everyone's dog, and I don't even like dogs that much anymore. Also, terrible TERRIBLE drivers. Holy fuck.

    Visited Mt. Rainier. Ferried out to Orcas Island. So much pretty pretty everywhere.

    Yeah, pretty much nailed it. I have serious dog envy.

    Yea, I've been doing that and not finding much yet. And yes, I'm aware of the Talabot show but can't swing that many days off work yet.

    Since his name is made up, I'm assuming he doesn't mind it being snicker worthy.

    Any other suggestions for NYE in Seattle? Trying to stay away from Seattle Center, typical clubs, and the Above & Beyond / Knife Party thing.
    PDW, you probably already have things sorted by now, but I thought I'd pass on this link for half price Black Angels tickets, just in case.

    Ha I kind of hate Star Anna a lot. But I won't hold it against you. I'm spending my winter break in North Carolina, so my NYE will likely consist of me doing very little other than falling asleep early
