    Via Tribunali - best pizza in seattle (up on the hill)
    The Honey Hole (BBQ joint up on the hill)
    Betty or Crow (nicer Americana on Queene Anne)
    Pho Bac (best Pho in seattle, in the international district)
    Chez Gaudy (awesome italian place on the hill that walks around a bunch of small dishes that you pick and choose from, with really good deals on wine on tuesdays)

    Clubs:
    I dig Neighbours, despite being a "gay club" the crowd is really diverse, the music is solid, and it's good for dancing. I'm not a big "club" person, I just like dancing on occassion.
    Boom thank you. I think the first neighborhood visting is victoria or summthing like that which is around the corner...maybe?

    Yes. And if you like bookstores. My favorites are: Art Books Press (in Ballard) and Abraxus (also in Ballard).

    Also, Ballard has an awesome bar called Kings that has Ski ball.

    Dear Seattle,

    It's looking like I might be in you for Bumbershoot. Are there any cheap hotels/motels you would recommend over others? There are two of us and we are female. So uh, no rape-y places.

    Thanks,
    Hannah

    YEAHHH. I still don't know for sure. I haven't even proposed it to my likeliest travel buddy. But I bet she'll want to. It might be a little ambitious, because I will have just gotten back from Portugal earlier that month, but it's a lot less expensive than I thought it would be.

    I always recommend the Marqueen to visitors. Awesome location and nice rooms but it may be a bit on the spendy side. The Holiday Inn Express City Center and the Mediterranean Inn also seem to be fairly well rated too but I don't have personal experience with these. Stay away from anything on Aurora to avoid creepy rapeyness.

    I want to go. The lineup this year is better than it was last year. I will contact my travel buddy and see if he wants to go. Plus tix are only $80 right now. Unless you do the gold or platinum package.

    Bumbershoot is a great festival. Tickets are only $80 and there are still probably 30+ more bands to be anounced. Already its worth the $80 for me.

    yeah me too. I would also probably drive there which would cost ~$280 round trip...maybe it would be cheaper to fly if there are only two of us driving. hmmmmm

    Kreutz, I just looked up flights on expedia and they are just shy of $280 out of SLC. It's a little better for me out of Sacramento, about $175. I think I might just drive.

    Hey Bill did you go to Subtle on Saturday? I looked for you. That Nectar place is cool. I did not like the Indian slash Mediterrenean restaurant we went to before the show across the street though. It was tres average.

    Don't stay at the Day's Inn in Seattle. It fucking sucked. The Days Inn near the space needle.

    I stayed at Lower Queen Ann Hotel, right across the street from the space needle, and the Key Arena, it was nice.

    No, I'm fucking pissed. I'm sick as hell, and I'm super bummed. Was it good? I dig the new album (not as good as the last, but good).

    As far as places to stay in Seattle that are cheap, the Green Tortoise hostel is cheap (this is way on the cheap end). Right downtown. Safe enough. I don't know anything else.

    I was just looking at that one earlier. If my planned couch falls through I think I'll try to stay there. "Safe enough" is good enough for me.

    Huh? I live in lower Queen Anne and know of no such place. Do you mean the Inn at Queen Anne? That place seems pretty nice and it's right next door to the liquor store.

    While Dicks might not be the best place... Calling it a ripoff for a 1.30 burger is kind of silly...

    Shorty's is a cool bar. And Linda's is really nice until it gets later, I always end up irritated there by the time 11 or so rolls around. Their happy hour does rock though.

    For sunny afternoons I also like the patio at the Whisky Bar downtown, also a good happy hour... But again, not really keen on the place later.

    It was a pretty freaking good show. Efterklang were great.

    What's up with the only wearing black or brown out to shows in Seattle though? Seriously. I'm not exaggerating when I say that there was one (1) girl there who had a red sweater on and the rest of the crowd wore black or brown. And didn't get at all rowdy. We looked like jumping beans in the middle of an art lecture.

    Fremont... Everyone wears earthy colors or black. Some shows really suck for dancing in Seattle. Fucking hipsters and their cool restraint...
