    Re: Seattle.

    My experiences with Redmond came from working at Microsoft and visiting the homes of coworkers and hanging out while waiting for the traffic to subside. I have no real gripes with the area itself,...

    That Seattle pass is a hell of a deal and it gives you a pretty good variety of the Seattle tourist spots. The Space Needle is awesome if you can avoid the busy times and the Museum of Flight is...

    Re: Seattle.

    My GF teaches at a school not too far from there so we carpool to that area every day. It is about a 15 minute drive to/from the city but Renton is all Applebee's and B&N's and Fry's. Downtown Renton...

    I've lived on and around Queen Anne for 13 years. It was the first neighborhood that I moved to after college and in 3 moves I've progressively moved from the north side (within walking distance of...

    The Croc is a great venue, especially since the heavy remodel. Be sure to show up early and grab a pizza at Via Tribunali (located within) before the show.

    The Cyclops rules. It exists pretty much between my home and anything else I'd want to hit up in the city which makes it a reliable stop either coming or going. It really doesn't change into anything...

    Well yes, I'll grant you that. Nobody looks in their rearview mirror to notice that they're blocking the passing lane. It's a weird phenomenon here. I just gun it down the center or right lane...

    Really? Have you driven in NY or LA? Both of those areas have bigger asshats than mellow/passive-aggressive Seattle.

    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.

    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...

    The Weekly sucks. Chinook's is neither a beer hall nor is it in Fremont. In Fremont I like Brouwer's Cafe which is a Belgian place. Check it: http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/Location?location=30441

    Yeah, there are quite a few bars there and a couple small venues for shows too. Fremont has been steadily become gentrified over the last decade. It used to be a quiet little enclave with artists and...

    Yes, that one was pretty tacky. I remember giggling at the original when I was a kid. Now that we've come full circle I feel obligated to giggle once again. Oh you, Starbucks!

    I live a few blocks from it and I'd say that it's worth a visit, especially on a nice day. They did a pretty good job of cleaning up that area and Myrtle Edwards Park is not nearly as sketchy as it...

    Here's the original logo. Apparently it's considered too risqué for the rest of the world. I have no idea why.

    You're not too likely to see a killer whale near Seattle. I've only seen them up in the San Juan Islands which is a bit of a journey north.

    Wmgaretjax would be able to tell you more, that's more of his area. I'm a few blocks north of Belltown and I spend much of my free time at Shorty's playing pinball and drinking alcohol.
