Dave!After flying up from Sacramento this morning, I was in a mad rush to get my work caught up so I could meet up with Muskrat and Whit to goof around in Seattle for a while.

Since Muskrat's time in The Emerald City is short, Whit and I attempted to do a whirlwind tour of the most popular Seattle tourist spots, including wandering the Pike Place Market, going to Ivars for dinner (with some very angry seagulls), getting a coffee at the first Starbucks, riding the monorail to the Pacfic Science Center, and (of course) going up the Space Needle...

The evening ended at Von's... a Seattle classic bar since 1904. We started with beer, but when a $4 Manhattan hit the Big Wheel of Magical Drink Specials, we couldn't resist...

Not a bad way to kill an evening!

    1962. World’s Fair. Seattle. Space Needle built. That’s my claim to fame….for that is the year I was born (shh, don’t tell anyone…I’m well aware that I look more like I was born in, oh say, 1965 or something……)

    A GREAT way to spend a weeknight.

  3. I so badly want to come back to Seattle. Ty and I were there for our honeymoon 15 years ago and loved it. So glad you guys had a great time!

  4. Avitable says:

    You mean you weren’t out until 5 AM? Who was this Muskrat and what did he do with the man I know?

  5. Whit says:

    And a good time was had by all. Seriously, we should open Dave & Whit’s Seattle Tours or something.
