…So you’ll just have to take my word for it. We went out for very yummy pizza Friday night with a new group of friends, and then to a bar called the Pig ‘N Whistle. Saturday we walked to the Art Museum. They wouldn’t allow any pictures inside, but it was great. I have nothing to compare it to, not having been before this remodel and grand reopening, but everyone seemed to enjoy it. Most people that I know would hate to be there when it was that crowded. I have to tell you, I think I preferred it. I liked to see everyone else’s reactions to the art and how it differed from mine. There were some great pieces – Frida, Kandinsky, Warhol, Rodin, Pollock, and other great artists.
After all that excitement, we were starving. We ate at a great wine bar called Purple right by the museum. We did a little shopping and before we knew it, it was 10pm and we’d missed our chance to go to a bar for Cinco de Mayo. So we skipped that.
Sunday we went to Fremont after a big pancake breakfast (I made!) and walked through their Street Festival, one of those things where people sell handmade jewelry and that sort of stuff. We drove to Tulalip and shopped at the Seattle Outlet Mall. It was crap that MK got a ski coat for $50 and Lucky jeans for $30. I got a tank top. Grr.
My favorite place in Seattle so far is this place called Shorty’s. On Sunday nights they do a pinball tournament so we headed there, where MK was quickly ousted, but we met a lot of great people and will hopefully go back all the time. Finally, we went to the Seattle equivalent of the Alamo, a downtown theater called The Big Picture, and saw Hot Fuzz. The beers were $2 and the popcorn had white cheddar on it. Mmmmm. The movie was not as funny as I had hoped.
There is a tournament for girls only coming up at Shorty’s, and the grand prize is, you guessed it:
so I’ll be there practicing for the next few weeks, now that I know I need this pinball machine. More than anything.
I would LOVE to see the look on the HELP’s face as you wheeled a pinball machine through his chichi lobby. Please win.
I’m not even sure it would FIT in our little place, might have to get rid of the couch…
