July 15, 2010 Thursday.
We check into The Marriott Spring Hill suites on Yale street and have breakfast in the dining room.
Upon returning I realize the zipper on my suitcase is broken so now there is no choice but to go to the Ross Department store in town and purchase a new one. Can’t have all my stuff falling out of the suitcase!
But too many hours shopping! UHG!
Later, a relaxing shower calms me down and we head out to the Sci-FI museum and music experience- ( to meet a few SCI FI friends!)
Afterwards, we enjoy a stop at the “Living Room Bar and Café in Seattle at 1355 Olive St.
We listen to piped in blues music and enjoy a glass of Cabernet.
It’s hot but we eat olives and take goofy pictures of the room and ourselves.
Next stop “The Buck” on Capitol Hill. Very unique . There is a maniquin with one arm in the ladies room. It’s Northwest cabin style atmosphere. Dolores has a gin and tonic I have vodka and OJ at three bucks apiece goes well with our salsa and chips.
Last stop of the evening is the “Knee-High Stockings“speakeasy tavern.
and then Linda‘s for a nightcap and three dollar sliders. Very cool, very young, good music.
Time for light outs!
Tomorrow we sail!
