We decided to close out 2011 with a bang and spent the weekend in Seattle. Despite living in the PacNW for the past 3.5 years, we hadn’t really spent much quality time there.
We drove into Seattle and like a couple of Japanese tourists, headed straight for the Space Needle!
We then headed over to the Experience Music Project. It is really beautiful and a must-see in Seattle. We started in the guitar gallery.
NYE dinner was at Umi Sake House. at 430pm. but that is neither here nor there. It was really delicious. Get the cucumber daquiri!!
We then headed over to Parlour Live in Bellevue for a comedy show and Rager Fest Dance Party.
While dancing right next to them, we noted a young, good-looking guy on the dance floor dancing with some cougars. One of the cougars asked Justin if he knew “Michael”, and Justin said, “Yeah, we were college roommates and ex-gymnasts together at Vassar College”. To keep up appearances, we had to do a quick google search to find out that Vassar is in the Hudson River Valley in NY. “Michael” thanked Justin for being such a great wingman.
We then took the ferry to Bainbridge Island. We were lucky to have such phenomenal weather and the island is so quaint.
We had some cocktails while watching the Lions game at Doc’s Marina Grill.
We ended the evening with Karaoke at Rock Box.
Nice rooms, albeit small. Our friends met us with us and it was a great time!
And J & M wore matching Pladra shirts!! Sweet action.
