Seattle, The Next Morning [Mar. 17th, 2012|11:04 pm]

Window design of a hardware store on the way to (cupcakes for) breakfast.

I've quit coffee (and by "quit" I mean I'm at .01% of what I used to drink) but Quinn said Cupcake Royale had the best coffee. Wow, she was not exaggerating. I can't figure out what they did to it, but it was the gods' nectar.

But I was sugarlogged after the cupcakes-for-breakfast, so Quinn took me to High 5 Pie, where I could eat a flipside stuffed with potatoes and dill.

Plus they made delicious cappuccino with this attractive device.

There is so much going on in this city.

Quinn said, "here's a zine library, women in lingerie, puppies, and the Poetry Apocalypse." Seattle just has it all!

I think our bags look related.

I love a city that is rainbow friendly.

This is a random example of how beautiful the downtown area looks. There are no ugly buildings.

Then we went to the Pike Place Market.

I was enthralled by the cheese makers ~ and most of the experience was the amazing aromas coming from this shop (which had a line around the block).

Thousands of names on the floor of the market.

The Greatest Shoe On Earth!

We both hugged this big ole' hog, "for luck."

Another squirrel, this one in his underpants. (Also SubPop and Rollergirls.)

The Washington flag (featuring all of George Washington's head), at the entrance to the Pike Brewing Company, where we ate and drank a delicious lunch.

One more: my laptop display has a 16:9 aspect ratio, so I'm using this as my desktop wallpaper.

That brings us to midday. More Seattle pictures to come.

Philly is rainbow friendly. If I wasn't on dial up, I'd link to some of the ads our official tourism agency has done. Mayoral candidates publicly court the endorsement of pink agencies. We even have an official Gayborhood, where all the street signs have little rainbow flags.

I love this city!
