Photos from Thursday evening.
Developers are pouring a ton of money into the Arctic Building to make it an ultra-fancy hotel. I'm thrilled that this facade will be saved.
Seating outside the Federal Building. I don't particularly like the way this looks, but I like the feel of it. I would like an enclosed seating area like this in my front yard, except I would want the back of it to back up to the house, so you could look out onto the street. I think it's weird to have everyone oriented with their backs to a busy intersection like in this photo.
The Lusty Lady. The man at left is about to go inside.
Bread at Pike Place Market.
More shots from the Pike Place Market area. Dungeness crabs, yum.
Starbucks No. 1.
I'm tempted to try out this wine bar right now.
But I'm holding out for Campagne. My reservation's in half an hour.
Coffee from the Greek place.
Looks like folks preferred the medium baklava to the small today.
I didn't mean to chop these girls' feet off, but I wanted to snap fast.
Look, there's the sweater guy again. At this point, a guy waiting to cross at First and Pike asked me where I was from. When I said Seattle, he laughed hard and long. Everyone is happy today because it is sunny. This winter and spring have been shit so far.
We get a nice view table at Campagne.
A few drinks and some moules frites later.
The car's parked far away in Belltown, past the Army Navy Surplus Store on First.
