Sabey Corporation has been offering tours of the old Rainier Brewery's Cold Storage Building in Georgetown. It's over 100 years old, and before Prohibition, it was the 6th largest brewery in the world. I signed up for a 9 a.m. tour and took a bazillion snapshots.
I don't have time to write about the tour, but I'm sure the Paper Noose will provide some sharp commentary later on. (I saw his name on the list for the afternoon tour.) But anyway, here are some of the photos.
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign.
They made us all wear hardhats because of falling bricks.
As my friend Heather, a civil engineer, would say: "Engineering sadness."
Even though we were supposed to spend the evening at home, cleaning the house, we went out for dinner here last night. Bison burger, salad, and Georgetown Brewing's Chopper Red Ale. I half-drunkenly text-messaged friends all over the country, asking them to join us. (No one did.) Then we went home and walked around the neighborhood, and a neighbor invited us for a beer on their lawn. Nice!
I often find myself wishing that I had a sweet SLR instead of just a little point-and-shoot. That feeling is particularly acute at this moment.
The swanky new Via Tribunali pizza place is going in here.
Our house is right behind some of those trees at the top of the hill.
Another woman on the tour asked me to take this photo, as she works in the red-roofed school there on the hill. (If you are that woman, and you are reading this right now, you can click on the photo and download a larger size if you like.)
