Aaaand back to the city we went! A few friends and I stopped at The Crab Pot for an enormous bowl of seafood–mainly shrimp, crab legs, mussels, and clams. Oh, and beer! A vacation isn’t complete without craft beer!
This is the remains (why didn’t I snap a photo before we ate you ask? I was too eager to eat, I guess. And eat I most definitely did …a lot! This sort of gives you an idea of how much was on our plate).
The following day. First priority–find quality coffee! Something I hadn’t yet done in the city known for it’s café. We arrived minutes after Lighthouse Roasters closed but the owner was so generous he gave me a free cup of the French roast which was all they had left on tap. My guess is that it was going down the drain, anyway. Still, I was more than pleased!
Later that night things got a little wild …and hazy. The drinks started pouring early at my favorite Seatlle establishment cleverly titled The Angry Beaver. Needless to say, from all the hockey paraphernalia and the fact that the beaver is Canada’s national animal/mascot, this was a Canadian bar. I loved it!
So we started walking around Fremont. I think we stopped at 5 bars that night…
I left my debit card at the second bar we stopped at–2 Bit Saloon–where we watched a solid Metal band play and sipped on what I thought was skunk amber ale. I just shrugged it off and took one for the team! :P
So, after picking up my card, the next day, from the 2 Bit we had dinner at one of the highest ranked Japanese restaurants in the nation! If there is a heaven, this is where the oysters come from! Good lord, that shit was awesome!
Thank you, Shiro’s!
As we left Shiro’s this dude was just hangin’ out across the street–wish I lived there! I aimed my camera at him, he waved, and yelled something that resembled “hello!”. Maybe he was cursing at me in Chamorro…
Stay tuned for the 3rd, and possibly final, installation of photos from the Seattle trip.
