Memorial Day Weekend - Two Parter

Billy Bob | May 4, 2009 02:25 PM


Part 1: 3 Hours to Kill
I have 5 friends flying in for a guys' weekend on Memorial Day weekend. Two of them arrive at 9:00 am on Friday, the other three get in at noon. I live over in Bremerton, which makes driving back and forth kind of impractical. We could just hang out at the airport, but I am wondering if there might be any cool coffee shops, bakeries, breakfast locals, etc. that would be worth hitting in the general vicinity of the airport to wait for the slackers until noon.

Part 2: Pub Crawl
On Saturday we are going to do a pub crawl in downtown Seattle. We are going to start at Pike Brewery and finish at the Mariners vs Giants game at 7:00. I am looking for suggestions for cool pubs/bars/saloons to hit on the way to the game. I am thinking stop number two will be Elephant and Castle to give you an idea of the kind of places I like. Two main criterias come to mind. First and foremost a good selction of hand crafted/micro brewed beers. Second a cool/fun atmosphere. Decent vittles is a bonus, but not required. This crew would not be at home in a high end place GastroPub like Spur. I would like to stay in the general corrider between 5th and 1st as we make our way to Safeco, but would be willing to stray a block or two east for a can't miss place.
