Seattle: Local Info needed

bb | Jun 26, 200409:31 AM     5

Visiting Seattle next week. Love shellfish (oysters & crab most of all) and wondering about the NW seasons. What oysters are likely at their best? I believe Dungeness crab are out of season, correct? So probably best avoided, yes? Any other local seafood recommendations please - clams ... or? Can anyone recommend best fish houses/oyster bars in both downtown Seattle (where I'm staying) and in the vicinity (which I will try to visit at weekend).
Also, I know Seattle is a bastion of cask-conditioned ale. Can anyone recommend where a (n Imperial) pint of something closely akin to an English "best bitter" could be procured? As you can see from my email address, I am a bit of a bitter fan. Anyone in Seattle who knew Sherlock's Home in Minnesota (home of Bishops Bitter) and knows of a place with beer of any comparable standard, I would be in your debt.
For my part, I will surely report back as to what I find, either recommended or otherwise.
Thanks,
bb
