I thought the scavenger hunt in Boston was a great time.  (Of course I was on the winning team.   ;D  Special thanks to Bocker [former long term resident] and the D's for their I phones.)
Steaming tea kettle, how if the heck could anyone miss it?  It was right there on the side of a Starbucks, for goodness sakes.  I still remember Killfoile with all his ink, going into McDonalds asking for a job app.  

Jan, you're right, I would leave you behind "leggless", if it came down to a choice of victory vs friendship.  But rest assured, I'd eventually work my way back to retrieve you.  EVENTUALLY.

I noticed the link Ody supplied said that "Seattle bufs" won't have any additional advantage because of the way the hunt is formated.

I think that sucks!  While I've been gone from Seattle nearly 15 years and probably wouldn't be much help, at least I would have some knowledge.

I say we do it.

As you know, Grunge Rock (the Seattle Sound) was big in the 1980s.  The city always seems to be on the cutting edge when it comes to giving music to the world. 

Lets find these guys in Pioneer Square and perhaps they will come up with a theme song for AMG11.

I must admit -- There was one clue about which I was, well, clueless.......  I forget the exact details, but it was about a statue (some animal, perhaps??) -- I could tell that it was somewhere near the Omni Parker House by the clue, but the rest was solved with the help of google. 

So... while that one was a hard one, I still stand by the fact that the steaming kettle was the easiest damned clue of the bunch!!

We found it too missy.  In fact the only thing we didn't get was a picture of two guys wearing a redsox hat.

We actually got it, but we misread the clue, I think we all had to be in that pic, and we weren't.

Good God, people, what does all this banter about Boston have to do with the price of coffee in Seattle? Can we please focus? or start a thread titled "We Loved Boston and We Just Can't Move On..."

Come, look ahead! Seattle is a little over 2 months away and we need some plans! There's this Seattle Citypass thing that Santi and I are going to get:

http://www.citypass.com/seattle?mv_source=partnerfusion&cmpid=google_Seattle%20CityPass&mkwid=sMxgpu7zL&pcrid=5835980309&gclid=CNfxxe6-q6kCFQHsKgodVnS6MA

and here's what to do on Sunday: we're all invited to my friend's birthday party on Sunday night. I haven't seen him in 23 years but he said the more, the merrier!

and remember the OP was:
This thread would be a good place for members to post links they've found regarding Seattle.  I'm thinking it might turn into a fun potpourri of information, attractions, and facts regarding the site of AMG 2011.

Because of the recent discussion regarding weather, I'm going to start it off with this link, click on the button "Seattle Climate Data" toward the end of the opening post.

I'd encourage everyone to submit additional links.

Update on the Citypass...it includes the Experience Music Project which Michael says is fantastic. He's a passholder. Evidently it was founded through Jimi Hendrix's estate and has evolved into a lot more. The monorail is right there (short as it is) and the Science Fiction Museum is inside it as well, from what I understand.

We are thinking about doing the Music/Sci-Fi thing on Friday afternoon. Breakfast, Memorial Service, Michael takes us to a fabulous off-track seafood restaurant, then the Music/Sci-Fi, then probably a short disco-nap is in order before spramping up for the Meet-n-Greet.

Still thinking about when to go to the zoo, aquarium, etc. I definitely want to go to the locks and underwater salmon-viewing windows, which I believe is free, and hopefully they will have the guide wires ready so's Jan and Robert and Will and me can jump off the Space Needle.

Don't forget about Wolfie.  I bungeed off the 2nd tallest bridge in the world in Fayetteville WVA.  It spans the New River Gorge where we go white water rafting (has class 5 rapids).  You know what the last words of my hillbillies are; "hey bubba, watch this"...lol

omigod! I've done that too! I loooove going down the New River. We've shot the rapids on the upper and lower halves maybe 7 or 8 times. Having lived on both sides of the Appalachians, whether in OH or the Carolinas, W VA is a lovely place to visit (but I wouldn't want to live there! LOL) It's a great place to ski in too (although in my case that was mainly just falling down the mountain. ROFL I can't water ski either :( ). Maybe we should have an AMG in W VA one year  :D ;D

When I was there a few years ago doing the upper gulley with a group of friends there was a group of gay people taking the adventure.  They were staying next to us at the campground and I had a blast with them.  We're scheduling a cousins reunion in September to do that adventure.  I love that place and it's not far from our original homestead.  It would be a great AMG location.

Seattle is home to 2 of the most spectacular sports facilities:

Safeco Field where the Mariners play (unfortunately for Jan, Robert, and all you other MLB fans they'll be on the road when we are there).

http://seattle.mariners.mlb.com/sea/ballpark/index.jsp

And Qwest Field (Soon to be renamed Century Link Field) where the Seahawks (football) and Sounders (soccer) play.

http://www.qwestfield.com/

Those arriving by either Amtrak or the Light Rail from the airport will pass right by both of them.

I'm sure they will be fine if they are cooked, especially fried. Just like rabbit and squirrel, you shouldn't eat raw oysters in a month that doesn't have an "R" in it.  August = no; September = yes.

That's a big myth -- we have local oysters all year.

http://www.nefsc.noaa.gov/faq/fishfaq5b.html

I go to a specialty place here that serves oysters from Chincoteague up to Cape May and also Long Island. Prepare to spend $25-$30 for a dozen. Which is why I go when an out-of-towner is present and on an expense account :) They also regularly feature Royal Miyagi oysters which are from Vancouver Is., British Columbia so same species found in Puget Sound. They are a species that are originally from Japan. If you want native oysters in Seattle you have to make sure it is an Olympia oyster. I believe they are now much less prevalent than the Pacific Oyster (like the Royal Miyagi) because those are much easier to cultivate.

I'm going to be very curious what I think of the new (well "new" in the sense it was built after we moved) central Library.  It's design and architecture is to say the least, unusual.  I remember when the design was originally submitted, it caused a lot of controvery. 

This library was built on the site of the previous library (which was a rat hole).  In the interim the library temporarily located to the convention center (which along with Freeway Park) straddles I-5).

Just a heads-up if you look for Bamboo Garden -- it's not in the International District, it's just north of Seattle Center (where the Space Needle, the Opera House, Intiman, and Key Arena are).  The I.D. is at the south edge of downtown; Seattle Center is north of downtown.

Does Seattle have vegetarian restaurants?  Does Milwaukee have beer?  Cafe Flora (on Madison -- a real estate agent would call the area Capitol Hill) is the biggest name - upscale menus and upscale prices.  Sunlight Cafe (Roosevelt district, north of University district) is a hippie throwback, but a good one.  And Gelatiamo downtown on 3rd Ave generally doesn't put meat in their gelato, except a little bit of Spam.

Some excellent food (depending on who on staff made it), but not cheap, can be had at the deli at PCC Natural Market in Fremont.  "PCC" because it's PC but even more so.  They got your vegan, they got your gluten-free, they got your not-processed-in-a-facility-within-3.5-miles-of-peanuts.  Be careful not to get trampled by the yuppies from Getty Images and Adobe.

Does ths have to be done in advance, or can we just do it once we're there?

RAB  it wasnt  clear  if you could do it there ,  so I did it  online...   same  with the shuttle  bus...actually need a reservation for that one.....  for  depart and pickup....  in  any case  it  could save  waiting in lines and filling out  forms  

Nick

BTW......  if  more than 10 people  want to go to a particular attraction at the same time  it is best to call and tell them a group is  coming...like  the  space needle... and others

You can buy it online or at any of the attraction sites.  Of course, if you have the pass already, you can skip the ticket lines........ 

Sid and I have ours already.

See you soon!

Light Rail from SeaTac to Downtown:

This leaves from the airport every 10 minutes and will take us to the last stop (westlake Center) which is just 2 blocks from the hotel. It may be the way to get out of the airport fast and into the city. Just a thought. The fair is $2.75 per person.

Just wanted to add that if you do plan to take light rail from the airport, you need to make your way the the 4th level of the airport parking garage for access to the pedestrian walkway leading to the station.
