Happy Thanksgiving Day to all my fabulous Canadian friends.
Outdoor art at The Pink Door, Seattle.
I have enjoyed visits to Seattle several times over the years, often wishing
I could have spent longer getting to know the city better.
This quick visit - really just half a day before heading to the airport to
catch the red-eye home - was quite enough! A fast walk through the aways colorful
Pike Place Market, a drink at the Athenian Bar overlooking the water watching
the Ferris wheel turn as the ferries sailed back and forth between the islands of
Elliot Bay, and, as always, the visit topped off with a delicious dinner at my favorite restaurant.
The PINK DOOR is just that, an unmarked pink painted door in narrow, quaint Post Alley.
Enter the door . . . . down the steep stairs . . . . . the space is cozy with dining rooms, a bar,
a stage for evening cabaret and burlesque, piano, even a trapeze, and opens
onto water views from a lovely shaded lattice covered dining deck.
The staff are friendly and totally laid back. Many are heavily tattooed, with
multi-colored hair and unusual jewelry and clothing - all seem to love their jobs
and some have waited tables there for years. The food, American-Italian
I think my only reason nowadays to be 'sleepless in Seattle',
is if I'm offered dinner at The Pink Door!
Flying in to Seattle.
