seattle day tour

Recycling is good. Like recycling of an email I just sent to a friend who is in town for a couple days. I haven't been out too much around here but enough to recommend a day of stuff to do before heading up to Vancouver:

Happy Hour
It's always 5 o'clock at McCormick & Schmick's--except, of course, from 3 to 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. to midnight, when fancy snacks like oyster shooters, bay shrimp cocktail, and New York-style "counter burgers" (with fries!) cost a mere $1.95. 3-6p.m., 10p.m.-midnight daily

You must eat Crab Pot for lunch or dinner (dinner can get busy) --you get a bib and a mallet and a bucket of seafood dumped on the table. Simon's favorite. I would recommend going for lunch tomorrow and then hitting Pike Place Market before going to the Underground Tour

Bruce Lee's grave -- Capitol hill
The cemetery address is, Lakeview Cemetery 1554 15th. Ave. E Seattle, WA -- look for the flagpole. it's nearby in among some hedges

Red Hook Beer Tour -- Woodinville
http://www.redhook.com/ $1 beer tours in woodinville very close to bothell. And you get a free souvenir cup

Ballard Locks -- you can see the water change levels and go downstairs to see salmon swim upstream
Hiram M. Chittenden Locks3015 NW 54th St Seattle, WA 98107Tel 206 783 7059

And unless youre on some angsty path of self destruction, dont eat dim sum in Seattle, it is HORRIBLE.

In Vancouver try to hit (my 2 favourite restaurants):

Guu on Robson http://www.guu-izakaya.com/robson.html

Kiyo in Richmond (best sushi hands down anywhere, and good prices)

Have you eaten dim sum in Hawai'i? Just curious to know how the dim sum I know measures up.

I heard there is not a lot of Chinese food in Seattle and one of my friends theorizes that it is related to the Chinese being kicked out way back when.
