If you're over 21 and up for some fun, try Toby's Tavern, 8 N.W. Front, a local hangout in an 1890s-era former beer parlor. Grab a window table or a seat at the mirrored bar and order a pint of the Parrot Red ale brewed in Anacortes. Mussels are $11 for a pound including garlic bread. The goldfish crackers are free.Oh, and the mussels are divine. The beer ain't bad, either. But if the halibut fish and chips are in season, they are not to be missed.
Thanks again to link guru CBT for the heads up.
P.S. While we are on the subject of the PNW, any Sonics fan has got to be psyched about this article. Durant at SG? As PJ Carlesimo circumloquaciously puts it: "He's like -- he's not like Magic Johnson at all -- but he's like Magic in that you can play him probably any of four positions, if not five." Hot. Go Supes!
