Hitting The Road Again
Pacific NW 2011 Map
Well, I'm back on the road again. I flew to
this morning by way of Newark, NJ (Why do I always end up in Newark?). The plan is to tour parts of the Pacific
West, as well as a few other area's along the way. Some of the highlights of this trip should include Mt. St. Helens,
Hughes' Spruce Goose, The Bonneville Salt Flats, The Great Salt Lake and lots of good food. Of Course I have a few surprises up my sleeve too.
My Flight landed in
at 12noon, I picked up my rental car (a 2012
Escalade with 8
on it). Then I headed to the Space Needle, I'm sure in 1962 this was an engineering marvel. Today, not so much, but it is still cool. It just seemed dwarfed by the surrounding buildings.
View of Seattle
You do get a nice view of
from up there. How many Starbucks can you spot in this photo?
Bizzarro Italian Cafe
Then I checked into my hotel and went to diner at Bizzarro Italian Cafe. You know your in for a unique experience when your greeted with a sign that says "Nobody is Fine with water". Then you start to notice the rest of the decor, including a fully set table hanging upside-down from the ceiling. I believe this restaurant was started by a bunch of theatre actors that found they were getting more experiance running restaurants than they were at acting. So they opened Bizzarro.
Clams with Linguinie
WOW, What a diner. This has to be one of the best meals I have ever eaten. I had the Clam Linguini, fresh Manila clams From the Puget sound tossed with
made linguini in a white wine butter sauce with crispy
cured pancetta and roasted jalapeno. I normally would shy away from someting with jalapenos, but this was the perfect amount of heat.
