I love Seattle. I've visited this town more than any other besides L.A. -- leaving the Bay Area and D.C. aside, since I lived in both places -- and am always delighted to be back. Though I'll admit to missing the Kingdome's odd Michelin Man-like presence south of downtown, the core of the city remains extremely attractive to me, particularly at night. The sight of the "Smooth Building" alone brought joy to my heart. Now I'm off to find my first meal of a day that started at 4am this morning thinking about how I needed to get up and finish 100 different tasks that I ended up putting off until 4:30am. Yes, I'm ravenous.
