    Volume

    Located in Pioneer Square, this club has a vibe similar to that of its neighbors Trinity and Aura. Low, white leather couches on raised platforms are reserved for VIPs, and the DJ's play mixes of Top 40 hits. A request on Volume's Facebook page... More on Volume »

  • Conor Byrne

    Conor Byrne

    Narrow bars like the Conor Byrne Pub remind me of train cars. I love walking through the door and having the entire scene stretch out before me. The elaborate bar made of dark wood, the big brick wall, the tiny little stage in the corner, the... More on Conor Byrne »

  • The Pink Door

    The Pink Door

    With its perch above Pike Place Market and a menu studded with salads and risottos, the 30-year old Pink Door has all the trappings of a destination for ladies who lunch. It's pretty tough to beat the outdoor seating at the Pink Door, one of the... More on The Pink Door »

  • Tractor Tavern

    Tractor Tavern

    In today’s high-tech world, branding means everything. Ironically, one of the most reliable and identifiable music venues in town regularly hosts bands that draw their influence from the pre-computer age. For those with a hankerin’ for some... More on Tractor Tavern »

  • Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub

    Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub

    Ireland meets the Pacific Northwest in this Pike Place Market back-alley pub, whose dim wooden rooms seem like they should smell like peat smoke and potato farmers (but don't) and where even craft-beer snobs will be tempted away from their brew... More on Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub »

  • I Love My GFF

    I Love My GFF

    Situated on the outskirts of the food truck cluster of South Lake Union, the food cart GFF resembles more of a hot dog stand than a bona fide food enterprise. But this cute cart could not be any more different than a hot dog stand. I Love My... More on I Love My GFF »

  • Charlie's Buns 'N Stuff

    Charlie's Buns 'N Stuff

    Don't forget to try the buffalo chicken cheese balls, spicy, gooey two-inch-in-diameter globs that seems like they'd be best paired with drinking a six pack and watching people play some competitive game on TV. These fried balls pack pieces of... More on Charlie's Buns 'N Stuff »

    • Stalked by a shape-shifting, DNA-infiltrating alien on their Antarctic base, Kurt Russell and company dissolve into mutual suspicion and distrust. The beast could be inside any of them, so you have to shoot your pal—or incinerate him with a flamethrower—without hesitation to save your own skin. John Carpenter’s 1982 The Thing is a reverse guys-on-a-mission flick, where unit cohesion falters and leader turns against crew. It’s morning in America, and utter darkness at the South Pole. The 1951 original came during the Cold War, when sci-fi... More on Egyptian »

    • Mel Brooks' inspired 1974 spoof is probably his best movie, affectionately rooted in the James Whale originals (particularly Bride of Frankenstein) yet knowingly updated with innuendo and vaudeville. Gene Wilder stars as the reluctant mad scientist who's determined not to follow in his grandfather's footsteps. The great Madeline Kahn plays his fiancée, destined to end up with quite another man (er, monster, played by Peter Boyle). Marty Feldman is the goggle-eyed hunchback. Wilder and Brooks are both credited with the script, which includes... More on Egyptian »
