We had a great night tonight at the First Thursday Art Walk. We ended up running into a number of people we know, bought some great art - Janet Miller http://www.plantejanetart.com/ - and just had a great time.
We tried Collin's Pub in Pioneer Square for dinner. It has a great beer selection, with tons of local and interesting brews; we split 4 schooners - one of which was from the new greenwood brewery, Naked City - and the food was good to great, with a significant amount of interesting game on the menu - I had the elk. This brings up a good point that it would not be a great choice for a vegetarian. It's definitely a gastropub, which I like, but it has multiple TV that are viewable from most any seat in the house which makes it feel kinda like a sports pub. I'm not at all into TVs so this would be my one significant complaint about the place.
