I seek the infinite wisdom of our Seattle friends on this blog:
My infinitely-patient fiancee agreed to come with me to see Thin Lizzy (my all-time favorite band) open for Judas Priest at the WaMu on the 29th. We're literally going to see the original drummer, Brian Downey, the 2nd original lead guitar (after Eric Bell quit, they changed from a 3-piece to a 4), Scott Gorham, and a bunch of mercenaries play 9 songs - then we're leaving. It's all a bit nuts, but seeing Lizzy is on my bucket list, and they're not getting any younger. Plus, I get to rock my Villa jersey with 77 LYNOTT on the back. Yeah, baby!
As much as I'd love to support a good Brummie boy and stick around for Judas Priest, it's just not happening, especially if we have to sit through BLS first. Instead, we're going out to dinner! I have my heart set on Olivar (Loire/Catalan fusion? Yes please!), but know very little about how to get there. We're staying at the W, and rather than drive, we'd rather cab or bus. Are cabs plentiful? The restaurant is by the Harvard Exit Theater (no clue)...is there anything to do up there, or are we better off going out elsewhere after dinner? I really appreciate any and all advice.
