Where to stay when attending PNB performances

I also opted for the Link Light Rail up from SeaTac, and I think I would do so again. I use the local affiliate of GO Airport Shuttle here in Chicago which sometimes improvises a round-about route, depending where the passengers on board that time are going (and sometimes depending whether one of their vehicles has broken down somewhere). While it picks me up and drops me off at my door, I'm a little more relaxed on a regularly scheduled train because of its greater predictability, though I could share the popular dislike of the high fare on the Monorail in comparison with other transportation. The passengers on my (mid-day) trips on it were mostly tourists, I think, and the operating personnel were well prepared for us.

Speaking of which: After being told at Taylor that they don't serve coffee (in Seattle?), I was startled to look up from my oyster stew to see my server hurrying down the sidewalk outside with a styrofoam cup of take-away coffee in his hand, which he then put down on my table with a smile. (Turns out there's a specialist coffee shop on the next corner.) Seattle seems to be more like that than the City of the Big Shoulders, Hog Butcher to the World, where I live.

There's a specialist coffee shop on almost every corner!

I'm glad that you got what you wanted, and that you had a good time in my home town!
