The AFK Tavern is amazing. Full stop.
Where else can you get a menu that looks like an RPG rulebook and has items like the Poached Spaghetti Monster, +2 Tots, or the Reaver (I had that, it’s huge…). You can check out their online menu, but really just go check the place out. It’s well worth it.
First, a few photosynths from the hotel where the conference was:
Yes, I flew into Seattle for the Usenix Security Symposium. Yes, my parents flew into Portland for a wedding. Yes, we want to go to Vancouver for dinner, despite that fact that it’s a two and a half hour drive away from Seattle. What’s so hard about that Mr. Border Crossing guy?
Since we were in Seattle and since my father is a huge Jimi Hendrix buff, we had to go to the EMP Museum (formerly known as both the Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame or EMP|SFM). Basically, it has exhibits all about Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, AC/DC and probably a number of others, along with a room full of science fiction memorabilia and another dedicated to James Cameron’s Avatar. I highly recommend checking it out if you’re in the Seattle area and into either music or science fiction (particularly if you’re do both).
