Seattle, WA for Seafair

I had never even heard of Seafair until last year when I was up there for a business meeting. What was supposed to be an eight-hour visit to get a few details straightened out ended up becoming a three-day bender on the lake. We still had the meeting and got everything straightened out but our boss was liberally serving whiskey drinks in order to pre-game for the first day of Seafair. I was not mad at this one bit. Whether or not you have read any of my other Jrrnys, I always enjoy a spirit lifting beverage. It is always 5 o’clock somewhere. Any way, my boss and her husband had pretty easily convinced be to skip my return train home and just stay on their boat for the weekend. So I did and it was one-hundred percent worth it. I continued to spend the following two days drinking with the upper-class of society, chatting with everyone from fortunate trust-fund children to billionaire business tycoons and sipping on all kinds of expensive booze. I think we went through 5 bottles of $500 a bottle whiskey and I definitely ended up on a few yachts bigger than my house. All extravagance aside, the weekend was a beautiful gathering of both sober and inebriated mutually enjoying three sun-filled days in Seattle. I highly suggest partaking in Seafair on either a rental or a friends boat if you ever get the chance.

Insider Tip

Make friends with the owner of a boat. Fast.

    Love Seafair! Great post! The other side of the tracks isn’t bad either as long as the Coors light stays cold in the cooler!

Have you done this? What can you add to this jrrny?
