      Thanks! That's just what I was looking for.

    2. Here's another option to cross-check your downtown Seattle happy hour with:

      1. I like Dragonfish. Good sushi, curries potato fries and potstickers are frequent picks.

          1. Contour is tough to beat. There are a few edible cheap food items (calamari, meat on a stick), $2 "driftwood ale" (actually Rogue Half-a-weizen by a different name), it lasts until 8pm, and it's rarely so crowded you can't find a seat.

            1. BOKA (very good food half price; esp. good on wednesdays, when their signature cocktails are half off too. Other days standard beer/wine/well specials).
              Elliots as long as you like seafood. The drink specials are standard--cheaper beer and wine and wells.
              Zig Zag has fantastic drink specials on their very high quality cocktails but the food isn't very good.

              1. Union! On 1st and Union, great atmosphere, tasty bites, and some refreshing cocktails. Mmmm . . .

                1. Aside from food and cocktails, what is the best "people" bar? I went to the Red Door in Fremont the other night and it seemed like such a horrific meat market for 18 year-olds I had to leave. What places are low-key, with good beer and nice young professionals 25+?

                    What do you mean by "people"? The red door is a meat market. You may do better at Norm's in Fremont (brown bag it). I like the places where it is less see and be seen. The zoo on eastlake, old pequiliar, Sully's on Phinney, and the Sloop are some of my favorites.

                  2. Umi in Belltown is a favorite of mine- Try it! Think $5-10 for a full meal. I recommend the sashimi and the ginger tofu- The rolls and nigri are fresh and delicious too. Sit at the sushi bar and watch the chefs do their work*
