so I did a wedding on Saturday night at the Chinese Room -- http://www.chineseroom.com -- and took some pics from the balcony. It's on the 35th floor of a building called the Smith Tower and the views are completely spectacular, as you can see below. (the room itself isn't half bad with the carved chinese ceiling and interesting art/furnishings, but it's a bitch and a half to cater at.)

sorry, the resolution when it's blown up this big isn't the best (Photobucket reduces the size automatically, so it's really a better pic than this shows.)

No, no, no....YOU ARE THE COOLER ONE, BABE !

As always SV, thanks for the pics! Carkeek park! Hahaha...I grew up 2 minutes from there! Greenwood/Ballard, baby!
I wish that everyone could see Puget Sound and how amazing it is in reality.
Seattle is SOLID, my homies B) ! Anyone who loves nature and just down right cool-ass-funktified-peeps-that keep-it-real, needs to head up to the Pacific NW. Nuff said! WESTSIIIIIDE :greenguy:

Damn! I need to get back up there

yay for Greenwood & Ballard! ahahaha! I'm in the Wedgwood/Ravenna area, just a couple blocks from Matthews Beach. So come visit up here already!!!

I Love Tony! I have no idea how I would spend my nights or work hours without some TP action. I'd probably be doing drugs.

The should have it as a commecial.

Hahaha No, no, no....you're the cooler one! Hey SV, have you been to Rays Boathouse on Shilshole bay? Yay or Nay, I'm taking you there when I head back up (no exceptions )! If you're a seafood lover, it's one of the best place to go in the US.

I just love the vibe of these boards! I thank all of my beloved TPunk homies who have brought life, personality, humor, dignity, inspiration, motivation, aid, and character to these boards. You have all carried out the proactive vision that I was determined to fulfill from the conception of this site.

TPUNKS RAWK!!! B)

Seattle rawks! As much as I love Vancouver, Seattle kicks the crap out of Van for nightlife. Especially if you like hip hop. We go down at least twice a year just to go to the bars.

Last year we went down on the Fourth of July for the fireworks, then hit Pioneer Square and drank the bars closed. Then myself and two of my Canadian buddies capped off the night with a stirring/drunken rendition of the 'Star Spangled Banner' inside the buck-a-slice pizza shop in the Square. Which prompted a few confused Americans (who, incidentally, did NOT sing along) to ask us, "Aren't you from Canada? How do you know all the words?"

Very simply, "Hockey, dude. Hockey."

Mhhhhh....I guess Seattle is now on my 'must visit' city! I did drive past it on a road trip but didn't have time to stop...

And yeah, life without TPunk is like life without s*x!

I posted more pics! here they are-- the first 3 pics of the seattle skyline, taken from a ferry boat on the way to Bainbridge Island, looking east across the sound. The white arch-thing on the far far right is our new Seahawks stadium. Oh, excuse me-- Qwest Stadium.
