Saturday night restaurant for PaCommEx

Post by rbernardo »

In the tradition of CommVEx and other C= shows, on Saturday we go out for dinner at a restaurant near the event. I won't be back to Seattle until November (well, that's the plan), but I did a Net search for likely Saturday night eating establishments. See

https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurants ... ngton.html

(Note that not all of these restaurants are still in business or are open on Saturday night.)

The requirements for a PaCommEx restaurant would be:

good food at good prices,

seating for 10 to 25 attendees (not all attendees would want to go out for dinner),

less than 0.5 miles away (within easy walking distance),

and adequate parking (just in case some attendees don't want to walk). If there is no easy parking at the nearby restaurant, then hopefully we can leave our cars in the Living Computer Museum parking lot, and then we can walk to that restaurant.

Back in California,

I've scouted north and south of the Living Computers: Museum + Labs, and I'm taking Stephen Jones' advice. Three blocks to the north of museum, at 1721 1st Avenue South is Hooverville Bar, an unassuming place from the outside, but inside it has plenty of room for a lot of people.

Though the photos at the website don't show the dining tables, they do have them. As Stephen puts it, if you want pizza, drinks, and arcade games, then go to Hooverville. The hours are accommodating, too, from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m.. However, because it is a bar, no one under 21 years of age is permitted to be there.
