10th Annual Pike Place Market Busker’s Festival
14 September 2011, 1:49 pm

If you’re in Downtown Seattle this weekend, stop by the Pike Place Market to celebrate the 10th Annual Busker’s Festival at Pike Place Market!  Though hard to imagine the market could get any livelier, with 3 sound stages and over 35 performers, this annual festival does the job!  This festival is the only one of its kind produced by and for buskers, who share a collective passion of bringing music to the streets.  For centuries, the art of busking, or street performing, has occurred all over the world.  Pike Place Market has become the home of many well-known buskers that provide the soundtrack to the market experience. 

This year the festival will run from 11am-5pm, Sunday, September 18th.  Visitors staying at the Inn at the Market can enjoy the festivities from our 5th floor water view deck, overlooking the bustling Pike Place Market.

New Production of Les Miz at 5th Ave Theatre
10 August 2011, 1:57 pm

Looking for things to do in Seattle on your next visit?  Premiering last night at the 5th Ave Theatre, the 25th Anniversary production of Les Miserables is breaking box office records!  Here are just some of the great reviews of this production direct from the 5th Ave Theatre:

The London Times hails the new show “a five star hit, astonishingly powerful.” The Star-Ledger says “a dynamically re-imagined hit. This ‘LES MISÉRABLES’ has improved with age” and NY1-TV proclaims “this new production actually exceeds the original. The storytelling is clearer, the perspective grittier and the motivations more honest. Musical theatre fans can rejoice: ‘Les Miz’ is born again.”

The current production runs August 9-27, and tickets are available here.  The 5th Ave Theatre is located in downtown Seattle, and just a short walk from the Inn at the Market.

Farm Days at Pike Place Market
28 July 2011, 1:48 pm

We are in the swing of things down here at Pike Place Market!  Looking for things to do in Seattle?  Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from June through September, local farmers come and share their bounty with visitors and locals alike in the heart of Seattle, here at Pike Place Market. It’s always great to be so close to a variety of fresh produce, but during the summer months, it could not be better.  We no longer have to think, “what’s for dinner”?  Just peruse the farm fresh stands for the season’s best greens, herbs, fruits and veggies, and the inspiration will come to you!  Heirloom tomato salad, fresh berry cobbler, grilled corn and avocado salad?  Yes please!  We see many of our guests here at the Inn at the Market, dining al fresco on our water view deck enjoying their finds from the farm stands. 

 Just one more thing to love about Seattle…..

Summer Fun at the Olympic Sculpture Park
30 June 2011, 5:11 pm

The Seattle Art Museum is kicking off their summer season with the “GET OUT!” campaign.  Get Out Summer at SAM includes many different events spread throughout the summer, but our favorite is the “Get Out Summer Season” at the Olympic Sculpture Park.  The park has already been updated with several new works of art, we recommend checking out the installation A Better Promise (pictured above), where visitors can participate by depositing their own bottle caps in the installation.  Though we are looking forward to the Yoga and Zumba in the park, we have to say that the Thursday night’s Picnic in the Park featuring local food trucks and live music is at the top of our list.  Check out a list of participating food trucks and menu items on the event calendar here.

Other fun events include SAM Remix, the Salmon Return Festival, and Party in the Park.  Check out details for these events and more here.   These special events kick off next Thursday, July 7th and run through September 15th.  We love that Seattle offers such a great outdoor area to enjoy those sacred summer days.  The Olympic Sculpture Park is a short walk from the Inn at the Market and the Seattle Waterfront.  Check it out!

Do you love coffee as much as we do?
14 June 2011, 3:33 pm

We understand that it can be a love/hate relationship.  We love having so much great coffee to choose from, but we hate that it has such a pull on us!  If you are as mesmerized by the magic coffee bean as we are, you would be equally intrigued by the Seattle Coffee Crawl.  One of several tours offered by Seattle By Foot, this two hour tour is getting a lot of buzz for it’s low down on coffee history and culture, and of course, all that robust coffee flavor.  This scenic walking tour covering coffee houses and coffee roasters, gives visitors some fun filled facts about how Seattle became the “Capital of Coffee”.

Tours depart at 10am from Seattle’s Best Coffee , located in Pike Place Market, Thursday-Saturday and Mondays.

Discover Seattle! / I postulate........

I postulate that any genuinely major technical advance would destroy the world.

Teleportation, FTL travel, free energy, anti-gravity....any of those things would completely destroy the economic and social structures of the world and plunge it into chaos like never seen beofre.

Whole industries would collapse overnight, taking the financial pinnings of the planet with it.

Telelportation alone would make obsolete nearly everything we do, and how we do it. All trucking, moving, and transportation-related industries would die off in a heartbeat, along with the social structures that both supported and used them. Total world-wide collapse of most industry and manufacturing business would follow, and it might not be the kind of thing that we'd survive.

If 90% of the jobs today suddenly disappeared due to something like this, can ou imagine the anarchy that would ensue?

Anyone here like (or ever heard of) Stanislaw Lem? He's written a lot of very funny, extremely satirical Sci-Fi, but also some serious stuff like [a href=""]Solaris[/a]. (The original Russian version was better IMHO, but it's also really long.)

Funny stuff:

Pirx The Pilot (good)
The Futurological Congress (REALLY good)
The Cyberiad: Fables for the Cybernetic Age (also REALLY good)

Then to hell with those asswipes. Let 'em stew in their own juices if that's the way they behave.

What are the things you think are bad about it.  You mentioned slowing down things, but this thing responds like lightning,  can you tell me what else ?

I bet it'll run a whole lot faster with Norton turned off (or not installed) than it will with it on.

Every PC I've ever put Norton went into slow-motion like an attorney waiting to see who'll pick up the check. It loads a ton of system hooks, DLLs, and extra stuff that just loads the system down.

What security software do you run, admin?

I use [a href=""]AVG anti-virus[/a] (free),  [a href=""]ZoneAlarm[/a] (also the free version) and I have a cheapo hardware firewall/router box that ran me about $49 or so a couple of years ago. The firewall box is probably what's kept 99% of the shit out there at bay. If I go to the "Check My Security" sites (like [a href=""]Shields Up[/a]), most of them report that they can't even tell there's a PC on my end.

ZoneAlarm is run just so I can see if somethingis trying to get out, and its amazing how much stuff wants to 'phone home' these days.
