A few weeks ago we noticed Paul McCartney was coming to town. We obviously both like Beatles, and while I also love his duets with Michael Jackson, we’re pretty weak on our Wings familiarity. But the more we thought about it, the more it seemed like a show we should go to – I mean, he’s 70. The likelihood of Sir Paul touring much more, especially to Seattle, seems pretty thin so we decided to look for cheap seats and count it as a bucket list event. BK succeeded and found us tix for $50 each, so a fun friday day night was in effect!
We parked downtown, and walked over to the Market hoping to check out the new RGB Soda shop but it wasn’t quite open yet. Ready to quench my thirst, we got a quick beer at Pike Brewing while looking for a dinner option (I went with the Dry Wit):
Using our smart phones, we secured a reservation at Steelhead Diner just up the street, which is always delish:
DUNGENESS CRAB & BAY SHRIMP TATER TOTS with Tiger Sauce & Celery Leaf Salad
KASU MARINATED OREGON BLACK COD with Shiitake Mushrooms, Baby Bok Choy & Carrot ~ Ginger Salad
SAUTÉED OREGON PETRALE SOLE with Preserved Lemon, Caper & Parsley Meuniere Sauce
And then it was off to the concert! This was the first show they had done at Safeco Field and it should – getting folks into seats on the field level too a long time so the show started 45 minutes late. It was a beautiful night out and even though we were up at the top, it was a great spot to be – Sir Paul performed for 2.5 hours and in the encore we were even treated to a Nirvana reunion! http://seattletimes.com/html/picturethis/2021431339_paulmccartneyplayssafecofield.html
