It's never too early to start planning! I booked a flight home 3 months ago to Columbus for Labor Day weekend. Surprising my dad for his 60th birthday. Can't wait to watch the game with my family and eat all of the Benny's pizza. (If you've never been to Benny's in Marysville, it's WORTH THE DRIVE from Columbus.) Sticking around that following week and taking my girlfriend to her first Buckeye game against the Rainbow Warriors.
Watched the show last night... all 6 episodes. Hilarious! Thanks for the recommendation. Hopefully they do a second season.
Dustin Johnson or Bubba Watson. Longest course in US Open history I believe, so I'll take the power hitters. Gotta like Spieth as well because of his consistency and caddy.
Also... PNW is the BEST!
Linga, I'm a little late here but I just saw that you asked... I live in the Central District and work in Pioneer Square. Moved out here from Columbus after graduating in 2013. What about you?
Restaurants I'd recommend... Coastal Kitchen, Skillet Diner, Lost Lake Cafe. All of those are located in Capitol Hill.
Beer/Whiskey... Radiator Whiskey by Pikes Market and Chucks Hop Shop in the Central District. Chucks has over 100 different beers on tap.
The Seattle waterfront is currently under construction and is a mess so I wouldn't really recommend going down there for anything other than Pikes Market. If you go into Beecher's cheese at the market they usually have free cheese samples in the back. AMAZING stuff!
Would also recommend visiting Volunteer Park. There's an old water tower in the park that you can go to the top of and get a great 360 view of the city and it's FREE.
Fremont and Ballard also have a lot to offer.
Enjoy your trip!
I wouldn't really say there is one specific street but Capitol Hill's Pike/Pine corridor has a TON of bars/restaurants/music venues.
Did you guys hear the one about the corduroy pillow?... It was making headlines everywhere
9 AM PST :(
Lets go Brownies!
From that OSU/MSU thread...
An Oregon fan...
"I'm the duck who lives in Detroit. I moved to Michigan with no dog in this fight. But after encountering jackoffs like this guy time and time again, I've come to realize that aOSU fans are collectively the worst kind of douchebags you'd ever want to strangle.
UM fans are arrogant pricks, but they've never yelled "faggot" at me or called my wife an ugly cunt because I was wearing an oregon t-shirt in Ann Arbor. Both of those things happened to me in Columbus. Either way, I'm with MBG--rip those fuckeye tits off and beat them with their own severed man-tits."
I don't think he likes us...
This has nothing to do with the Skully, but... I'm making the 2,000 mile journey tomorrow morning for the game on Saturday. I'll see all my fellow 11-dubbers at the game. Keep an eye out for me, I'll be wearing an Ohio State sweatshirt.
Benny's Pizza in Marysville. I get serious cravings for this stuff since I moved out West. Similar to Donatos but WAY better. Also have really good chicken wings & ribs. Normally have live music on the weekends.
I'm flying home for a week next Friday (haven't been home since Christmas, VERY EXCITED) and plan on eating here at least 2-3 times.
You forgot to italicize for sarcasm...
I'll be flying in from Seattle!
