commented on The Travesty of Dinner at the Space Needle
@60--well,someone's gotta do it. One can be forgiven for doubting that any more 'official' type news outlets will voice such things. Doncha think?
Never been to Space Needle. Whenever I visit Seattle I have a perfectly great time wandering around neighborhoods, visiting local cafes (LOCAL, not Starbucks-it's not local anymore), meeting interesting locals which Seattle is full of, and eating enjoyable, unpretentious food at local eaterys that fit my student budget. If I want a view, there's mountains around the city. They're pretty tall. And I can just bring a good bottle of wine, drink out of the bottle, and spin around with my hands in the air! It's great fun, the tourist board shoulc promote that more, and it's much less expensive.
At least in St. Louis, by the Arch they have a McDonalds in an old steamboat. Sure, the food sucks but you know what to expect, it's unpretentious.
Why is SkyCity so damn expensive anyway? If they wanted some cred, they could just lower their prices and still the controversy, seems to me.
