The Happiest Hour
The University District's Cafe Racer
Definition: A type of motorcycle, built to be especially fast; a term born in '60s Europe, referring to a specific motorcyclist counterculture; a wildly revered neighborhood bar and eatery in the U-District, the main draws of which are...
The OBAMA: The Official Bad Art Museum of Art—a multimedia treasury of forgotten masterpieces. (Highlights include Jesus portrayed in an arrangement of Peeps and the haunting "Lobster Lady," wherein a woman mournfully regards her lobster. The lobster's apparent hopefulness only compounds the piece's devastation.)
Cafe Razor: It's a mini hair salon that occupies a separate division of the lounge. (Bonus if you're into misshapen naked ladies—Razor also doubles as the OBAMA's sexy-art division!)
Happy hours: Daily 4–7 pm.
Happy-hour drink specials: $1.25 Rainier tallboys, $1.50 PBR drafts, $3.75 drafts (Pike's Kilt Lifter, Nine Pound Porter), $3.50 well drinks, $5 well calls.
Happy-hour food specials: None, but there are plenty of remarkably budget-friendly options on the late-night menu ($1.95 grilled cheese, $2.95 tater tots).
