Publisher's Notebook: Conspiracies in Seattle

National Office

Don’t you hear it’s always drizzling in Seattle? We spent most of last week there, and even our weather app said it was drizzling. But that was not the case—we had beautiful sunshine every day, like the sky above 772-foot-high 1201 Third Ave that we snapped Friday.

And here’s 580-foot US Bank Centre the day before. Clearly Seattleites have invented an urban myth about the weather to keep tourists at bay.

We loved eating at the counter of celebrity chef Tom Douglas’ hugely popular latest restaurant, TanakaSan. He and four other top names on Seattle’s frenzied food scene will be speakers at our Bisnow Restaurant Development Summit in Seattle on March 19.

Who knew that foodies helped fix the Super Bowl? These were the signs above the restaurant stove. (The number 12, for you tourists, is the nickname for the city’s rabid fans who helped propel the Seahawks to victory—the “12th man" on the squad.) Maybe a secret code could help the Redskins.
