Tomorrow's Thanksgiving, so you're probably busy figuring out how to explain what you do for a living to your uncle, or why last year's fried turkey experiment failed so spectacularly, but you really should take a few moments to be thankful for the fact that you don't live in (ewww!) Portland, and for a few other things we thought of...
We're thankful "Baby Got Back" is no longer the most/only successful rap song outta Seattle.
We’re thankful you can get an amazing cup of coffee on almost any street in the city... all without ever setting foot in a Starbucks. Except maybe that one on Capitol Hill where they serve beer.
We're thankful we live in a city where there are are 60+ craft breweries. And where you can get a burger with four different kinds of meat, a fried egg, a fried green tomato, etc.
We’re thankful for our charming, Emmy Award-winning, and gloriously mustachioed weatherman Steve Pool. Just not for his ability to actually predict the weather with any kind of accuracy.
We're thankful Pioneer Square's making a comeback, that Bloody Mary's come with sliders now, and for places like The Old Sage, Rock Creek, etc.
We’re thankful Russell Wilson led us to our first Super Bowl victory! Seriously, when you suck at sports as much as Seattle, being 10-1 is basically like wining the Super Bowl.
We're thankful, that J&D's Foods -- who make thinks like POWER BACON™ Deodorant: For When You Sweat Like A Pig (seriously!) -- has made Seattle the bacon capitol of the world.
We’re thankful that, with just under six years to go until 2019, Seattle hasn't started to look at all like James Cameron predicted in Dark Angel. We NOT thankful that the city is home to precisely zero girls as hot as Jessica Alba.
We're thankful they totally got the Mercer Mess cleaned up and no one ever has to worry about cross-town traffic again! Yay!!!
And we're thankful that marijuana is, well, if not quite legal yet (are they ever gonna figure out how to sell it?!) then no longer illegal in Washington. Though you probably figured that out when we started talking about fried turkeys, and burgers with four kinds of meat, and bacon everything, etc.
