Because the typical tour invariably ends with the winner being accused of doping, then threatening his accuser at a French bistro in Aspen, the crew behind White Moustache's local food excursions have just launched another type of tour inspired by something that goes hand-in-hand with an entirely different kind of drug: Rock 'n Roll. The highlights of this two-hour jaunt include:
Kurt Cobain's House: Hidden by a wall of trees/a towering gate in a particularly schmancy corner of Madrona, the tour stop at the grunge icon's house, made famous by MTV's incessant coverage of his death, includes a disturbing anecdote about his wife digging a Hole in the backyard that you'll just Lov... oh, Nevermind.
The Black & Tan Club: The long-closed B&T was one of The Town's only integrated music spots (hence the name), and is famous for two reasons: it's the first place a 14yr-old Ray Charles performed, and is also where the infamously short-tempered Little Willie John (of "Fever" fame) killed a man, though thankfully not Ray Charles, because then he never would've starred as Willie Beamen in Any Given Sunday. The Central Saloon: The oldest bar in Seattle is where seven people saw Nirvana play their first gig in '87, and is also where the tour'll organize performances by local bands, or at least let you see the shrine that's been erected to Kurt, Jimi, Layne Staley, and Andrew Wood, Seattle rock legends who passed away tragically early, presumably all thinking the same thing at the end, "Wait, why is Little Willie John in my hotel ro--....".
