    I should probably mention that the Starbucks in Bellevue is closed on weekends.

    I believe Matt's Famous Chili Dogs was demolished as well. Not positive though.

    There are about 10 Starbucks in downtown and a few are open on weekends.

    Also the chili dog place has been straight leveled.

    Oh man, they tore down the DQ? That was the only place I went to for food last year.

    Actually, wait, forcing me to go somewhere else will be a good thing.


    Hey, and Rank

    valve is on the tenth floor of a building that isn't very far from the meydenbauer, but i'm not sure they'd be happy about people taking the elevator up there and throwing crowbars out the door into the lobby

    bungie is in kirkland and they have fucking security so fat chance of anybody getting in there

    Who said anything about throwing? We're going to reverently lay them by the door as offerings.

    there is no fucking door

    unless you plan on stepping out into the lobby and revealing your identity then you will need to throw them out of the elevator into the lobby

    So it's even more like that scene in The Matrix Reloaded than I would have expected.

    Also, I bet their office has the slowest elevator in the known universe. And the lights go off while you're waiting for it.

    Yes, but the fucking subjunctive present is kicking my ass.
    Most verbs form their subjunctive stem from the third person plural of the present indicative.

    Seriously. What the fuck? It's like their aim isn't to actually teach the language, but instead throw out as many grammar buzzwords within the space of a sentence as they can.

    Question to you guys, what shopping/entertainment experiences should I include on the map? I've already got Gamestop, Anime Kingdom, Lincoln Square and the galleria on there, but am stumped for what else to include. Best Buy?

    I'm thinking I'll print out a few large color ones to hang up at PAX. I'll have to run it by my lead enforcer, but I think it might help people and it'll give me something to while away the hours.

    I'm also going to add ATMs and banking centers so it will seem even more cluttered and illegible.

    There's an ATM inside of the Meydenbauer center, and given the lack of National City banks on the west coast, one ATM is as good as another as far as i'm concerned.

    Yes, but that ATM ran out of money in the first two hours of PAX... both times.

    So what banks do people use? WaMu and Bank of America are the big ones around here as far as I know, but there's also KeyBank and Wells Fargo.

    Here in Cleveland, we have a building called the terminal tower, it's about 42 stories tall and is of cool ass art deco styling. At one time it was the tallest building outside of NYC. In the 1990s, Key Back (called Society Bank at the time) built what is now known as Key Tower next to the old historical Society Building (which was very short, maybe 5-7 stories). Nobody had built a building taller than ther Terminal Tower in Cleveland out of respect. Key Bank threw that respect away and built a building slightly taller. Therefore, I hate them and their bank sucks. Plus in terms of their banking regulations, they also suck.

    I know it's true, my Dad had KeyBank for a while, until they tried to overdraft him for close to $1000 off of three or so charges.

    It's not, however, helpful. What banks DO you guys use? The only major banks I know around Meydenbauer are Wells Fargo, KeyBank, Bank of America, and Washington Mutual.

    There are other, lesser known banks like Umpqua, China Trust, etc. What banks should I look for?

    I heard they give you wampum when you withdraw. Just what I heard.

    As for entertainment at night, there is little else in Bellevue aside from what you listed. For shopping, Bellevue Square and the surrounding block or so should fit anyone's needs.

    Indeed. I usually have it as an avatar of myself doing something silly, but it got changed to this in the greaty winky invasion of '06, so I just left it like that.

    I dont' think parties need to be exclusivized to specific groups (except for the Canadians because they hate our beer), being that there will be an insane amount of parties going on and to limit yourself to one with people from your state causes a couple of problems. One, your party might be lame, and if you're so adamant of sticking to your party, you might miss a really cool party. Two, you won't meet nearly as many people if you limit your party to your locale. That said, PARTY IN POD 6, y'all!

    Just a note... don't bother going to the Azteca in Bellevue, that's the worst Azteca in the whole chain... they give smaller portions and take forever to get you food.

    I'll definately recommend Red Robin though, bottomless steak fries and bottomless Strawberry Lemonade FTW.

    However, they cut you off after like two alcoholic drinks, apparently. I've never tried, myself.
