NFT Seattle Montlake

Montlake

Essentials
This classy, educated neighborhood borders the bucolic Arboretum, the wooded ravines of Interlaken Park, and the Montlake Cut connecting Lake Union and Lake Washington. The venerable Seattle Yacht Club presides west of the bridge. The spiffy Montlake Branch Library attracts local brainiacs, and regattas draw rowers to May's raucous first day of boating season. Beware--traffic chokes Montlake on Husky game days and during drawbridge openings.

Sundries/Entertainment
Little wonder no one leaves Montlake--we could live happily ever after being charmed by the Café Lago family, drinking wine and devouring blissfully delicious rustic Italian fare. Mont's MarketSee more.

Bruce Lee's Grave
After 3 years of trying to find Bruce Lee's grave, I made it my mission to track him down the next time a visitor came. Luckily, these guests were big into Martial Arts so they enjoyed our hunt for the karate chopper. I scored some vague directions and we were off. When you enter the Lakeview Cemetery, head up the hill and look for the flagpole. Of course every time I've been the flagpole wasn't up, so just look for a large pole that isn't a part of a grave. Once you've found that you're merely steps away. If you don't see kids standing around his spot, then just head northeast and you've made it. Besides just seeing the grave you'll find the mementos left behind from others who want to pay their respect. Bums could make a killing (no pun) with all the quarters placed around the tombstone, and feast on the tangerines laid around the plot. Mr. Lee shares a small space with his son, Brandon, and the rest of his family. Just make sure when you find him you tell him I say him, because knowing my memory I'll never find him again.
