The Georgetown neighborhood is Seattle's best kept hipster secret and I think a lot of people like it that way, so keep what I'm about to tell you on the proverbial D.L. Georgetown Liquor Company rules. Sure it possesses an unassuming moniker, is tucked away inconveniently (aurally speaking) next to active cargo train tracks, but that's why one's able to head there on a weekend and have no trouble getting a service. And that's hardly the best part. I have good news and I have better news. The GOOD news is that G.L.C. serves a huge menu full of 100% vegetarian (and approximately 38% vegan) sandwiches and salads with nerdy names (Sulu Skewers, Darth Reuben). And ooh boy, are they delicious. If you do cheese, you will be over the moon about the Luna. The BETTER news is that you can relive your childhood (this time with booze!) by indulging in a bevy of Atari, classic or Super NES games on one of 3 set-ups. If you can reminisce (about) it, they have it. But be warned before you start the trash talking. Unless you're Steve Wiebe, you're probably a little rusty at Donkey Kong.

Be A Man

Come dressed in some combination of black, work boots, Carhartts, motorcycle jacket, and a million tattoos, and you will blend in beautifully. The good news is that even if you show up without getting the wardrobe memo, you'll get excellent service and only a handful of curious looks. With Bon Jovi on the stereo and screechingly loud trains passing by every fifteen minutes or so, sometimes the place gets a little overwhelming. Just roll with it. You'll be eternally grateful you plugged your ears (every fifteen minutes or so) and stuck with it for (1) the extensive selection of über-manly vegetarian food made with faux meat produced up the street at The Field Roast Grain Meat Co; (2) an awesome collection of free-to-play Atari and NES video games; and (3) Sunday movie night. To top it off, the place is 21+ so you get none of the raucous, over-flowing family gatherings you'd find up the street at Stellar’s Pizza. And now that you’ve got the memo, dress appropriately.
