Last Saturday, the girls and I hit up a speakeasy in Capitol Hill.
Ok, so not officially, because fortunately we are past the days of Prohibition, but it was still super fun! We went to Tavern Law and had some fantastic cocktails. Then we had to pick up the phone next to the giant-sized mystery door to see if they could accomodate four lovely ladies on a Saturday night in the speakeasy-themed bar, Needle and Thread. We got a big "nope" at first, but we waited awhile and Steph gave them her number for when seats opened up. So we waited. And waited. Until finally after an hour, it was our turn to see what exactly was on the other side of the door.
I would hate to spoil it for you, but it was awesome! Super quiet. Comfy seats. (A little bit of an annoying leaky pipe that kept dripping on Mads.) They don't have a cocktail menu, so you tell them what you normally drink and what you're looking for and they'll put together a mystery concoction! (Steph's may have included an egg white... but it was sure tasty!)
Overall, I'd give it two thumbs up and encourage everyone to give it a try!
"Um, don't you just want to get your picture taken with Jackie O?!" -man on right
"I would never miss such an opportunity!" -me
(In retrospect, looking at the picture, the guy on the left is actually rather cute. I just couldn't really see past the whig. Or maybe it was the red dress? We suspect they just came from the Red Dress Party in South Lake Union. Ooooor, they just couldn't pass up the stunning dresses hanging in their closets. I know the feeling...)
