Bobble Those Heads!
Yesterday we went to a Seattle Mariners baseball game with some friends of ours, and it just so happened that it was Ken Griffey Jr. bobblehead night (OK, it wasn’t a coincidence), which meant that the first 30,000 fans got a free bobblehead. Yes, we were lucky enough to acquire said bobblehead. Great! What do you do with something like that? We’re not sure yet. Anyway, we all got our bobbleheads and then went across the street to Jimmy’s on First (http://www.jimmysonfirst.com/) for dinner. They serve American fare, like hamburgers, steak, fries, sandwiches, etc. Bee had a very tasty hamburger and Curly went for the crab macaroni and cheese (she is a sucker for really good macaroni and cheese). Yes, you read that right. CRAB in macaroni and cheese. It was pretty much pure heaven. The sauce was made of four kinds of cheeses and it had fresh crab mixed into it. And as if that wasn’t enough, it was topped off with an entire crab leg split right down the middle. Mmm. Yum.
We polished off our food and went back across the street to Safeco Field for the baseball game. When we went into the restaurant the weather was beautiful, but when we came back out for the game it was raining. Grrr. That meant that the roof was closed on the field, but it turned out to be fine. The weather was pretty warm and we stayed dry thanks to the forward thinking of the architects and engineers who designed Safeco Field. Unlike the other Mariners games we have been to, they actually won this one. By a lot.
