6.57am, Sunday 30th September, Sea Tac Airport, Washington state, USA
Morning folks, the suns up and it’s yet another beautiful autumn / fall day in Seattle. The rental vehicle is brim full of petrol / gas and is safely back with it’s owner, and I’ve survived yet another “up very very close but not very friendly” encounter with airport security, courtesy of that brand new steel knee of mine. Trust me, if only you could fly without having to go to an airport – it would be such an easier experience!
Anyway, on to more memorable things! I ducked back into Tacoma yesterday for lunch at one of the historical buildings in the Stadium District. There’s a jolly good reason for the long line of people and cars at this faithfully kept in it’s original running order drive through burger joint. Welcome to Frisko Freeze. I went with the Cheeseburger and onion rings, and with the chopped lettuce, mayo and a completely different sweet mustard pickle – this is definitely one of my top ten burgers in the USA! Big call I know, but right on the money! And the onion rings……it must be the sweet local Walla Walla onions that every one uses up here in the Pacific Northwest, but they’re magic. I could only get through two or three on top of the cheeseburger, and it was a shame to let them go! Crunchy breaded coating more than battered, and very very tasty.might have to see if Damon down at our local Angaston Fordies pizza bar can have a go at doing this style of onion rings.
Any rate, we’re off to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada this morning – some very very important events on our agenda – including a session with nearly my favorite wine scribe Tony Gismondi. See ya when we’re in Tim Horton’s maple dipped donut territory – yum!
And just to tease you – here’s my Frisko Freeze lunchtime moment from yesterday….
