Coffee, tea, tunes

If you tend to hang around the homefront in the evenings, as we do, you may not be aware that West Seattle’s nightlife goes far beyond, oh, say, “which band’s playing Poggie’s tonight.” For example — after discovering that C and P Coffee, south of The Junction, has just applied for a beer/wine license, we went to the C and P website and realized that makes sense, since the coffeehouse offers live music several nights a week (here’s the calendar).

    I love C&P and look forward to having a beer (or two) there in the future!

    Poggie’s has the worst sounding bands in Seattle. Free or not, I have better things to do than to whoop it up with a bunch of country boys. Besides, I’m not a heavy beer drinker. I prefer to drink Martini’s. All beer does is get you fat and full fast.

    yeah gin martini’s for chet… ok I will drink vodka marts too, in a pinch.

    Try Quintenssential Gin Chet, its better than Bombay by far and the best around for its upgraded price. West 5 carry’s it which to me has the best liqour inventory in West Seattel. I mean, who sells Blue Label Johnnie Walker other than West 5 in W.S?

    Thanks, I will check it out. I have just been to west 5 once but I live 3 blocks a way (shame on me). I usually stick with tanq for gin and tonics and bombay for martini’s .. ever had aviator? I heard that was the newest topshelf but haven’t tried it yet. cheers mate

    Quntessential is also known a Q or Daresbury’s. It’s the premium gin served on the better cruiseship lines and my own preference. If you’re on a budget there’s always Famous Maker or if you’re in southern California, Ralph’s Generic.

    It’s also important to point out that I have never had anything less than a perfectly made martini at West 5 and I rank their martini right up there with the ones I’ve had at the Ship’s Tavern at the Brown Palace in Denver.

Sorry, comment time is over.
