South Seattle Night Ride


Face facts, north Seattle doesn't offer the same challenges and rewards as the south side. The north side has the Burke Gilman Trail, which is a gem. But, at night, it's boring and ball-jarring as daytime television.

The north end is basically a bedroom community. The U-District, sure, that's a stomping ground. And let us not forget Memo's on the Ave, one of Seattle's remaining 24-hour, sit-down restaurants.

But, really, it's a bunch of hills and houses.

The above-posted route takes a superficial, yet nostalgic tour of Pioneer Square, Beacon Hill, and Skyway. Along this route Mr. Q and I saw a family of three coyotes, well-fed, and three drunken gangsters.

Jam box playlist included:

1) Eric B. and Rakim
2) Michael Jackson
3) Snoop Dogg
4) Bobby Brown
5) Chamillionaire (Ridin' Dirty)
6) Lil' Troy (Wanna Be a Baller)

Alcopops ingested: regular Sparks, green Tilt

Blunt papers: grape Swisher Sweet

Mileage: about 36

Duration: 11 p.m. ish to 4 a.m. ish
