belltown on a wednesday

Georgia and were overdue for some catching up and I was craving sushi, so we decided to meet at Umi in belltown. Forgetting how packed their Happy Hour bar is in the 6pm hour, we debated staying and waiting for 20+ min or finding another place (I love umi but their regular menu was a little pricier than we were wanting to pay).

A quick call to B and it was boyfriend and GoTime.com to the rescue. Ohana just a block away had hh until 7 and plenty of free tables in a fun tiki setting. Their food menu was $3 and they had a small $3 drink menu (we had full sail and sake). Their beer prices are real reasonable on.their regular menu too! Hadn't had hand rolls before but really enjoyed the belltown one (mmm avacado and salmon) especially. I will definitely go back there!

I was craving the atmosphere and white cheddar popcorn of The Big Picture (downstairs below el gaucho). The movie they were showing was a Russell Crowe flick and I tend not to see his stuff unless it's absolutely a great movie. We decided to grab a few beers and popcorn and find a cosy couch in their beautiful venue. I love that place.

Out the door on a rainy night with Georgia's car 10 blocks away we tried hailing a cab. One of the sweet door guys to El Gaucho's ran down the entire block to flag one down for us. Such service for two girls who just had a drink and some popcorn.
