Stimson Green Mansion

Sunday the Seattle Urban Sketchers went to the Stimson Green Mansion for our monthly sketchcrawl.  It was a great space to sketch especially on a cold day.  For some history on the Mansion see the following Link.

May's Restaurant and Lounge

May's Restaurant.  Thai Cuisine.
I just decided to dedicate one of my sketchbooks to different restaurants and cafe's we go to. Last night we tried a Thai restaurant in Wallingford.  I have always wanted to try this place because the architecture from the outside looked so interesting.  It is on 45th near Wallingford Center.  The exterior railings are lazer cut panels of corten rusted steel  with a stainless steel top railing. The restaurant is on the second floor and the  Lounge on the first floor. The exterior of the building gives you just a hint of what you experience when you walk into the restaurant ...you are taken to a different country.  Wonderful atmosphere and authentic food.  It was rated as having the best Phad Tai in Seattle.  Prices are fairly reasonable!

Dinner @ Monsoon

Saturday we had an early Valentine's Dinner thanks to a gift certificate from a friend.  It was a great dinner, wonderful Vietnamese Cuisine, every dish was a treat!  To give me more time for a sketch we ordered Coconut Creme Brulee and coffee for dessert.  Here is a sketch from that evening.

Last Weekend in January

Glassy Baby Seconds Sale Line
Last weekend was a busy time.  Went to the Glassy Baby Second Sale and waited for two hours to get into a very crowded store.  Was in and out in 5 minutes.  Sunday we attended the Garfield High School Winter Waltz an annual event put on by the Garfield High School Orchestra at Benaroya Hall.  Sketches are from both events.
