Well, the trip was fine, but the toll roads are killer - no warning for the airport turnoff, and it's a long way to the next exit, then another toll to turn around. The street is like a carnival around the clock, and the food is great! Just beware the Crazy Grill - Brazilian steakhouse. It's a ripoff; nothing but burned dry meat and a few scraps they call a salad bar for $35. I recommend the Ethiopian restaurant. Yummy stuff, and quite reasonable.
The shops are all full of cheap tourist crap, but it's fun to browse. Just don't waste your money on anything unless you can't buy it elsewhere, as it's all a bunch of offshore garbage made on the cheap for sale to the stupid and gullible.
Have fun; I certainly enjoyed it!

I'll be going to the 2008 Microsoft MVP Summit. It would be great to put faces to the names I've seen here over the last few years. Would anyone be interested in meeting up for a meal on the Sunday evening before the summit starts?
Are you still interested in a CP MVP dinner/get-together on Sunday night before the summit?
Absolutely - I even bought a new Code Project T-shirt for the occasion!
I'm staying in the Sheraton if that helps. I don't know Seattle at all. It's the first time I've been. My plan for the Sunday is to go to the early registration, then meet up with folks, go for a meal, and so on.
I'm waaaaaay late obviously, but I usually get to Seattle a couple days early to visit with my uncle before the summit, so I can meet up with the CP folks on Sunday. I'll be staying at the Hyatt (down the street from the conv. center). There's a really nice restaurant right by the center too, Nish and Smitha and I went there last year. I forget what kind of food it was though Thai maybe?
