Did a lot of food shopping. Ended up not buying the two things I specifically went shopping *for*. Went back out and got one of them. Mer.
Also, seeing as it was the first Saturday, headed out to CC's for the Bear Beer Bust. It was much less crowded than I expected; I'd have though that Cinco de Mayo would make it more popular than usual. Wonder where everyone was. Around 10pm, bconn left to head down to SAM (the Seattle Art Museum), and I joined him. We walked down to it, but when he saw the (still very long) line to get in, he decided not to wait it out. We took a cab back to CC's.
I got home around 3am, so I had a snack, rested a bit, got changed, and walked down to SAM. There was still a line, but it was very short; at 4am, the museum was at least as crowded as it would be on a typical day. I believe that this is direct evidence of the massive, unfulfilled market for nightlife in Seattle. One of my few complaints about this place is that the sidewalks roll up far too early in the evening. If only I could afford to start up something on my own...
