The Frontier Room

last night, after wandering downtown looking for a charger for my phone, i ended up heading into Belltown for some nibbles. i am familiar with the area but didn’t want a sit down shi shi meal, so i went to the Frontier Room. it was pretty quiet when i arrived, so i ventured to the bar and picked out some food and drink. the bartenders were cordial, but a bit stand-offish and not talkative. it took me ordering my Florida Cowboy to get the party started. i asked the bartender for a strange drink – something rarely ordered – and i got a Rusty Nail. that’s with Drambuie (sp) and scotch. it was ok, but i don’t think i’ll order it again. next up was a singapore sling with mezcal on the side. suffice it to say, i finished the mezcal, but not the sling. i really enjoyed the frontier room and the atmosphere. it is probably a place i wouldn’t venture on friday or saturday due to the crowds and such, but on a wednesday evening, it was just right.
also, along the way, i came accross a cool abandoned chair. i soo wanted to tell everyone about it, but my camphone was dead. i went back in the morning and it was gone. hopefully it went to a good home and not to the dump. there’s gotta be a way to tell others about abandoned free stuff on the streets.

    I need help. I read that as a “sit down thank you meal”.

    yeh, i guess you’re right. my thinking was this – i’ on a business trip, so the norm would be to go grab a steak at a nice restaurant with white tablecloths and waiters who are at your beck and call. i am also staying in the shopping/hotel district which in my opinion only offers corporate high end food. since i don’t know the scene that well, i wanted something different and i wanted something where i could chill at the bar – ergo The Frontier Room.
    that was the way my mind was thinking.
