===Meat-Up Dinner Wednesday===
[http://www.bokaseattle.com/ BOKA Kitchen + Bar], 1010 1st Ave (between Spring St & Madison St) - about 1/3 mile/5 min from hotel. We head over from the Amazon Technology Open House and get there by 8PM. Very much a eat-local place. Beecher cheddar - yum. Nice, mellow room. We should be back in plenty of time to hit the Drink-Up. * Cary Gordon Note that they have some excellent non-meat options for any meat groupies that want to hang with us.
(if you do not find a suitable burger joint, there are also some top-notch steakhouses in Seattle. Both the Metropolitan Grill and El Gaucho are delightful if folks are OK with $50 steaks. Just FYI, not trying to hijack your meat-up, Cary!. -mjgiarlo)
