J: For M we went to McCormick and Schmicks. It was fantastic. We went twice, the first time was with GJ and we order too much food. But it was super cheap and it all sounded really good. We got Clam strips for $1.95, a quesadilla for $1.95, mac and cheese (with maybe chicken) for $3.95, a burger and fries for $1.95, and a salmon cake for $1.95. The burger and salmon cake were big too, it was a lot of food for three people. I had a cosmimosa ($8.50) to drink, M had a pumpkin drink ($8.00), and GJ got an orange sidecar ($8.00) and an old fashioned ($8.50), which was apparently made correctly and he was very impressed. Granted there aren’t drink specials, but the food is big portioned and it’s good, so really you don’t loose. And the drinks are good, everyone wins. There is also dessert happy hour. We had three options, but we went for the bread pudding for $1.95 and the chocolate moose $1.95, which we ate all of, even though we were all full to bursting, but we love dessert and couldn’t pass up happy hour dessert. It was good too. The second time we went it was for my birthday! Yay! It was a good move on our part. We found seats at the bar (just M and me) and made friends with the bartender (good call). He was cute and very friendly and wished me happy birthday after carding me. I got my drink for free and the crazy dessert sample thingy we got for dessert. Good place to go for your birthday. And the bar is crazy, the bartenders can’t leave from behind the bar. They are trapped. Especially if people are sitting around the whole bar and you can’t lift the part of the counter up that lets them out. Poor guys, it was funny. We also helped the bartender by distributing menus to the people standing behind us who were looking for seats. I know we had crab cakes, not happy hour, but it was my birthday, and M got the salmon burger and we got clam strips. It was a really good birthday.
