Tonight is the semi-final playoff game for the Screamin’ Eagles. In the several seasons I have been on the team, we have never made it past the semi-finals, though we get to that game regularly.

Used to going out to “areas” of town to find bars like Capitol Hill, Fremont or Belltown, Nick and I tried to do the same thing in Bellevue. After driving around looking for awhile (and making a side trip through the millionaire mansions on Medina), we ended up at Lincoln Square.
