We now interrupt this program for a message from Matthew Darling, the Bar Manager at the Skylark Cafe & Club:
We had a small fire at the Skylark this morning... Yikes!
No one was hurt...thank god!! But... our flattop is fucked...
Lotsa money to fix, and our entire brunch menu is cooked on that thing....
So tonight's karaoke will benefit the repair. Please come by, say hi, buy a drink, sing a song.
Tell everyone you know to come ....we're gonna party this mother fucker out!
We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

Fighting robots = metal carnage = good.
Just wanting to collect people's impressions of the schools (in whatever style) they've attended in this area, as a sort of repository for future reference! Particularly useful would be instructor recommendations.
I myself am looking into some new options - I've previously taken Muay Thai and Wing Chun (though not in this state). I'm more interested in the mental and meditative aspects and the discipline as a whole, rather than just learning self-defense. I have to say that Taijiquan looks most appealing to me.
This is a paying gig.
If you are interested in knowing more, please leave a comment. Thanks!
I'll be visiting your city in November and was hoping to get a better idea on some things that I wasn't able to attain online.
I'll be staying at the Spaceneedle Travelodge and was wondering if there were any oyster bars or restaurants that serve raw oysters. I thought the Pike Place Market was a good place to look but their website wasn't very informative. Also, is the Space Needle worth the 14.00? Is it just a trip up and then down again?
Any other suggestions of nifty touristy things to do while I'm down is much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
