    I just realized that Ranch Bravo is the taco wagon around the corner from where I live in the Udist/Wallingford.Very good food.

    There is also a pretty chill dive bar up the street from it where there serve beer in mason jars. It's next to the Afghan restaraunt (the one with the mural on the side of it).

    I know this is an old thread however, I'm always looking for more River Bum's too fish with. I'm willing to fish all the time.

    Here's an idea, why don't we try to get a meet/drink going at above mentioned beer-in-mason jar serving dive bar? Sounds like a couple of you live near there, and I'm not overly too far. pick a day and I'll likely be able to work it in to my schedule.

    I'm going to try to make it as well and will be wearing something that pegs me as a fly fisher. Not sure what; need to do some laundry.

    Haven't live in the area too long, but didn't realize that Capitol Hill and Wallingford/Meridian were the same thing. Learn something new every day

    Capitol Hill and Wallingford are several miles apart.It's like the burrows in NYcity,Bronx,Brooklyn,Queens,Staten Island and Manhattan.Seattle has Capitol Hill,Queen Ann,Wallingford/U District and west Seattle.Capital Hill and Wallingford are very different places.Wallingford is not known for all the gayness like The Hill.Not that there's anything wrong with that

    I know, I just got a sense that PT was implying that we were all gonna be gay together in Capitol Hill. When first of all Al's is on 45th in Wallingford, not Capitol Hill, and second of all I'm pretty sure we are going to keep our pants zipped up except when taking a piss after drinking a few 2.00 Oly's

    (Appreciate the willingness to straighten me out on the layout of the area, thanks!)
