            Arriving in Seattle Greg and I caught a ride with one of his friends that lives up this way. We ended up hanging out with him at his place in Bellevue. Some of our other RCB friends arrived in the afternoon after their long drive up. A few of us piled into a car and headed into the city. We ended up down by Qwest Field and Safeco Stadium at a restaurant/bar that had an amazing Hotdog wrapped in bacon, deep-fried and covered in cheese. WOW that was good!! I was dropped off at my hotel and got all checked in. Here it is only 17:00 and it feels so late and looks even later than it feels. I am staying in the Renaissance Seattle Hotel. It is a very nice upscale hotel in a large 28 story building. My room is on the 12th floor but I overlook I-5 looking North East; I can see a little bit of the harbor. Heading out to get some snacks and drinks from the local grocery store the Seattle rain has finally arrived. I decided to get all my rain gear on and head down to F.X. McRory’s the restaurant/bar that RSL has taken over for the weekend. The walk down is in a downpour and I was definitely not singing in the rain! F.X. is packed with RSL fans but I am able to find some of my RCB mates. We eventually head out to Owl ‘N Thistle pub where we have some good Magners Cider. As a group we are singing and chanting for our team runing into Seattle and LA fans along the way; we are now SINGING IN THE RAIN!

Then it is off to Fado Irish Pub where we find Strongbow on tap.

            After hanging out at Fado’s I walk back to the hotel in the rain and call it a night. Tomorrow is the big day!!

Little on the pricey side, but deals can be found online for this hotel. The location is hard to beat, right in the heart of downtown Seattle. Within … read entire review
