Nearly Sleepless in Seattle

Our trip to Seattle for the screening of Mad City Chickens was a such a fun filled experience that we can't wait for our next visit. It was a lively whirlwind of activity where we crammed a week's worth of experiences into two short days (not counting travel days).

We had a 3 hour layover in Minneapolis. Then our connecting plane was a few hours late. By the time we arrived in Seattle on Thursday night it was 2:00 am our time.

The founders of the Wallingford neighborhood-based Friday Night at the Meaningful Movies were our hosts, tour guides, and all around suppliers of some of the best hospitality we've experienced in our travels. Rick, Diane & Erica really made us feel at home.

The Friday night screening of MCC was enthusiastically received by almost 160 people despite the unseasonably beautiful weather outside.

On the radio at 7:30 the next morning. That's us and Angelina Shell of Seattle Tilth. What fun!

A visit to the downtown market to see the fish "tossed".

Free tasting at the Theo's Chocolate Factory!!!!

On Sunday we were up at 5:00 am and spent the whole day at airports again and on various flights to get back to Madison. The plane from Seattle to Detroit was staffed by an all male flight attendant crew and a female captain. Refreshing!

Due to a scheduling conflict, we weren't able to stay longer, but Mad City Chickens is still in Seattle. There is another screening tonight sponsored by Sustainable West Seattle, 7:00pm Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW.
