Coffee is the only vice I have left. No lattes… I mean real coffee, hot, black and strong. I’ve been to the Seattle/Federal Way several time previously and am aware this area knows it coffee better than any other place I have ever been to, bar none. I will be attending the SC Nationals and want to know where some of the preferred local coffee shops are. I don’t mean Star Bucks, I can get that in Michigan. Thanks.

I sympathize, Ian. Grace & I normally travel with our own portable espresso machine. Unfortunately, we're not driving to Seattle and will probably have to settle for American-style coffee. We are bringing our own mix and coffee filters for the hotel coffee maker but it's a poor second.

The area is crawling with coffee shops. Obviously Starbucks is ubiquitous. The next biggest player is probably Tully's. After that there are lots of local shops and also drive-through stands all over the place. Most grocery stores will also have a small coffee shop inside. I'm pretty confident you'll be able to find a good cup of joe somewhere!

Kirk I heard you can find a unique Seattle steamy cup of joe at Cowgirls Espresso. Have you tried them?

No, Rob, I haven't, but I looked at their website and I agree about the steamy part!

There are bound to be a lot of jittery swimmers at Federal Way. I imagine lots of false starts.

I don't drink coffee, so I'll be one of the few able to stay in position without getting "the twitches."

Shouldn't this really be a part of the Amanda Beard thread? I imagine that these poor, working girls were once a part of a very successful local age-group program at Federal Way. As their fame grew, and they matured, their horizons apparently broadened.

I take it they specialize in cheesecake as well as coffee?

I'll volunteer to check out one of these locations and report back on whether they comply with the Truth In Advertising Act. Really, it's the least I can do.

Really boys....won't there be enough scantily clad women at the aquatic center?

Are there really ever enough scantily clad women? Too bad the ratio of women to men isn't more like 3:1
