Boeing bomber and clarkh are right on track. As for Dicks- kinda like the cars we love, either you get it or if somebody needs to explain it, it ain't the same. I like the Alki area over in West Seattle too but it's been a few years since I lived there and couldn't recommend much by name - except The Spud. Awesome fish and chips and Green River Soda on fountain. Otherwise IPAs really are the local thirst quencher. Pretty excited that he even remembered to send you to the market for a pork hom bow.
