It was my first New Years Eve in Seattle and we made it count. We rode the light rail from our place into downtown where we walked up to Capitol Hill. Our first stop was the Bus Stop bar for a drink where we met friends before heading over to a low-key but super fun party at another friends' place. Aside from good people and drinks, the building has balconies with a view overlooking, among other things, the fireworks shot from the Space Needle. The show was fun to see but the night made great with friends and a driveless route to and from. Happy New Year!
