July 11 Pink Door – dinner and a trapeze

“She didn’t care that people called her a bitch. ‘It’s just another word for feminist,’ she told me with pride.” Gayle Forman

Today I went to a park that I thought was going to be awesome but when I got there it was decidedly rapey so I left and went to Olympic Sculpture Park instead. At the sculpture park, there were lots of friendly runners and men walking teeny, tiny dogs. Oh, and sculptures, of course. It is right on the water and I couldn’t resist the many photo ops.

For dinner I went to a Cabaret Lounge called Pink Door. This place was super sexy and fun! There is no address on the door, it’s in an alley and there is all kinds of bohemian mystique about it. It’s all decked-out in chandeliers and mirrors, bathed in golden light, and there are swings hanging from the ceiling where barely-clad women perform burlesque-type cabaret/aerial yoga/sex kitten moves to vintage, old school, breathy, lady-sings-the-blues-type tunes. Just my kind of place. I loved everything about it! We watched a show that was amazing and were told not to film it in any way, then we noticed that people were recording and photographing. I wish I had some bit of footage to show off this amazing Cirque du Soleil meets Moulin Rouge meets Marilyn Monroe routine the trapeze artist woman performed on a swing in the middle of the restaurant. If you get yourself up to Seattle, find the Pink Door. The food is outstanding, the ambience is guilty pleasure and the show is stunning.

Can you spot the swing hanging over the heads of the diners?
