Last week the monotony of my workweek was interrupted by a relaxing business trip to Seattle. Lest you become envious of the favors afforded me, I'll explain that this is an annual trip for all sales and marketing associates from Oregon, Alaska, Washington, and Arizona. We bus up in the morning and spend the afternoon watching a performance of skits with awards to celebrate the work of the past year. Then we all get free drinks, dinner, and a hotel room to rest our drunken, er, weary heads. We ride the bus straight back to work the next morning at 8 and spend the rest of the day in the office.
I lucked out and got a room on the 17th floor with a really pretty view of the sound (much nicer than the picture expresses).
During our free evening we went to Sephora, ate at Elephant and Castle, and enjoyed some free hours in the city. We also discovered a very tasty drink: the Washington Apple.
Combine equal parts Crown Royal (or other Canadian Whiskey), Apple Pucker, and cranberry juice for a refreshing apple flavored beverage. You'll swear it's nutritious!
