4th of July Fireworks - Forum Meetup

Taken by c33f from my condo at last year's meetup:

10511255_10153074883549465_3928470448131748988_n by Alex Lee, on Flickr


This year, and probably for the last time (before the Hedreen hotel goes up), I can share my view of the Lake Union fireworks on the 4th of July for another forum meetup. You are all welcome to my condo at Olive 8 on July 4th, 8pm for some prime comfortable viewing. No jockeying for position at Gasworks Park, no struggling to find street parking, no gross port-a-potties!

Your post in this thread to RSVP would be appreciated, so I have an idea how many to expect.




Come chill out over food and drinks with your SSC buds, whether you've hung out with us before or are meeting other forumites for the first time! (As last year, may bring your SOs, family, or close friend dates)

Olive 8 is located at 737 Olive Way Seattle WA 98101. Ring the door at the condo entrance on Olive Way (not the Hyatt hotel entrance on 8th Ave) and ask the concierge for Alex Lee's party. You'll be shown up to the 34th floor, where I'm in unit 3402.

This was a lot of fun last year, look forward again to meeting our fellow Seattle SSC'ers!

Unfortunately, I have another obligation...I'll have to just hope for Hedreen to get stalled for a year.

How many times do I have to tell you? Wipe up the lube before you attempt the dismount?

I will be there, barring a (1%) chance that I have to pick up my gf from the airport at an inconvenient time. (She's flying back on the 4th or 5th from work.)

I plan to join the fun. My brother and his family would like to come again too. Any suggestions on what I may bring to add to the offering s?

Thank you for hosting a fun get together again.

I will have escaped to Quinalt Lodge in Olympic National Park where my dog hopes the no fireworks rule is followed. I made the reservation on July 5 of last year after she was so freaked out. The event sounds great though! Thanks for offering up the view.

That is an amazing view! Seattle has their 4th of July fireworks show at Lake Union?

Although I won't be present, I believe that I'll at least be providing a Seattle banner for July 4.

Yes...........you shouldn't miss it if you have never seen it. It is quite spectacular. About 25 minutes in length but an all day happening. It is the unofficial start to summer.

I'm going to have to check it out. What time does the fireworks show start? I may be working that day. I'm guessing parking is pretty bad that day?

My experience last year is that parking wasn't hard at all. I believe I parked on 8th a bit north of Alex's building. Everyone is by Lake Union or the waterfront, not downtown.

Yeah, I'd agree with Geoff that the street parking situation around here seems generally pretty fine that night, with everyone jockeying to be closer to the lake. Also, it's worth noting my place is only two blocks from the Westlake light rail and Convention Center bus stations.
