I think Dakurai suggested a place called Trophy Cupcakes. Have to double check though.

Man, so many places to eat. Are we going to be able to hit them all? :|

I don't know how many we can realistically hit while at PAX. Chances are we may be able to grab breakfast and dinner, but lunches will probably be at the convention center.

We could go to the closer ones for lunch and hit up the farther ones for dinner if it comes to that. Are any of them particularly close?

Well me reaching this is very much a last-minute decision. Still don't know.

Also if I can't make it could someone do me a favour and pick up a couple of the free skin codes from wherever League of Legends is at this for me? I'd rather save a friend of mine the $20 lol.

Did you get passes? How are you planning to go if you don't have passes?

I definitely like the sound of Chili Shacks, but I would like to try to hit up some legitimate sea food shops/restaurants since we're going to be so close to the ocean.

So, an update since we've just returned from PAX. Caleb and I did manage to hit up Bizzaro Italian Cafe, and then also Pam's Kitchen with DL and Nean. Lastly, we bought a dozen cupcakes from Trophy Cupcakes near University area. While we didn't hit up Georgia's Greek, we did find another equally amazing greek restaurant near the Space Needle worth mention.

1. Wow. Just wow. The food, decor, and all around atmosphere of the TripleD suggested restaurants was amazing. If you ever are in the area, these are definitely worth visiting.

2. Those cupcakes are HEAVY. Tons of icing and the cupcake is made rather dense as compared to most lighter and fluffier cupcakes. Do not buy a dozen like we did. Too hard to consume them all in a reasonable amount of time between 4 people. :P

3. We also ate at a lot of various fast food places and such, like a waffle place near the hotel and a couple of places around Pike Place Market. Overall, the food is excellent around downtown Seattle, and Pike Place Market is a wonderful place to shop/eat/explore.

:D

Don't forget the Soup Stand? Been in business for 10 years, and I can see why, the Clam Chowder and hearty beef stew are impeccable. Me and DL hit that place up multiple times during our stay. Now if only I could remember which darn building it was in.

I'll cover this in the official pictures thread, but man Dakurai, those cupcakes are super heavy. I presume you had only one? A dozen is a bit much for four people. Even if I did think they'd be like Sobey's cupcakes. (Insubstantial)

@Nean: The soup stand was in the building between the Sheraton and the Red Lion.
