Mr Monkey visits the Seattle Underground, 2nd February

"He was a disreputable chap, that Doc Maynard"

Many LCC attendees were eager to tour the Seattle Underground, and Mr Monkey found himself in a queue outside Doc Maynard's bar. This is named after David S. Maynard, Seattle's "first bona-fide drunk"*, who, amongst other things insisted that the town be called Seattle. When he got in it was a bit dark, but everyone was very cheerful (possibly because they'd been given a token for a free drink each).

You can read about the tour at the Seattle Underground Tour website and about the bar at Doc Maynard's website.
