F.X. McRory's: Happy Hour Near Seattle's King St. Amtrak Station

To take advantage of a bargain fare, we again had a three-hour layover at Seattle yesterday as we rode Amtrak from Vancouver WA back to Bellingham. The King Street Station is undergoing a major multi-year renovation and we had no desire to sit in a portable waiting area next to a construction zone for three hours.

It was a drizzly night and fortunately only a short one-block walk to F.X. McRory's. Even more fortunately, we arrived shortly after the beginning of their Happy Hour. What's not to like about that? To our own surprise, our favorites were the vegetarian spring rolls (the waitress thought they were made in-house) but we also enjoyed the Edamame, Peel-and-Eat Shrimp, and Kobe Burgers.

The sign describes it as the World's Largest Bourbon Bar.

The Vegetarian Spring Rolls tasted as good as they looked...

Then it was back to catch our final train and home to Bellingham after a most enjoyable two-day rail trip.
