Everett, WA: Funko HQ (@OriginalFunko)

Karen and I collect Funko toys and the new headquarters is located about 40 minutes north of Seattle in the city of Everett, Washington… just a stones throw away from Boeing. After we left the Starbucks Reserve Roastery, we made our way north, stopping halfway in the city of Edmonds for breakfast at […]

Seattle: Starbucks Reserve Roastery #StarbucksReserve

Karen and I left Pike Place and went from the “first” Starbucks store to the first Starbucks Reserve Roastery.  Located at 1124 Pike Street, the first Starbucks Reserve Roastery is located in Seattle’s vibrant Capitol Hill neighborhood. The new facility takes up 15,000 square feet and offers taste tests of […]

Seattle: Pike Place Market

Good morning, Seattle! It was Karen’s first time in Seattle, so we had to visit the famous Pike Place Market.  In my prior visits, I knew it would be very busy, so we decided to get there by 8:00, before the tourist and tour busses arrived.  We were told […]

Buffalo: KeyBank Center vs Sabres

The Ducks lost the last 2 games played in Toronto and Montreal.  We were hoping that this last game of the road trip would turn out better.  The KeyBank Center is located down the street from our hotel, and was within the “free zone” of the local metro […]

Toronto: Hockey Hall of Fame #HHOF

The reason the Ducks chose Toronto for this year’s Road Crew city was 2 former players: Teemu Selanne and Paul Kariya were inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.  It made perfect sense to visit this city, and to check out the Hall of Fame’s newest inductees. After the morning skate, […]
