Son Sam (Chips Jr.) has become a baseball fan in a big way this summer. He pleaded, begged and convinced me to take him see the Yankees play the Seattle Mariners two days ago. We managed to make a mini-Roadfood
adventure out of it.
We began the day with veggie panini breakfast sandwiches at Delphina’s Bakery in Portland. Tomato, cheese, avocado on fresh panini bread. It is one of our favorite hometown breakfasts.
Lunched at the PickQuick Drive-In at Fife, Washington(just north of Tacoma). The place has been reviewed on this site. An old-fashioned drive-in with fresh fruit shakes, made to order burgers, excellent hot dogs and fresh cut fries, it is a slice of Americana. There was a long line of locals at 11:15 a.m. Basic food , cooked well. An excellent stop.
Visited the sci-fi museum and the Experience Music Project. There was a small but interesting art show of about 16 paintings where the show curator compared and contrasted various paintings(all from the collection of EMP founder Paul Allen I believe) Sam enjoyed it despite himself.
The ballgame was a delight. We had our usual Ichiro combo of sushi and I had warm sake. A visitor from Buffalo, New York marvelled at the sushi stand and the fact Sam was eating sushi. I also had a cup of Ivar’s chowder and Sam had garlic fries.
The game had a wonderful outcome. AROD struck out 3 times though he did hit a two-run homer. Adrian Belte hit two home runs for the Mariners, including a walk-off job that concluded a 6-5 Mariner win that ended an 11 game losing streak. And when the Yankees lose, I am always happy.
Chips and Son do Seattle(again)
