Crossing You in Style

You know what I love? Old movies on the big screen. Seattle's Cinerama is among the cooler theaters in town, and lately they've been showing some Valentines-y classics, including Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Great movie--I'd forgotten just how great it really is. And seeing it on that huge beautiful screen!

Won't look nearly as good, but here's a nice little scene:

And afterwards Emily treated me to this adorable snack, from Top Pot Doughnuts:
I <3 Doughnut
Filling for the stomach and the heart!

Cheers, Reader.

We took a right after the bridge and headed up toward Alki (northern tip of West Seattle).

Plenty of fun, though. Cool to ride underneath the viaduct:

And here are Obama's remarks:

New York Times live blog also very good.
