To the untrained eye, or the un-imaginative individual, Comic Con can appear to be a “massive nerd gathering” in which people “dress up in costumes” and parade around all day taking pictures.

What’s that Pointy Thing?

Most locals to the Seattle area know and understand the “outsider” fascination with 13410438_1156192181098708_876127381_oone of the more iconic tourist attractions in the city, the Seattle Space Needle. To Seattle area natives, it’s just the Space Needle; to others, it’s the symbol of Seattle.

Similar to the fish being thrown at the market, similar
to visiting the first ever Starbucks, and similar to a great many other tourist attractions, the Seattle Space Needle has been an iconic staple since its creation in 1962. Continue reading
