"Vibrant and typically Seattle, a great place for an afternoon."
45th Street in Wallingford is the quintessential Seattle neighborhood thoroughfare. Along its path one can find everything from coffee, eclectic shops, locally-owned restaurants, and small town flavored businesses. The food scene along 45th ranges from Dick's Drive In, a Seattle legend for hamburgers, to May, one of the best Thai restaurants in a city chock-full of Thai places. There is an outstanding beer store, which views beer about as seriously as a wine snob would view wine. There is a great dingy little comic book store rightly called Comics Dungeon, as well as a wonderful stained glass supply store. Tucked just a few houses of the street is a hidden Seattle recording studio, Electrokitty, which has served bands such as U2, Nas, and Carrie Underwood. As is typical of recording studios in Seattle, it is located unassumingly in the lower level of a house in the middle of a residential neighborhood.
