New Year's Eve wasn't very exciting because I was on day two of unpleasant intestinal illness. We managed to sell the tickets to the party we were going to go to but couldn't get out of the hotel reservation so we went to the hotel anyway. It was a great little boutique art hotel in Downtown Seattle called Hotel Max. Original artwork from local artists in all the rooms, modern and funky. A walk to the corner and we could look down the street to see the Space Needle fireworks. One of the touches I liked the most were these two: The Pillow Menu and The Spiritual Menu.
