Biscuit and Gravy pick their future neighborhood..... Ballard!

Chad came out to Seattle last weekend for a couple days of shopping, eating and neighborhood hunting. Although we still aren't living in the same city, or even on the same side of the country, we are making plans for the day when we stop single-handedly holding up the airline industry.

Chad and I spent a day exploring the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle last October. By some miracle, it was sunny that day, and we spent the afternoon browsing the Ballard Farmer's Market and eating hummus (Biscuit) and drinking Guiness (Gravy) in some of the restaurants and bars in the neighborhood.

Once Chad realized that Ballard had a movie theater and grocery store within walking distance, he was sold on the neighborhood. I wanted to make sure he didn't commit too quickly though, and this last weekend we spent several hours driving around Seattle, neighborhood shopping. We checked out Eastlake, Lake Union, Fremont, Wallingford, and Capitol Hill. I think Capital Hill was a real contender, until we spent 20 minutes looking for a parking spot on a Sunday night. Yikes.

Turns out, Chad's first instinct was right. After extensive research and consultation, Biscuit and Gravy decided that Ballard is the place we'll move when we finally get to live in the same city!
