I shot this for a story on the great dive bars across the country for MSN.com’s Local channel. This is the noted Blue Moon Tavern here in Seattle — a place I had passed perhaps a thousand times but had never stepped foot inside (my dive bar of choice being the now shuttered Buckaroo Tavern in Fremont). I had always heard this was Tom Robbins’ favorite watering hole, among others, and was always a bit curious. I raced here as the sun was setting because I wanted to get their awesome neon sign with that sun-just-set twilight blue color. Just my luck that the gentlemen there on the right wanted to be a part of the photo!
