I’m more of a coffee cup half full type of girl so when my little guy ended up home because of a fever the night before (and a 24 hour rule at school where you can’t come back until fever has been over for 24 hours) on a day when Amazon opens its first book store, it wasn’t the most horrible thing in the world.
We lounged around in the morning playing Uno (our current favorite game) and reading and when we felt well enough to get out, we headed to Uvillage to buy some books and see what the first Amazon brick and mortar store looks like. And because it was already lined up and it was chilly, and we had all the time in the world, we decided to lunch first.
I hadn’t had lunch alone with my little guy in ages and I forget that with twins sometimes we don’t get as much one and one time with each of our kids. But my guys are also best friends, and my guy didn’t want to hurt his brother who wasn’t with us so we decided to lunch at Blue C because he would be heart-broken if we went to Din Tai Fung and ate dumplings without him.
It turns out, Blue C might end up becoming the favorite Uvillage restaurant in the house again.
Have you seen the new robot delivery they have going on?
This was our first time seeing the new Blue C at Uvillage and I love how they’ve enlarged the conveyor sushi belt so more people can sit next to it and they’ve created a track for a car to deliver kitchen items like Robata-grilled corn and yakiudon bowls to tables in a unique way. It just zips down the track and stops at your table and you can help yourself. You can even order via a little tablet on the table.
The new Blue C setup reminded us a lot of a sushi place we love in Shinjuku that mechanically delivers orders too.
So I don’t know which made us happier, Blue C Sushi or the new Amazon Bookstore. But we spent a lot of time in that bookstore and I love how they’ve organized the books and how they have the same low prices that they have online.
And despite having to rearrange my day to hang out with my little guy and take care of his cold, I was so happy hanging out with him in my favorite place to shop in Seattle. I love Uvillage and all of the new updates just makes it even more awesome. (And my little guy in tow was pretty impressed too!)
(PS. we all go to the doctor at Uvillage too! It makes purchases even more justifiable when I count them as therapy….)
