Notes
  • Space Needle Restaurant, Seattle, WA. The Space Needle is distinctive in the Seattle skyline at 603 feet. It was constructed for the 1962 "Century 21" Seattle World's Fair and is still one of Seattle's main attractions today. The Restaurant is near the top of the Needle on the widest part, and revolves once per hour, so patrons watch the entire landscape from their table. The Drink Menu is also round, listing novelty drinks such as "Cloud Buster," "'Round the World" and "Panorama Punch." "The Space Needle" cocktail comes in a Space Needle-shaped container that may be purchased. The reverse of the Drink Menu shows a map of Washington State with the Space Needle at its center. It has compass points around it and small drawings depicting and describing something of interest at every point on the compass, such as "Whidbey Island: Second longest island in the United States" and "Queen Anne Hill: TV Towers and High School" to the North, or "Mt. St. Helens:9,671feet, 165 miles from here" to the South. A patron would align the compass with his/​her location and identify the points of interest from the table. PH Coll 617 Series IV.
