It'd be a whole lot better if it was in Seattle or Bellevue, but it's in fricking EVERETT. Location, location, location.

Actually I think a location like Everett would be good.It's not too big, not too small. Has a small town feel..and what's this? a restaurant devoted to gamers? COOL!It's not as hipster/elite as Seattle but it's just as good.

As a hipster/elite Seattlite, I meant I wish it was located closer.

As an Everett-tonian (or whatever) with lots of friends in Seattle, I personally find the Seattle-Everett distance to be a bit over-hyped. The AFK's more in southern Everett, as well. A 20 minute drive in decent traffic from north Seattle.And yes, the AFK totally rocks. :)

Wait, wait, wait! Everett? I clearly NEED to go there. It's so much closer than Seattle OR Bellevue, to us northern folk. ;)

Yep, I'm in Seattle and Everett is the DARK side of the Moon...WAY too far to go for drinks (with no way to get home if you've had alcohol...) and games. Good luck to ya though!!

Yeah, I live a bit south of Seattle, and AFK Tavern is waaay too far for most people to go, especially since many city-dwellers don't have cars. 3 hour bus ride? No, thank you! Please move south! Hopefully to Ballard so I can have my nerdery all in one place (Cafe Mox/Card Kingdom ftw):)

It's in Everett because King County has overly interesting laws. We were in the other day and talking to Kayla when it was slow.King County says that if you serve alchohol and there are dice on the table then you are a gambling joint and you'll get taxed as such. So, it's in Everett. But it's right off I-5 and it's not too far away. It's quicker to get there than to try to cross the canal bridge to get to Cap Hill.
