$13 Won't Get You Up the Needle

How much do you think it costs to get to the top?

I thought it'd be funning to add a trip to the Space Needle to our $13 feature, where we see how far we can stretch 13 bills. I knew I wouldn't get far, but I thought at the very least I could get to the top and buy a gum ball. Not so. It costs $16 bucks for an adult to get to the top of the Needle! I've been in these parts for 25 years, have never been to the top, and this new price tag seals the deal: I never will.

If you're thinking about throwing down two hours of minimum wage on a trip to the top, think about whether that would be more fun than:

2 center field tickets to see the Mariners (with $ left for the bus).

4 beer and 4 oysters at Shuckers in the Fairmont Olympic. (Happy hour, 3-5 m-f.) 

1 ticket to see Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello perform at The Nightwatchman at the Croc.
