  2. Thank you, Go: South Seattle!
    I vow to visit every one of these places. Mark my words – I WILL make it my mission.
    I consider it a civic duty to my fellow south Seattleites to consume macaroons.
    I will laugh in the face of carbs and revel in snickerdoodles. (But really, thank you for making this very handy list for us.) 🙂
