"Cicely, Alaska"

Logo of the television series

My wife's most favorite TV show ever is Northern Exposure.
I never saw it until I married her. In fact, I hardly watched television at all
until Alissa & I were wed. She has DVD's of every season of the show.
When we visited Washington in 2007, we made a side-trip to Roslyn, Washington,
otherwise known as "Cicely, Alaska." This is where Northern Exposure was filmed.

Here's the Brick.
This confused me...

I am a bit confused because while Roslyn has a biggish cafe/bar, the Brick is up the street
and a completely different establishment. Anyway, nevermind. The side trip was completely worth
watching Alissa's face as she sat at Holling's bar with Roslyn locals, a fantastic gleam in her eye.
Guys, if ever you can make your wife this happy just by driving to a little town in Washington State,
take my word: JUST DO IT!! I think it made Alissa's LIFE. She was enraptured all the drive home.

We sat in the family dining area, not the bar

I think this was where they held all the town hall meetings.
At the Town Hall?
I'll confirm later.

Looks like the TV show, doesn't it?

If you've ever seen the TV show Northern Exposure, you would appreciate
being able to walk through the set. If you haven't... well, I was once like you.
