Answer to last week's puzzle, after the jump.

Last week's picture shows part of the sign out front of one of Seattle's long-time counter-culture taverns—the Eastlake Zoo at the corner of Eastlake and Lynn.

Seattle's Eastlake Zoo Tavern

The Stranger lauds the Zoo:
This magnificent Eastlake dive welcomes everyone: massive bikers, leftover hippies, and fresh-faced college kids. The impossibly vast space houses a assortment of game-gear: pool tables, dart boards, pinball machines, shuffleboard, and snooker. If you can't have fun here, you're dead.
The place has a lot of history. It's one of the oldest taverns in Seattle, and each knife-gouged table is a kind of Rosetta Stone to Seattle's past. Back in the day people used to smoke cigarettes and all kinds of things in the discrete loft area at the back. Nowadays of course it's smoke-free, dominated by gaming apparatus and offering free WiFi. But the taps still offer the best quaffs, the clientele remains eclectic, and it's still cash-only.
