When I said that political fund raisers are held in high-end places that everyone wants to see, here is what I’m talking about.
We were actually in the club room of this building, on the 39th floor, rather than in the host’s living space, and it was too hot to be outside on the roof deck which surrounds the club room. Many of these new high rise buildings in Seattle, be they apartment or condo, have smaller living spaces and more expansive shared space, like the roof deck. My old apartment building was similarly designed. I found that even with the gorgeous roof deck, most people who come home from work at night are tired, and choose to relax in their own space. The roof decks, even the ones offering spectacular views like this one, are often sparsely used.
