Nick Harmer ('98), bassist for Death Cab for Cutie, describes his favorite places in Bellingham, the city where the world-famous band got its start:
The Horseshoe Cafe, 113 E. Holly St.: Evenings would often start with cocktails at the 24-hour bar and restaurant.
The Beaver Inn, 1315 N. State St., was a great place to cap off the night.
Little Cheerful Cafe, 133 E. Holly St. was a favorite spot for breakfast.
Colophon Cafe, 1208 11th St., was always good for a bite to eat before wandering to Village Books.
Red Square, on Western’s campus, is an amazing place to reflect on life.
