Wecome to the Northwest! Before you focus on the DG courses, you need to purge your body of all that Wisconsin beer (Miller) and reaclimate it to the fine NW micro's. Since you live in Ballard, I suggest you put some socks on under your sandles, and bike over to the Noble Fir. If they have Black Raven on tap, try the IPAs.
Other than that, my only advice is to play Seatac, Lakewood, and White River. If you ever make it to Snohomish County (on your way to Canada), stop by Lake Stevens for a beer....or a round.
