Seattle, Friday, 11 p.m. The downtown of America's Most Livable City, home to the spiffy new Robert Venturi-designed art museum and other cultural magnets, is looking, well, it's looking pretty dead. The famous rain is doing a splendid job keeping the streets clear of the prosperous-looking citizens who by day scurry in and out of white-collar redoubts. At this hour, Baby-Booming, Volvo-driving, politically correct Seattle has clearly called it a night.

History is a series of momentous shifts: Republican leadership gives way to Democratic. The two-parent family bows to the era of the single mother. And, most recently, moose creamers have edged out coyote salt-and-pepper shakers on the nation's dinner tables. The Southwest style that once captured the palates and decorator instincts of Americans has passed its zenith. These days, the style and look reign supreme from a once-neglected corner of the continent. It's Northwest style.

Flying high over the gloomy face of recession, America's handcrafted beer industry is expanding at 30% or 40% or even 50% a year--reclaiming foreign inroads in the U.S. market by offering that most elusive of domestic commodities: old-fashioned quality. And brewers of handmade beers are contributing, if only a little, to restoring a sense of community by producing local ales and lagers in the manner of the past: something special for a town, something that is its alone.

The morning after last month's Tony ceremonies, the artistic director of the Seattle Repertory Theatre headed home from New York with a Tony award for Outstanding Regional Theatre. But that wasn't all Daniel Sullivan brought back to Seattle. He also brought a couple of well-known Seattle Rep fans with him.

When members of the Seattle Organizing Committee sat down to plan the 1990 Goodwill Games here, they felt swimming, figure skating and gymnastics were just a start. They wanted Ted Turner's huge international sporting event to have a cultural side too. The result? The Goodwill Games themselves don't start until July 20, but beginning Monday is the Goodwill Arts Festival, four weeks of world-class productions and mini-festivals. Budgeted at $12.

It is a curious ritual, and it is practiced here with cheery determination. People go to the supermarkets. But before they load their carts, they stand in line. They go to a garden nursery. Before looking at plants and bulbs, however, they line up. It's the same at medical centers and department stores. And of course they line up outside office buildings before heading up the elevators to their jobs. They are lining up for coffee.
