The Canlis facebook page warned downtown Seattleites that the clue would likely be out of their reach. But it didn't stop us from wanting to answer the question to see if it would be a feasible distance away.
Shortly after 11am the clue was posted and we began to brainstorm. For some reason, the first thing to come to mind was "Lunchbox Laboratory" in Ballard. I would assume that people in the lab may occasionally use C:\? Quite honestly, I was at a loss for the train of thought that led me to the this conclusion.
Hot Sushi was not much help when he suggested that because he loves burgers so much, perhaps the clue was hidden on him? After refusal for a strip search, we had to move on.
The third guess was the lunch room at Microsoft. We were much closer with this guess. However, by the time we came up with this guess we realized that the menu was already found and far out of reach.
The clue was found at the Burgermaster in Bellevue. the C:\ was the clue to Bill Gates who used to frequent the drive-up burger joint.
I must admit, it is intimidating to see how quickly people are beginning to find the clues. Within minutes of the clue's posting, someone has posted that they have found it. Perhaps people are trying to deter folks from continuing the search? We will find out....
