Public funds no longer in play for Sodo arena | The Seattle Times
We, the people of Washington State, voted down sugestions that tax dollars should go to pay for the stadia (Safeco Field for the Sailorboys, QWest now CenturyLink for the Seachickens), but our Masters in Olympia knew better.

We have a Keurig. A single serving coffee maker fits our lifestyle better. (Can't believe I used the word "lifestyle...")
We use these to reuse older cups. We also buy a lot of the unofficial cup that do away with the plastic outer cup and paper inner filter, and instead just use a micro-filter outer pod, no inner. The "My Caps" work perfectly with those.
If you live anywhere near Seattle, coffee is a common gift, and these also let us buy ground coffee (or whole beans) and still use the coffee maker on our counter.
