I've heard good things about the Brat Pack from others, too -- thanks. Thought I would answer my own question in case others search this thread -- I went to a great place in Columbia City (in South Seattle): Columbia City Cuts on Rainier Avenue, shares space with Retroactive Kids. Kid can sit in a car chair & play with a limited selection of toys during the cut, which was great, and Dina, the woman who did the cut, is super nice & patient. I was very pleased. $20 for kid cut. 206-327-9591.
