Just got back from a long weekend in Seattle. What a great city! We really lucked out with the weather – mostly clear, and even sunny at times! A friend we visited up there assured us that this weather was, in fact, a freak occurrence. The view from the top of the Space Needle was amazing, mountains and water all around. I got my inner rock star on at the Experience Music Project, which is kind of like a mini R’n’R Hall of Fame West. If in Seattle, and a music freak like myself, it’s a do-not-miss. The food also rocked up there. We had many great meals, stuffing ourselves like any good heathen on vacation should. My wife carefully plotted out a food based itinerary, and she did not disappoint. From the happy hour sliders and Alpine Martini at Cascadia, to the goat cheese-lavender fondue and coconut cream pie at the Palace Kitchen, to the pain au chocolat at Cafe Besalu and all the local and Belgian ales on tap at the Old Town Taproom, it was a foodies delight. Another thing I really loved about Seattle was just how friendly everyone I came into contact with was. I mean genuinely friendly. And maybe I just happened to not run into anyone having a shitty day, but it was refreshing. Fun city.
