My brother and I bolstered our collection of sibling travel experiences with a weekend in Seattle. Having only been through the Pacific Northwest gem on business, and knowing how much I enjoy Portland, I have been eager to spend some QT in Seattle. I was able to pick the brains of a few Seattle-based coworkers on the best restaurants, whiskey spots and anything else I mustn’t miss. They did me right.
Sat. morning, after seeing the folks off on their Alaskan cruise, we cruised to Elysian Brewing Co. for a flight. The beer was tasty; the service what you’d expect from Nirvana/Hole 90s emo socially-acceptable behavior.
With temps in the record high-70s range, we enjoyed the most hospital staff and tastiest greyhounds at the Four Seasons's pool.
Aperitif round #1 was at locally-recommended Purple Cafe & Wine Bar. The name sounded kind of cheesy to me, but the place was NOT. I admired their micro greens spread.
Antiques at Pike Place is deceiving - I entered thinking I could quickly snag something amazing for the folks and then realized the depth of the store. The merch is amazing, but don’t come here unless you have either 3 hours or a strong will!
