Eat Piroshky & Drink Cappuccino in Seattle

When I first announced my travel plans to Seattle, John over at Travel Rinse Repeat offered up a gift card to Piroshky Piroshky. Not only was I grateful that someone I never met would be so kind, but I was also stoked because I had heard that this food establishment was a master in their craft. […]

Eat the Best Clam Chowder in Seattle

As soon as I started mentioning to people that I was traveling to Seattle, they all immediately asked the same thing, "Are you going to catch a fish at Pikes?" Uh, it's on the bucket list, so I certainly hope so. But, after that, all the questions were related to eating the fresh seafood. Mostly, suggestions on where to […]

Eat Ugli Fruit. It Has a Good Personality.

After exiting Pike Place Market in Seattle, we walked across the street heading towards the Original Starbucks for a cappuccino, when I was stopped in my tracks. By Ugli Fruit. First, the colorful fruit stands caught my eye, then the temptation of Ugli Fruit. I am a sucker for trying strange food, though mostly of the […]

Explore the Seattle Underground in Pioneer Square

When I think of the "underground world" I immediately think of deep in the ocean, far beyond the depth a normal scuba diver could delve and where sunken ships are hidden. Never did I contemplate that it would be just one floor below the street level of a busy downtown. The Seattle underground awaits. Just […]

Eat Duck Gizzards & Beef Tongue in Seattle

I have had the not-so-much-pleasure of tasting lambs tongue before (never duck gizzards), on my 13th wedding anniversary. Not really a fan. Actually, I only took one bite. That was enough. But, that doesn't mean that I should exclude ever tasting any other animal tongue out there. Does it? Just a hop, skip and jump (all uphill) from Pike Place Market […]

Make a Contribution to the Seattle Gum Wall

I popped a piece of Spearmint gum in my mouth at Pike Place Market, in anticipation of visiting the Seattle Gum Wall. I wanted to be ready to make a contribution. The Seattle gum wall is located in Post Alley, just downstairs from Pikes, at the box office of the Market Theater. Back in the 90s, […]

Start a Grunge Band at EMP in Seattle

In grade school, we were required to learn an instrument and the gracefulness of the flute was calling my name. Apparently, not that loudly, because it was given to the popular girl and all that was left was one lonely clarinet. Nobody wants to be in a cool band with the clarinet girl. Even as an adult, the fantasy of rocking it on stage has […]

9 Non-Fishy Things at Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle

Immediately after dropping my luggage off at the Mayflower Park Hotel (and inhaling the complimentary chocolate covered cherries), I sprinted the four blocks to one of the countries most famous, markets, Pike Place Fish Market. I had a preconceived vision of Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle. It included throwing fish, catching fish and eating fish. And it was all that. […]
