What a great Halloween weekend. Sigh...
We headed west last Thursday and spent a long three days in Seattle for a friend's wedding (at the beautiful Arctic Club), and also managed to patronize a number of my favorite Seattle foodie haunts. Yummm.
I don't miss everything about Seattle, but the diversity of food, restaurants, businesses and retail in general does not compare in the slightest to Baltimore.
Needless to say, I loved being back... even if just for a few days.
We managed to pop in at THE DISH, MIRO TEA, ESSENTIAL BAKING CO., A PIZZA MART, HERKIMER, VIVACE, VOXX COFFEE, 24 CARROT, THAI TOM, and PORTAGE BAY CAFE.
Here's my guide to Seattle, if you're interested. And here are a few personal favorites I like to recommend to outsiders who want to sample what Seattle has to offer.
