Seattle: More than Starbucks and plaid


As a teenager in the mid-to-late 90’s, images of Seattle were influenced by bands like Nirvana and Soundgarden.  In my mind, it was a faraway land covered in clouds and always misty, with angsty people wrapped in plaid and rebelling from society by refusing to wash their hair.  But then Starbucks, and Amazon, and pictures on social media of the Space Needle and nearby parks and mountains and tons of awesome stuff.  Eventually, I started thinking about Seattle in color, and I really wanted to go.

So, we went.  We hit all of the obvious tourist stops (the aforementioned Space Needle, the Great Wheel on Pier 57, Pike’s Place Market, etc.), and we enjoyed some incredible live music at Jazz Alley, ate ridiculous sushi at Nishino, and indulged in some rec goodies.

Long story short, our time in Seattle kicked ass.  2 nights wasn’t nearly enough, so I can’t wait to go back and explore more of what the city has to offer.
