    Oohh! How timely. I have a friend visiting this weekend and was just trying to contemplate the best places to go. Would also love to hear suggestions.

    We might do some cheap drinking at the wineries/red hook on the east side.

    I’ve always considered Pike Place Market and the International District to be pretty mandatory.

    Agreed–the market is a must. My friend had already been, so we opted to skip it in favor of places she hadn’t seen. Is there somewhere in particular you’d go in the International District?

    I also have a friend flying into town this weekend, but he’s been here a gazillion times so I’m having to think hard about new places to take him, while it’s raining.

    I’ve never been on the Smith Tower Observation deck in Pioneer Square. It’s supposed to have a great veiw, it’s a piece of Seattle history and evidently you also get to see the famous and elegantly appointed “Chinese Room”.

    For dinner I LOVE Aqua Verde, especially if you get a table on the deck. The food is great (and hormone free), reasonably priced, and the veiw of the water is lovely.

    And this is an odd suggestion: If you are strolling the International District, they have a number of tropical fish stores that are very tranquil to linger in. Tank after tank of fish, and the sound of bubbling water is calming. Old Seattle and you feel like you are in another world.

    I welcome additional suggestions.

    To out-of-towners, the ferries qualify as entertainment — especially with the return of food and beer sales :)
