Why I love visiting Seattle

Seattle 012

Seattle is so nice when it is sunny and warm. especially in spring. guest blogger from Portland metblogs here for the week to add a different perspective to your fine city. i have visited many times, but have never been in a position to actually write about my experience here. now i do.
i’m here for a week, so i have some requests for you at the end of the post. yesterday was amazing. the weather was just right and i got out of class a little early so I could venture out and wander the streets. i’m staying downtown, so i’m not far from anything. i’m a walker, so my first task was to venture up to Capitol Hill. i needed some din din and remember there were some choice eateries up there. i walked up Pine and then down Broadway to Pike and just snaked through the streets. honestly, nothing was screaming at me. there were some nice places, but since i didn’t know what to expect, i was a bit reserved. i finally ended up @ The Broadway Grill. great bar, great beer and a great salad. i’m glad i wandered in.
my walk back to the hotel took me down Pike where i discovered the interenet cafe i’m blogging from – Uncle Elizabeth’s. YAY free wifi.
So, my question for you – Wednesday evening – what should I do? I want to walk somewhere and get some good food. Maybe score a happy hour with good food AND drink. help a fellow northwesterner out. and…eat more pie!
also, i take pictures of everything, even my cocktails. checkout my ongoing Seattle photostream @ Flickr.

    Walk downtown and have drinks at the Palomino. Seriously good drinks.

    Ibiza downtown has a good happy hour for cocktails ($3 mojitos and sangrias) and really tasty empenadas.
