Seattle in the Summer

Summer is just flying by! This past weekend my mom came out to visit, and we were able to show her some of the amazing-ness that is Chicago. But first I must go back to the previous weekend in Seattle!!

Seattle is incredible.  We hit up delicious happy hours, went for a scenic but difficult run, explored the Bite of Seattle festival and of course went to Pike’s Place! Here are some details on the places we went and pictures of course!

Day 1:

Happy Hour at Peso’s Kitchen & Lounge . The happy hour menu is huge and delicious margaritas!!

Thai Food for our late night dinner >> Cheap & Delicious

Day 2:

The run >>> including wild berries, the Fremont Troll, rolling down hills at Gas Works Park, Lake Union and finishing with a great view of the Space Needle. Just under 8 miles…and a few sets of stairs that will have those beads of sweat rolling off your forehead.

Cafe Ladro Espresso, obvy.

Bite of Seattle Food Festival 🙂

Pike’s Place, Beecher’s Handmade Cheese

The sampler at The Pike Brewery

Bite of Seattle was huge! Almost too many vendors, I obviously went for the sweet option (Nutella Crepe). Yum.

I really love Seattle. If you haven’t been, you need to carve out some time to explore this city!

Happy Adventures,
