Love being a tourist in my hometown


Had a friend from Atlanta visiting last week, in Seattle taking photos for a book on street food. Angie and I packed a whole lot into two days.

In between sampling meals on wheels -- the Cuban place on 90th and Aurora was my fave -- we also had a wonderful dinner at Crow, ate oysters at Elliott's, sandwiches at Salumi, cookies from Bakery Nouveau, biscuits and gravy at Citizen and spicy Bloody Marys at Taste at the Seattle Art Museum. Not in that order, mind you.

It wasn't only about the food. We saw the new Alexander Calder exhibit at SAM, went up in the Space Needle, walked around the Pike Place Market and rode the Monorail. Good fun.

What do you do when out-of-towners come for a visit?

I've been in Seattle for a little under two years, after relocating from Atlanta. I've been sick almost the whole time. Fortunately, I discovered it was a VITAMIN-D deficiency. That can be fixed! So, I'm looking forward to getting to know Seattle FINALLY. Hopefully your blog and others like it will point out places I've missed!
