[eat] the pink door

The Pink Door is one of the reasons I moved to the Northwest fifteen years ago. I so clearly remember the first time we found the door and opened it to discover delicious Italian food and an exciting ambiance. This is a must-visit!

VLOG Episode 3: Pike Place Market

The Pike Place Market is something that you can see, smell, and actually taste, which is just part of the reason I love it so much!

[party] how to throw me the PERFECT 30th birthday party

The food is where the party planners excelled. They ordered food from all of my favorite places. We had charcuterie from Rain Shadow Meats, pretzels and all of the dips from Brave Horse Tavern, an assortment of popcorn from Kukuruza, chicken nuggets from McDonalds (don’t judge me!), doughnuts from Daily Dozen Donut Co and – the piece de resistance – a giant El Diablo from Tango!

[happy hour] chan

Chan is an upscale Korean restaurant hidden within the Inn at the Market’s plaza in the Pike Place Market. We decided to order all six items on the happy hour menu – which set us back only $36 total – a steal of a deal!

[eat] lunch at il corvo

The restaurant itself is small and cozy, tucked into a top tier of the Pike Place Market Hillclimb – a place that you could stop in for a quick-ish bite to eat or where you could linger for a bit longer, should you choose to enjoy some wine with your meal or gelato after!
