“In my own neighborhood of Queen Anne, stop by Bar Miriam for a cocktail on your way to Eden Hill Restaurant for dinner. Tell Chef David I sent you—you won’t leave disappointed. Over in Capitol Hill, it’s easy to spend an afternoon wandering around Elliott Bay Book Company and grabbing a coffee (OK, and a cookie) at Odd Fellows Café + Bar. Check out Glasswing for a mix of small fashion brands and home goods as well as Kobo for beautiful objects and gifts. On a rainy weekend, you might also find me at Lander Street Vintage in SoDo hunting for treasures.”
