Seattle Tree Lust

Experiencing Seattle tree lust. Walking and wandering, taking in the perpetually misty air that saturates the ground, the air, the trees.

Our Seattle Premiere at Neumo's was a smash hit. 500+ people, dancing their bodies into sweaty oblivion. During the days we're planning our next events, but are also eating and exploring. We've had some good bites so far at:

The Fat Hen (more on this soon), but beautiful brunch, pastries, wainscotted walls, deep gray enamel light fixtures and geode-shaped sugar cubes
Delancey: gorgeous blistering pizza, homemade fennel pork sausage, great local beers on tap, (and hey! we're having an event here tomorrow night)
Smith: great pub fare and a beautiful beer list down in Capitol Hill. Taxidermy and random found portraiture on the walls (sound like Brooklyn? Anyone? Anyone?)
Cafe D'Arte: ugly interior, but a good cup of coffee. A few blocks from Pike's Market.
Lowell's: A tourist haven, yes, but lovely view overlooking the Puget Sound and great for the fish n'chips sort of fare that you just need sometimes.
Honore: Very sweet French bakery / boulangerie next door to Delancey in Ballard. Get the Kouign-Amann, an outrageous salty-sweet pastry originally from Brittany that combines the best of a danish with the best of creme brulee.
