If any of you have yet to, check out Seattle's EMP! They often switch up the artists they are showcasing, so there is always something new to experience!
The Issaquah Highlands is a new up and coming development in Issaquah, and there are plenty of shops and bars such as Sip, for the wine enthusiasts, Agave, (I hear they have mammoth size margaritas!) The Ram, this place has an incredible beer selection! And not to mention insane happy hour deals! (Check out their Vampire Fries for you garlic lovers!)
For foodies who will be venturing to Seattle during your trip...You must check out El Borracho downtown Seattle. Their tacos are some of the best we have ever had, and ones than can definitely be eaten in abundance! Try their Carnitas taco (Coca-Cola braised pork.) or their Carne Asada tacos! YUM!
