I'll use this page for any neat things I find that I really recommend.
Go Eat Breakfast:
The Hi-Life in Ballard. It's in a cool 1911 firehouse and you must try their "Fancy French Toast". It's Vanilla custard dipped Columbia bread griddled and topped with espresso-mascarpone & sugared hazelnuts and it is incredible! Their number is 206.784.7272.
Go Eat Dinner:
At the Icon Grille in Seattle. It's high end comfort food in a great atmosphere. I highly recommend their artichoke dip (but ask for extra crostini), their fried chicken (even split between two people), their Green Envy martini (yeah, a girl drink), and Christi loves splitting a macaroni and cheese across the table. I also recommend their cookbook. I love making the walnut fried brie, and the potato wrapped halibut. Their number is 206.441.6330.
At Palisade in Magnolia over in Seattle. They have great seafood and stunning views of the Seattle skyline. (206.285.1000)
Go Listen To:
Bullet in a Bible, by Green Day. It's their new live album from the American Idiot tour and it is incredible. Very punk, very fun, and outstanding workout music.
Anything by Mark Knopfler. He's the former lead singer for Dire Straits and I like everything he does.
Orbiting the Giant Hairball by Gordon MacKenzie. Christi and I saw one of the inventors of the game Cranium present once and he said it was outstanding. It talks about releasing your creativity at work and avoiding the bureaucracy to increase your productivity while still driving the goals of the company.
