In November 2008, we flew to Seattle for a long weekend. We were really into Grey’s Anatomy at that point---you know, before it turned into the self-absorbed mush it is now---and for the entire trip, we kind of made believe we were in one of the episodes. Before we left, we asked the Internet for suggestions, and were blown away by all the fantastic recommendations and ideas. We stuck fairly religiously to the list, which you’ll find below. We particularly enjoyed the mac and cheese at Beecher’s, the tiny cinnamon donuts at Daily Dozen, the Underground Tour, browsing Elliott Bay Books, taking the ferry over to Bainbridge Island, the view from Queen Anne Park, the pizza at Serious Pie, and the desserts at Dahlia Bakery. If you’re looking for a place to stay, we were at the Pan Pacific Seattle for three nights and found it most delightful. We could see the Space Needle while taking a shower.
