Friends make the bad times good and the good times unforgettable!
Sometimes you just need a lil getaway. This weekend Chris and I headed to Seattle with Cristi and Gene. It was a turn and burn trip filled with food, drinks, thrifting and tons of belly laughs. Seattle seems a bit more on the serious side than my favored Portland but for the most part I found the people to be pretty darn pleasant.
We took the train which I had never done before.
I was very excited.
Me and my babe.
Cristi and hers:)
Come on I had to take this picture, while all the other passengers think *dork*
The train took about 4 hours and it flew by. Our first night there we walked through the gum alley to my favorite bar, the Zig Zag Cafe.
This place serves up some of the best drinks my lips have ever sipped, not to mention killer food.
After a bit of time here we searched for food.
We ended up at El Borracho and had some super tasty tacos.
Chris getting some hot sauce advice from a local :)
The next day we started early
and had breakfast at the over hyped Lola's, but the donuts were good.
Soaked up the sun.
Drooled at these beautiful pepper wreaths.
and the crab!
Then Cristi and I split from the boys because I wanted to check out the original Red Light Clothing on University Ave.
We downloaded our Uber app, found a ride and were on our way!
The place did not disappoint.
I will share my scores another time, but just know that we were in here about 2 hours. We popped into another vintage shop I wanted to share with Cristi called Pretty Parlor. I won't get into what happened in that shop but the owner was not in and when I asked the gal working if she was the owners Mom because she was like 60 and super cute and I know they work together she went off on me like a crazy old lady. I have never been treated so poorly in my entire life. I apologized and she still continued on. This is not an isolated incident after I posted what a bitch that gal was on YELP I noticed several reviews stating similar experiences. How can a place like that stay in business?
NEXT.....was The Pine Box it used to be a mortuary built in 1920 now it's a bar!
Bruce Lee had his funeral here too.
Next thing you know we were headed home, with our bags a little heavier.
