    I second museum of pop culture. I know the space needle is a tourist thing but it is really neat to see the city from it.
    I recommend Kerry park for the best view of the city as well
    In general when I went I tried to see as many “tourist” attractions as possible and I was really happy with it.
    If you’re a nirvana fan viretta Park next to Kurt cobains house is a nice little tribute to check out

    Space Needle is boooooring. The only good tourist thing is the market and thats because Beechers Mac N Cheese is The Truth. Go across the lake to Gasworks park. That whole neighborhood of Freemont/Ballard is my favorite area to walk around.

    Smoke a lot of weed (if you’re into that kind of thing) and then lay by any body of water

    Also get pho and teriyaki. I might argue that teriyaki is the food of Seattle.

    For anyone who is interested, I have an extra ticket to the Now, Now show tonight. Giving it away for free! It's the The Crocodile at 7pm.

    take the light rail into downtown and walk around. if you're in pike place, get some fish and chips.. check out country dough for thick chinese noodles. OR get some teriyaki. i think that can fill up a few hours. also weed.

    You look like bad news, I gotta have you Prestigious

    Lmao I didn't realize car seat headrest is from Seattle and I always whine about how they play in Seattle a lot but don't always come to PDX oop. Makes sense now. They're playing next week and I wanna go but five hour drive and the money that comes with that ughh smh I need to sort my priorities

    I was considering it but $60/ticket might be enough to come to my senses lol

    Urgh...Yeah, I didn't realize tickets were that much. That seems like a lot for them.

    Edit: And it's at the Vera Project, which I've never paid more than $15 for a ticket to see a show at. Super weird.

    Yeah it looks like a good cause holiday show so idk if that's why? I think the last few times they've played its been on days that are too hard for me, so I was hyped to see a Saturday show but smh! Last time they played PDX I had to drive to a work thing so I missed it and I've been annoyed since! One day it'll work out!!

    Yeah, looks like it's a show to benefit the Vera Project, which makes sense. It's our local DIY venue, so surprising it cost that much. You should move to a more convenient place for concerts!

    I agree! I always whine that the city costs too much but with what I spend on gas and hotels for shows I'm sure it evens out at least a bit. When I had to drive 3 hours home immediately after the boygenius show last night I was so cranky and cursing like every city resident who got to drive fifteen minutes home and go to sleep lol

    Understandable. That was like a 4 hour show. I couldn't imagine having to add 6 hours of driving to that, same day!

    $60 for a show at the Vera Project? That's freaking madness

    At first tickets said $40-60 and I was like ok maybe I can do $40 but only options were $60 and that's too much for me even tho I'm sure the show will be great

    Oh hey guys. I'm here procrastinating at work so to avoid a snooze fest in my cubicle this Sunday, I decided to stop by and say hey!
