Seattle Visitor’s Guide

Knowing there are more folks coming up to visit, I decided it was worth throwing a list together of some cool things to see. Most importantly a list of all the museums and theatres to see what’s showing when someone comes up! I expect to add more things to this list as I find them (either myself or via replies to this entry :)

Dearth of favorite restaurants

Seattle has some great eating establishments, but so very few of my favorites. I was so nostaglic for them this morning that I mapped out how far some of them were away.

  • Amy’s Ice Cream – 2118 miles (Austin, TX)
  • Chipotle – 1 mile (Seattle, WA)
  • Chuy’s – 2150 miles (Dallas, TX)
  • Freebirds – 1170 miles (Orange, CA)
  • Rudy’s “Country Store” BBQ – 1400 miles (Colorado Springs, CO)
  • Sonic – 26 miles (Tacoma, WA)
  • Schlotzsky’s – 240 miles (Veradale, WA)
  • Taco Cabana – >1000 miles (their locator errored out!)
  • Z-Tejas – 11 miles (Bellevue, WA)

but most importantly:

  • My Granny’s kitchen – 1719 miles (Littlefield, TX)

I see a road-trip to Tacoma in my near future. I’m in dire need of a Route 44 Cherry Coke, easy ice.
