Guide to Seattle Art Walks

If you like interesting art, visiting with artists, wandering through neighborhoods, museums and cafés, an Art Walk is a great activity, no matter what time of year.

These Art Walks offer a free and easy opportunity to enjoy the arts in neighborhoods across the city, and by bringing the community together, they support both Seattle’s talented artists and small businesses. Interesting Fact: the First Thursday Art Walk in Pioneer Square (started in 1981) was in fact the first in the nation, and set the stage for over a dozen Art Walks now held regularly throughout the city – and nationwide!

Seattle Farmers Markets Guide

Farmers markets have traditionally been a gathering of the tribe as much as a collection of freshly harvested fruits and vegetables.  In recent years the culture and excitement behind farmers markets has expanded to become kind of a low-key celebration of urban community and country food. It’s a place to eat, drink, enjoy music and network with neighbors. So grab your tote bags and head out to one or more of Seattle’s fantastic markets!

Soi Brings Authenticity to Cap Hill

08Craving something new? Soi on Capitol Hill is bringing authenticity to our city in the form of delicious Thai food. Their focus is the cuisine from the Northeastern plateau region of Thailand called Issan. Soi believes that Seattle deserves more than your typical, generic Thai food and we aren’t the kind to disagree!

Though their focus is on Issan Style Thai food, they also provide food from five different regions, such as Nahm Khao Tod (Crispy Rice Salad), Som Tum Issan (Papaya Salad), and Kor Moo Yahng (BBQ’s pork collar) from Issan, Khao Soi (curry noodle soup) and Pad Ped Pla (stir-fired cat fish in a non-coconut milk curry) from Chiang Mai in the North, Gai Yahng (BBQ’d chicken on an actual rotisserie), and Kor Moo Krob (crispy pork belly) from central Thailand.

Discover what it’s really like to eat in Thailand in this modern, airy space for lunch, dinner, and happy hour. 05Actually, their happy hour is one of our favorites. Located at 10th and Union, Soi’s happy hour is daily from 3-6pm, Sun-Thurs 10-11pm and Fri/Sat 10pm-midnight! Perfect for those late night munchies (and their drink menu isn’t bad either).

Grab a towel before you click through to see this listing so you don’t drool all over your keyboard. This 1922 historic Harvard-Belmont Tudor was designed by noted architects Woodruff Somervell and Joseph Cote, while the exterior grounds were designed and landscaped by the famed Olmsted brothers. Patti Payne from the Puget Sound Business Journal says that the “incredible hand-carved Siberian oak trim, leaded glass windows and ornate Italian plaster ceiling” are what makes this place truly unique. Checkout her “Cool Pads” column to see what else she has to say about it.

In our opinion, this house is the perfect mix of cute and sexy. That’s it. We’ve died and gone to house heaven.
