This photo shows a local neighborhood "map" in the window of one of my favorite stores anywhere, Metsker Maps in downtown Seattle. "Without geography, we're nowhere," proclaims a bumper sticker from what's been a family-run institution for over...

Unicorn is one of my favorite places to take visitors because there's just so much to look at: the lurid circus-painted walls, the costumed and accessorized taxidermy, the lavishly painted bar that seems to have been pulled off a carousel. During...

Moore Coffee is a gem found in the historic Moore building. Look for the mini patio and wooden doors leading into this cozy Seattle coffeehouse. Alma, the head barista, has a talent for cute latte art, ranging from the typical latte leaf to bears...

You may be wondering, "What's so secret about a drugstore?" Ah, but Bartell Drugs is much more than a quick stop for band-aids or travel size toothpaste (although it's that, too). Not everyone realizes that this local chain carries a wide...

Love local beer? You can't get much more local than the Elysian Brewery, which brews its beer in Georgetown, a neighborhood in south Seattle. They offer 20-plus different beers at their three locations. They're possibly best known for their Night...

Pike St, Seattle, WA 98101, USA
I could find this sign in Seattle. Actually at first time, I just passed this sign but when I came back in front of this sign, I could hardly believe my eyes. Original text was "One Way", but someone changed it. Maybe someone wanted to memorize...

When I say that this is my favorite cycling-inspired store on the planet, please know that I've more than done my homework. Not only is it in such a cool area of Seattle (where all of the stores in the same neighborhood are equally as creative),...
1005 Boren Ave, Seattle, WA 98104, USA
As its name implies, the Hideout isn’t the most centrally located place, and it can be a bit difficult to find the nondescript entrance (unromantically close to the Virginia Mason hospital). But step inside, and it’s a different world: dimly lit,...
