Trip to Seattle (9/25/10-9/26/10)

So this last weekend my husband and I, along with a bunch of friends, ventured off to Seattle to watch the Chargers vs Seattle game. We saw a few of the Charger players in down town Seattle, which was great, made the weekend more exciting and got us pumped for the game, we lost by a touchdown but we won't get into that.

We stayed at Hyatt Place Seattle, love this hotel. Our room had a huge flat screen TV, with a separate living room with a nice L-Shape couch with an ottoman. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is traveling up to Seattle.

Even though we barely had time to do much site seeing, we did get to walk around at Pike's Place Market and saw a lot of retailers selling and marketing their products. From flowers to jewelry to home made items to fresh fruits and vegetables, there were a lot of vendors selling a lot of pretty neat things. But this metal art  display called MetalCraft caught my eyes the most. They make the most amazing hand-made metal art. Check out their website and browse through their art.

We were aslo able to see the fish market employees throwing fish around, it was awesome. We didn't get to check out many seafood restaurants, although I wish we could of. We ended up eating at The Brooklyn, which was a Seafood, Steak & Oyster House. We made it just in time for happy hour which is from 3pm-6m. Oyster happy hour there was delicious and you can't really beat $1 per oyster. The food there was very tasty, a little bit on the pricey side if you were going to sit down for dinner but what steak and seafood house is cheap?

Anyway, just thought I'd share my travel opportunities.
