“The Thompson just opened in Seattle, and it’s fantastic. The architectural design work by Olson Kundig feels modern and minimal while still being warm and inviting. Sitting by one of the rooftop fire pits and enjoying drinks while watching the sunset with friends, reminds me how lucky I am to live in Seattle.” -Chris Young

Canon

“Not only does Canon have the Western Hemisphere’s largest spirits collection—or so they claim, and I don’t doubt them—but the bartenders also craft some of the best cocktails I’ve ever enjoyed. If you’re looking for something theatrical, try the ‘Campfire in Georgia’.” -Chris Young

“There’s a very good reason that people line up outside of The Independent Pizzeria and wait for Joe Heffernan to make them a pizza. After one gooey, chewy bite, you too might think it’s the best pizza in the world.” –Chris Young

“Seattle has great waterfront parks, and my favorite to walk through is Myrtle Edwards Park, which runs along Elliott Bay from the fishing terminal to downtown. If you’re not in a hurry, you can spend some time wandering through the Olympic Sculpture Park, near the south end of the Myrtle Edwards.” -Chris Young
