What To Wear To Stateside


Oliver’s Lounge

“This downtown bar has been around for 40 years and has just the right amount of an old-school, lounge-y vibe for post-work cocktails. Plus, prime people-watching windows to boot.” -Lauren Mang

“Venture over to West Seattle for what I think is one of the best Hawaiian-inspired meals in the city. Start with the spam musubi, which is grilled spam atop rice and wrapped in nori dried seaweed, and then go with a foodie free-for-all of kimchi mac and cheese. Call ahead to reserve the fried chicken and order bacon, curry fried rice, and roasted broccoli.” -Lauren Mang
