Day 3: Summer in Seattle

Seattle, WA

Our Sunday morning began with a hike to Rattlesnake Ledge. I was pretty anxious about intensive trail-trekking because — let’s just say I’m not exactly proud of the shape I’m in. But, the hike turned out to be easy enough for a couch potato like me. Also, the stunning natural beauty made every step worth it. If you couldn’t tell by my last hiking post, I absolutely love all things nature (contrary to my fitness).

When we finally reached the end of the hike, we were blown away by the breathtaking view. I was in absolute awe of how picturesque and utterly vibrant the mountains and lake appeared. The journey back to the car was a quick one, mostly downhill. We then drove down to Nibbana Thai Restaraunt in Bellevue, where I lunched on a rewarding dish of Pad Kee Mao. Then, it was back to Shannon’s where we washed up before hitting the Seattle night scene.

Frolik, a rooftop bar atop the Motif Hotel, was just one of the many bars we hit that night. After lounging around for awhile, we decided to Uber it to Capitol Hill. Coincidentally, our Uber driver just happened to be the most attractive guy ever. Surprise surprise, when we found out he was also the lead singer in a band called Daniel Kirkpatrick and the Bayonets. If you want to check them out, here’s the page to McSteamy’s — I mean — Daniel’s band.

Anyways, after hopping around a few bars, we ended up making some new friends at Unicorn. The circus-themed bar was fun, quirky and definitely different from any other bar I’d been to. From the creepy circus animal heads mounted on the walls to the interestingly named cocktails (i.e. Unicorn Jizz), the bar is everything you’re looking for in a unique night out. For all you 21+, Unicorn is the place to check out if you ever get around to visiting Capitol Hill. Finally, after trying out a much anticipated “Seattle dog” we decided to call it a night and Uber’d it home.
