Dinner at the top of Seattle

This trip to Seattle was my fourth, but it was my first visit to the Space Needle. It is┬ácelebrating it’s 50th anniversary since opening at The World’s Fair in 1962. I had a spectacular view of Seattle, the ocean, and the bay.

Stephanie and Jacqueline, my new food blogger colleagues, and I ate dinner at the Sky Cafe at the top of the Space Needle. We started with chowder. Gotta love bacon.

I had the spinach salad with pansies

The gracious chef brought me my sushi. Yes I ate raw fish and I liked it.

Okay, the shrimp was cooked.

It was a lovely evening of food and wine shared with fellow food bloggers. Right before we went to the top of The Space Needle was got to see the brand new Dale Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum. Thanks Seattle for a nice welcome to begin the BlogHer Food conference.

In Seattle at the BlogHer Food Conference


So much to see and do in Seattle. Arriving Thursday June 7th amidst rain, of course, it is Seattle. Ventured into the best place in the world for seafood, meats, produce, flowers, ┬árestaurants, eclectic stores and vendors – Pike Place Market.

Met two new blogging friends Stephanie from Texas http://www.foodandfitness4real.com and Jackie from California theseasidebaker.com.  More to come on dinner last night at The Space Needle.
