We awoke in a bed for the first time of the trip. After packing our things, we headed into Seattle to spend a day sight seeing and eating before an evening flight back to Atlanta. We had a few places on the agenda.
First up was a franchise restaurant that has been popping up along the west coast called Veggie Grill. We had an early lunch of chickin nuggets, nachos, a buffalo chickin sandwich and a crunchy chickin sandwich with sides of mac and cheese and sweet potato fries. It was a huge meal for a lunch but we figured that we might not get another chance to try these dishes out so we gorged a bit.
After lunch, we headed to Singles Going Steady. This is Seattle's resident punk and hardcore record shop. They had some amazing vinyl but sadly, I didn't think I had a reliable way to get in on the flight.
After Singles Going Steady, we headed to the super touristy Pike's Market. After struggling to find parking, we headed into the market. Fortunately, the only salvation for this area is Left Bank Books. We wandered around the area for awhile and then headed out to a vegan bakery, Flying Apron. At the bakery we got a whoppie pie and a slice of vanilla, chocolate, strawberry cake to go.
After the bakery we rode around a bit and opted for an early dinner at Plum Bistro. This was kind of Seattle fine dining for vegans. Ashley ordered the mac & cheese again. I can not express how good this was. This was the best mac & cheese either of us had ever had. It was awesome. Then she had a triple mini burger plate and I had some seitan and oyster mushroom alfredo.
After dinner, we cleaned out the rental car, dropped it off and headed back to the airport for a red eye flight to Atlanta. Why can vacations not be forever?
