Big Seattle Weekend!

July 14, 2011

It’s a busy weekend around Seattle so there are no excuses. So many opportunities to eat, drink, eat & drink. I’ve listed a few that I’m squeezing in amongst some other activities but even if you can only make it to just one of these, you can’t go wrong. Hopefully next week I’ll have enough energy back to give you the run down on my Seattle to Portland Bicycle Classic that took place this last weekend. I will NOT be riding my bike anywhere this weekend!

Have fun and happy almost Friday!
