Bamboo Sushi

My perfect weekend begins with riding my bike to happy hour at the NE Alberta location for some sustainable and delectable fish! The bike path on NE Going between NE Grand and NE 33rd is one of my favorites.

Land Gallery & Gift Shop

Back to my neighborhood in hopes of catching an opening night in the upstairs gallery space or browsing the ground-level shop for cool cards, prints, books, and gifts by over 100 Northwest artists.



The breakfast at this café inside Yoga Pearl is delightful. The former owner is a gifted cuisine artist who has created a fresh and delicious menu of nourishing gluten-free and vegan foods.

The Fossil Cartel

I can spend hours here, mesmerized and inspired by the variety of crystals, minerals, fossils, and meteorites from all around the world.


New Cascadia Traditional

Breakfast at this lovely gluten-free bakery and café makes my day. Their bagels with vegan cream cheese and lox are delectable!
