Oktoberfest, Lake Union, Flying Apron and More

27 Sep

A beautiful, sunny Saturday in Seattle took me around to three festivals, yummy food and more. Here’s a collection of some of the best images.

We started off the day at the Festa Italiana Seattle, which included music and food from the country. I was the first person to add my pin to the map. Unfortunately, we got there a bit early and there wasn’t much going on.

We survived a bike flat tire going down a busy highway (!) and made it to the opening of Lake Union Park, which is absolutely gorgeous. It was the perfect day for a park opening.

A collection of Native American tribes had a salmon bake, and introduced me to a new way of baking fish.

Kids took model sailboats for a spin around a new pond, with the Space Needle in the background.

From there, we headed back to Fremont and Blue Moon Burgers (@BlueMoonBurgers) for lunch.  Yummy, delicious burgers. High marks.

After that, we headed into Oktoberfest. There weren’t that many people when we first entered, but that quickly changed. More than 100 beers from all over the world were available and we had 12 tasting tokens.

There were some really good beers and some that were less successful.  All and all, though, we were very satisfied with the choices and selection.

At one point, we decided to take a break and stumbled upon the Flying Apron (@flyingapron), a vegan, gluten-free, wheat-free bakery. I was initially skeptical, but was proven quite wrong. We got a corn-berry muffin that was delicious. See below.

A summary of the day: lots of really different, interesting experiences.  High marks, Seattle.
