A Day at Pike Place Market, Perfect Ending

First stop was at Mirch Masala, on Capital Hill, to make up for the disgusting, bland excuse for Indian food that we had last night.  That is the danger of Living Social and Groupon; those groups don’t hand pick the best, any business that wants to put a voucher out is free to do so.  I have now learned my lesson to check places out before I get too excited.  Today’s lunch was amazing!  The perfect level of spicy.  The garlic, basil naan was so perfect.
We were headed up to the market and ran across the shop where you meet to go on Market Ghost Tours & Espresso; the sign outside caught my eye, salted caramel lattes.  As we were chatting with the guy, I noticed he had a Captain Spaulding T-shirt.  I adore the Rob Zombie movies, House of 1000 Corpses and he Devils Rejects.  He said he’s met the entire cast of the movie and met Captain Spaulding twice. I had goose bumps; I was star struck for some reason, ha ha.  He told us about a horror film convention that he hosts Memorial Day Weekend every year, Crypticon.  I might have to check it out in 2013.

Now of to the gum wall; haven’t been there in a couple of years.
We picked up some jalapeno bread from the bakery for our pulled pork, and some zucchini and yellow squash as a side.  We then strolled along picked up a few more things, BBQ sauce, tamarind paste and checked out the street performers aka buskers.
As we headed down to the waterfront we found a cute French shop.  I picked up some amazing chevre cheese and a cucumber soda. Ever since I had some cucumber water a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been craving more cucumber.  Then my friend won after entering his cucumber wine in the State Fair.  The soda was really great, perfectly refreshing and the right amount of sweet.  We sipped the soda as we strolled to the waterfront to get some ice cream and check out the sights.
The market was a perfect ending to a weekend, I had so many adventures with my family and Tyler this weekend.

I hope you all had fantastic weekends as well!  I feel so refreshed.  One week of work then a week off to spend with my bestest friends of all times in Texas.



  1. That Indian looks pretty good, I'm telling you though, after India I'm a huge fan. If u get a chance to go to India one day you will absolutely be in heaven (well for the food anyway, when you step out of the restaurant it's a different story). Otherwise sounds like u had a great weekend!!! I know next weekend will be even better. I see that your craving alot of "cucumber" hahahaha are you trying to send messages?!?!? ��

  2. Bwahahaha! I can't wait for next weekend and I'm in shock that I'm there for 8 days. That's 8 days that you have to entertain me! Are you ready for that? I'm so freaking excited.

  3. Oh I love Pike Place Market! Such a great spot for a little bit of a feel of everything. And I totally feel you on the group ons- I've been burned by them a couple of times. You definitely have to use them with caution! Just found your blog and have loved getting to know you better. I'm so excited to follow along!
