So, last weekend we spent a couple of days in Seattle, thanks to Klout! Well, this is Part 3 of our trip and the second half of our second day. After, visiting Pike Place Market and the Bite of Seattle, we headed to the EMP museum (Experience Music Project).
This was actually my second time visiting the EMP. The first time, I was in high school, and it wasn’t too long after they first opened it.
It’s always neat to see and read all about the history of Seattle Rock music and the bands that came out of Seattle. Even I remember listening to Nirvana, AC/DC, and the Rolling Stones, growing up.
The pics above are from the “shadow monsters” interactive feature inside the Can’t Look Away: The Lure of Horror Film exhibit. It was way too fun. You could move your hands, face, and body around, and it would create these shadows on the wall. How? I have no idea, but it’s awesome!
Also in town last weekend were the clowns for Seafair, which just happened to be staying in the same hotel. I took a pic of one of their vehicles.
After a little pit stop to the hotel to take a break and change for dinner, we headed down to the pier to The Crab Pot for dinner with our friends. What’s special about this place, is the fact that they literally put all your food on the table in front of you. That pic above, is all three of our meals. That’s snow crab, clams, mussels, salmon, shrimp, corn, sausage, and potatoes. Crazy right? Let me tell you, it was absolutely delicious.
After dinner with friends, we tracked back up to the Seattle Center for coffee. We were trying to kill a little time, waiting for the sun to go down. The reason being, someone suggested that the best time to go to the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum was at night.
The Chihuly Glass Exhibit was created by the amazing glass sculptor Dale Chihuly. I remember hearing about him and watching shows on television, showing off his amazing work. His pieces, are even more amazing in person.
We ended up doing so much, in just a short period of time. Of course, there is always way more to see and do in Seattle. If you ever have the chance to visit, do it. I promise, you won’t regret it.
Klout provided us with hotel stay, a gas gift card and visa gift card to use for our stay. All thoughts and opinions are always my own, and I was neither asked or required to post about our trip.
