“FieldTrips” is either a day trip or a few days where I visit food areas of interest which may include farm visits, producers, wineries, restaurants and/or other places that people can visit. This is about offering Vancouver Foodster readers a chance to get out of town and take a “Field Trip” for the day or a few days to explore, learn, taste and experience.
1 day, 2 day or 3 day itinerary
Field Trip to Seattle
Day 2 my visit to Seattle continued from Day 1
Checked in to our hotel at the The Monaco where our room had 2 double beds, chair and a mini goldfish aquarium. The room featured Italian Frette linens and luxury bath amenities. Each day they have a hosted wine reception in their lobby from 5 to 6 pm, they have an onsite 24-hour fitness center featuring cardio and resistance equipment as well as an onsite 24-hour business center with a PC, Mac, printer and fax.
I then headed back over to the Westlake area to the Bravehorse Tavern to try some of their house-baked Brick Oven Pretzels as they are known for a vast selection of craft brews and their pretzels. I had their Pretzels with 3 dips including the outstanding smoked peanut butter and bacon.
310 Terry Avenue North
It was then back to the hotel to change for dinner and then a 1 block walk over to Tulio to meet up with my cousin and family.
We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at this notable Italian restaurant.

The next day I went for a morning walk through downtown to Pike Place Market. I revisited many of the popular eateries and food shops.
Walked back to the hotel to pack up my things and check out. This was a modern elegant hotel in one of the best locations in Seattle, within blocks of Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square and Westlake.
