Il Corvo, Pasta for lunch

Pasta, Pasta, or Pasta? At Il Corvo you have the choice between 3 house made authentic pasta dishes every day. We had 2 and they were delicious and perfectly cooked al dente, just the way I like them.  They also offer focaccia, olives, prosciutto and/or some greens.

The menu changes daily, but if you want to know ahead what the specials are, check here their website: Il Corvo

Most of the time there is a long line but it worth the wait and because of the etiquette, Order before you get a seat, you’ll be sure to have a seat.

Il Corvo, 217 James St between 2nd and 3rd. Open Monday through Friday for lunch only.


Klondike Gold Rush

This National Historic Park is always a fun visit. If you have kids, they have surely already had field trips there. Each time, we have out of towners, we “pay” the Klondike a small visit. Pay is not a good word choice as the admission is free.

The exhibit is about the fascinating time period in Seattle history when thousands of people arrived in town after newspapers ran the headline: “Gold in Yukon!”.  The exhibit in the “Park” (the ancient Cadillac Hotel in Pioneer Square) presents the story of the Gold rush to the Yukon, dreams that followed the announcement, the expeditions, choice of paths, gold, and destinies.

A scavenger hunt is available for kids. Ask the Park rangers.

Admission is free.

Klondike Gold Rush  319 Second Avenue South. On the northwest corner of 2nd Avenue South and South Jackson Street.



My favorite spot of the summer

Tomorrow is September 23rd: the official start of fall.

But just in case we have more beautiful sunny days like today, I wanted to share one of my favorite memories of this summer.

We went there for dinner with my family and out-of-town guests several times.

Why do I love this place? Two reasons: the location and the food!

On Alki Beach, on Harbor Ave, at the end of the Taxi Boat Terminal with a fantastic view of Seattle skyline.

Then the food! Korean and Hawaiian style, fresh and tasty.
