Super Guppy on display this past weekend. It was in town to deliver the crew compartment of the full-sized Space Shuttle Trainer to the museum. This is the only remaining Super Guppy still in service (of the original 5), and is operated by NASA to ferry parts. New art space in Georgetown invites visitors to become one with the artwork.

This is the only remaining Super Guppy still in service (of the original 5), and is operated by NASA to ferry parts. This 1907 Curtis Steam Turbine is one of only a handful still remaining from the early days of electrical power generation. Turbine design was at the forefront of technology in the early 1900s, and this particular turbine is a wonderful example, as it generated nearly 3 times the power of an adjacent turbine installed just one year earlier. Later, in 1917, a much smaller third turbine was added, which itself generated nearly as much power as the first two turbines combined. Such is the relentless pace of technology, and why so few of these historical turbines remain.
The Georgetown Steam Plant was built in 1906 to provide power for Seattle's streetcars, the city of Georgetown, and the Seattle-Tacoma Railway. Although the turbines were state-of-the art for their time, the technology was advancing so quickly that the plant became outdated within 10 years. It was soon relegated to secondary status and was used occasionally through the 1970s during droughts and to meet peak power demand.
Today, the nearly-complete plant is operated as a free museum and is open to the public the second Saturday of every month from 10am-2pm.
If you listened to rock music in the 1980's, you might recognize this view. Though in that case the tail number would have been Beer is flowing out of the old Rainier Brewery once again, as Emerald City Brewing set up shop last fall. The coolest park ever, with a giant cowboy hat and cowboy boots. (In a former life, they were part of what must have been an awesome gas station.)
These days, the park has a community garden patch and Friday night kid-friendly concerts all summer long. #kidsfun Great modern American cuisine, and a bangin' happy hour - 40% off signature cocktails!
This is the grilled asparagus with a perfectly, and I mean PERFECTLY, poached egg. And chorizo vinaigrette. Fantastic. Chilaquiles verde at Smarty Pants. Eggs any way you like 'em, plus carne asada and tortillas with spicy green salsa.
Hearty and spicy, my favorite cures-what-ails-ya brunch. The boiler room at the Steam Plant offers an eerie glimpse into early 20th-century working conditions. Oil (and later coal) was fed into 16 giant boilers to produce the steam required to turn the Curtis Steam Turbines in the room next door.

The Georgetown Steam Plant was built in 1906 to provide power for Seattle's streetcars, the city of Georgetown, and the Seattle-Tacoma Railway.

Seattle Electric Company branding can still be found on some of the large boilers at this 1906 power plant. The boilers produced enough steam to turn three Curtis Steam Turbines located in the adjacent room, generating up to 21K kilowatts.

Fun finds and photo ops at the GT Trailer Park Mall! Perfect to hit up after weekend brunch. I always order burrata cheese when it's on the menu, and Bar del Corso does a wonderful job by combining it with heirloom tomatoes, sexy sea salt, cracked pepper and EVOO. Their braised pork shoulder was also a winner. We sat at the bar and enjoyed watching the grill cook work his butt off preparing dishes - it was like a one-man version of Dinner Impossible! Succulent, savory chile verde at Slim's. Smoky fire-roasted tomatillos pair with rich pulled pork. This chili is an entree in itself.
Get the big size. You'll need it. Once a drunken casual contest, the Race has exploded into a high-octane citywide championship. Will the belt sander tear up the track faster than the buzz saw? THE WORLD MUST KNOW. Circus kids show off their SANCA skills! Damn fine brunch in Georgetown. This diner delivers great service and top-quality scratch-made dishes: biscuits and sausage gravy, fluffy enormous pancakes, and of course steak, eggs and hash browns.
Also recommended for people-watching: Hudson's location on Highway 99 means you'll see out-of-towners with grandparent sensibilities rub elbows with Georgetown's unique artist/biker/swordfighter aesthetic. A friend turned me on to this vietnamese lunch place today. Chargrilled pork, shrimp with rice noodles. Flavor! And refreshingly light. Ready to conquer the afternoon. Great little soup stand, perfect for weekday lunches. They have rotating soups, and they publish their calendar online: http://lectssoupstop.com. Had the pork posole today and it was fantastic. Open weekdays 10-3. No seating, but they have a couple of small stand-up counters. This vicious vehicle is named the Restored cockpit of Boeing's first 727. Notice the third seat, for the flight engineer - a position which todays more automated planes no longer require. Back in the day, the flight engineer was responsible for much of the plane's mechanical operation, including engines, fuel, electronics, hydraulics, lights, HVAC and more. It was considered an entry level position before you could graduate to first officer or pilot. Pleased to see this beautiful building finally be completed. Impressive design don't you think? I love the color panels and the red art poles make me want to stop and forget I'm commuting to work. #TroverContest These control panels monitored the Curtis Steam Turbines installed in 1906 and 1907. Although the turbines were state-of-the art for their time, the technology was advancing so quickly that the plant became outdated within a decade.

The plane was retired in 1991, so it was easier to restore what was there rather than conjuring up some 1960's era interior. Over the course of service, this plane ferried more than 3 million passengers and generated more than $300 million in revenue for United - a pretty good return on the $4.4 million purchase price. Hudson's - great 21 and up joint for breakfast and lunch Update: Smash Putt is currently closed. (They are seasonal.) Epic big-kid-themed mini golf. Plus an open bar. Equals win. The way you start your morning can affect your whole day. You won't find ashtrays on too many flights these days! This 1980's era 727 interior was a hoot to check out. It's hard to imagine, but some 48,000 passengers sat in each of these seats. Well, not these particular seats - I wonder how long a typical airline seat lasts before it needs to be replaced? The new and improved Rainier Flying high at the Trover holiday trapeze party! Fun place. Intense! I might've found my favorite spot to watch the sunrise in Seattle. This was taken in Seattle while wildfire smoke polluted our skies. The final flight of the first Boeing 727. This plane first flew as a prototype in 1963 before being delivered to United Airlines, who flew it over 48,000 times until retiring it in 1991. A few weeks ago, after 25 years of restoration, the plane made it's final flight from Everett to Boeing Field, where it will be on permanent display at the Museum of Flight.
For its final 15-minute flight numerous safety precautions were employed, including a low flight path, keeping the landing gear down, and deploying the wing flaps. I suppose the less monkeying around you do, they less likely things are to go wrong. Get your very own (tiny, plastic) Appropriate that the Hat and Boots is now a playground. South Lake Washington - Seward Park Neighborhood This is what Trover all about: wandering around in a strange neighborhood looking for a quick bite, and I stumble across this little gem. Very cool, old building in Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood with great beers, a full bar and killer sandwiches. I had the Italian, but have my eye on the Cuban for my next visit. Great spot. The Wrap of Khan - Fajita seasoned strips of Field Roast with grilled onions, red peppers, Roma tomatoes, pepper jack cheese and Chipotle aioli. The tastiest veggie lunch ever.
If that doesn't do it for you, then maybe the R2-PITA-2, Obi-Won-Ton Plate, Darth Reuben or Picard might suit. While you wait, play vintage video games on their Atari 2600 and Super Nintendo. Fun place! The best Ethiopian food in Seattle can be found at this little hole-in-the-wall. The neighborhood might be a bit sketch, but don't let that detail put you off. From the moment you walk in, Titi (the owner/hostess/chef) will ensure you have a wonderful meal. The injera is made fresh daily, and if you don't know what to put on it, Titi will make some recommendations.
105 reviews and 4.5 stars on Yelp simply confirm what I've already told you. This 4th of July!!! 🗽🗽🗽🗽🗽🗽🗽🗽🗽 Medieval village? Nope, just a really cool and huge playground across the street from Westwood Village and next to a wetlands area with trails. Two swingsets, sandbox and slides galore, plus yards of grass and picnic tables. Cynar Spritz at Bar del Corso is a little bitter a little sweet and a lot buono. Prosecco and Cynar, evidently from artichokes. Lively Italian pizza, polpino, polpette, burrata, and cozze joint. 32 lanes of family fun. Great condition, friendly staff, worthy bloody marys. #kidsfun Seasonal Pumpkin Pie waffle. Topped with pumpkin butter, cinnamon, graham crackers and whipped cream. Yum! Delicious cask style brews in an historic locale. On this day there was a band, food truck and sunshine: good times. I've found the meat slicer for my future man-kitchen! You can catch this smooth spinning vintage style meat slicer in action at Bar del Corso: prosciutto and melon, anyone? If you're in the market, and have five grand to spare, this is the Sirman Slicer Anniversario, direct from Italy. Pearls is a great little crepe house run by a Vietnamese family, so expect some fun twists on your traditional coffee shop treats! I prefer the Yum! I love the pizza and other Italian delights here. Great cocktails too. Tremendous sandwiches in friendly dive bar setting. Order a A true gem in Columbia City located right off of Rainier ave on Edmunds st. Once you walk inside, the warm and laid back atmosphere transports you out of the busy area in Columbia City. Known for a generous variety of waffles, along with delicious panini sandwiches and espresso, this is not a spot to miss. There is also a back patio seating area, which is very pleasant for enjoying a nice lunch! (see other discovery for food pics) ^^ Tully's/ Old Rainier Brewery Best videogame ever. Love how creative people are! Food, ambiance do not disappoint. We love Via in Queen Anne and bumped into this branch down here in Georgetown. Has a really festive looking party room. This resto has the rustic Via style, an outdoor space and yummy neopolitan style pizza and calzones. I sat outside in my car in the pouring rain for about 5mn in what is clearly the ghetto of West Seattle- unsure if they were even open. The windows were dark- no one visible from the street - only sign of life was the blinking Open sign. I walked into a bustling atmosphere- with bright covered tables and the friendliest down to earth waitress sporting some punk style!
The menu was creative and different offering shrimp and grits and claiming the best hollandaise sauce around. I was blown away!! This place had the best food I've had in forever. Sold. Everyone needs to come here!! Great spot in Sodo! Skee ball, pinball and great drinks. Really cool vibe in an up and coming neighborhood. #neighborhoodgem #divebars #seattle #sodo This place has tons of character. Pizza is good and traditional. Great brew selection, and old pinball games for the kids. There are breakfast burritos, and then there is this AM behemoth at Smarty Pants: El Tigre! Incredibly good, served fast and really hot (to the last bite), by very friendly, attentive servers. This place is a bar by law, and as such does not allow minors, so if w/out kids probably a better option than nearby neighborhood faves Hangar Cafe and Square Knot. I'm going back to try the amazing looking sandwiches! The newly opened Simonyi Space Gallery at the Museum of Flight has a robonaut. In a few months there will also be a trainer, a Souyz capsule and a space toilet!! Mt. Baker Rowing and Sailing Center is located on Lake Washington at Stan Sayres Park, about midway between Seward Park and the I-90 floating bridge in south east Seattle...oh yea and it snowed good today. Thick, crunchy, salty, satisfying. The tortilla chips at La Catrina are the best I've ever had. Made in-house from their hand-pressed tortillas and served with smoky fire-roasted salsa, they will rock your world. Experience Seattle from an unique perspective of a helicopter. #seattle #helicopter Great views of Mt Rainier from Seward Park. #SpringFun #lifeatexpedia #Green #TheGreatOutdoors #TakeAHike Awesome boutique brewery with uniquely flavored beers. Open & for tastings Friday afternoon. Totally blown glass and affordable art... Totally cool. Follow Dehanna all over the US at her shows, or get
lucky and catch her working hands on in the shop Best Ethiopian food in Seattle? In any case, you must eat here before making up your mind. The doro tibs (chicken sautéed in spices) were incredible and the vegetable sampler added variety. Paired with a truly authentic teff-based injera, this was the best meal we've had in many months. Love the new, bigger location for our favorite breakfast joint! Fresh beignets with homemade jam and the best hash browns in town with homemade ketchup. White Center is the place to be! New restaurant in the hood!! Same owners as Jules Mae's but kid friendly--just plain friendly! Comfortable space, delicious food, good beer, nice people. We will be here often! Emerald City Sunset from Beacon Hill. Fantastic homemade ice cream and hand-rolled cones. Only available from the truck, which makes the rounds in Seattle. The current plan is to set up shop at Starbucks HQ on Fridays this summer. The president's communication chair aboard the first Air Force One. This modified 707-120 was built in 1959 and served Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon. Beer, food, and fun. Love that they use Painted Hills beef. The A good Italian friend/chef told me about this place and I'm glad he did. S Italian fare, much of which is cooked in a beautiful wood fired oven. Great and festive, open atmosphere, and very reasonably priced. Loved the pizzas, roasted artichokes, sausage/peppers and polenta cake. One of my new favorites. Absolutely delicious food truck! Tacos for $1.10/each, or this delicious toasted torta (a Mexican sandwich...this one had plenty of fantastic fresh jalapeños and avocado) - everything available with house-made green and red hot sauce.
The people here take care in the food they prepare, and the regulars and newbies don't mind the wait that can take 10 minutes with a line. You don't know cozy in Georgetown until you've sucked down this tasty Mexican food under the little tent they always have set up, with the rain pouring on the roof and you can feel fire in your belly from homemade hot sauce. They also have great horchata! Gorgeous day at the Beach Coconut Pumpkin Fish Chowder with smoked trout, halibut, kabocha squash, and coconut lemongrass broth! #soup #seafood #foodporn #delicious Ok it's kinda like my first post about food but I'm really compelled to share...y'all meet katsu burger staff, KB staff meet y'all...a katsu styled burger, nori fries, and chicken bites with Japanese mayo or wasabi mayo mixed with katsu sauce = hurry up and go visit these awesome folks on 4th and Michigan...in Georgetown. You'll thank me. Now go!!! Pub-like atmosphere with incredible veggie dishes (and I'm a carnivore). I never would have guessed that my lentil-sage Field Roast Lake Washington - Seward Park Hangin in the yard, hidden graffiti mural in the old rainier brewery and current tully's building. The building recently started an arts walk in conjunction with the Georgetown one. Large Mexican sandwiches (tortas) available outside Starbucks HQ on Fridays this summer. If you haven't eaten for a few days order the Barrigona - breaded steak, chorizo, pork leg, sausage and cheese. I decided to go with waffle #7, which had nutella, banana, whipped cream, and toasted almonds. The waffle is a decent size that can easily be shared by two. Served fresh and hot, these waffles are light, sweet, and fluffy! And grilled panini #4 has turkey, ham, pesto-peppers, feta, and provolone. I could smell the sandwich before it arrived at my table and the thin panini bread has an aroma that is simply amazing. And the pesto-peppers add great flavor, and they all blend together to make purely delicious meal. And of course the espresso is well up to par. Empire Espresso features a different single origin espresso every week, and have a pour over bar and French Press for drip. So it's fresh coffee in every cup! #sunset #treetrove One of the $3 happy hour pizzas. Awesome! Need a stair car? Can't reach your plane door? Boeing may be able to help if theses guys don't jump the fence. It's nice to see fences and trees getting along so well. Katsu Curry Burger
(pork cutlet, American, curry mayonnaise, and tonkatsu sauce)
+ Curry Fries
This place is known for its crepes, but their waffles are also excellent. I'd recommend the Banana Nutella Belgian Waffles. So good! This is a wonderful little urban community farm in the South Park neighborhood! Volunteers grow 22,000 pounds of food every year that gets donated to food banks and meal programs. Stop by with your kids or just you and they'll give you a task and let you raid their raspberry bushes! Pretty sweet event space! Love the rooftop. (#Starbucks HQ and #downtown #Seattle in the background.) Great selection of ginger beer. Rachel's is a local small-batch brew. Another great choice for cocktails is AJ Stephans. Saturday night My 6 year old kid took a week of circus camp here. Tightrope, balancing plates, trampoline stunts. He loved it. Cherry tomatoes, feta & mozzarella on a pesto base...I wish it wasn't a special because it was delicious! My favorite pizza place, for the food, the service and the kids' area. Love it! A nice Japanese restaurant in Georgetown, somewhat overlooked in their strip mall next to Starbucks. Friendly and eager service, good sushi, free tea with dinner, super kid friendly. (A little girl near us saw a pile of bananas behind the counter and asked for one. She got it.) Delicious burgers and shakes at their relatively new (and larger) White Center location. Bonus: Cool burger memorabilia. This is the most convenient soup in Georgetown! I always go here at lunchtime when I have my puppy at work with me and we play in the nearby grassy area until our order is ready.
They post the soup menu on their website http://www.lectssoupstop.com/ and sell delicious toasty sandwiches too...and your sandwich will unquestioningly come with a small bag of cookies. They are very sweet (the people, not just the cookies) and the whole place is in a cute old train-switching station.
To top it off, Lect stands for Life Enhancement Charitable Trust; they assist local charities and provide dentures/glasses/hearing aids to those who would otherwise have to do without. Awesome place to take the kiddos for open gym time, even without a membership. Facility includes a foam block pit to swing into, a zip line and lots of space to run off that energy during our looong Seattle winters. They also have classes for kids of all ages.
