Before we drove to Pike's Market, my mom wanted to find a building for for her friend, she wanted to take a picture. As we were driving around, I noticed the downgrade and upgrade of the city. On Saturday evening, my dad commented about hilly streets in Seattle. He asked why would someone build a city on a mountain? It made me think. Seeing the downgrade and upgrade of the buildings answered it for me. I'm sure they didn't build it for uniqueness alone.
When we arrived in the market, we went to the fifth level where most of the action happens. We made our way to the Daily Dozen, and bought a dozen of assorted, mini doughnuts. My dad bought a pesto bagel from Seattle Bagel Co, and that was pretty good. It was a nice little breakfast in Pike's Market. We wanted to grab coffee from the original Starbucks, but it was PACKED! The line was out the door, and down the street. We decided to go grab coffee from the second Starbucks ever. It felt so natural walking around Seattle with Starbucks in my hand. Coffee drinking is an art to me. As we were walking ariund, we spotted a Target right smack dab in the city, they called it City Target, and had Seattle in big letters on the inside. I am a huge Target fan, and seeing a "City" Target sparked my interest.
It was quite the place. All I saw were germs, a breeding ground for bacteria, diseases, but it is public art made by the public of Seattle, and tourists wanting to leave their mark on a great Seattle attraction made completely of gum and bricks.
We spent a fair amount of time looking for some place for us to eat. We walked a ways from Pike's Place, and we came across the Seattle Art Museum. I am in love with museums. I wanted to go to all of Seattle's museums, but sadly I don't have a thousand bucks to spend on museum passes, nor do I have the unlimited time. Some day though, I will come back to Seattle, and I will do a museum walk.
