ST. LOUIS, MO — If all you know about Seattle is the Space Needle and Pike Place Market, or that it rains a lot, or that “Grey’s Anatomy” takes place here, then100 Things to Do in Seattle Before You Die (Reedy Press) is going to open up a whole new city to you. Foodies can binge on savory seafood at The Walrus and the Carpenter, swank fare at Canlis, burgers at Dick’s and a cornucopia of organic, sustainable delights at the neighborhood farmer’s market. Outdoor adventurers can take on Mount Rainier, or closer to home, trek out to the lighthouse at West Point or sail out on the Sound. Sports fans will find lots of green and blue adoration of all things Seahawks and Mariners, but they can also embrace their inner kid and play flag football and kickball as part of the Underdog Sports League. Music lovers can find bands to listen to every night, for cheap and without the hassle of ticket haggling — and they can also pay homage to Jimi Hendrix in his hometown. Others can take in the big top antics of Teatro ZinZanni, burlesque beyond boudoir aspirations and the raucous energy of Rollergirls. And if your inclination is to go indoors when it’s gloomy outside, you’re not alone, and luckily there’s plenty of options, such as the Seattle Art Museum, MOHAI, the Wing Luke, Archie McPhee and the REI flagship. Whether you’re visiting or here to stay, there’s more than 100 things to do here – but hopefully, this is just the start to that journey of discovery.
