Consider the connective tissue holding a long-term marriage together: a web of understanding based on personal history—years of discussion, arguments, realizations, inside jokes, terms of endearment, intimate gestures, memories of private moments.

With picture windows overlooking Virginia Street and clean, crisp, modern lines, Shaker + Spear, the newly opened restaurant in the new Palladian Hotel, serves chef Walter Pisano’s take on seafood.

On this side of the mountains, we don’t think too much about water. Even with a dry winter and Governor Jay Inslee declaring this a drought year for the state, Seattle’s reservoirs are mostly full. Turn the tap and get all the water you want.

The spirit of the Renaissance hangs like gossamer on Tamara Codor’s art and furnishings, the legacy of time spent studying classical painting in the Loire Valley in her late teens. With business partner and furniture maker Sterling Voss, Codor creates decorative works, such as mirrors that reimagine 17th-century antiques (as seen in Bar Sajor) and painted panels.

Given the number of free outdoor music options in and around the city this month, it would be wise to keep a “go bag” at the ready—stocked with a picnic blanket, sunglasses, nonperishable snacks and a thermos full of refreshment—so you can run off to soak up sun and songs at the drop of a floppy-brimmed hat.

After securing funding on Restaurant Startup, a CNBC reality show, chefs Garrett Doherty and Shane Robinson were able to create a permanent home for their 2-year-old pop-up concept, Kraken Congee, in early spring.

For potter Mandy Shoger, home is where the hollowware is. “Incorporating something handmade into your daily routine is so special,” says Shoger, who uses stoneware clay from Washington and Oregon and hand-throws custom dinnerware in her Queen Anne studio. “I think we’ve lost that in America: using products at home created by your own community.”

Designers Andy Whitcomb and Forest Eckley are redefining the term “homemade” with their handcrafted furniture company, Brackish.

Maybe a street-level space in a boxy, newly constructed micro-apartment building isn’t the first place you’d think to go for some of the best tacos on Capitol Hill. But think again. Chávez, headed by chef Gabriel Chávez (late of Cantinetta), exceeds expectations on every level.

In medieval times, you could find the honey wine in war and wedding ceremonies alike.

Seattle often is touted for its literary bona fides. We frequently top the list of America’s “most literate” cities (we’re currently number 3, following Washington, D.C., and Minneapolis).

We’re home to a great bookstore, Elliott Bay Book Company, known nationally as a must-stop for touring authors.

Someone once wrote to me in a huff to say that you absolutely could not pick blackberries around Puget Sound in July. This was after I had posted online photographic evidence to the contrary. But she had grown up here, darn it, and knew this to be true.

Maybe it’s the promise of being airborne and getting a bird’s-eye view of forest canopies, park flora and fauna—or perhaps it’s a nod to our ever-shortening attention spans—but either way, zip lines are the thrill ride du jour, so get zooming.
