    Hello my northern Bloodydecks brothers!
    My wife and I are staying a week in Seattle for a quick vacation.
    Going to arrive late tonight, and probably drive up Mount Rainier tomorrow. Monday we will do Pikes market and Tuesday a 12hr whale watching tour and 2 hr stop at Friday Harbor from pier 69 on the Victoria Clipper. Friday night will consist of getting a buzz and checking out the science center for a laser Floyd show. We are staying at the holiday inn suites about a 10 minute walk to the space needle.
    Questions for you all,
    I want fresh Washington seafood! Fresh Dungeness crab is what I'm looking for.
    Where do I find a good seafood restaurant on a budget? Shorts and flip flops nothing fancy, just good eats!
    Recommendation on a fun sports bar?
    I spent 3 summers in Marysville (38 yrs ago) when i was 10-13 years old and have wanted to go back and visit ever since.
    This is a true bucket list trip!Thanks for any tips or info!

    Tom

    X2 also a sister restaurant would be Anthony's down on the waterfront. Depending on how many cocktails you could get out of there $85.00 to 115.00 Also Arnie's down in Ballard.

    If you are driving up you could pick up seafood at Pike place or at fisherman's terminal (next to Chinook's) and go down to the locks in ballard have a picnic and watch all the bumper boats going through the locks on a holiday weekend.

    Marysville has changed a lot, if you make it up there you have Cabela's to visit.

    Good luck have a great trip.

    The surrounding Seattle area is very casual. Non of the stuffy coat and tie bull shit that I know of.

    Yup Chinook's is good.

    Elliot's on the Seattle waterfront is my choice for a seafood restaurant. Not the cheapest, but good food and good oysters.

    Pike market will sell you a cold crab cocktail that is a tasty snack.

    Enjoy the whale watching cruise, that is a really scenic route.

    When you get to Friday harbor there's a crab shack right by the dock where you can gorge.For one

    Your early for magic mushroom season if that's why you wanted to come to marysville prior to the Floyd laser show. Just kidding..... Kinda. I grew up in marysville and it was a special place and time. Unfortunately it really is bursting at the seems due to overpopulation and poor planning. Very few strawberry fields or forests anymore, mainly tract housing and box stores now. It's sad, if your fond of the memerioes you have of the area you might want to skip marysville and maybe swing through Arlington, stanwood or snohomish for lunch on main street. That's where most people that grew up there live now and these towns still have a bit of the vibe the ville had in the 80s and 90s. Marysville has three wal marts and a two casinos now.Its grown at light speed and is pretty much a shithole these days. Homeless beggars and heroin addicts everywhere, it's truly unbelievable.

    If you make it to the north end I would recommend hitting chuckanut drive for a day. Chuckanut manors Happy hour on the deck is awesome and if you go for dinner you gotta order the crab au graten. The view at sunsets crazy good. There's also Taylor's where you can drive right down to the oyster beds and buy every kind of oyster you want and crab and eat there on the beach. It's awesome. Lots of Canasians, there pretty fun. Great spot, have a great time. Sounds like that's a given wherever you end up.

    Nice call on Mt. Rainier, as it is free weekend for all National Parks.....

    You could just grab a few dungies from Pike Place and go down and eat them on the pier.....next best bet is Friday Harbor.......

    You cant beat the view from the top of Crystal Mt resort. Take the gondola to the top, and you would think you could reach out and touch it!

    Orcas across from Seattle this afternoon, between Eagle Harbor and Blakely Rock. Good luck on your whale watch.
