Feel the Cheer
The holidays are in full swing, and to capture the magic of beautiful downtown Seattle during this special time of year, we tapped local Seattle lifestyle blogger, Carolyn Yuen Marino of Hey Pretty Thing to give us her favorite merry spots within walking distance of Thompson Seattle.
First up: what are the holidays without a visit to one of the city’s biggest trees at the downtown Macy’s?! You can also catch the famous 161-foot high, 3,600 bulb Macy’s Holiday Star.
Next, get some holiday shopping done at world famous Pike Place Market: decked out with holiday festivity, a visit to the marketplace will get you locally-produced goods for all your favorite people. Don’t miss DeLaurenti, an Italian specialty food & wine shop in the market where Carolyn recommends choosing the panettone and a bottle of red as the perfect holiday a hostess gift.
Settle in with a cup of gourmet hot chocolate with homemade peppermint marshmallows at Storyville Coffee above the market and then move on to warm up at Thompson Seattle‘s Scout PNW for a cozy meal with a seasonal bend from Chef Derek and his team.
