When to Go: * Saturday and Sunday during brunch, when they serve up boxty, a pancake of potatoes and scallions popular in the north Midlands.

Where to Sit: Grab a sturdy wooden table near the towering stacked-stone fireplace, or belly up to the bar on a cherry-stained stool to admire the dozens of Irish whiskeys and scotches.

While You Wait

  • Play a game of darts.
  • Explore both levels of the cavernous pub.

Inside Tip

  • Don’t be disappointed if your favorite dish from last time isn’t available on the menu when you visit next. Both the food menu and the drink menu change regularly to incorporate fresh ingredients and to give local psychics some business.

If You Can’t Make It, Try This:

If you don’t mind forgoing the food and hopping right into the revelry, head to Conor Byrne Pub (5140 Ballard Avenue NW), an Irish-style watering hole that marries exposed brick walls, chandeliers, and live music.

Wayne and Sarah Wheller first got the inspiration for Redmond Ridge Winery from a tasting room across the Canadian border, where they repeatedly inspired themselves with glasses of Chardonnay. In the ensuing years, Wayne would look to his South African heritage for insight into crafting vintages, combining them with the flavors and resources of the Northwest. The resultant creations are now poured into glasses or over the heads of true oenophiles in the winery's downtown tasting room, where reclaimed casks act as tables and rows of obsidian bottles line the shelves.

Onlookers gasp as the graceful figure tumbles to earth in a slow-motion plunge. Her strong legs twist and spin down a billowing swath of deep-red fabric like a spider expanding its web. It is awe rather than fear, however, that draws the crowd's gasps, as the elegant descent is performed as a demonstration by one of Emerald City Trapeze Arts’ skilled instructors during a silks class. A dedication to teaching students of all ages and abilities the skills necessary to capture both the beauty and athleticism of the circus arts is the studio's main mission, upheld by a cadre of circus-grade instructors and a friendly staff.

Below the soaring ceiling of exposed old-growth beams, students leap and balance on well-maintained circus apparatuses as their instructors correct their form and ensure their safety. The staff welcomes aerial enthusiasts to experience the sky-splitting thrills of all manner of circus specialty, from the flying trapeze to acrobalance to hatha yoga performed on the top of an elephant's stiletto. Along with high-flying classes, Emerald City Trapeze Arts’ crew celebrates the circus arts via dances and parties held within the whimsical-yet-rustic venue, from merriment-packed Halloween festivities to energetic performances by staff and students.

Paranormal activities are commonplace for Market Ghost Tour founder Mercedes Yaeger. She grew up with the ghost stories of her father, who spooked locals with tales on Halloween nights in Pike Place Market. Since then, Mercedes has self-published a book, Market Ghost Stories, compiled from exhaustive research of municipal archives, newspaper accounts, and freeze-frame analysis of Scooby-Doo archives. She spins many of those yarns on excursions with Market Ghost Tour, which the Seattle Post-Intelligencer named ?one of Seattle?s best and weirdest attractions.? Mercedes and her guides lead guests on year-round exterior tours. The 75-minute Market Ghost Tour treks past the 9-acre district?s mortuaries, graveyards, and brothels as visitors hear frightening historical tales.

In 1992, restaurant owner Carlos Kainz and chef Julie Guerrero first joined forces to open a tiny West Seattle bakery and café, a spot that quickly gained traction and outgrow its modest trappings. The duo packed up the winning operation and moved on to a larger space and a larger vision, renaming their venture Dulces Bistro & Wine and crafting an ambitious menu focusing entirely on Latin-fusion cuisine for dinner. Although Guerrero traces her family heritage back to Mexico, many of her dishes, including paella valenciana and boeuf bourguignon, show strong European influences. Unadulterated Latin staples pepper the menu, such as the green chicken enchiladas that serve as a staple in Mexico City and at Sam I Am’s Cinco de Mayo parties.

The clatter of tumbling pins precipitate cheers over strikes and high scores in Roxbury Lanes & Casino’s bowling arena, and silent staring contests precede shouts of victory and wails of defeat in the venue’s daily poker tournaments. The tables feature many stripes of the classic card game, including Texas hold'em, four card, and pai gow, as well as double-deck blackjack. To refuel for further sporting, visitors retire to the built-in sports bar, where they chow down on new york strip steaks, custom burgers, and a full selection of breakfast eats in the comforting glow of flat-screen televisions and the bartender’s neon-rimmed glasses.
