We curated the best events happening in Seattle this spring.

I’m writing this Weekend Wandering post from San Francisco, where I’ve been gorging myself with delicious food and drinks. It’s been go-go-go and I’m utterly exhausted. So though I love traveling, I’ve been counting down the hours until I get back to Seattle.

I’m beyond excited that this weekend has a lot of fun events…almost like Seattle is welcoming me back home. In preparation for the May event calendar dropping in your inbox on Friday, I rounded up four Seattle events that I’m super excited about.

Grilled Hama Hama oysters with cilantro-curry butter and miso buter for dipping. We created this quick recipe after foraging for oysters and clams in Washington!

My family and I visited the Hama Hama oyster farm in Lilliwaup, Washington for one of their Farm Day events a few weeks ago. For a few weekends out of the year, they open up their beaches for oyster and clam foraging. It’s an amazing deal because 1) you don’t need a license, 2) the clams and oysters are cheaper than you’d ever get in the store, and 3) you’re making memories foraging for your own food.

We ended up taking 90 pounds of oysters home that weekend. I created this easy oyster recipe to let the big, meatier oysters shine. They’re grilled and served with cilantro-curry and miso butters for dipping. Read on for the recipe and a look at what it was like foraging for Hama Hama oysters.

The 100% natural limoncello and vodka from Seattle-based Letterpress Distilling is unlike you've ever had. They're using sustainable distilling practices to create liqueurs that you can feel good about and that taste amazing. We sat down with owner Skip Tornetti to find out how they do it.

You know that feeling when you have a revelatory culinary experience?

That happened to me when I tried the limoncello from a small distillery in Seattle that makes a limited-selection of spirits and Italian liqueurs using mostly locally-sourced raw ingredients. It’s subtly sweet and doesn’t have that typical burn on the way down. I would go as far to say that it should win an award for the best limoncello ever, but let’s just say it’s definitely the best in the Pacific Northwest.

I sat down with the owner and his partner to learn how they make such damn good spirits and what fuels their commitment to sustainable distilling.

Shopping and sipping events in Seattle this weekend, April 15-17.

April is proving to be super busy. I explored Victoria the first weekend of April, went to Hamma Hamma Oysters farm day and the Mariner’s Game this past weekend, and will be in San Francisco next weekend.

But that doesn’t stop me from fitting in some awesome events happening right here this weekend. And I’m super excited it will include mellow activities like craft fairs and, you know, vodka. Just what I need for a relaxing weekend to recharge while I’m still in Seattle. 🙂

This bauble statement necklace adds a ton of texture interest to the marled sweater, plaid collard shirt, and leather jacket.

I took a quick trip to Victoria, B.C. the weekend before last and I needed some comfy travel style to get me through the trip. We left at 8 am on Saturday and started sightseeing immediately upon arrival. Since we were sitting for about three hours, I needed something that would let me relax but also wouldn’t make me look like a total slob when we landed.

This is the look I decided on: a lot of lounge with a little bit of class.
