3. Play a Brand New Board Game

Storyville Games (spearheaded by Storyville Coffee) recently introduced irk!, a new four-player strategy game consisting of marbles, dice and a beautiful oak playing board.

4. Savor Some Scrumptious Soup

Check out Pear Delicatessen and Michou Deli (both on Pike Place) for delicious daily soup options. We also recommend diving into a bowl of Alaskan Razor Clam Chowder at Steelhead Diner, New England Clam Chowder at Market Grill, or Market Bisque at Pike Place Chower. Bon appetit!
