1st - Tim McGraw and Faith Hill with my parents. It was the first ever event at Nationwide Arena in 2000 and the screws on the seats were faulty. Every 5 or so minutes you'd see someone's seat come loose and fall to the ground. 

Most recent - Father John Misty at Palace Theatre

Favorite - Twin Peaks at Chop Suey in Seattle (2016)

  • Coastal Kitchen is a good spot for a nice dinner
  • Volunteer Park is just up the road from Coastal Kitchen and has an awesome old water tower that offers some great views of Seattle and the surrounding area (and it's free)
  • Lake 22 is my favorite hike near Seattle (takes about an hour and 30 minutes to get there by car)
  • Ballard is a great neighborhood with some awesome breweries (Peddler, Reuben's, Stoup)
  • Georgetown Brewing is just south of downtown and they do free tastings 
  • Golden Gardens is an awesome beach / park with amazing views. Make sure to stop at Un Bien on the way and pick up a Caribbean Roast sandwich
  • Take the water taxi from downtown to West Seattle. It's a short 15 minute ride on the water and offers some amazing views of the skyline 

Enjoy! I recently moved back to Columbus but after writing this list I'm thinking about moving back already.

Go for dinner here after the game... 

Short cab ride from Wrigleyville and it's great. Get the pizza pot pie and a Great American Salad.

It's a cash only joint. Won't regret it!

Heading to Santa Barbara, CA to visit my girlfriend. She just moved there a few months ago from Seattle. I've never been. Any recommendations?

Found the coverage map. If anyone is interested, you can view it here.

Looks like I get to watch from the comfort of my couch.

Anyone know where to find a coverage map for ABC? The OSU game and Nebraska v. Miami are on at the same time and both are on ABC or ESPN 2. I live in Seattle and don't get ESPN at my place so I'd have to head down to the pub (damn) to watch the game. I'm assuming Nebraska v. Miami will be on ABC in my area.

It's never too early to start planning! I booked a flight home 3 months ago to Columbus for Labor Day weekend. Surprising my dad for his 60th birthday. Can't wait to watch the game with my family and eat all of the Benny's pizza. (If you've never been to Benny's in Marysville, it's WORTH THE DRIVE from Columbus.) Sticking around that following week and taking my girlfriend to her first Buckeye game against the Rainbow Warriors.

Watched the show last night... all 6 episodes. Hilarious! Thanks for the recommendation. Hopefully they do a second season.

Dustin Johnson or Bubba Watson. Longest course in US Open history I believe, so I'll take the power hitters. Gotta like Spieth as well because of his consistency and caddy. 

Also... PNW is the BEST!

Restaurants I'd recommend... Coastal Kitchen, Skillet Diner, Lost Lake Cafe. All of those are located in Capitol Hill.

Beer/Whiskey... Radiator Whiskey by Pikes Market and Chucks Hop Shop in the Central District. Chucks has over 100 different beers on tap. 

The Seattle waterfront is currently under construction and is a mess so I wouldn't really recommend going down there for anything other than Pikes Market. If you go into Beecher's cheese at the market they usually have free cheese samples in the back. AMAZING stuff! 

Would also recommend visiting Volunteer Park. There's an old water tower in the park that you can go to the top of and get a great 360 view of the city and it's FREE.

Fremont and Ballard also have a lot to offer.

Enjoy your trip!

I wouldn't really say there is one specific street but Capitol Hill's Pike/Pine corridor has a TON of bars/restaurants/music venues.

Did you guys hear the one about the corduroy pillow?... It was making headlines everywhere
