Start out the morning with a trip to Vivace or Joe Bar for a coffee and then up Millionaire's Row to Volunteer Park and climb the Water Tower and Observatory. After enjoying the beautiful views, visit the Asian Art Museum and pay homage to Bruce Lee's grave.
For lunch, check out Due' Cucina for authentic but casual pasta or La Cocina Oaxaqueña for Mexican food in the Oaxacan style.
In the afternoon, audiophiles should check out the vinyl at Seattle Spin Cycle and the Jimi Hendrix statue across the street from Seattle Central College.

After a book-browse at the Elliot Bay Book Company, stroll through Cal Anderson Park and maybe take in some bowling at Garage. Then it's time to start thinking about dinner and nightlife!
Among the great eateries of Capitol Hill is Star Fusion & Bar, with consistently top marks. Just a couple of doorways to the south is another favorite, Herb & Bitter.
To start off the night, stop by Bait Shop. If a classic dive bar is what you're in the mood for, the Comet and Linda's Tavern should be on your map. Two other recommendable nightspots are Tavern Law and Rose Temple Bar.
