SEAReview

Your camping trip got cancelled - turns out that trying to pitch a tent in the pouring rain is wildly counterproductive. Once you’ve dried off, head to The Noble Fir, a bar that feels a lot like a cabin hideaway in the mountains. A cabin hideaway with string lights, beer, wine, delicious charcuterie and cheese plates, and a library area full of old books, that is. Not to mention a bathroom, which is more than we can say for that campsite your friends picked out.

Ballard Annex Oyster House

Ballard Annex Oyster house has good happy hour vibes, but not great food. You can find better oysters elsewhere.

Gracia

Gracia is a cute, but pricier Mexican spot you should hit up during happy hour. The $4 tacos are very much worth the early dinner.
