Expert Picks For Local Flavor

Seattle native and Louisville softball alumn Hannah Kiyohara is excited about her Cardinals playing in her hometown. She put together her expert picks for local flavor for all the Louisville fans heading to the great Northwest.

For all you dedicated Cardinal fans flying out west this weekend to my hometown of Seattle, Washington, I have narrowed down three places you must eat and three places you must see during your stay.

1. Northlake Tavern and Pizza House (660 NE Northlake Way) - This is a shout out to all you pizza lovers out there. You know who you are. This is widely regarded as the best pizza in town. It ranks up there pretty high on my list, and I've never met a pizza I didn't like.

2. Athenian Seafood Restaurant and Bar (Pike Place Market) - Located in the famous Pike Place Market I would recommend this as a fantastic breakfast place with a seafood twist. Enjoy some crab and shrimp cake benedict while over looking some amazing views of the Puget Sound. Also for all you Sleepless in Seattle fans this restaurant was used as a location in the movie. Tom Hanks ate there, therefore you should eat there.

3. Dick's Drive In (500 Queen Anne Ave. N.) - If there is one thing that you NEED to take away from any of my recommendations, it is this one. This is my favorite burger place anywhere. Get the Deluxe burger, fries and a chocolate milkshake and you will understand. There are a couple different locations around Seattle but this one is a .8 mile walk from the KeyArena where the cards are playing. You're welcome.
