Rock Box

Date Night came around again and this time the hubby and I did Karaoke at Rock Box.  We had the time of our lives and had a blast singing for two hours to our favorite songs.  The unique part about Rock Box is they rent out private and soundproof rooms, or boxes as they're called, where you can sing your heart out.  There's a tablet with songs and you just sit on the couch and search through the database and then sing to your hearts content.  There even have waiter service to bring cocktails and snacks to you.  They are partnered with Cure, the restaurant next door which serves charcuterie and cheeses.  So along with Rock Box snacks you can order meat and cheese plates, which we did.  We loved it and hope to return soon to sing, drink and eat some more! 

Razzi's Pizzeria

My family and I dined at Razzi's Pizzeria in Greenwood recently.  We went with my cousin and her family who were visiting from out of town and her husband has Celiac, meaning he can't have any gluten or he'll get really sick.  So my cousin and I researched where to eat and Razzi's had glowing recommendations.  We ended up being impressed by not only the food but the level or care that went into making sure everything was gluten-free.  Right away, gluten-free bread with oil and vinegar were brought out along with four different menus.  Our whole table decided to eat gluten-free to avoid any cross contamination for him.  So we studied the menu specifically for that and we were happy with all the choices of food to get.  We decided on two pizzas, the four cheese and the house special.  The house special had pepperoni, Canadian bacon, green peppers, red onions, tomatoes and feta cheese.  We all enjoyed the pizza, it was different, but good.  I'd never had gluten-free p…

Woodland Park Zoo

I had family in town this weekend and the weather was warm and sunny.  So we visited the Woodland Park Zoo.  It worked out great because my sons had yet to check it out and they're finally at an age where they notice stuff.  So what if the only thing they really "noticed" was the giraffe because of its height?  It was still fun and we loved seeing their reactions.  We didn't have a lot of time, so our group of eight rushed around, glancing at our maps and looked at our favorite animals.  Our highlights were the penguins, zebras and the giraffe.  We also enjoyed the play area for the kids to run around.  They also have a nice gift shop, a carousel, and a family farm that would have been fun, if we had more time. 

Pizzeria Gabbiano

Pizza sliced and sold by the kilo!  Sign me up because I love trying new pizza styles.  If its authentic and compares to what I might find in Rome, then even better.  Pizzeria Gabbiano recently opened in Pioneer Square and I was curious to check it out.  You just point to the pizza you want and how big of a piece.  In the end I think I liked the idea better then the experience.  The pizza was just okay and not piping hot and the seating situation wasn't great for me.  I can't really get into the communal table thing.  But it was a new experience and that is important to me.  I believe Pizza Gabbiano is the first place in Seattle with this style of pizza.  It was thicker than how I like my pizza, almost like a focaccia with toppings.  We tried slices of Quatto Formaggio, Margherita, Asparagus with Goat Cheese and Meyer Lemon and one with House-made Pancetta, which I liked the best.
