It has been quite an unusual week with an unprecedented 20″ of snow. Sure when traveling to the grocery store the milk and break shelves were EMPTY, no joke. Totally bare shelves. Well for someone that did not prep well enough for my own dinner I decided to look to see who was open in my neighborhood on California street. I was surprised to see several local business open along California and most were full, we did not let 22 inches of snow stop us from getting out. I was happy to see Talarico’s Pizzeria was open, my most beloved pizza place in West Seattle.
I tried a new slice, the OGLIO D’ AVIO (Goat cheese, garlic, arugula, mozzarella and marinara), and my boyfriend had his usual slice of KAUAI (Prosciutto, pineapple, mozzarella and marinara). It was delicious, there has never been a slice I haven’t loved. The wait staff is friendly, and go out of their way to make you feel welcomed, they even box up your to go for you in the cutest little packaging. All in all it was a nice to get out of the house since suffering from cabin fever to eat a great hot meal, PIZZA. It is also great to know that snow does not stop local business from serving their amazing recipes to us Seattlights. If you don’t know what a seattlight is please ask us and let us loop you in.

Snow Day February
It is another beautiful day in Sunny Seattle today, however you would not have known it by the snow the last few days. It is rare but a real treat when it snows here, however it usually only lasts for a few days and melts off by the end of the week, leaving memories of fun times and sounds of crushing boots in fresh snow. Now that the snow is melting and we are increasing seeing spring popping everywhere, from the trees growing back and bulbs coming up to bloom.

Park Hours 6 a.m.-11:30 p.m.
Summer days in Seattle bring locals and visitors alike to Alki Beach Park, a long stretch of beach that runs from Alki Point to Duwamish Head on Elliott Bay. Walking, jogging, rollerblading, volleyball, beachcombing and bicycling any time of year is superb, and in summer it’s a great place to beat the heat. Picnic tables, restrooms and plenty of parking is available.
Speaking of Picnic tables, stop by Husky Deli for the local’s favorite Ruben on Rye and other delights to pack into your picnic basket. Whatever your sandwich pleasure, the Husky Deli will be sure to accommodate you. The deli is rich in local history and the homemade ice cream isn’t to be missed.
Once at Alki Beach Park, set back and take in the spectacular views of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains, marine traffic, and perhaps most fun of all – people watching!
