Birthday at the Space Needle

Bryan surprised me on my birthday by taking me out to dinner at the SkyCity restaurant in the Space Needle. We had eaten at the restaurant once before about 5 years ago. At the time we were not even living in Seattle. We were in the area interviewing for jobs in the Pacific Northwest. A lot has changed over the past 5 years so it was a chance to not only celebrate my birthday but what we have accomplished together.

The restaurant rotates so you can admire the 360 degree view from the Space Needle. People place notes on the window so it was fun to read them as we went by.


I ordered the beef short ribs. Bryan had the chicken. We had to have dessert since it was my birthday. We split a warm apple and cranberry pie à la mode. The dishes are overpriced but the views are spectacular. We arrived before sunset so were able to watch the sun set and then admire the city lights at night.



I would definitely recommend going at least once to the SkyCity restaurant for dinner. You can’t beat the view.
