Record Shop
$$
“Easy Street Records is an independent record store located in Seattle, Washington. Easy Street opened its store in West Seattle in 1988, and later added a cafe/bar, which serves coffee, breakfast, lunch and beer & wine. Easy Street Records often hosts live in-store performances by national and local musicians. Our store carries new and used CDs, vinyl records, DVDs/BluRays, new books, magazines and company-branded merchandise. Our History Owner/President Matt Vaughan worked at two different record stores during his teen years. In 1987, with both stores ready to go out of business simultaneously, Vaughan approached both owners and offered to consolidate the two stores into one. Vaughan opened Easy Street Records in the business district of West Seattle (known as "The Junction") in 1988 and the following year moved the store down the street to its current location on the primary corner of the Junction in the historic Hamm Building. In 1999, he leased the space next door, installed a new kitchen and bar, and by 2001 had opened a full-service cafe. The following year he opened a second, much larger store in the Queen Anne neighborhood, which thrived for 11 years until its closure in 2013. ”

Fish Market
“From their website: The Saloon is rustic and outdoor, so bring your coat, and come experience oysters in the elements. In the winter you can watch storms blow down the canal and listen to sea lions bark in the estuary. In the summer, the saloon offers an excellent view of the tide rolling off the oyster beds. We also have live music from 1 to 4 on most weekends (and some Mondays) during the summer. Distance From the cabin: 13 minutes south ”
