Luke Huard’s guide to Seattle for Georgia State fans

Luke Huard grew up 25 miles from Seattle, where Georgia State will play Washington at 6 p.m. Saturday.

He offered this Rick Steves-like take on what do in the Emerald City, if are you are going to the game:

If you’re hungry:

Dick’s Drive-In: A burger place that’s outstanding.

Ivar’s: If you don’t want to spend $150. It’s kind of fast-food seafood. They’ve got the best clam chowder.

Varlamos Pizzeria:  They have the biggest, best calzone. You can get a side salad with cheese, ranch and black olives, my favorite combination in the world.

Pike Place Fish Market: It’s more than just food. You have the original Starbucks. The fish market, there’s something for everybody.

Daniel’s Broiler: Best teriyaki steak skewers.

From assistant coach Tim Lappano:

Metropolitan Grill: Everything. It’s the best restaurant in Seattle. Great steaks.

El Gaucho: Best Mexican food in Seattle.



Things to do:

Lake Washington and Lake Sammamsish: Anytime you can be on Lake Washington or Lake Sammamsish, both places are phenomenal.

Alki Beach: It’s on the Puget Sound. Ton of great restaurants.

Space Needle: It’s good. It’s a little hectic down there.

EMP Museum: Go see the Jimi Hendrix exhibit (that’s my take, not Huard’s).

Stadiums: Going to a baseball game at Safeco field. Going to a Seahawks game is a given. Those two stadiums are right beside each other.

Mt Si: Coach Lappano and I used to go run there. It’s a three-hour climb up, right in foothills of Cascades.
