We get kind of funny this time of year.

The temp hits 70 degrees (fingers crossed!) and suddenly our car windows are down, our sunglasses are permanently affixed to our faces, and we’re always thirsty for something cold and fizzy. Must be summertime! Barbecue, ice cream, an awesome fish taco—the change in weather changes the way we eat, too, so we’ve rounded up our favorite rituals and victuals for when the weather turns warm and the sun never seems to set.

Of course, a Seattle summer isn’t complete without its classic activities—sun-soaked ferry trips, laid-back bike rides, outdoor arts and entertainment. And for those of you who think you’ve been there, done that, we’ve got ways to refresh a few standards of the summer repertoire. Got your shades on? Let’s dive into summer, food first.
