I have been lucky enough to work in Pioneer Square for over 25+ years.
My work was surrounded by my love for jazz and blues as a bartender at the now defunct The New Orleans. I transitioned into tour guiding in 2000. I've given historic walking tours, food tours, and ghost tours in Pike Place Market.
I love meeting people from all over the world and sharing the history of Pioneer Square with them.
If you're looking for excellent coffee, I would recommend Storyville at 1st and Madison.
A great lunch spot that won't break the bank is, Mae Phim.
If I could travel back in time to a major historical event, I would love to be in the audience for opening night of Sunday in The Park with George starring, Mandy Patinkin!
