I was so fascinated by the Ballard Farmer's Market that Shannon could barely rip me (and my camera!) away. But the promise of free wine did the trick.
We walked down the street and went into a wine bar where Shannon knows a lot of people, and we sampled their wines, enjoyed interesting conversation.
If you look behind the owner, you see wooden racks holding literally thousands of wines.
As you can see, they sell thousands of wines here, but this very photogenic place was more than a wine store; it is also a very classy wine bar.
Seattle wine tasting. Doesn't this wine bar look wonderful?

Seattle is really coming into its own with regards to style. It makes me miss my hometown even more -- if that's possible!
Anyway, after the wine tasting, Shannon decided to make a fancy dinner using the produce she purchased at the Farmer's Market and the wine that she purchased at this wine bar. I'll show you a few highlights of that dinner tomorrow.
