Breakfast in a Record Shop


Easy Street Records is the best little record store, cafe and cocktail lounge in West Seattle and it's almost single-handedly doing its best to keep Seattle weird!

East Street is an independent record store that opened in 1988 and they're a super-favorite here at Keep Seattle Weird.  They opened a small cafe inside and then later, an upstairs "speakeasy" cocktail lounge.  They are so beloved, when West 5 Bar and Restaurant closed up the street, they gave their beloved Mai-Tai recipe to the folks at Easy Street. They have record release parties, in-store performances and it serves as a mini-townhall of sorts for local residents.


Weird Steve's Awesome and Incredible Home on Beacon Hill in Seattle

My friend Steve Bard lives on Beacon Hill and he's a pretty private guy, but a few years ago he let the crew of Antiques Road Show into his home to take a little video tour. Here it is!

Steve has worked most of his life as a Boeing engineer and just retired a few years ago. What is he doing in his spare time? Buying more stuff! There are lots of interesting artist and free things to do and people to visit in Seattle!
