Happy Monday, Seattle! We’re already two weeks into October and the week ahead is looking great. You can eat, drink, enjoy the great outdoors, or even just watch a good old movie if you like to keep things simple. Here are 10 of the best things to do in Seattle this week.

Try one of the best tacos in the US

Everyone has their favorite foods and we’ll guess at least a few of you are taco lovers. After all, they’re one of the tastiest bites that you can grab and often pretty quick. Washington has tons of amazing Mexican restaurants and is now being recognized as having some of the best tacos in the US.

Check out a course at UW

The University of Washington has just ranked as both one of the best schools in the world and also in the nation. And if you’re looking at university it might be looking more appealing than ever. Even more so because they have tons of free and low-cost programs that you can enroll in this fall.

Plan a fall date

Fall is probably the coziest season of the year and that means it’s a great time for dates! If you’re going to be planning some soon, we have a few ideas for you. Of course, we went ahead and made a whole list so you can pick and choose from your favorites.

Try a brand new ramen spot

Popular ramen restaurant Ooink just opened a brand new location in Fremont. They serve “traditional Japanese soup twist with Chinese MALA.” While based in tradition, it’s certainly unique, with the menu stating “spicy and numbing is the soul.” You’ll find items like gyoza, all sorts of ramen, and more.

See what’s new on Netflix

Whether you like it or not, October is coming up this weekend! Plan out your month of streaming by checking out what’s coming to a computer screen or TV near you in the new month. After all, our fall and winter forecast is looking like a lot of indoor time.
