With authentic Thai woodcarvings and other decorations, this is Jae's and my favorite local Thai eatery. The staff is friendly, the food is good, and prices are reasonable.

We like this dive bar! I had the BEST bar hamburger and fries here recently. And they also have karaoke on Sundays which is popular with lesbian customers, hosted by DJ Sparkle. Very funky décor. We're afraid it may fall victim to gentrification soon.

Parks & Nature
This beautiful park right on the Lake Washington Ship Canal in Ballard is great for picnics. Watch ships sail through the locks, and view salmon swimming upstream to spawn. Also, on the other side of the canal, in season you can see a very large blue heron rookery.

On sunny weekends and holidays, this little beach will be packed out with folks from babies to old people and all ages in between. Popular spot for beach volleyball. Or you can swim in the Puget Sound, fly a kite, or kick a soccer ball around on the big lawn near the beach. At night you can have a fire in designated fire pits. On clear days, you'll get fantastic views of the Olympic Mountains across the Sound to the west. I walk to this park all the time from The Loyal Westie: down the steep bluff and back home again is 1 hour round trip, a great, aerobic workout.

Entertainment & Activities
Ballard's own first-run cinema, there's been a movie theater on this site continuously since 1914! A few years ago, a member of the Alhadeff family bought it, tore down the bedraggled old building and built a nautically-themed, 3-screen theater, complete with brass fixtures, port-hole window, and ship-style mahogany trim. I go here first, any time they're playing what I want to see.
