need suggestions for where to eat and what to do this weekend

Hi!

My sister (in her 40's) and I (in my 30's) are visitng Seattle this weekend for a MUCH needed vacation away from our families in Portland. We are tired mamas who haven't gotten the priviledge of spending time away from our husbands and kids in too long and are so excited for our trip. We are staying for three nights at the Hotel Max. We would love to eat yummy food, sip delicious drinks, take long walks, and check out cool neighborhoods. Can you recommend anything for us? We would rather not spend a fortune and aren't super fancy people, however we would love to check out some hip places that will be a treat to check out without children in tow. She is not a vegetarian, but I am. Here are some neighborhoods, I think we'll enjoy...

-Fremont
-Ballard
-Capitol Hill
-Green Lake

It's been suggested that we check out the Olympic Sculpture Garden and we will probably visit the Market.

If you're familiar with Portland, we love the neighborhoods - Mississippi, Hawthorne, Belmont, Alberta, Mt Tabor, and Montavilla and we love restaurants like Por Que No, Apizza Scholls, Sweet Hereafter, food carts, and Saphire Hotel.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

P.S. We love margaritas! A good, strong, regular margarita!
