Perfectly healthy people from coast to coast are already calling in sick for Thrillist’s Best Day of Your Life, the nation’s greatest new national holiday, and we want YOU to join their ranks. Spend all day Friday, June 21st hitting up the best restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and more that your city has to offer — as chosen by local Thrillist readers and editors.

Be on the lookout for Thrillist editors, who will be giving away complimentary high fives (and maybe some extra goodies too), and use Foursquare to check in at our #BDOYL locations for the chance to score freebies, discounts, and more!

Coffee Stop: Bauhaus Books & Coffee

301 East Pine St
Seattle, WA 98122
(206) 625-1600

Because you can’t have the Best Day of Your Life if you’re still recovering from the Best Yesterday of Your Life. Take in an espresso and their sweeping views of the Space Needle or, if you’d rather get your coffee straight from the roaster, Victrola’s a block away.

Lunch: Matt’s in the Market

94 Pike St #32
Seattle, WA 98101
(206) 467-7909

Time for a pork belly confit “bánh mì” and stunning views over Elliot Bay/Pike Place Market. If you can’t get a seat, just cruise down Post Alley to Lecosho or Von’s.

Happy Hour: La Bete

1802 Bellevue Ave
Seattle, WA 98122
(206) 329-4047

Come for the awesome happy hour, stay… for the awesome happy hour. Salt & pepper pork rinds and half off beers are, happily, just around the corner. Also killing happy hour, Poquitos back in Pike/Pine. And our Reader’s Choice, Pintxo.

722 E Pike St
Seattle, WA 98122

Send off the #BDOYL at one of Seattle’s top outdoor bars with a cold one. The sun goes down and so do several Edgarita’s at roof deck-equipped sports bar. Too rowdy? Head down pike to Terra Plata’s roof, or Frolik’s massive patio.

Head over to Thrillist to view the full itineraries.
