This month, we’re bringing our Fair Trade condoms to Seattle, and we're pretty thrilled to hit the city of coffee and grunge. Our plan? Mix work with pleasure, and hit up some of our favorite juice joints, yoga studios, sex shops and restaurants while we're in town.
Here’s what’s on the agenda:

There’s no better way to wake up then with a steaming cup of piping hot Victrola coffee. The café doubles as a cultural hub, routinely showcasing local bands, art exhibits and movie nights. Dubbed “the living room of Capitol Hill,” we’ll be checking out this coffee shop bright and early for locally brewed beans and artisanal pastries. 411 15th Ave E.

With Power Yoga, Free Community Classes, acupuncture and an onsite spa, Urban Yoga is a one-stop-shop for full body and soul rejuvenation. We plan on following up our power posing with some serious pampering: Chaturanga, then manicure. 1900 4th Ave.

After a big night out, a veggie-packed smoothie is just what the doctor ordered. The Nourish at Thrive – a concoction of kale, spinach, celery, bananas, strawberries and almond milk – checks off the boxes for healthy and delicious. Super hungry? Opt for the above Buddha Bowl: a hearty combination of quinoa, walnuts, mushrooms, marinated kale and cashew cream. 1026 NE 65th St.
We’re big fans of this New York sex shop, so we can’t wait to hit up the West Coast sister store. Aside from boasting a huge selection of pleasure picks and couples toys, Babeland is the ultimate destination for adult sex-ed, activism nights, and creative female-focused events (like their free Blowouts & Blowjobs night.) 707 E. Pike St.

Happy hour calls for tequila at The Saint, where carne asada tacos and craft cocktails are $5 from 5-7 PM. We'll be sipping on the La Paz, a boozy, refreshing cocktail of tequila, elderflower, grapefruit and lime. 416 East Olive Way.

It wouldn't be a trip to Seattle without a visit to Bar Sajor, where delicious rustic farm-to-table food reigns. If the gorgeous white open kitchen doesn't dazzle you, you're sure to be transfixed by the beautifully-arranged plates coming out of it... and doubly impressed with the rich, Spanish-inspired flavors. 323 South Occidental Avenue.
