Ok, I am going to Seattle for the first time this weekend and i need some quick tips to help plan a fun filled, robust weekend experience. This is my first visit, so if you could help answer some or all of these questions it would be much appreciated.

I have a 3 day plan (Fri, Sat, Sun) with Monday being open to anything. day one will be spent at pikes place/downtown shopping, day two will be spent in the international district, and day three will be spent around the space needle.

Here are my questions:
1) other than eating, what else is there to do in the international district? Shopping, shows or otherwise. my girlfriend is fluent in Mandarin so do not consider that a barrier to entry for this weekend.

2) would you recommend some shops for ladies (insert dirty response below). My GF is very much into designer good and courtier. I saw LV, Gucci, Barnys and Nordstrom. Anything else along the lines of hermes or chanel? do they have a specific area to walk around that would fulfill this need? Shoes stores and beg stores would be appreciated.

Follow-up: brick-n-brack shopping recommendations as well please.

3) I need vegetarian friendly food recommendations! India, thai, whatever! No fish either please.

4) are these three areas good to kill a day in with shopping and food or should i rethink my break down a bit? Reworded: would these three areas not have enough to fill 3 days worth or is there going to be a lot of boring walking around, could i do all three areas in one afternoon?

5) what exciting things are going on for the 4th of july!? day time and night time. any and all recommendations welcome.

Thanks!!!
** please note i will not have a car and will be staying in the heart of downtown next to Nordstroms.

I don't think you need to dedicate an entire day to the ID or the space needle. One day you might consider taking the ferry over to bainbridge island and having a nice brunch or something like that.

Cafe Nola is the usual recommendation. Also, blackbird bakery is pretty dang good if you're looking for just a nosh and a cup of coffee/espresso. Also, if you do end up at blackbird, I would suggest ordering toast - though I don' think it's actually on the menu board.

I went to some place called the pink room(I think) when I was there last. It was good food. I think it was close to the fish market. You should also do the fish market, if that already wasn't a given, but go on sunday(I think) is when they have the farmers market which is pretty big too.

^ ? The market is in full swing every day, as far as I know. It might have more vendors on the weekends, but during the week it's not like the fish guys are the only thing going.

Don't go to the space needle. Go to the 40th floor of the Columbia Tower instead. Better view, less people, costs $5 a person.
