Truly awesome independent bookstore. Serving Olympia bookies for 25 years. Check out their "staff picks" shelf--always stimulating. Cats prowl the dusty stacks. 1000 times funner than buying a book from Amazon.

This is, to us, THE ambience in Olympia. Only open Thursdays Fridays and Saturdays from 6pm-2am, Sizizis is a magical hideaway and otherworldly sanctuary. If you are staying with us on one of these weekend nights, go. Bring a sweetheart, bring a notebook; it's like being in the shining dark hull of an old plankwood schooner, plus a bartender.
