Seattle/Renaissance Hotel arrive 4pm 9/2 What to do?

Thanks again for the help with my previous question. . .Now what to do for 1 Thursday evening when we arrive. It looks like the museums, etc are closed in the evening.
Any suggestions? Got this hotel on a priceline bid is why we are at the Renaisance for 1 night before our Alaskan Cruise.

Fri morning we booked a pre-cruise tour with Tours Northwest with a drop off at the pier. We felt it would give a nice over view of the city.

Once again, thanks for the help.

You could get to Pike Place Market before it closes.

You could take the ferry to Bainbridge Island for great views of the mountains and skyline and, possibly, have dinner there at Cafe Nola or Harbour Public House (my choice). The return ride is free.

At Seattle Center, you could go to the top of the Space Needle, hang out at the International fountain, and have dinner at nearby Ten Mercer (my choice) or Peso's, before heading back to your hotel.

You could catch the Stanley Jordon Trio at Jazz Alley or Coco Montoya at The Triple Door.

You could have dinner at one of Tom Douglas' restaurants: Dahlia Lounge, Etta's, Lola's, or The Palace.

If the weather is holding up you will love the ferry ride over and back to see the skyline of the city at night. It is breathtaking!

All good ideas so far. A ferry ride over to Bainbridge and back. Up the Space Needle for the view. Dinner somewhere nice, either one of the fine downtown restaurants or maybe someplace with a view or on Lake Union? One of the jazz clubs if you're still up for more.

Alternately you could just go to Teatro Zinzanni?

That's your entertainment and evening meal all rolled into one.
