I'm new to Seattle and about to celebrate a milestone-ish birthday after a super hectic year - help me figure out how to plan an amazing day!

In the last year, I divorced, left a job of many years, took an extended road trip from one side of the country to another, started a new job, and finally, settled in a new city after many months of travel. I'll be turning 35 in a few short days and really want to enjoy the hell out of my special day. So, for those of you with more Seattle experience than me, help?
A few details:
My birthday takes place over the Labor Day weekend, so there's an option of an overnight trip.
I'm a foodie and for sure want the day to include an amazing meal; bonus points if I can have multiple great meals.
I enjoy live music, hiking, most outdoor activities, and also being pampered...
I have a boyfriend who I'm sure will take the initiative to plan something without my input, but I'd kind of like to have some suggestions to throw out but am just so new to the city that I'm at a loss. He's very sweet and would for sure go along with anything I suggest.
Money isn't really an issue (within some measure of reason).
Going to Canada (i.e. Vancouver or Vancouver Island) is not an option as we'll be doing that in a couple weeks, anyway.
I'm excited, not freaked out, by the idea of turning 35.
Thanks in advance!
