Night out for Caring 
9/21 Looking for a fun way to give back? Want to meet other people who care about doing good in the community? Shocked to hear that Washington state is 42nd in high school graduation rates (i.e., nearly last!)? Come to the biggest, best party of the year. The Seattle Mariners and United Way of King County care about kids’ education and want to see you at Night Out for Caring on Friday, Sept. 21, at Safeco Field. You’ll enjoy food, drinks, music and fun with a few thousand do-gooders who like to have a good time.

Plus explore Safeco Field like never before! #SeattlesNightOut

Karin Stevens Dance
10/11–14

Seattle Latino Film Festival

A Thousand Splendid Suns
10/5–11/10
“I wanted to get beneath that kind of iconic picture of a woman in a burka walking on the street,” said The Kite Runner author Khaled Hosseini in the years right after 9/11, which led to this 2007 novel, the story of two Afghanistan women of different classes and generations whose friendship grows as the Taliban rises in power. Here, it is adapted for the stage by Irish-Indian playwright Ursula Rani Sarma. Times and prices vary. Seattle Repertory Theatre, Seattle Center, 155 Mercer St.; 206.443.2222

Ampersand Live
10/25
Land conservancy organization Forterra is sponsoring a night of readings, music, photography and dance—sort of a stage-show version of its periodical Ampersand, or, as the nonprofit puts it, “an evening of storytelling….about nature, cities, community and critters.” Brass quartet The Westerlies, dance artist Zoe Scofield, wildlife photographer David Moskowitz and 2017 Seattle mayoral candidate Nikkita Oliver are among those scheduled to appear. 7:30 p.m. $15. The Moore Theatre, downtown, 1932 Second Ave.; 206.682.1414


Earshot Jazz Festival

Earshot sponsors performances year around, but it really piles it on for a month every autumn. Once again, organizers have planned more than 60 concerts, featuring several dozen solo musicians and ensembles, from acclaimed high school bands to free improvisers. For this iteration, there’s a special focus on women in jazz (including award-winning jazz violinist Regina Carter, Seattle composer Dawn Clement and R&B hip-hop guru SassyBlack) and on this year’s festival resident artist, pianist Jovino Santos Neto. Times, prices and venues vary. earshot.org

Urban Unveiled 
10/7/18
The annual Urban Unveiled event, held this year at the sophisticated and storied Fairmont Olympic Hotel, is more than a wedding show; it is a celebration, a cocktail party for nearly-weds and the regions most creative wedding vendors, ready to make dreams come true. This evening of elegance is a chance for brides and grooms to meet and mingle with the Urban Unveiled partners who can make nuptial visions a reality, while guests enjoy fine wines, nibble on sumptuous cuisine, indulge in to-die-for desserts. The evening ends with an amazing raffle and an awe-inspiring fashion show by the legendary Luly Yang. Times, prices and venues vary. Get Tickets Here.

Flat Stick Pub in South Lake Union = Beers & Mini Golf

I have been watching and waiting for Flatstick pub to open! So exciting! Seattle’s favorite putt-putt pub is opening its largest location yet in South Lake Union with the help of Atelier Drome and Adatto Construction. Located in the Vulcan Block 43 building, which also houses the Allen Institute for Brain Science, the new pub is framed by historic Ford and Pacific McKay building facades. Flatstick is known for it’s quirky and fun interiors and the new location won’t disappoint with new installations from the renowned local artist ‘henry.’ In addition to the panoply of local beer and cider that Flatstick is known for this location will be serving some elevated beer-bites.

Co-hosted by Atelier Drome and Rick Workman with WG Clark Construction, this event will include tasty local brews and bites and the project team will be onsite to discuss highlights and inspirations. This event is a hole in one!

Atelier Drome architecture + interior design is a full-service design firm based in Seattle specializing in residential, hospitality, commercial, and workplace environments. They are well known for their work around town with local bars and restaurants including Flatstick.

A SEATTLE SUMMER WEEKEND TRADITION FOR 17 YEARS

200+ WORLD-CLASS BEERS…FROM EVERYWHERE

Seattle international Beerfest is a 3-day specialty beer festival held at Seattle Center’s Fisher Lawn and Pavilion. Sample everything from classic styles (pilsners, pales, etc.) to exotic new-world hybrids (barrel-aged hoppy farmhouse sours, etc.).

Fisher Pavilion & Lawn at Seattle Center. Seattle International Beerfest is located between the Space Needle and International Fountain. It features huge indoor/outdoor spaces and very beautiful grounds. Indoor restrooms are one of many nice touches.

BYOB

BRING YOUR OWN BLANKET! We have a ton of seating. Our indoor/outdoor park seats nearly 1000, most of it shaded. In addition there’s a lush grass lawn we leave wide open for picnic-style seating. Stake out your spot with a blanket from home and kick back in style!

 

EXTREME.

Sure, but maybe extreme is the new mainstream. Just trying to do our part. Each summer Seattle International Beerfest unapologetically rolls out a gaudy selection of top rated double IPA’s, farmhouse/saisons, sours, barleywines, imperial stouts, barrel-aged strong ales, and anything else delicious yet shunned by the masses.
