March is about to go out like a lamb, and we’re happily sharing exciting tidbits to enhance the transition to a promising new month.

  1. Russell Wilson is part of a brand-new fitness venture over in Bellevue, and trust us when we say you should check it out stat. In a sleek and modern space that promises to get your heart pumping and energy boosted,  TruFusion Bellevue offers more than 65 class styles and up to 240 group classes per week. Think heated and non-heated yoga, barre, pilates, bootcamp, boxing, cycle, aerial, kettlebell and battle ropes—all set to killer playlists that contribute to the venue’s infectious buzz. A pre-opening special of $30 for the first 30 days—followed by a monthly membership fee of $120—will be offered up until 1,200 members join. (Following opening, memberships start at $179 per month.) Hop to it, and get ready to sweat!

2) Got weekend plans? The 5th Avenue Theatre is extending a special discount (for this Saturday) to its brand-new musical in development—Marie, Dancing Still, a production that will likely head to Broadway next. Catch it while you can (for only $10, inclusive of fees!), by visiting and using the promo code ARTIST on seats in sections 3-6 for either the 2 p.m. or 8 p.m. performance on Saturday, March 30.
