A vibrant textile exhibition dazzles at the Seattle Asian Art Museum.

A self-deprecating comedian brings the laughs to a Kirkland comedy club.
After a recent phone interview with Andy Kindler, my cheeks hurt. Having conducted dozens of interviews, I know these things can easily go either way. Thankfully, this chat was an especially pleasant (and funny) one.
