Jack Kelly and the boys bring their A game to Seattle for a one week production
When I heard the NEWSIES production was making a stop in Seattle, I nearly shit the bed. Arguably the only early 90s musical worth watching outside of the Disney Renaissance, this was the kitchy soundtrack of my childhood (next to Big Willie Style and Killing Me Softly of course). I’m
When Seattle city life starts feeling a little stuffy, you know it’s time to plan a weekend away from all the noise. If you’re itching to get outdoors and in need of a little change in scenery, catch a short ferry ride over to a little slice of serenity better known as Vashon Island. After 20 minutes, you’ll be docked and ready for a slow-paced weekend with all the hype of island life. Check out our suggestions below for a weekend getaway to relaxation station.
The Elders are coming for a two-week run just in time for post-holiday fun!
If you’re easily amused by crude humor and aren’t afraid of a few little light hearted cracks at the expense of the latter day saints, do NOT miss the Book of Mormon, coming to Seattle’s Paramount Theater for a two week stretch after the holidays December 29 – January 10th. South Park writers Trey Parker and Matt Stone have teamed up with Disney’s Frozen composer Robert Lopez to create the epic hilarity that is this entertaining Broadway musical. I accidentally missed this record

Last winter was disappointingly mild in the PNW, with so little snow in the mountains that ski resorts from Stevens to Snoqualmie ended up shuttering their doors far before the typical season ends. This year weather experts have predicted cooler climates, which means it’s time to grab your coat and gloves and start getting excited for winter activities. We’ve put together three of our favorite winter
Don’t miss the Tim Burton Inspired This is Halloween show at the Triple Door
My birthday is just a few days shy of the most frightening holiday all year, so naturally I overdid the haunted houses, pumpkin patches, and terrifying movies well before I hit puberty. I hate pumpkin spice lattes, and am kind of tired of seeing varying versions of disney princess costumes year after year (parents – where is the creativity? My mom got “crafty” by shoving a metallic sack around a hoola hoop, in an effort to jimmy rig a
Rain or shine, crowds piled into the Seattle Center for day 1 of Bumbershoot.
Labor Day weather is certainly always hit or miss in Seattle, and as a Bumbershoot veteran, I can tell you that the rain and drastic rise in ticket pricing (and incredibly disorganized transition to an AEG hosted event from One Reel) didn’t stop anyone from attending the festival this year. Crowds
Steve Miller’s Clan Turns Chateau Ste Michelle Into Swingtown
In 1956, a few twelve year old boys blew the roof off an SMU fraternity house, serenading the college crowd with a few Clover’s covers. Cue dozens of young ladieswishing their warm miller lite was one mint julep. One of those boys working the crowd that night had more rhythm and natural talent than half of the rock bands breaking into the industry today, and that little rock and roll legend was of
When Wicked was published back in 1995, as a young budding writer, I was curious how another author could possibly try to piggyback on arguably one of the greatest novels of all time. I would later learn the art of stories told from unusual perspectives, and the fact that a 40 year old man nailed this disliked wench’s point of view and dove into the dark depths of Oz
A Foodie Staycation to Bainbridge Island’s Restaurant Marché
If you’re looking for a reason to escape the city for a weekend, evening, or day trip with the ladies, I highly recommend jumping on the ferry and heading over to Bainbridge Island. My boyfriend and I took our dogs and Airbnb-ed it for the weekend, hopping from winery to winery, hiking and playing
Don’t Miss Stone’s Five Night Evolution of an Artist Series Across Seattle
When I was first introduced to Allen Stone’s music many years ago, I’ll admit after hearing his soothing sexy voice, I didn’t picture him looking quite like he does; a scraggly blonde mop of curls flowing down his shoulders, big bottle glasses and a wide toothy grin. Allen embodies everything I love about the PNW culture, and he’s never pretended to be anything other than himself, nor has his
