Another delightful staycation has opened our eyes to yet more facets of this multilayered city—and this one felt especially merry and bright. Although there are enough festive wintertime happenings to fill every December day, here’s an itinerary you may choose to follow if you find yourself downtown for a short-and-sweet 24 hours.
No matter how you feel about the season ahead, these upcoming November and December weeks provide plenty of excuses to happily cozy up indoors—or to get out into that fresh PNW air—with those you love most.
Early Oscar predictions, big-screen gatherings + upcoming festival dates
We’ve now set our clocks back and are looking for inspiring ways to spend the long, dark evenings. Here are some culture bites you won’t want to miss.
The Mad Hatter & crew come together for a naughty rendition of Alice in Wonderland
Seattle’s favorite burlesque masterminds Lily Verlaine and Jasper McCann have joined forces once again for their 10th annual production of Through the Looking Glass, a re-imagination of the classic Alice in Wonderland tale, where all your favorite characters from Alice and the Mad Hatter to Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb come together to deliver a performance you won’t want to miss.
Anyone who saw the opening act for Jack Johnson and The Avett Brothers at The Gorge this summer likely walked away with an unexpected new music crush. The Stranger has called John Craigie “…the lovechild of John Prine and Mitch Hedberg with a vagabond troubadour edge,” and any concert goer who’s experienced him live can attest to the fact that the guy is talented, charming and just plain funny. If you’re wise, you’ll catch him at The Triple Door on Tuesday, December 5 (or in other PNW locales throughout December).
