Are you ready for festival season yet?
This weekend there’s a bevy, from Taste Washington, featuring seminars for the foodie Saturday at Bell Harbor International Conference Center and the grand tasting event Sunday at Qwest Field Event Center; to the more culturally oriented (and free!) Tastes of Norway/Norwegian Heritage Day(pdf) on Saturday at Ballard’s Leif Erikson Hall, 2245 N.W. 57th St. Where else can you participate in a pickled herring taste-off?
Feel like staying a little closer to home? You can always cuddle up with your family at the Northgate Community Center for Family Fun Night, which will project the family-friendly move “Ice Age” onto the multipurpose room wall from 6:30-8:30 tonight. The community center will provide mats and popcorn; you bring blankets, pillows and you even can wear your PJs. Cost is $5 per family.
If you’re in the mood for even more bargains, Seattle Tilth will bring the leftovers from last weekend’s Early Spring Edible Plant Sale to Wallingford, behind the Good Shepherd Center, on Saturday. A to-be-heeded warning from our partner blog My Wallingford.
The sale lasts just two hours, 2-4 p.m., and prices will be discounted 40-60%. An Edible Plant Sale at bargain prices in Wallingford? Better get there early.
And The Seattle Times-recommended play “Dying City” continues its run this weekend at Seattle Public Theatre at the Bathhouse, 7312 W. Green Lake Drive N., including a post-play discussion with the cast and director after the 2 p.m. matinee Sunday. Curtain on Friday and Saturday is at 7:30 p.m., and the tickets range from $15 to $27.
What else would you recommend around the city this weekend?Tweet
