Now, let’s make the most of this week.
15 THINGS TO DO IN SEATTLE THIS WEEK 🍞
Organize white people. This panel’s looking to connect the events in Charlottesville with our lives in Seattle and talk about ways white people can work to end white supremacy. (Columbia City)
Taste and judge ciders. It’s Washington Cider Week! Go taste a few ciders and cider cocktails from two PNW cideries, then cast your vote on who did it best. (Belltown)
Dance around the world. Grab the fam for 15 minute “mini-lessons” on dances from lots of different cultures. Don’t forget to bring a dish to share with the other dancers! (Beacon Hill)
Appreciate the makings of makers. The Seattle Mini Maker Faire is bringing together makers of all stripes on Saturday and Sunday to show off and celebrate their work at MoPOP. Then just further south in SoDo, you can do some screenprinting while shopping handmade and reclaimed goods at the Second Use Fall Fest.
Watch the Seahawks play the 49ers. It’s the first home game of the season, 12s. Alaska Airlines is hosting a pregame party, and — granted, it’ll cost you a cool $165 to sit way up high, but still — there are some tickets out there.
THAT WASN'T QUITE RIGHT 🤔
In Friday’s newsletter, we said the Las Vegas police department was asking the NFL to investigate Seahawk Michael Bennett’s claims that he was racially profiled. It was actually the union that represents the police department. And there’s been an update: the NFL rejected that request. Thanks to reader Beth Anderson for pointing out the error.
THAT’S THE LAST STRAW ♻️
Local environmental activists want us to #stopsucking on plastic straws so they don’t end up in our oceans, and they’ve got lots of upcoming events to spread the word. Thanks for the tip, Darby!
See you tomorrow. — The Evergrey
