17 THINGS TO DO IN SEATTLE THIS WEEK 📚
‘Ask a Muslim.’ This community dinner that will open dialogue, answer questions, and “focus on the experiences of women who wear the hijab.” Note: Only two tickets were left when we last checked. (Bellevue)
Know your renter’s rights. Bring your questions and get the low-down on tenant laws, evictions, repairs, and all the worries on a renter’s mind. (Central District)
Hear fast talks about Seattle. Locals are giving their quick takes on questions like “What is it that makes Seattle truly unique?” and “What challenges will we define and which will define us?” It’ll be in the PechaKucha format, which means each speaker gets 20 slides for 20 seconds each. (Downtown)
Watch local films. Northwest Film Forum’s Local Sightings film festival will host artists, conversations, parties, and movies produced by filmmakers in the Northwest for the next nine days. (Capitol Hill)
Watch a literary drag show. Seattle Public Library is hosting local drag artists and comedians for performances inspired by their favorite banned books. (Capitol Hill)
Judge giant pumpkins. Oh my gourd, local pumpkin growers are bringing in their most impressive fruits (yes, pumpkins are fruits, google it) and weighing them to see who grew the heaviest. And you can sip Elysian Brewery beers while you watch. (Georgetown)
