We’re building some big things for you, Seattle. (📸: cadywsq at this weekend's BrickCon 2017)
Now let’s make some plans.
17 AWESOME THINGS TO DO IN SEATTLE THIS WEEK 📅
Attack! Go back to gym class with a few rounds of dodgeball. There are open games for grown-ups every Monday night, and they play with smaller, “no-sting” rubber dodgeballs. Thank goodness. (Northgate)
Learn about our past. The Rainier Valley Historical Society is holding popular monthly forums to dismantle racism. This month, they’re unpacking the history of racism in our state. (Columbia City)
See your future? Get a professional tarot card reading in the historic Hotel Sorrento. Can’t make it this week? No worries. They’ll be doing readings every Tuesday this month. (First Hill)
Make something beautiful. Work with a professional glassblower to make (then show off) your very own bowl, float, or paperweight. (Madrona)
Hear a scary story…about yourself. The improv gurus at Unexpected Productions are turning your memories into improvised ghost stories. “Some of the stories are scary and some are funny, and all of them will have you perched on the edge of your seat.” (Downtown)
Ask what it takes to change your mind. Four scientists teamed up with four playwrights to create short, onstage meditations on how we make decisions and change our minds — or don’t. Watch the plays, then pick apart the questions they raise. (University District)
Play a game of strategy and horror. It’s called “Betrayal at House on the Hill,” and you can pair it with good books, good drinks, and good conversation at the Lab at Ada’s. (Capitol Hill)
Pay a visit to the area’s largest indoor/outdoor haunted house. Nightmare at Beaver Lake is a three-quarter mile hike full of twists, turns, and screams. It’s OK for kids 10 years and older before 8 p.m. After 8 p.m., they turn it up. (Sammamish)

ASK THE CANDIDATES HOW THEY LEARN AS THEY GO 🗣
Our city’s changing fast, and it’s tough for anyone — even a wonky, campaign-mode politician — to have all the answers. So we’re running an experiment: What happens if we ask candidates how they learn and lead rather than just their political platforms?
We’re creating a public election board to help us find out, and today’s the last day to apply to be part of it. Interested? You don’t have to know the ins and outs of our local politics. You just need to be curious about approaching politics in a slightly different way. And P.S. (because people have been asking) — we won’t be endorsing anyone when we talk to candidates, just passing on what we learn. 👍
Not registered to vote here in November? Get on it. The deadline is today.
Have a good one, all. — The Evergrey
