Plus: 25 great things to do around Seattle this week Receive Newsletters like this

We got you now, Amazon Spheres. 🌱Thanks for tagging #theevergrey, Gillian! (📸: @gillianpeckhamphoto)

Want to book a visit? Save the date for April 19. Not because that’s the next time you’ll be able to go, but because that’s your next chance to book a precious visitor slot, and quick.

Amazon’s announced three Saturday visits so far, and they’re all already booked. They’re saying they’ll open more reservations 30 days before each of these bimonthly open house days. So assuming that next visitor day will be Saturday, May 19 (it should be?), you’ll want to check the Spheres’ reservation site early on April 19 (click on “Book a Visit”) and get your name in there.

Ready to take on your town this week? Let’s help you make some plans…
