The Free Book Incident

The Free Book Incident...

Olson Kundig, the amazing architecture firm that brought a fully-functioning urban mushroom farm to Pioneer Square last year has done it again, and this time I might be even more excited. Plan a lunch excursion to Pioneer Square in the next few weeks because they’ve turned their digs on Occidental Avenue into a FREE book exchange called The Free Book Incident. If you love books, you really can’t miss this. The...

Lit Crawl Seattle- Booze and Books, Together at La...

Thursday night is jam packed with free literary activities on Capitol Hill and First Hill.  It’s all part of Seattle’s [AB1] first ever Lit Crawl.  Think Capitol Hill Arts Walk meets The Hideout meets Elliot Bay Bookstore.  [AB2] It’s a literary pub-crawl, first invented by San Francisco’s Litquake Festival, is a night of literary chaos designed to bring free literature to the streets in a fun and socially...
Better than Sports: Where to Watch the Next Debate

Better than Sports: Where to Watch the Next Debate...

I was born missing the gene that gets people excited about sports. I can get behind a good tailgate or Superbowl Party, but that’s mostly because I really like chili. (In fact, if I ever find a jersey for Team Chili, I may just have to buy it.) But last week I joined some friends at a local bar to watch the first presidential debate- now THAT is a gathering I can get behind. It’s no surprise that a couple of...
Little Free Libraries Take Over Seattle With Book-y Goodness

Little Free Libraries Take Over Seattle With Book-...

Last week I got all excited because I read about the Take a Book, Leave a Book lending library in Ballard. I love books and I love free stuff, so I thought I’d share it with you, even though I thought it was just a one-off phenomenon that wasn’t particularly geographically convenient to me, or, most likely, you. (And we all know how little Seattlites like to leave their immediate neighborhood.) But evidently this...

And now we return to another favorite Yay-Today topic: books! I know you already have a crazy long library queue ready to go thanks to the “Your Next Five” program at Seattle Public Library that we told you about a couple of weeks ago, but here’s a great way to find some new reading material while you wait for your next library book to become available: the new Take a Book, Leave a Book lending library on...
Too much Wednesday: Another round-up!

Too much Wednesday: Another round-up!...

First I was going to tell you guys all about Kelly O’Briens fabulous Bingo nights happening every Wednesday. But then I got sidetracked… Photo courtesy of Laura Crowell. Because holy crap, Taylor Shellfish is having a fun hump day Shellfish-estival! Today! In Bow! It’s like all my favorite things wrapped up and ready–just for me. Curse you...
Seafair is here! Seafair is here!

Seafair is here! Seafair is here!...

When it comes to Seafair you’re either in 2 camps. The lovers or the hater who hates beyond belief so much so that you have to complain about it constantly at work, every single time a Blue Angel flies overhead during the week. I’m of the loving camp, and I’m actually kinda bummed that I’ll be camping instead of loving the airplanes fly super low over your heads. It’s all so exciting! Photo courtesy of Seafair. So...

I’ve been getting more and more into writing lately and because of this I somehow found myself searching for things around town and beyond to help me actually finish a story or two. Here are just a few of those findings that even if you aren’t a writer or story teller, you might enjoy as a listener: Photo courtesy of {ErinKphoto} aka redcargurl -Wing-It Productions has different shows going on almost every week. Since...

Your weekly SIFF: June 7-10...

Oh man, it’s the last week of SIFF. How did that happen? At least this year we’ve been blessed (errr) with totally shitty, cold, rainy weather–making watching movies inside totally worthwhile. Hope you’ve seen some good ones. If so, let us know. If not, let us know. Here are some we’ve seen. Photo courtesy of SIFF Welcome to Pine Hill: Think Precious meets the slow, yet intriguing vibe from...

Your weekly SIFF: May 31-June 6...

Here we are again, at the 3rd week and man does time fly. Pretty soon all of this will be over and we’ll go back to our regular lives not seeing movies every day and feeling sad. Let’s hold onto each other right now and embrace the time we have together, shall we? Okay, on with the movies!   Photo courtesy of SIFF Price Check: Who knew the corporate world of grocery store management would be filled with so...
