As my friends know, I love planning ahead. Here are some fun events on my radar I thought you all might want to know about.
May 19 & 20: Very Special Episode at Jet City Improv
“Very Special Episode” is an incredibly clever improv show at Jet City Improv in the U District that has its closing weekend this Thursday and Friday, May 19 & 20. Inspired by 80s and 90s sitcom episodes that took a moment to provide us with “teachable moments,” the direction of this show is superb and the cast is incredibly talented. I know it seems like it takes a lot of effort to turn off Netflix and get off your couch, but the laughter you’ll enjoy is SO worth it, people. Also, they serve popcorn. Prepare yourself: you will probably leave the show with a crush on at least two actors. BONUS: Your ticket purchase goes to support some seriously incredible youth outreach programs. (Insert “The More You Know” music).
May 27-29: Northwest Folklife Festival at Seattle Center
