Another August Pocket Potpourri!
Here are a few things that have come to my attention lately that I wanted to be sure to share with you.
The Seattle Tattoo Expo returns August 18-20! Over 200 invite-only tattoo artists will be at Seattle Center during the expo. Enjoy live music and burlesque (including a performance by one of my favorites, Ruby Mimosa!), a beer garden, “Drawing Heads and Hands” workshop, and more. SeattleTattooExpo.com
Circus arts in action!
Don’t miss SANCA (School of Acrobatic & New Circus Arts)’s Staff Show “Summer on the Cirque Riviera” August 18-20 at Broadway Performance Hall. “Catch some rays poolside with buff babes and saucy sailors, but beware of pool sharks! Or just relax and beat the heat with a glass of wine, or perhaps something stronger at Cirkuski Kafić where you may even catch a glimpse of the Green Fairy.” Tickets here.
Enjoy the tastes of Pike Place
Pike Place Market celebrates their 110th anniversary this week and their popular “Sunset Supper” event is this Friday! Celebrate Pike Place Market’s 110th birthday with the party of the summer, Sunset Supper, featuring Seattle’s top chefs, artisan purveyors, breweries and Washington’s favorite wineries and distilleries. This delicious event benefits the Pike Place Market Foundation which supports the Pike Place Senior Center, Food Bank, and so much more. Tickets here.
