Seattle Experiences that make great gifts!

If you’re like most people, you still have some folks on your list who you still need holiday gifts for! Here’s a list of events that make great gifts. Some can be given before Christmas (or after Hanukkah) if your gift recipient is free to enjoy the outing with you before the 25th!

A(n Improvised) Christmas Carol (Pike Place Market)

This fun production plays through December 23. Brandon and I took my parents, brother, sister-in-law, and nieces (ages 11 & 14) to this show earlier this week and shared so many laughs. Now through Dec 23: http://bit.ly/2BFM2fd

Newsies: The Broadway Musical (Issaquah & Everett)

“The newsboys of New York . . . become unlikely heroes and stand up for what’s right in this Tony Award-winning and Grammy-nominated hit full of classic Disney magic and theatricality.” Seattle Times review here.  Issaquah through 12/31, Everett 1/5-2/4: https://villagetheatre.org/issaquah/newsies.php

Taste WA Wine Event (SODO)

One of the biggest wine and food events is offering a $21 discount on Sunday Grand Tasting tickets when you use the code 21TASTE at checkout during the month of December. http://tastewashington.org/

Two Trains Running (Seattle Center)

The Seattle Rep has been wowing theatre audiences with their artistic direction, show choices, and incredible production quality. “Two Trains Running” is their next show. “There’s a new President in the White House, and racial tensions are on the rise. No, it’s not 2017, it’s 1969. At a critical moment in the civil rights movement, Nemphis is forced to consider selling his restaurant to the city of Pittsburgh as urban planning eats away at his beloved neighborhood . . . Two Trains Running is celebrated playwright August Wilson’s portrait of a defining moment in American history. 1/12-2/11: http://bit.ly/2BHWKBR 

Puzzle Break (Capitol Hill & Belltown)

Treat your friends, family, or coworkers to an escape-the-room game by Puzzle Break! I’ve had the pleasure of playing “Escape the Midnight Carnival” and “Escape the Lost Temple” and recommend both! You can book the whole room for your group or join strangers to work together to find hidden clues and puzzles that will help you escape the room and win the game!  “You are trapped in a room.  As you look around you start to notice strange objects and messages – or are they clues? – hidden around the room.  Can you and your team solve the puzzles, find the key, and escape within one hour?” Ongoing. https://www.puzzlebreak.us/

Other events you might want to check out include events some of my clients are hosting, including:

Century Ballroom Dancing (Capitol Hill)

Get a gift certificate for a series of dance lessons or dance nights! Century Ballroom offers lessons in Swing, Salsa, Tap, Bachata, and much more. They’re also hosting a “Swingin’ Prefunk to NYE” on 12/29 with KUOW’s Amanda Wilde (Swing Years & Beyond) and a big New Year’s Eve party with Salsa and Outdancing on 12/31. centuryballroom.com

Homo for the Holidays (Capitol Hill)

This hilarious drag and burlesque show starring some of Seattle’s best is nearly sold out. If you love these genres, you’ll love this show. Now through 12/30. http://homofortheholidays.strangertickets.com/

Regardless of what events you share with your loved ones this holiday season, may your days be merry and bright! Happy holidays to all! – Keridwyn
