(PS: If you know me, you won’t be surprised to know I’m going to not one but THREE Halloween parties this year. Keep the costuming going all month with Black Cat Bash on Saturday 10/21 and Century Ballroom’s Halloween Disco Dance on Friday 10/27).

Giveaway: Black Cat Bash costume dance party fundraiser on October 21

The Black Cat Bash returns October 21st for its fourth year! This incredibly fun event is a benefit for the Seattle Humane Society. NOW is your chance to get tickets (and early-bird priced tickets are available through Friday!) You can also enter to win a pair of tickets below. I suggest buying a pair of tickets, then if you win a pair you can gift or sell your tickets to friends! After all, it’s a great cause.

It’s the weekend before the main Halloween party weekend, so it gives all of us costume enthusiasts a great reason to get dressed up a few times during the month. Perfect way to add some fun (and good exercise on the dance floor) as the weather turns chilly and we find ourselves inside more. Plus, friends with kids will have a much easier time finding a sitter on October 21!

If you love pop & 80s/90s/00s/today guilty pleasures like I do, the music (by DJ Baby Van Beezly) will get you moving on the dance floor all night long. Kitty Valentine (my friend Kate) started these parties to help raise money for a great cause and to offer a fun dance experience for those of us looking for alternatives outside the electronic music scene. Shindig Events (my favorite Seattle party planner) is also a part of this event to help add special extra touches to the experience. This is Black Cat Bash’s 4th year and the second year at Studio Seven.

Want to enter to win a pair of tickets? Here’s how:

  1. RSVP “Interested” or “Going” to the Black Cat Bash Facebook event page.
  2. Post a comment and tag a friend on my Facebook giveaway post.

Giveaway! Burlesco DiVino: Wine in Rome

Lily Verlaine & Jasper McCann (the team that brings us the Burlesque Alice in Wonderland and Land of the Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker) return this month to The Triple Door with their “newest spectacle of ecdysiastic pageantry,” Burlesco DiVino: Wine In Rome, a celebration of wine, liberation, beauty, and frivolity in The Eternal City. This show features a great cast, including one of my favorite performers, The Luminous Pariah.

This show runs for five performances over three days, September 21-23, at The Triple Door. Tickets here.

Want to enter to win a pair of tickets? Here’s how:

  1. RSVP “Interested” or “Going” to the Burlesco DiVino Facebook event page.
  2. Post a comment and tag a friend on the Seattle Pockets Facebook post.

That’s it!

More about the show:

The first and only burlesque production commissioned by The Triple Door, Burlesco DiVino takes the audience on a wild trip across Rome in 1963 with American choreographer Babs Lawson and her friend, Italian musician Lanzo Travaglio. After disappointing their widowed patron Donatella Chianti with a work of avant-garde dance, Babs and Lanzo are in over their heads. With a deadline looming and Babs’ visa on the line, they search for inspiration in the streets, at a wild party, and get a morning after they’ll never forget, thanks to a lot of wine and a little advice from feminist icon Helen Gurley Brown. Will their new show be a tragic failure, or will they be able to charm the citizens of Rome to get into the act and lift Donatella out of her grief? Inspired by the great costume epics Quo Vadis and Satyricon, and the mid-century visions of Rome La Dolce Vita and Roman Holiday, this show mixes classical music, jazz, and Italian go-go rock with the traditional music of ancient Rome. Priestesses, paparazzi, Vespa-girls, fire dancers, and fashionistas all take their turn in the spotlight as the ensemble weaves belly dance, go-go, and ballet with comedy, striptease, glamour, and song! Burlesco DiVino: Wine In Rome is the intoxicating theatrical burlesque mélange that you’ve come to expect from Verlaine, McCann, and company. Join us in the Bacchanal!

Click here to enter the giveaway! 

Trailer:

About the movie: “Atomic Blonde” stars Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, and John Goodman. Oscar® winner Charlize Theron explodes into summer in Atomic Blonde, a breakneck action-thriller that follows MI6’s most lethal assassin through a ticking time bomb of a city simmering with revolution and double-crossing hives of traitors. The crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.

Giveaway: Seattle Center Monorail

Before Brandon and I got hitched, we had a blast taking our engagement photos with the lovely and talented photographer Jackie Donnelly.
Brandon and I are kids-at-heart, so when we started brainstorming ideas of where we should take our engagement photos, the Pacific Science Center came to mind. We have a lot of fun memories of visiting Pacsci when our nieces were younger and the space is full of creativity and color. When we mentioned this idea to our photographer Jackie, she suggested we hop on the Seattle Center Monorail to get there (we live in Capitol Hill) and snap some fun photos on our way. Perfect!

When I lived on Queen Anne and worked downtown at The 5th Avenue Theatre, I would often take the monorail to work. The monorail offers beautiful views (ABOVE traffic, so it’s an efficient ride) and gives you such a fun “true Seattle” experience. I love to think how different this city was when it was first built in 1962 for the world’s fair. I get warm and gleeful feelings every time I ride the monorail, sometimes feeling nostalgic for a time I wasn’t even alive.
The monorail goes from downtown (Westlake Center) to the Seattle Center Armory. If you haven’t been to the Armory in a while, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the restaurants they now offer. I’ve used the Monorail to get to food and wine events at Seattle Center, to see shows at Seattle Rep, and to visit the Pacific Science Center.

Some fun facts about the Seattle Monorail:
The monorail departs each stop approximately every 10 minutes and the ride is about 2 minutes.
This year, the Monorail celebrates 55 years of service. It carries over 2 million passengers each year.
The Monorail is powered by electricity, which means no emissions.
The Monorail runs until 11 pm daily, occasionally later for special Seattle Center events.
