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

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/

Want to enter to win one of four pairs of tickets to see the movie Atomic Blonde at Pacific Place in downtown Seattle?
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.
