Looking for fun ways to spend your weekend (other than celebrating that we are one month closer to summer...)? Here are a few things to do around the Sound:
- Think warm. The Seattle Boat Show wraps up on Sunday, but there is plenty to see and do at CenturyLink Field & South Lake Union before then. Friday night, check out Sails & Ales, an evening featuring Washington craft beer. There's also the Splash! acrobatic shows - Friday @ 7pm and Saturday at 3pm. Watching acrobat daredevils will take your mind off the cold weather for a little while. "Picture yourself on a boat in a river..." or Lake Washington. Instant mental sunshine.
- And speaking of acrobatics, Cirque du Soleil: AmaLuna
features characters loosely inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest
. Seattle is the first stop on the U.S. tour, so you'll be of the first to see the spectacle under the traveling Grand Chapiteau (a climate-controlled tent) through March 24th at Marymoor Park. The story is secondary to the acrobatics and juggling, so this is great for the kids, too.
- If you're looking for date night out, Dr. John plays Jazz Alley all weekend
. For a musical date night in, try a Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers album. Heartbreaker Mike Campbell celebrates a birthday on February 1st. Or if something across the pond is more your taste, the great Graham Nash celebrates his birthday on Saturday.
