It was a fantastic summer here in Seattle. But now we’ve zoomed past that Autumnal Equinox, signaling the beginning of Fall. Enjoying the latter part of the year in Seattle can sometimes require more indoor activities than outdoor, so here are some upcoming localicious events to help get you back into your inside state of mind.
9/27, 10/25, 11/8, 11/22: UW Football at Husky Stadium
Your Huskies are 4-0 and heading into Pac-12 play this week. Get yourself a ticket under cover, find a tailgate party with a tent and enjoy Saturday afternoon with 60,000 of your closest friends.
Throughout the fall: UW Women’s Volleyball at Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Ed
A little under the radar, the UW Women’s Volleyball team is lighting it up, starting the year 12-0 and winning 36 out 42 games in those 12 matches. They play down in Hec Ed, so take a short walk and enjoy a fun evening inside cheering on the Dawgs.
10/2: Free First Thursday at Burke Museum
On the first Thursday of every month, admission to the Burke Museum is FREE and the museum will remain open until 8 pm. Check out their events calendar to see the other exhibits and displays throughout the fall.
10/5: FidoFEST at U-Village
Support the Humane Society and enjoy live music, pet vendors, dog contests, a raffle and a beer and wine garden sponsored by Piatti Ristorante & Bar. Plus local celebrities and experts will choose Seattle’s top dogs on stage and award each owner a $50 U Village gift card. So bring those Pillar Pets out for a fun afternoon at U-Village.
10/15 – 10/26: “Cold Empty Terrible” at Floyd and Delores Jones Playhouse at UW
The UW Drama Department puts on a number of performances throughout the year. With tickets between $10-$25, it’s an affordable way to get a little culture into your social calendar. This original work was created by Whit MacLaughlin and members of the UW’s Professional Actor Training Program, and describes itslef as “a resuscitation of a theatrical debacle embedded inside Anton Chekhov’s 1896 masterpiece, The Seagull.” We have no idea what that means, but it is definitely unique.
