As we all know, the summer in Seattle is a time where there are way too many AWESOME events and not enough summer sunshine for experience all of them. This Saturday, August 23rd, is no different. Below are three FREE options that might tickle your fancy but the challenge is you have to choose ONE (or maybe two if you are adventurous):
OPTION #1: Chocolate Themed Movie Night
The Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) is hosting a double feature of Chocolate themed movies in conjunction with their current exhibit, Chocolate: The Exhibition. The movies start off family friendly with the classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory starring Gene Wilder and move to a “sinfully delicious” cinematic marvel later in the evening with Chocolat starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp. The festivities get started at 6 p.m. with some chocolate tasting, musical guests, and lots of other goodies and continue with the first movie at 8 p.m.
OPTION #2: World Music in the Streets
A few times a summer, South Roberto Maestas Festival Street in the Beacon Hill neighborhood comes alive with music and culture as part of Beacon Rocks! ROCKit. At the final summer celebration which goes from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., the musicians will be bringing music from Africa drums, Mexican strings, and the dance floors of the 1960’s to the stage.
OPTION #3 World Class, World Music in Historic Theater
As part of the Nights at the Neptune series, there is an opportunity to get your world music fix with some great musicians playing styles from India and the like. Below is a brief video of the musicians with a little taste of the music you will be privy to hear LIVE! Show starts at 8 p.m.
