Everybody looks forward to Friday and Saturday. As far as days go, they get all the fun. Maybe Wednesday gets a little bit of love with the whole "hump day" schtick every now then. Tuesday? Big whoop. Or is it a big whoop after all? We've decided to give Tuesday through Friday a little boost. A little more "happy," if…

(Photo via Sister Kate Dance Company) The holidays have, once again, come and gone. But the good news is that there's always the next holiday to look forward to.

Yes, we're telling the truth, and no, we haven't been hitting the sauce at the bar. Seattle's first female mayor, Bertha Landes? She shows up every now and then. And since she was mayor during prohibition, she's a little...…

But if fall means anything, it means that fall specials are around the corner. Now that the Seahawks are back in action, we're offering free admission to anyone with a ticket…

Ahh, Seafair. The week where the sun shines brightest, the planes fly fastest, and the boats are still called hydro"planes." It's a week of festivities for which we'd gladly close our highway bridges. Okay, maybe not gladly. But you get the idea. It's a time for celebration, sunshine, and fun, and we wouldn't miss it for the world. In fact,…
