This week’s podcast features including tributes to Jimi Hendrix and Lou Reed, tons of holiday gift events and even more food events!

Tomorrow, Wednesday, November 27, head on over to the Vera Project at Seattle Center for the Jimi Hendrix Annual Birthday Tribute Concert. It’s live music by Leon and Tina Hendrix and others. Serious rock just in time for the holiday.

Also, tomorrow Wednesday, November 27, Kirkland’s Laughs Comedy Spot hosts Turkey Day Eve Comedy Show. Seattle’s funniest people take on the impending holiday. Good laughs right before the big day.

If the Jimi Hendrix show got you in the mood for tribute concerts, head on over to the Columbia City Theater on Friday, November 29, for a Tribute to Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground. This one features performances by Hounds of the Wild Hunt, Bigfoot Wallace and others.

Friday, November 29 and through the weekend, hit up the Native Holiday Gift Fair at Duwamish Longhouse & Cultural Center. Buy directly from native crafts people. Great stuff in every price range.

Friday November 29, through the weekend and beyond, check out Unexpected Productions’ An Improvised Christmas Carol. The audience decides the story. It’s different every time. But it’s always funny, weird and Christmas-y.

You know about Etsy, the online craft shop, right? Take it live on Friday, November 29 and Saturday, November 30, at Elliot Hall at Pier 66. Check out tons of hand made crafts from local Etsy artists.

Saturday, November 30, it’s as good a time as any to get environmental. So head on over to the Bullitt Center on Capitol Hill for a tour of the greenest commercial building in the country. It’s a very cool space with some serious solar panels on the roof.

On Sunday, December 1, why not learn how to make a cute stuffed whale at Ugly Baby and La Ru in downtown Seattle? No experience necessary. And you’ll walk away with a cute little stuffed whale. Perfect for a kiddo in your life.

Okay, if stuffed whales, tribute concerts and crafts fairs don’t cut it in your world, that’s okay. But Seattle is loaded with all kinds of food events this time of year. Here are just a few of our favorites this week.

On Tuesday, November 26, check out Seattle Thai Culinary Experience in Madison Park.  Immerse yourself in this intensive course and… who knows, some pad thai might just make it onto your Thanksgiving menu.

Tuesday, November 26, is also the day for a tasting at Boka restaurant with Two Beer Brewery. Sip beers and nosh on Boka’s famous truffle fries. For free. Yes, you heard that correctly.

Okay, this one isn’t exactly about food… but close enough. On Saturday, November 30, head on over to a post Thanksgiving show at Calamity Jane’s in Georgetown for Peeks from the Pantry: A Burlesque Benefit. It’s a cabaret that celebrates the sexiness of food. Yum!

After Thanksgiving all food talk turns to cookies, right? So pick up a Brown Paper Ticket for Dreamy Desserts— Vegan and Gluten Free at Fire and Earth Kitchen in Shoreline. On Sunday, December 1, you’ll learn how to make Almond & Pear Thumbprint cookies, Fall Harvest Cobbler and more.
