Have a friend that’s visiting Seattle this week? Why not share this podcast with them and give them ideas of something to do? 

This week’s podcast features our top picks including an event based around the art of macaroni and cheese, a couples workshop and a comedy show from a guy with a Ph.D.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, November 6, you know you’re gonna want to drink some beer and eat dinner.  So check out the Left Hand Beer Dinner at Burgundian. Drink up some great craft beer from the Left Hand Brewing Company and indulge in a fantastic five course meal. Yum on that.

Wednesday, November 6, is also a good day to take the Estate Planning Workshop at the Saturn Building in Fremont. It’s good information you’ll need to know some day.

Have you ever wanted to taste a bunch of different hard ciders and raise money for a good cause at the same time? Thursday, November 7, is your big chance with the 2013 Hard Cider Test Fundraiser at Little Uncle restaurant in Pioneer Square. Funds help support City Fruit’s fruit harvest.

Artist Trust helps local artists in a whole lot of ways. So head down to EMP on Friday, November 8, for the Artist Trust Awards Party. See who’s getting a grant this year and get 50% off your Artist Trust membership at the event. Support local artists!

They said you were crazy when you called your mac and cheese an art form. But it’s true. On Friday, November 8, join the fun at Chez Klozar for Melt: The Art of Macaroni and Cheese. It’s a book launch event with lots of pasta. And lots of cheese.

It’s time for Theater Schmeater’s Auction Schmauction on Saturday, November 9. That’s a gala event with wine, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction and a performance of special scenes from favorite past productions. Good times. Good cause.

Want to step up your relationship? On Saturday, November 9, buy a Brown Paper Ticket for Hold Me Tight, at the Inn at the Market, downtown. This couples workshop will help you strengthen the bonds between you and your significant other in a number of important ways.

On Sunday, November 10, head on over to Bainbridge Island’s Heyday Farm for Sunday Supper on the Farm. That’s dinner, wine and a fabulous meal prepared by Mike Easton of Corvo. All at a gorgeous venue on the island.

Okay, if estate planning workshops, hard cider tastings and local arts events don’t do it for you, fair enough. But Seattle is a funny town. Here are just a few of our favorite comedy events coming up this week.

On Wednesday, November 6, you’re bound to be in the mood for a laugh. So why not stop in at the 34th Annual International Comedy Competition Opening Night at Columbia City Theater. This will be one funny night.

Wednesday, November 6, get your laugh on with Couples Therapy. That’s right, couples tell jokes. The quirks and tension in relationships is always good for a laugh. Unless it’s yours. This one’s at the Jewelbox Theater in Belltown.

KRAM’s BINGOmatic Improv Machine takes 16 short improv scenes and puts them against the backdrop of a twisted bingo game. The audience controls the order of the show and prizes are won by a lucky few. That’s on Friday, November 8, and Saturday, November 9, at the Ballard Northwest Senior Center.

The New York Times called Tim Lee ‘a very cerebral comedian.’ You can catch him at the Jewelbox Theater in Belltown on Friday, November 9, through the weekend. This guy’s got a Ph.D and was a scientist before he hit the comedy circuit. Funny! Plus, you might learn something.
