On the List: First Hill block party, Capitol Hill art walk, Mad Homes debut (+ 30 more)

Next weekend, Party Mountain will exhaust itself as the 2011 Capitol Hill Block Party plays out in Pike/Pine. Consider this weekend a bit of a quiet lull. But not too quiet. Want to include your Capitol Hill event in the mix? Add it to the 100% free and community-driven CHS Calendar.

  • Cupcake Royale’s promotion to raise funds for the It Gets Better Project was a big success. Thursday afternoon as Capitol Hill’s July art walk gets underway, owner Jody Hall will present Capitol Hill writer and advocate Dan Savage with a big check to support the project that works to stamp out bullying of LGBT youth:

You’ve heard us talk about our mega bake sale for The Gay cupcake last month, right? During the prideful month of June, we wanted to use our super powers for good and we set a goal to raise $5,000 for the It Gets Better Project. Turns out the community went wild for the idea and gobbled up The Gay cupcake so we decided to double our donation.


This Thursday, we’d like to invite you to come celebrate with us as Cupcake Royale founder Jody Hall presents Dan Savage with a check for $10,000 for the It Gets Better Project. Jody, Dan and a Pride Foundation scholar will all say a few words about the personal importance of this project. And if you didn’t get a chance to sample The Gay during the month of June, it will be making a limited reappearance for this event.

  • Also Thursday night, the Lobby Bar is host to the Seattle Gay Scene 4-year anniversary bash. We’ve been supporters of SGS from the start because, hey, we have a soft spot for online-only underdogs (and the fact they were willing to try out our advertising self-serve tools didn’t hurt the relationship, either). Stop by Thursday night to give the guys a birthday smooch.
  • Last, but definitely not least made-up, Seattle’s Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence — The Abbey of St. Joan contingent is celebrating 15 years of fun and service with a “traditional” quinceañera:

Can you believe we’ve been dragging our pasty white, glitter-encrusted mugs around Seattle and the far reaches of Washington State for 15 years?

What could be a better way, then, to celebrate our Anniversary Spectacular than with our very own Quinceañera!

In the finest Latin tradition of being the center of attention, we are painting sugar skulls and twisting crepe flowers in anticipation of these exciting celebrations (naturally we will be repeating all of this next year for the finest tradition of being the center of attention known as the “Sweet Sixteen” party):

Thursday the 14th: Latin-themed Bear-eoke! The Cuff Complex (1533 13th ave), 8:00 pm – Midnight.

Friday the 15th: Fiesta in the Park! Seattle Central Community College. (Time to be announced) Games for kids and adults alike!

Saturday the 16th: Anniversary Celebration and the 2011 Grant Awards! Chapel Bar (1600 Melrose), 8:00 pm – ?. The theme of the evening is “Dia de la Monja Muerte” (Day of the Nun Dead). Come for the cake, stay for the Grant Awards! It’s that special time of the year when we give thousands back to the community from The Sisters’ Charity Grant Fund!
