comic art at Gay City

Good spring weather — sunny and high near 60F– on Thursday is a perfect reason to walk around the ‘hood and check out the art shows opening for the monthly Capitol Hill Arts Walk, aka your hyper-local affordable art fair. Highlights this month include a queer comic art exhibition at Gay City Health Project; Tales from the Grind at Office Nomads in which six Seattle authors read stories and poems about the jobs they’ve loved, lost, and sometimes, quit in a frenzied rage; humorous photography by Fab Rideti at Paris Eastside; interpretations of the Zodiac signs at True Love. Find many more art walk events via the mobile-friendly blitzcapitolhill.com.

This “mature content” play is an homage to the spaghetti western, and marks the 50th anniversary of Sergio Leone’s classic Fistful of Dollars. Queue the whistle + wah-wah-wah song.

Friday, Neighbors hosts Battle of the Bulge, an underwear model contest and benefit for Social Outreach Seattle.

Also Friday, Chop Suey hosts a benefit show to raise funds for the second annual ‘Mo-Wave musical festival. CHS wrote about the first year for the queer music fest here.

St. Patrick’s Day (aka amateur drinking day, aka everyone-is-Irish day) is Monday, but you can start to party green on Saturday at Tommy Gun.

We’ll start things off with doors at 5pm and dinner will last until our traditional corned beef sandwiches (piled on rye with cabbage, naturally) runs out. You’ll find Guinness on draft and array of Irish whiskeys at the ready. Once again, we’ll feature Irish dancers at 10pm.”
