This summer’s (astronomical) dog days are over, but there are still plenty of options to squeeze everything out of these late-August summer days.
Case(s) in point:
- The Pacific Northwest Black Pride 2019 kicks off at Gay City on Thursday.
- Writers get a chance to share their manuscripts and works in progress this week and next.
- A bar crawl to spread awareness of sexual and reproductive health rights, education, and access happens on Capitol Hill this Friday.
- The Harry Potter book club meets at Ada’s Technical Books and Cafe this Sunday.
- While Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren is off to WaMu Theatre, Attorney General Bob Ferguson comes to Capitol Hill on Monday.
- Highball & Chicken Karaage specials for $12 on Tuesdays at Tamari Bar

WEDNESDAY, Aug 21: It’s not the best way to choose a City Council person to represent District 3. But it’s usually a fun and sometimes bizarre night. This year’s event is on Capitol Hill. And, yay, it’s free. Get a first-person look at D3 candidates Kshama Sawant and Egan Orion through the warped prism of Hill-headquartered alt-biweekly The Stranger at Candidate Survivor 2019. Fortunately, Washington Bus will also be there. Neumos, 6 PM
Looking for something a little less frat house and a little more service club? The Urbanist and the Capitol Hill Renter Initiative are holding their monthly volunteer night with a letter writing session on studying green spaces and transit-oriented design near future Link light-rail stations and advancing the principles of Seattle’s Green New Deal and the MASS Coalition’s Transportation Package. You can help. Cafe Solstice, 5:30 PM
