This weekend’s Capitol Hill happenings include a cloudy but dry May art walk, a 20th anniversary party, a burger party, pieroigi fest, and the start of a once-in-a-lifetime project to recreate the heart of Broadway. Big stuff!

But there’s more! The 2015 edition of the Seattle International Film Festival kicks off Thursday night with a party downtown — a full slate of films at the Egyptian and the Harvard Exit (and beyond) follows through June 7th.
