Why don't we consider this week one long pre-party for the Seahawks Super Bowl appearance on Sunday—deal? Great! We have a lot of options for you to consider for the festivities in our event listings and Staff Picks.
Here are a few highlights I found for Monday, Jan. 26:
FOOD & DRINK
| Santé is hosting an "Eat What You Drink" Cocktail Dinner
Monday night, and it sounds awesome. It's a seven-course dinner showcasing flavors and ingredients that show up in the food and cocktail included for each course. OOLA micro-distillery from Seattle is on hand to provide the booze and chat about their goods. Reservations required, so give a jingle quick-like.
| Turning the famous story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde — two sides of the same man — into a musical might not seem like a natural, but the touring Broadway version of Jekyll & Hyde
stopping at the INB Performing Arts Center shows how the drama and deadly actions of the doctor translate well to emotional songs.
| The Toasters haven’t released a ton of new music of late. Doesn’t matter. These guys are one of the longest-running American ska bands, going all the way back to the early ’80s in New York City, and fans can still hear the classic 2-Tone ska sound whenever they play. Bands like No Doubt and Mighty Mighty Bosstones owe them a huge debt. The Toasters play The Hop!
Monday night, along with The Camorra, the Ragtag Romantics and Collateral Damage.
