Event of the Week: It's actually dozens of events celebrating Seattle Beer Week over the next... um, 11 days, with highlights including a Rat City Rollergirls throwdown at Big Al's, brew dinners by Tom Douglas, dudes drinking half-racks at the Fremont Troll, and some sweet beer cocktails like one above at Smith. Go here to see the massive event list, or download the app Thursday, May 9th Tonight (and again on Friday), Re-Bar is hosting a Lord of the Rings-themed burlesque show called Minxes of Middle Earth, which you shall not pass... up, if you know what's good for you. Score tickets ASAP! Saturday, May 11th From 11a-4p, Cap Hill's Polish Home community center is hosting an all-you-can-eat pierogi event that's so sweet, it doesn't really need a beer garden or live music -- but it has 'em anyway. Info and pictures of people in funny costumes are right here! The lady behind Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery in Ballard is sharing the secrets behind her badass boozed-up milkshakes from 4-5p and loading guests down with swag like copies of her new book and some delicious desserts. Space is severely limited, so RSVP now. Two local swimwear slingers, one of whom's had her stuff in Sports Illustrated, are showing off new designs at Neighbours from 7-10p with some help from models who, admittedly, aren't quite as famous as the ones in SI but are probably still pretty... pretty. Get a front row seat, here! Sunday, May 12th Oh, did you forget that Sunday is Mother's Day? It's cool, 'cause we've got you covered there, too. Check out our round-up of awesome brunch spots to take all kinds of moms.
