Event of the Week
Sunday, April 6th: The pinball pros at Skill Shot are bringing their annual Tommy Tournament to Shorty’s in Belltown tonight at 6pm. Here's how it works: teams of two play pinball, except the guy controlling the flappers wears a blindfold while the other guy... um, drinks his beer and hits on his girlfriend, or something.
Hotel parties, a pastry pop-up, and competitive pinball... blindfolded
Event of the Week
Saturday, April 5th, 2-4pm: You can finally stop complaining to your friends about how sad gluten allergies have made your life, thanks to The Beer Junction in West Seattle, where they're tapping some of the first gluten-free kegs in Seattle -- two IPAs from Harvester Brewing that actually don't suck.
Sunday, April 6th: What’s the well-known pastry chef from Revel, Joule, and Book Bindery supposed to do while she looks for a permanent brick-and-mortar location? Throw a pop-up bakery event at Ballard’s Brimmer and Heeltap, where twice a month she'll ply you with her culinary confections until her permanent place, called Parchment, opens this Fall.
This Belltown boozer is combining your favorite things all under one roof: arcade games, hot dogs, and plenty of drinks. Stop in for pinball and a cocktail... at the same time.
Served by one of Seattle's best sushi joints, the boutique Hotel Max may seem attractive for its loads of headroom, but don't forget that entire place is littered with sweet art and portraiture.
Opened within shooting distance of the planned Cap Hill Light Rail spot, this 50-seat Prohibition-themed drinkery (from the gangstress behind The Bottleneck) boasts eats curated by one of the chefs at Skillet (porchetta sandwiches, black truffle popcorn, etc) and plenty of craft cocktails.
The Beer Junction is a bottle shop & rustic bar where you can sip a selection of cider on tap or peruse the 1,300+ bottles in-house. Taste everything on tap, fill up a growler, or discover a new taste from the over 50 countries where The Beer Junction sources their brews. This spot also hosts weekly brewer events, so be sure to check online what happenings are going on!
Within Brimmer & Heeltap's red brick walls lies a black, white canvas of an interior (dotted with blue lights and booths) where one of a kind recipes and presentations steal all the attention. The menu's for brunch and dinner alike are short and sweet, and main dishes are divided into sections for vegetarian, meat, and seafood (there are three seasonal options for each). Meals like grilled octopus, duck fried rice, and saur broccoli salad look as great as they taste, just like their 10 specialty cocktail options.
