All The Things You Absolutely Have to Do in Seattle This Weekend

Ok, so the only thing you really have to do in Seattle right now is wash your hands. Frequently. But not even that is going to take up your whole weekend, which is why we've assembled this list of other things to do like eating Nashville Hot Chicken, slurping fresh shucked oysters, and trying limited-edition burgers. Stay hygenic, cover your mouth when you cough, and be safe. See you out there, Seattle!

Pretend you only like Rick Springfield ironically 

Friday, March 6
Tulalip Resort Casino 
The best thing about going to see this '80s pop icon perform? Well, aside from Jessie Girl live, is the fact that he knows it's absurd he's still doing shows four decades after his biggest hit, and he leans into it. Hard. 
Cost: Tickets start at $65

Sisters and Brothers is back. Go get some! 

Friday, March 6 - Sunday, March 8
Sneaky Tiki
Seattle's best (only?!) Nashville Hot Chicken joint recently closed its cramped, and incredibly popular, Georgetown location but almost immediately decamped to nearby by Sneaky Tiki, where you can now get their full range of spicy fried poultry, including their full brunch menu highlighted by waffles topped with, well, chicken of course.  
Cost: Varies

Eat a burger so good it'll make you wanna vote 

Friday, March 6 - Sunday, March 8
Li'l Woody's 
Seattle's beloved burger provider is hoping that covering two 1/4lb Painted Hills Natural Beef grass-fed beef patties in pepper jack & cheddar cheese from Tillamook, caramelized onions, chipotle mayo, and bacon will help remind you that ballots are due Tuesday in Washington's primary election. Hey, it’s worth a shot.
Cost: Around $9   

Eat some of the world's best bivalves 

Saturday, March 7 - Sunday, March 8
Sure, it's a bit of a shlep getting to Whidbey Island, but a ferry ride is always a good idea. And so is eating as many Penn Cove mussels as possible, which is why a trip to this two day festival held in their honor is totally worth it. 
Cost: Free to attend

Eat at one (or more) of Seattle best restaurants 

Saturday, March 7 - Sunday, March 8
Various Locations
You know that one restaurant you've been meaning to try? That one that opened last summer but you keep forgetting to stop by? Or the one that's been around for years but always had a line when you showed up? Well, our Eat Seeker is a list of just those kinda spots so check it out... and then go to there. 
Cost: Varies

Slurp as many fresh oysters as you can 

Sunday, March 8 
Vif Seattle
Freezing water temperatures make for the best oysters, which makes winter the best time to try these briny bivalves. It's even better if someone else is shucking them, and picking the right beverages to pair with them, so you should definitely hit this Fremont cafe/bar between 1-4pm today. 
Cost: Free to attend

Catch an up-and-coming EDM act 

Sunday, March 8
After selling out their Friday show (tickets may still be available at the door) this LA-based duo decided to give you a second chance to hear tracks from a catchy, uplifting debut album that just dropped last month. 
Cost: 20
