All Seattleites know the deal: when the sun comes out you go outside and you get optimistic. The over-abundance of rain and gloom that usually fills the skies here in the Pacific Northwest means that the minute we see bright blue & white fluff above us, we sort of forget anything else is going on. No longer are we bitter, sarcastic Seattelites; we are now sunny, happy, spunky Seattleites ready to melt the “Seattle-freeze” and meet new people.
So…if you want to meet new people in Seattle this weekend, check out a couple events around the area that promise to be a good time! Who knows, you may even run into *this* Seattle fashion blogger, running around town, in a sundress with margarita (on the rocks) in hand!
SAM Remix – Friday at 8pm
The SAM Remix is a rare type of event to find in Seattle – it doesn’t involve hiking, or flannel, or breweries. In fact, at the last SAM Remix event I attended, it felt more like I was transported to NYC’s Brooklyn for the posh opening of a new art gallery. It’s a must-attend event, and includes dancing, DJs, art, music, craft cocktails, girls in pretty dresses, guys in slick slacks and the whos-who of the Seattle social scene. I’ll be there (wearing something I don’t have picked out yet…yikes) – so buy your tickets here (quickly, they sold out last time around). You can use the discount code blogremix0613 and get $5 off general admission. See you there!
Frolik Rooftop Kitchen & Cocktails – All Weekend
Confession: I haven’t yet been to this place. However I’ve been hearing such amazing things about it that I had to share. On a sunny weekend like this one – a rooftop bar with delicious cocktails, fun bites, shuffleboard and ping-pong may be the perfect place to spend an afternoon. Happy Hour is from 4pm-10pm, and you can tweet them or like their Facebook page for a bigger scoop on this hot new Seattle gem.
The Georgetown Carnival – Saturday at Noon
Quick warning: Georgetown is a funky Seattle neighborhood. So if you are a straight-laced fellow who doesn’t enjoy biker jackets, clowns, beer (a lot) and craziness – this may not be the event for you. However if you are looking for a good time plus amazing people watching (bonus!), you might want to check out this hip annual festival. You’ll find live music, “power tool racing”, beer gardens, “Dead Baby Bike race” and other random, ridiculous and creepy activities. Check out the carnival website and good luck.
Of course the last thing you could do is try and find me. I’ll be doing things all around Seattle thing weekend, and sometimes I tweet about them. So why not play the best game ever, “Find Natasha this weekend and party with her”? Just a suggestion.
