The creative minds behind Tomato Assault have turned 40,000 pounds of tomatoes into an all-day party benefiting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Festivities kick off at noon with music, inflatables, and a costume contest, all leading up to the main event: a tomato fight of epic proportions. Inside the tomato pit, revelers hurl, chuck, and squeeze tomato guts at their fellow participants, abiding by the rule the messier the better. The day's fun is augmented by beer and food onsite.
Behind the muraled storefront that sits on a busy Seattle arterial street, Waterwheel Lounge’s paneled and dark bar harkens back to the 1970s. Bucket-seated pleather stools, an abundance of neon, the big TV in the corner and a lone pool table provide all the ambiance one could wish for. There’s plenty of beer on tap, but bottles and cans of Rainier, PBR, shots of Jägermeister, and a mix of nightly events including karaoke, pub trivia, and live music are the real draw to this unabashed dive bar – as is the outdoor seating area during summer. The menu offers pub fare – fries or tots, burgers and sandwiches, wings, nachos, the occasional taco – and on weekends, Waterwheel brings forth a brunch menu featuring chicken-fried steak, French toast, biscuits and gravy and scrambles.

At ComedySportz Seattle, the spontaneity of improv humor marries the competitiveness of athletics in weekly shows that churn out laughs for roughly 100 minutes each. During a match, two opposing teams of comics square off in red and blue uniforms as a referee presides. The teams launch into sketches and routines fueled by audience suggestions, much like on the TV show Whose Line Is It Anyway?. Since random, casual outbursts are so integral to the show, no two performances are the same.
Continuing an 80-year tradition of sliver screenings started during its past life as the Bay Theatre, Majestic Bay Theatres melds state-of-the-art equipment with the architectural allure of a vintage movie house. Peepers searching for the latest action flick or rollicking comedy can scan the triplex theater's schedule of notable talkies, including the upcoming drama The Debt starring Helen Mirren and Sam Worthington or the current fantasy spine-tingler Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. Dolby Digital Surround EX audio systems wash cinephiles in cascades of crystal-clear sound waves unknown in the still, soundless desert of the real world, and plush stadium seats embrace bodies tenderly without obscuring sight lines.
When Seattle Drum School owner and founder Steve Smith first began leading private lessons, bands such as Queen and Pink Floyd were just hitting their stride. That was nearly four decades ago, before air guitar became a legitimate art form, and well before Steve opened the doors to SDS in 1986. Since then, though, Steve has fostered the school into a thriving music institution, and one that currently boasts a faculty of more than 40 talented teachers. Such a large staff translates into an equally diverse selection of lessons for students, who can hone their skills in everything from guitar, piano, and voice to saxophone, turntables, and, of course, drums.
