  • Le Faux
    Celebrities take the stage at Julia's Restaurant. Sort of. As the show's name?Le Faux?suggests, they're actually celebrity impersonators, often in drag. It can be hard to distinguish the fake from the real, though, as the performers belt out hits from the likes of Celine Dion, Lady Gaga, and P!nk. All the while, they sport costumes so elaborate that they could almost count as the performers' costars?show outfits often feature pink bouffant wigs, bustiers, and fake eyelashes luxurious enough to hang Christmas ornaments in.

  • Thalia Symphony Orchestra
    Thalia, one of the Greek muses said to inspire artists, must have paid Seattle a visit in 1949. That's when Mikael Scheremetiew—himself a violinist and conductor—established the Thalia Symphony Orchestra and named it for that mythic figure. Scheremetiew's wish was to give fellow local musicians another creative outlet, and it was more than granted. After a brief flirtation with opera, the organization devoted itself to music, and the aural tradition continues today. The modern iteration of the orchestra, headed by new conductor Michael Miropolsky, features 80-plus instrumentalists, a core group frequently joined by noted soloists. The ensemble regularly performs unique concerts showcasing the work of composers united by common themes—a Tchaikovsky suite might share billing with a Dvorak symphony, while a Wagner overture could be accompanied by Schubert's latest remix. The orchestra's access to such a wide range of works is partially afforded by its Thalia Scheremetiew Library, one of the largest private music collections in the region.

  • University of Washington Huskies
    Members of the Pacific-12 Conference, the University of Washington Huskies athletic department boasts a rich history of triumphs.

In 2011, the men's basketball team claimed its third Pac-12 tournament title, and in 2005, the women's volleyball team steamrolled competition en route to its first-ever national title. Much of the Husky-related glory unfolds on the floors and fields of UW's lineup of pristine facilities, which includes the historic Husky Stadium and raucous Alaska Airlines Arena.
