Attention Seattle Inferiority Complex!
Look, here it is in this week’s New Yorker, proof that Seattle is finally world class.
It seems the classiest magazine in the nation is expanding its “Goings on About Town” section, which until now, as far as I can tell, has been a listing of well-chosen events in the New York area—and only in the New York area. In this week’s issue, after the “Goings on About Town,” there’s something new called “World Beat,” a listing of well-chosen events in worthy cities around the globe.
Which cities? After Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, there Seattle is on page 64, in the company of international cities such as London, Paris, Sydney, and Tokyo.
For the late spring, the New Yorker “World Beat” section suggests events at the Crocodile, the Showbox, and El Corazon.
