Of Events Both Fun and Not

Posted by on July 8 at 12:37 PM

Are there any Seattle metro-area soccer hooligans having a World Cup House Party tomorrow morning? You should invite, if only because I’ve never cracked a beer before noon.

Or, alternately, if you hate fun, today’s the big day for The Pioneer Square Fire Festival. You’d better hurry on down, though…you’ve already missed the two-hour marching band extravaganza and the saxophone-led rendition of “The Girl From Ipanema.” God help us all.

UPDATE: My coworker just came back from his lunch break wearing a child-size Bellevue Fire Department Fire Fighter’s Hat. Looks like there’s fun to be had in Pioneer Square, after all…if you broadly readjust your definition of ‘fun.’

Don't forget, its Derby Days in Redmond....

Isn't it also Mercer Island Days or something? They were setting off fireworks over there last night.

Oh, my God, it's totally the lamest weekend in Seattle's long and lame festival history. Except for the Derby Days. Which, of course, rock.
