A little yoga, some indie rock, artisanal cocktails and a good old-fashioned pancake breakfast (no religious guilt or affiliation necessary!). I’m particularly looking forward to the return of Town Hall events with The Distraction Addiction talk on Monday. And don’t forget First Thursday when admission to the museums around town is FREE.
Northwest Film Forum, 9/6- 9/12 at 7 and 9 p.m., $10
Thinking about the pharmaceutical industry can be depressing, perplexing and maddening. However, expect to be stimulated by this 2012 documentary, which digs into the drug industry via the people its products affect – be they patients, healthcare professionals or professional guinea pigs – in a totally down-to-earth way.
Objects of Meditation: Yoga at MOHAI
Museum of History and Industry, Saturdays in September from 8:30-9:45, FREE
If you haven’t visited MOHAI’s new armory location in South Lake Union yet, this is a perfect opportunity to get a glimpse (before it even opens!). The commuters will be asleep (and thus getting there will be a breeze), the lake will be picturesque and second only to free yoga at a sculpture park is free yoga (Hatha style, from 8 Limbs instructors) in the bright atrium of a museum, encircled by artifacts from Seattle history. Bring your own mat.
Swedish Pancake Breakfast
Swedish Cultural Center, Sun. 9/8 from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., $9
Welcome in the fall with live Scandinavian folk music, real Swedes and Swedish pancakes (not unlike a crepe with oh-so-much lingonberry) aplenty, served up with ham, milk, Swedish coffee and orange juice.
