Bottomless Mimosas

Sat, Sun at 10 am–2 pm.

Bottomless anything is good, especially if it involves champagne. At weekend brunch at Ma'ono or Agrodolce, your mimosa ($12 and $14, respectively) never ends. And at Golden Beetle $15 mimosas are bottomless at weekday lunch AND weekend brunch—and they're made with fresh juices and house-made syrups and shrubs. (GB says, "Please note: Your glass will actually have a bottom, for ease of drinking and mess-related reasons, however, we will keep refilling it for you.") $12-$15.

Free Wine Tasting at McCarthy & Schiering

Sat at 11 am–5 pm.

Website

McCarthy & Schiering claims to be the oldest wine shop in Seattle; it is not. But they were recognized as retailer of the year by Food & Wine in 1998 and as one of the "top 10 small specialty shops featuring wines from Piedmont and Tuscany” by GQ in 2004. They offer free wine tastings at both their Ravenna and Queen Anne stores every Saturday, with winemakers often there for discussion purposes. Free.

Free Wine Tasting at Champion Wine Cellars

Sat, 12–5 pm.

Website

Champion owner Emile Ninaud possesses Seattle's very first wine license: He opened in 1969 and works there to this day. Though he's French by birth, he's made Champion a snobbery-free zone, with wine novices welcome and an emphasis on good value for whatever your budget may be. His Saturday drop-in wine tastings—from the more than 1,500 bottles in stock, with tons from France—are all about "obscure wines from obscure regions," he says. FREE.

Can Can Castaways

Wed at 7:30 pm, Fri-Sat at 7:30 and 10:30 pm. Open-ended run.

The Can Can Castaways, as we've often said in The Stranger, are like a gateway drug for modern dance. People show up at the subterranean, red-lit bar, order a few drinks, and expect to see some hardbodies dancing—they get that. But what they also get is an imaginative team of dancers and designers (often the dancers are the designers), who create dreamscapes from the Moulin Rouge to a bondage club in Tokyo. $10-$45.
