It's baaaaaack, for the sixth year in a row! Burning Beast—the world's funnest, most delicious, meatiest feast in a field, with whole beasts cooked over open flames by Seattle's best chefs—is set for Sunday, July 21. Burning Beast benefits and takes place at the very worthy, very lovely Smoke Farm, out in the country an hour north of Seattle. It will be hot and sunny (probably), and there is a river to swim in. Dear lord, speed us to the day of Burning Beast VI! TBA.
The Stranger’s reviews of Cafe Nordo’s experimental dinner-theater-that-isn't-dinner-theater have been mixed. Thadius Van Landingham III thought the dishes uneven and the ambitions unmet in the company’s first show; Bethany Jean Clement found one of last year’s shows long but fairly rewarding, while Paul Constant delighted in the full-body pleasure of another. This spring, a modern spaghetti western. Will it be good, bad, and/or ugly—who can say? $130-$160 for season's membership, $600 for Chef's Table.

Brought to you by the people behind the World's Greatest Seattle Walking Tours, this is not only the world's greatest, but also the world's only, trivia crawl—so you are forgiven for not knowing what a trivia crawl is.
