Tickets for Ed Sheeran's July concert have sold out, but you can follow in his footsteps and head to the Square Knot Diner (where he shot his "Shape Of You" music video) as part of the Georgetown Bites event on Saturday.

Just because you haven't planned your weekend far in advance doesn't mean you can't still go out and have a good time. This weekend, there are plenty of options for last-minute entertainment that won't cost more than $10, including Seattle Fringe Festival shows, a reading featuring the man Paul Constant once said could become Seattle's elder comics statesman (Peter Bagge), the 29th Annual Best of the Northwest Art and Fine Craft Show, a Prince and Michael Jackson tribute dance party, and a Korean street food pop-up and art market. See them all below, and find even more options on our complete Things To Do calendar.
