Pacific Northwest Ballet presents: Romeo et Juliette at McCaw Hall
Romeo et Juliette returns to PNB to sweep you off your feet – just in time for Valentine’s Day!

It's hot outside. There's been hundreds of people lining the shores of Lake Washington the past few days. Some of the toplessness at Dykiki got me wondering—does Seattle have an official nude beach or park in 2015? What are the rules? Should you drop your drawers at the T-Dock? Will we ever have a Wreck Beach like Vancouver, Canada, or a Sauvie Island like in Portland, Oregon (where I shot the photo campaign for HUMP! 2013)?

Also, has anyone ever been to the Tiger Mountain Family Nudist Park? They just sent The Stranger a press release for a “Groovy, Funky, Jazzy, Naked Kind of Thing” that's happening this Saturday, June 13 (press release after the jump).

I'm just curious. I mean, uh, I'M ASKING FOR A FRIEND.
