SUNDAZED -- "For Seattle-area ravers, summers are synonymous with outdoor parties. Most of these take place under the night sky, far from the concrete snarl of the city's center. Nice idea in concept, but a little difficult in practice for us lazier groove children. A more convenient alternative can be found in the cleverly titled Sundazed events. They carry on a time-tested, Sunday-in-the-park tradition of setting up sound systems for local DJs to rock the open air of waterfront spots around town. This installment features none other than Seattle's reigning godfather of the groove, Donald Glaude. A perfect way to nurse hangovers of all stripes." (Courtney Reimer) Myrtle Edwards Park, 2 pm 'til sunset, free.


SWEDISH LANGUAGE CLASSES -- I will not make a reference to lutefisk. I will not make a reference to a particular culinary Muppet. I am here simply to inform you that Swedish language classes begin this week, all levels, in evening classes or private tutoring. You betcha. Swedish Language Services, call 781-3014 for a class brochure.
