WEDNESDAY: Today the aquarium and the city are teaming up to bring you an interactive tour of Seattle's seawall. This will probably make you feel unsafe—thanks, city built on fill!—at which point you are invited to give your input on the design for a nonlethal new seawall. (The Seattle Aquarium, 1483 Alaskan way, 5:30 p.m., free)
THURSDAY: Child sex trafficking in Seattle will make you sad. Come be depressed about it (but also informed) at a forum featuring Deborah Richardson of the Women's Funding Network, city officials, and representatives from YouthCare and Boyer Research. (Great Hall, Eighth Ave, 7-8:00 p.m., $5)
FRIDAY: Hey there, lazy people who did nothing on MLK Day but enjoy some time off. Here's your chance to make up for it with UW Tacoma Professor Michael Honey's take on Martin Luther King, labor rights, and economic justice. (Room 407, Smith Hall, University of Washington, 3:30 p.m., free)
SATURDAY: Seawall, sex trafficking, and lack of economic justice got you down? Distract yourself with some cute owl sightings today at the Seward Park Owl Prowl (exactly what it sounds like). (Seward Park Environmental & Audubon Center, 5902 Lake Washington Blvd S, 5:30 p.m., $4) Owls, motherfuckers!
