Hmmmmm…we suspect many of our beloved readers are fleeing for the holidays, back to families and/or warmer climes, but for those of us having a Seattle Xmas, here’s some stuff to check out tonight. If you wanna go to any of the many theater type events, go buy tickets NOW and check for availability…some shows could be sold out, or close to it!
And, stay safe…traffic is messy out there!
Happy Christmas Eve-Eve Day! (The Day Before Christmas Eve Day)
