TWISTED FLICKS – MAGIC CARPET
FRIDAY AT THE HISTORIC EVERETT THEATRE
Twisted Flicks is a movie experience like no other! Seattle’s only live movie re-dubbing show merges improv and great old “B” movies for a unique and hilarious comedy experience. Here’s how it works: a cheesy “B” movie is shown on the screen, but with its original soundtrack removed. From there, improvisers create all new dialogue, sound effects, and music – all live, all based on audience suggestions! Tickets here.

EAT + DRINK
We've been doing research for the June EVVY awards and have eaten a TON of Fish & Chips the last couple of weeks. As far as we can tell, it all comes down the the age-old question of breaded or battered. We're torn – but we do know that Ray's is winning by a landslide right now. Go cast your vote here.
A few people voted for the N.E.L.L. Burger back when we did our best burger contest and we were like, 'what the heck is a N.E.L.L. BURGER?" So we asked around and found it. They're served up in the little concession shack behind the Garfield Park (map) Little League fields and they are, in fact, delicious. We're sad to say that the season JUST ended, so you'll have to try one next year – but it'll be worth the wait.
