Outdoors: Consider Rediscovering Discovery Park

Roddy Scheer
A view of Puget Sound from Discovery Park

If you haven't yet had the pleasure of touring Discovery Park in Magnolia, join a Seattle Park's docent on a 3.5 mile walk there this coming Wednesday morning from 9:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. (ages 18+ only). Plan on some slight elevation gain and, given that this is Seattle, be prepared for mud and rain. Part of the hike will be done in silence so participants can listen for the sounds of the season. While the hike is free, pre-registration is required by calling the Discovery Park Environmental Learning Center at 206.386.4236.

Fashion + Style Friday: Spring makeup trends, flirty rain boots and one last hoorah for Oslo’s

However, it is well worth my time—and yours too—to get up early, grab that latte to go and get down to the downtown Nordstrom tomorrow for their Spring 2011 Cosmetics Trend Show. Starting bright and early at 8 a.m., Nordstrom experts will preview new spring colors and share makeup tips at the 2-hour long event. Read more »

First Thursday art walk:
Joey Veltkamp
Thursday (3/3) -
Seattle artist and local art blogger Joey Veltkamp has a well-documented owl obsession (his last show featured more than 30 papier-mâché owls), but now he’s on to something new—ghosts. For this show, he’s fired more than 20 ceramic spooks, using paint and resin to give a glazing effect. If you haven’t yet encountered the endearing work of this rising star, it’s high time. Times vary. Free. SOIL Gallery, 112 Third Ave. S; 206.264.8061; Read more »
