Looking for a little more drama in your life? Share the magic and excitement of theater with your children.  Be sure to plan ahead because this season boasts a fantastic array of musicals, puppet shows, books brought to life, fables and new original works.  You’ll find shorter length, nap-time friendly performances for the younger theatergoers as well as engaging and fresh productions for older kids. Here is our list of Seattle’s best, family friendly shows and entertainment venues this season:

You know, some people might take it personally. But when Ben Huh, CEO of Seattle-based ICanHasCheezburger.com popped up as the number 10 offender on GQ’s worst-dressed men of Silcon Valley list this month, he took the honor in classic good humor— and then issued the publication a challenge.

Wakeboarding on Lake Sammamish
If you've picked up our August issue ("The Water Issue"), you already know that there are now multiple ways to get dragged around behind a boat. Waterskiing too tame? Get airborne (and possibily inverted!) on a wakeboard. Or just watch other people do it.

Alaskan Way Viaduct
Came across this excellent history of the deep-bore tunnel dispute by David Brewster of Crosscut. If you've lost the thread of this epic, city-wide debate while freeting over the debt ceiling, this will help bring you back on track.

There's a whole lot of to-do about this Saturday's Seattle release of Dry Fly Bourbon, which is being billed as "the first-ever commercially produced bourbon in Washington State." Half of the limited-release production of 480 bottles hit the streets last week in Spokane, where Dry Fly is based. Dry Fly distiller Patrick Donovan tells me that when he showed up for work that morning at 6 a.m., there was already a line of 200 people at the door and every $65 bottle was gone within two hours.

Look out, Ballard: Phinney Ridge is giving you a run for your money! At least when it comes to new restaurants. A year ago it was all Ballard all the time (Walrus, Staple), but this summer it's all about the Ridge. I mean that literally: The Ridge Restaurant, from the owners of Prost! and Nickerson Street Saloon, will be supremely kid-friendly, from the pizza and sandwich menu to the large tables and shuffleboard table in back. The opening is set for early September, and they’ll serve both lunch and dinner.

Since its opening in the summer of 2009, Fuji Bakery has delighted us with treats like the crisp, buttery green tea Danish and light, creamy brioche chocolat. Food editor Allison Scheff raved about Fuji in our February issue, and since then the accolades have been piling up.

Coffee heads take note: Seattle Coffee Works is serving up FREE samples of Colombia Cup of Excellence--a coffee that typically goes for $100 a pound--this Friday at 1 p.m. Why pour the good stuff for free?

August is Seattle’s month to have fun in the sun.  There are endless opportunities for being active on the water, in the mountains, or on a beach but summertime play and the associated heat can bring a number of risks, too.  It’s important to plan ahead and take precautions against dehydration, sunburn, and pesky bugs.

Red Rabbit's Farm to Table Dinners
My ultimate dream of living off five acres of lush organically-farmed land (preferably in southern France) surrounded by happy farm animals who are all friends and adore me even though I'm going to someday eat them has yet to become a reality. So until then, I'm just going to have to invite myself over to other people's farms for dinner, where they'll show me around and share fascinating tidbits about their crops and growing seasons as I turn green with envy and tune out the parts about how much hard work it actually is.

Seattle kayak
Finally, a second summer day, just in time to make our August "water play" issue slightly less irritating to caged-up water geeks. Sure, it was fun to dream up dozens of pages of fun water stuff for the issue—from wakeboarding to houseboat-gawking to surfing, rafting and more—but that all started in March; back then, when we were JUST SURE we'd be doing all of that and more by now. Now being the END OF JULY.

As we finish up our fall fashion and shopping issue this week, I seem to have accumulated quite a few pretty things on my desk, which will appear throughout the September issue. And while I am going to make you wait on the other 50 finds until the issue comes out, here’s a sneak peek at four locally-made favorites currently sitting on my desk (which I am loathe to return next week!): 1.
