The website Atlas Obscura has branches all over the country that host bizarre or unique events for anyone who registers. This one is a celebration of a South Seattle treasure: "an Ethiopian coffee ceremony hosted by Milen Medhane of Kaffa Coffee." This is a way to learn about how coffee is roasted and prepared, as well as take part in the ceremony that started it all, from the part of the world where coffee originated.
Kaffa Coffee, 8136 Rainier Ave S, https://www.atlasobscura.com, 10:30 am, $30.
At the Bow-Wows and Books events, "children read aloud to certified therapy dogs from Project Canine." If you learned how to read, chances are good that you did so by reading aloud. This is a great way for kids to gain confidence by reading to a non-judgmental audience. And it's pretty damn adorable, too.
