Whale oosiks

Come on by for a book signing event in Seattle

THURSDAY: a “Chat & Chew” at Ivar’s Salmon House in Seattle

When we’re not visiting airports, we’re checking out odd museums and unusual attractions in Seattle and beyond.

We often write about those places here. And once in a while, we put them together in a book.

The 2nd edition of our guidebook, “111 Places in Seattle That You Must Not Miss,” is just out. And on Thursday, October 12, 2023, from 6 pm to 8 pm, we’ll be at Ivar’s Salmon House in Seattle for a meet & greet to celebrate some of the city’s most amusing & intriguing attractions featured in the guide.

Ivar’s Salmon House is one of the chapters in the guidebook and the evening will begin with a manager’s tour of the hidden and not-so-hidden treasures on site, including whale oosiks, wonderful carvings, and a collection of antique canoes.

The evening will also feature a heavy appetizer buffet with crab cakes, salmon skewers, Ivar’s famous clam chowder, and more plus a short program highlighting a handful of favorite spots in the book.

Representatives from some of the places featured in the guidebook will be joining us, so you’ll get to meet them as well.

We’ll of course have copies of “111 Places in Seattle That You Must Not Miss” available for sale at a great price. (Think holiday gifts, date nights, and places to send your out-of-town visitors).

This is a ticketed event (the appetizer buffet alone should make it worth it!) and you’ll get 50% off if you use the code FRIENDSANDFAMILY when purchasing your ticket online.

If you’re in or around Seattle on Thursday evening between 6 and 8 pm, we hope to see you at Ivar’s Salmon House for a chat & chew, tour, and book signing event at Ivar’s Salmon House.
