Seattle Magazine’s Brunch Run
(4/21) At the end of this 5K fun run along Lake Washington, reward yourself with bite-sized versions of your favorite breakfast foods (and cocktails!) from Seattle’s tastiest brunch spots. It’s the perfect combination of exercise and mimosas (or Bloody Marys if that’s your beverage of choice). Leashed, friendly dogs are welcome, but the most important accessory you’ll need is an elastic waistband. 8 a.m.–noon. Prices vary. Magnuson Park, Hangar 30, Sand Point, 6310 NE 74th St.; 206.452.2967;


National Park Week
(4/20–4/28) Seattleites are lucky to be relatively equidistant from Mount Rainer, Olympic and North Cascades national parks. Celebrate by visiting one of them on April 20 –when all will waive their entrance fee in honor of Earth Day. Times and locations vary. Free.


Seattle Magazine’s Beauty Insiders Event  
(4/18) Come get pampered with us at Seattle magazine’s Beauty Insiders event. Hear from panelists such French Girl Organics’ Christine Griffin-Grimes discuss the state of beauty in the Pacific Northwest. Plus, you’ll get the chance to mingle with beauty and wellness professionals and try out their products. Oh, and did we mention everyone gets a swag bag full of goodies from local and national beauty brands? 6p.m.–8p.m. $35. Capitol Hill, The Riveter, 1517 12th Avenue Suite 101; 206.452.2967;


The Master and Margarita
(Through 4/28) Ever wonder what would happen if the Devil showed up in your city? In its adaptation of Mikhail Bulgakov’s famous novel, Theater Simple’s The Master and Margarita gives you an idea. The ambitious work of satire-meets-magical-realism explores a multi-dimensional story of love, religion and politics as five hard-working actors tackle more than 35 characters and a script that closely follows the original text–including what the house calls “equal opportunity nudity.” Times and price vary. Theatre Off Jackson, International District-Chinatown, 409 Seventh Ave. S; 206.340.1049;


Tulip Pedal Bike Ride
(4/20) From picturesque La Conner, choose between 20-, 40- and 60-mile bike rides that travel by the blooming tulip fields and beyond. All proceeds raised during the event will be directed to Safe Kids Northwest, a group working to prevent injury to children. Prepare for scenic views and take time to stop and smell (and Instagram) the tulips. 7:30 a.m.–4 p.m. $35. La Conner Elementary School, La Conner, 512 N Sixth St.; 360.708.2454;
