June is here, and Seattle’s buzzing with events. It’s Pride Month, kicking off with an art walk tonight featuring the work of local LGBTQIA+ youth. Meanwhile, the city’s bagel scene is booming — perfect for your carb cravings. We’ve also got our first yaupon espresso roaster — definitely worth a try.

In the arts world, ACT Contemporary Theatre Co. and Seattle Shakespeare are exploring a merger. And Tacoma Art Museum is asking some big questions about the roots and meaning of Western art.

We’ve rounded up the best events of the week, including musicians Elvis Costello and Daryl Hall, and the funky and eclectic Georgetown Carnival.
