Museum of Flight

It’s only appropriate that a fantastic museum of all things flight is in the city where Boeing began. The Museum of Flight (www.museumofflight. org. 9404 E. Marginal Way S, 206.764.5700) has a ton to see, with multiple galleries both indoor and out. If you only have a limited amount of time, start in the T.A. Wilson Great Gallery, home to more than 50 historic aircraft. Throughout the galleries, be sure to look up—many aircraft are hanging. In the Great Gallery, don’t miss a replica of the Boeing B&W, the first airplane designed and built by the company, the Lockheed M-21 Blackbird, the world’s fastest airplane, or the Taylor Aerocar III, an airplaneslash-car that drove on the road (towing the wings and tail or detaching from them) and flew in the sky. From the Great Gallery, head next to the William E. Boeing Red

Barn. This building is the birthplace of The Boeing Company. It’s the original manufacturing plant, moved to the site of the museum from its initial location on the Duwamish River and restored in 1983. See everything from the original factory floor to Bill Boeing’s Office. Next, cross the street via the overhead bridge and head out to the Aviation Pavillion. In this outdoor space be sure to check

out the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the third plane of the type built by the company. This particular aircraft flew to 23 countries during the Dream Tour. It’s configured to show part of a typical interior, but still has plenty of room for informational displays. This side of the museum also has a large space flight exhibit for aspiring astronauts. Before leaving, make a quick stop in the Airpark, where you can tour an old Air Force One that carried Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon.

Arts events, Halloween happenings and seafood specialties

The art scene in Seattle goes far beyond paintings in museums and even the hot new band. Here, art includes visual art in a huge variety of mediums, music, theater and some things that encompass multiple genres. While it’s impossible to do a comprehensive round-up, here’s a start to exploring Seattle’s many facets of art.

Whether you love photography, the symphony, art walks or street art, the Emerald City provides plenty of options to enrich your travels. Here, a few favorite spots no matter the medium. VISUAL ART Seattle’s visual art community is extensive, between museums large and small as well as galleries. Be sure to check out glass art while here, as the Seattle community is one of the best. Dale Chihuly, a giant in blown-glass art, has a longterm exhibit at Chihuly Garden and Glass (www.chihulygar denandglass.com. Seattle Center, 305 Harrison St., 206.753.4940) or check out the Seattle Glassblowing Studio (www.seattleglassblowing.com.

Public art downtown

2227 Fifth Ave., 206.448.2181). If you’re interested in Native American Art, two wonderful galleries to get started are Steinbrueck Native Gallery (www.steinbrueck nativegallery.com. 2030 Western Ave., 206.441.3821) and Stonington Gallery (www.stoningtongallery. com. 125 S. Jackson St., 886.405.4485). Other museums include the Seattle Art Museum (www.seattle artmuseum.com. 1300 First Ave., 206.654.3100), the Frye Art Museum (www.fryemuseum.org. 704 Terry Ave., 206.622.9250) and the Henry Art Gallery (www.henryart.org. University of Washington, 15th Ave. NE and N.E. 41st St., 206.543.2280). Another great museum is the Northwest African American Museum (www. naamnw.org. 2300 S. Massachusetts St., 206.518.6000). For photography, check out Photographic Center Northwest (www.pcnw.org. 900 12th Ave., 206.720.7222) while pottery lovers should visit Pottery Northwest (www.potterynorthwest.org. 226 First Ave. N, 206.285.4421).

STREET ART Don’t forget to simply look around when exploring. Seattle is full of public art, from sculpture to murals. Consider a visit to the Olympic Sculpture Park (Broad St. and Western Ave.), nine acres of art and incredible views. Another fantastic neighborhood for public art is South Lake Union. Changing fast with the entrance of Amazon headquarters in addition to many other tech companies, there are sculptures of all kinds scattered through the streets and in courtyards. ART WALKS Neighborhood art walks usually happen once a month, with businesses opening their doors to display art, host music and more. One of the best is the Pioneer Square art walk on the first Thursday of every month. Other art walks worth checking out are the second Friday in Belltown, second Saturday in Ballard and second Thursday in Capitol Hill. See www. seattleartwalks.org or www. seattle.gov for more details.

A BEGINNER’S GUIDE Not sure where to begin with recreational cannabis? Below, information to get you started. • There are two basic types of cannabis that originated in different parts of the world. Indica is thought to have originated near Afghanistan. The plant is short and bushy. Sativa, on the other hand, is believed to come from more temperate areas close to the equator. The Sativa plant is tall and thin. The two categories are also thought to give users a different type of high. Indica’s effects are more full body and relaxing. Many people prefer to use Indica at night, when they want to relax on the couch. Sativa gives a more uplifting high that leaves people feeling energized. It tends to be more popular for use during the day. There are also hybrid strains that have characteristics from each—if you don’t know what to get, ask at the recreational cannabis store. Employees are well versed in what they carry and can help you find the right product. • Smoking cannabis is probably the most widely used method for consumption. Smoking cannabis releases tetrahydrocannabinol— THC—from the cannabis, which gets absored into the bloodstream through the lungs. THC is the main psychoactive chemical in cannabis. Options for smoking include joints (a slang term for cigarettes made with cannabis, sometimes mixed with tobacco or other non-addictive herbs), blunts (cannabis rolled in a cigar wrapper), pipes (also called pieces or bowls, where the cannabis is placed in the bowl, a heat source is applied and the user draws air through the stem) and bongs (similar to pipes but with a water chamber the smoke passes through before inhalation). If it’s the first time smoking, it is recommended to use only a pinch and wait 10-15 minutes to see what effect the marijuana has. • Edibles are another way to consume marijuana. Edibles can be a good option for tourists, since places to smoke are limited without a private space, such as a private home. Edibles can be tricky, however, as it takes the body a lot longer to metabolize the THC. Enjoy the edible treats (everything from chocolates to cookies) slowly—they are often made with concentrated cannabis oil, making them quite strong. Even if you’ve had homemade edibles in the past, these regulated treats can be very different. It is suggested to start with a single serving or less, and wait two to three hours to see what the effects are. It’s also important to keep edibles away from children and animals, as they look—and taste—like regular treats.

• Other options available include concentrates and vaporizer pens. Concentrates are just that—concentrated cannabis in the form of oils, hashes, waxes and more. The effects are strong and quick, so start with a small amount. Vaporizer pens are similar to electronic cigarettes and often use cannabis oil, which is concentrated. So again, start with a small amount. • Learn more about the entire recreational cannabis industry by taking a tour. There are a number of tours in the area, including Kush Tourism, Seattle Green Adventures and The Original Cannabus. Kush has two tours: The Kush Tour, a three-and-a-half hour tour of glass blowing, a grow operation, oil production, edibles and retail stores; and the Dawg Star Tour, an hour long tour to a commercial production facility. Either tour can be booked at www. kushtourism.com. Seattle Green Adventures has three tours. The four-hour Standard Tour includes two or three cannabis shops and a visit to either a grow operation or a glass blowing studio. There is also a Weekday Airport Welcome Tour, where they pick you up at the airport, take you to a cannabis shop and then drop you off at your hotel. Seattle Green Adventures also does customizable tours. Find more information at www.cannabistourseattle.com. The Original Cannabus has a two-and-a-half hour tour to the first licensed recreational cannabis facility in the city as well as a high-end cannabis store. Visit www.theoriginalcannabus.com to book a tour.

[WHERE INSIDE]

My Seattle

Allison Narver

[Director, Man of L a Mancha at The 5th Avenue Theatre] Seattle native Allison Narver directs the new production of "Man of La Mancha" playing at The 5th Avenue Theatre Oct. 7-30. She's also worked in Portland, Pittsburgh, New York, Boise and more, plus Seattle's Book-It Repertory Theatre, Seattle Repertory Theatre and Intiman. Find more information at www.5thavenue.org. What’s different about this new production? When I first read MOLM and listened to the music again, I was struck by how relevant this show is to events in the world today. Much like in the play, people around the world are held in detainment camps or prisons, arrested and convicted

without the benefit of a trial. MOLM has always been set during The Spanish Inquisition, a time when heretics were imprisoned without trials of any kind, locked up in prisons, tortured and condemned; deprived of their goods and properties, and given over to be executed. The resonance

of this play made me want to create a contemporary setting—a place that could be a refugee, detainment camp or some kind of political prison. What's best about working at the 5th? It’s a great place to work because the staff and

You’ve worked at a variety of theaters in Seattle—what makes the arts community here special? I love the history of Seattle theater—from its original vaudeville circuit days, to The Empty Space Park shows to the cool insurgence of young theater artists right now. There’s a history of independence that’s really special—whether it’s music, film, visual/performance art or theater. A lot of new work gets developed here which is a rare, lovely and essential thing for any healthy arts community. Where do you like to take visitors? After I take them to the usual spots (the [Pike Place] Market, the downtown library, etc.) I like to take them out of town— the San Juans or the mountains or Tacoma.

Any favorite restaurants in Seattle? Dick’s Drive-In. For sure. Or else something oldschool-Seattle like Canlis or Place Pigalle. Do you have any favorite museums in town? The Henry, The Frye Do you have a favorite Seattle landmark? The PI Globe. I’m always afraid that it will be taken down to make room for more condos. Do you have a favorite Seattle neighborhood? I think it’s got to be Capitol Hill because I’ve lived there so much of my life. People who grew up on Capitol Hill are super passionate about it and protective of it. But then I guess the same thing could be said about people who grew up in Seattle. You’ve worked in a variety of places. What makes Seattle special to you? Suffice it to say that I left New York to bring my daughter up here. I wanted her to grow up around the mountains, water and trees. A combination of Seattle’s weird history, independence and eccentricity make it a really special place to be. What spot is No. 1 on your travel wish list? West Africa for sure—but really, anywhere. I’ve got wanderlust in a big way. I’m happiest when I travel.
