Gigs4Good #11 at Hard Rock for benefiting Seattle Works

If you don’t like music, you’re not human. You’re probably not dancer either. Gigs4Good is a series of concerts featuring local musicians where the profits go toward a different non-profit each time, and this time it’s to benefit Seattle Works. Specifically it’s benefiting Seattle Works Day, which is one day that all the different Seattle Works teams (which prior to have done smaller projects in teams) get together to do different projects around the city. At the end of the morning, all the teams congregate and drink beer. I would know, because we played flip cup. Illegal? Possibly. O’DOYLE RULES! 
This concert features Ivan & Aloysha, a duo that plays feel good folky American acoustic vibin music (and, yes that is a genre), as well as Yuni in Taxco…who I’ve never heard before.  Whoops!

St. Pat’s Day Dash on 3/17 benefiting the Detlef Schrempf Foundation

I really enjoy calories. St. Patrick’s Day is a day that I enjoy many of them. The St. Pat’s Dash is the best way to burn a couple before you destroy your liver.  There will be something like a billion people running this 4 mi course, which seems like it changes year to year.  I almost went last year, but it was super shitty out and I was feeling fat.  THIS YEAR however, I’m not making that mistake.  The pictures look ridiculously awesome, plus I’m not one to miss out on a good costume party.

Here’s the info from the website:
The F5 St. Patrick’s Day Dash benefits the Detlef Schrempf Foundation in support of Northwest children’s charities.  In 2011, we contributed over $200,000 to our non-profit partners. In 2012, we are directing funds to four worthy organizations: Camp Fire USA Puget Sound Council, Seattle Children’s Autism Center, Rise n’ Shine, and the Healing Center.
