Not a Seahawks fan? Five football-free things to do this weekend

If you’re not a Seahawks fan, you may be put off by all the attention the team is getting these days. Surely, there must be something else going on in the Northwest, right?

Right. This week’s entertainment suggestions include …

OSCAR-NOMINATED MOVIES. The list of nominees was announced yesterday. Most of the big Best Picture contenders are still showing in area theaters, but here are some tips about how to track down some of the nominees in the smaller categories. (And for just a little more fun, vote in our Academy Awards Best Picture poll.)

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE. See a pop superstar at the top of his game. Last I checked, there were still tickets available to his show tonight (Friday, Jan. 17) at KeyArena.

“RICHARD II.” Seattle Shakespeare Company, doing what it does best, is presenting one of Shakespeare’s most profound historical plays at Center Theatre at Seattle Center. The acting is impeccable, writes theater critic Misha Berson.

MKT. Check out Ethan Stowell’s new spot on North 55th Street — the eighth jewel in his restaurant crown. Restaurant critic Providence Cicero says it signals a new direction for the chef behind Staple & Fancy and How to Cook a Wolf.

MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY. Concerts, film programs, talks and service projects guard the memory of the civil rights leader throughout the county. Read a related story and also refer to a list of 21 MLK events taking place over the long weekend — including at least four on game day (that’s Sunday, for you Seahawks-avoiders).
