4 funny, frosty, fuzzy things to do this weekend

Looking for some off-the-beaten-track entertainment this weekend? How about a show featuring an “acrobatic archer”? Or a cask beer festival? Or an evening spent with Miss Piggy and friends?

Here are just a few ideas for interesting outings. Feel free to share more with other readers on the comments thread.

1 Moisture Festival

Through April 13, Hale’s Ales Brewery and Pub, 4301 Leary Way N.W., Seattle;  (www.moisturefestival.org).

Trapeze fliers and burlesque dames, bubble-blowers and unicycle-riding jugglers gather again for an expanded, anniversary edition of this inviting comedy/variety festival, held in two venues: Hale’s Brewery and the Broadway Performance Hall. The late-night shows and burlesque events are aimed at adults (burlesque shows are for patrons 18 and up; festival late-night shows are for those age 21 and up). But much of the fare is family friendly, and a lot of fun.

2 Seattle Modern Home Tour

11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, $30-$40, ages 12 and younger free (888-611-6882 or modernhometours.com/event/seattle).

On this self-guided tour, you’ll be able to peek into a half dozen of Seattle’s most remarkable modern homes. In a city known for its craftsman-style and Victorian housing stock, this is a rare opportunity to consider a different design sensibility.

3 Washington Cask Beer Festival

noon-4 p.m. and 6-10 p.m. Saturday, Seattle Center Exhibition Hall, 299 Mercer St., Seattle; $40-$45, $5 designated driver; www.washingtonbrewersguild.org.

Cask beer is the real deal — unfiltered, unpasteurized, straight from the cask. Dozens of Washington breweries will offer samples at this fundraiser for the Washington Brewers Guild.

4 'Muppets Most Wanted'

Now showing at several theaters. For showtimes, go to seattletimes.com/movies.

When a Muppet movie gets a three-star review, it’s a cause for celebration. Movie critic John Hartl calls “Muppets Most Wanted” “another clever installment” in the franchise.
