Weekend preview: Beer, pizza, movies, more

Usually, we try to tie our weekend-preview lists together with a theme, but this week, we admit, we’re all over the place. You like beer and pizza? Check. You got kids? Check. You like the outdoors … movies … haunted houses? Check, check and check.

The next few days are shaping up to be a blast, rain or no rain. Add your suggestions to the comments thread for other readers, and have a great weekend.

1 Halloween events

Whether you’re looking for a pumpkin patch for the kids — or some grown-up thrills for yourself — peruse Madeline McKenzie’s big list of Halloween fun. Corn mazes, haunted houses and carnivals are all part of the mix.

2 Movies

The stars are out this weekend. The star ratings, that is — movie critic Moira Macdonald gave “Birdman” a four-star review (our highest rating) and Lynn Shelton’s “Laggies” three stars. Meanwhile, reviewer John Hartl bestowed three-and-a-half stars on “Dear White People.” That’s just the top of the list, for all this week’s movie reviews, go to seattletimes.com/movies.

3 Rainier R Day

We know, we know, Rainier Beer is no longer brewed in Seattle. But that doesn’t stop Northwesterners from craving their Vitamin R. Last year, the city celebrated the return of the big neon R atop the old Rainier Brewery building. On the anniversary of that auspicious occasion, Friday, Oct. 24, a giant Jubilee beer can will cruise Seattle neighborhoods, alongside Wild Rainiers and other attractions. The public is invited to follow the procession.

4 Independent Pizza

It might be a little crowded, because restaurant reviewer Providence Cicero just wrote that this Madison Park spot makes some of the best pizza in Seattle. If you don’t want to brave the crowds, put it on your list and come back midweek.

5 Returning salmon

If the rain lets up long enough for you to venture outdoors, consider heading out to view one of the miracles of life in the Northwest. As News Tribune reporter Jeffrey P. Mayor writes, “Area streams and rivers are full of fish such as chinook, coho, chum and sockeye salmon, and steelhead trout making their way up waters such as the Puyallup and Cedar rivers, Kennedy Creek, in Mason County, and Minter Creek, in Pierce County.” Read Mayor’s full article for details.
