The Weekend Report: What's Cookin'

Welcome to the Weekend Report, where we tell you what's up in Seattle this weekend - the things you definitely don't want to miss. Now that things are slowly but surely opening up in our region, we figured it's a good time to start this weekly feature up again! We're guaranteed to miss some events, so definitely email us at if there is something wonderful we need to know about!

Friday, June 11

'In the Heights.' Lin-Manuel Miranda's Tony Award-winning musical turned film adaption will be on HBO Max and in theaters (as of June 10). "In the Heights" follows the residents of New York City's Washington Heights neighborhood over three blistering hot summer days. On stage, it's an ebullient, intimate story told in an intimate way. On the big screen, it's an intimate story told with cinematic grandeur.
