Although much of Seattle is on hold, there’s still plenty happening across the city. And while you may not be able to go out, you can still get involved with your community thanks to the internet! Streaming content from across the city is a great way to give our local artists and businesses some love while we’re taking a break from the bustle. This week, we’re highlighting some of the best things to do from the comfort of your couch.

Stream the Sounders’ Top Matches

Sounders FC is re-broadcasting epic games every Saturday night based on fan votes. We know you’re missing the real thing, but watching the Sounders win is always a solid Saturday night plan.
