“Do you live for the weekend? Beyond being a loyal TGIFer, are you a TGIS&S (Thank God It’s Saturday and Sunday) kind of person — lazy as the Fremont Troll?
This pullout is for you. Here’s a weekend-by-weekend, stick-it-on-the-fridge, Best Bets edition of Summer Guide.

May 21-22 weekend
You know all those elderly, burnt-out-hippie rock stars who are the big draw at little casinos? If their essence was boiled down and cast on the wind (OK, it’s a stretch, but stay with us here) it would settle like a fine mist on The Ave in Seattle’s University District and up would pop the University District StreetFair. It’s considered the kickoff of Seattle’s summer festival season, with the street cred to back that up: 42 years as a purveyor of macramé plant hangers, bangly earrings, henna tattoos and painted faces, along with more fire eaters, meat-cleaver jugglers, pan-pipe bands and hula-hooping guitar pickers than you’ll find anywhere this side of Eugene.www.udistrictchamber.org/StreetFair.
And don’t forget: Horned helmets and clog dancing atViking Fest in Poulsbo; tips for eating a Douglas fir (maybe?) at the Seattle Green Festival; and nautical, San Juan-y fun at Anacortes Waterfront Festival.”
