November is a time to gather with friends and family, to give thanks for the things we have, and to eat, drink and be merry! There are so many great ways to celebrate this season in Seattle- we’ve put together some of our favorites below.
Seattle is increasingly becoming known for our delicious fare. November presents a lot of opportunities to treat yourself. The month begins with Seattle Restaurant Week, your opportunity to dine out at some of the area’s best restaurants for a great price. The promotion runs October 27 through November 7th Sundays through Thursdays, and features 3-course dinners for just $35. Get more info and read our blog post here.
This year The Stranger is kicking off their inaugural Seattle Pizza Week November 11th through the 16th. Pizza-lovers will be able to taste slices all over the city for just $2/per slice. Get the line-up here.
There are also a number of establishments serving Thanksgiving and Friendsgiving dinners this year. Restaurants include Frolik Kitchen, Outlier, Palisade (they also offer Thanksgiving to-go!), Palomino and Wild Ginger. Visit their websites for complete menus and to make reservations.
On November 2nd you can raise a glass (or two) at Ballard Brewed Winter Beer Festival. Ten local breweries will be offering two of their beers on tap, with each releasing a new brew at the festival. The afternoon offers two sessions, both with live music, and proceeds will benefit Bellwether Housing, Seattle’s largest private, nonprofit affordable housing provider. Get tickets here.
November holds the well-loved South Sound Beer Festival.

Get in the holiday spirit at Best of the Northwest. This 31st annual arts and fine crafts show will be held at Magnuson Park in Seattle from November 8th through the 10th. Browse the work of more than 120 of the area’s best artists and artisans, for unique items and one-of-a-kind gifts.
