It’s our ideal bedtime story tonight at the Sorrento Hotel. (Photo courtesy of Sorrento Hotel.)

The Sorrento Hotel’s popular Night School series—a Michael Hebb brainchild bringing intellectuals, artists, mixologists, and chefs together for some booze-infused show-and-tells—returns this evening with 12 Writers + 12 Musicians = 12 Conversations. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Bumbershoot, tonight’s event goes down in 12 miked hotel rooms—each occupied by Bumbershoot writers and musicians (past and present) who’ll lead an engaging convo about the arts. Bonus: The bars are stocked. Double bonus: It’s for a good cause (raising money for 826 Seattle).
