For Today

Seattle: City of Literature

To say we are a literate city is an understatement. For the last four years Seattle was ranked the second most literate city in the nation, losing each time to Washington D.C. (and if any city is reading more than us it's reassuring to know it's the one making the laws).

Now Seattle is prepping for an attempt to be recognized as a UNESCO City of Literature, and you can hear Mayor Ed Murray, local novelist Ryan Boudinot, and other community guests discuss why we deserve this erudite status.

Seattle: City of Literature, Wed, March 12, 7:30-8:45pm, Town Hall 1119 8th Ave, Free.

For Thursday

Chocolate for Choice 2014

NARAL Pro-Choice Washington hosts their annual fundraiser where they bring together chocolate and reproductive rights. There will be over 40 chocolatiers and PubliCola's own Erica Barnett will be a celebrity judge along with the likes of KEXP's Kerri Harrop and Mayor Ed Murray.

Depending on your donation, you could walk out with a full pound of your favorites from the event so indulge—there’s no guilt if it’s for a good cause.  

Chocolate for Choice, Thur, March 13, 6:30-8:30pm, Terrace Club at Safeco Field 1250 1st  Ave, $40 and up.

For Friday

Pi Day

With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner it’s possible you may overlook another very important holiday. This Friday marks Pi Day and celebrates the mathematical constant: the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter.

Bring your kids to the Seattle Children’s Museum to celebrate with math and food stories, pizza pie, and for dessert, even more pie. It’s a delicious way to get young minds interested in math at an early age.

The event starts at noon, but 1:59 is when it really gets going if you want to be more specific.

Pi Day, Fri, March 14, 12pm, Seattle Children’s Museum 305 Harrison St, $8.25.
