Dinner Island Fever
No better way to combat the debilitating sense of isolation that comes with the Seattle rain than with four-courses of Hawaiian flavor at Delicatus, one of Pioneer Square's many exquisite sandwich shops. Take a trip to the "original Sandwich Islands" this Friday and see for yourself how the sweet taste of pineapple and pork is able to wash away even the most diligent of seasonal affective disorders. Tickets are $55 per person for this getaway, including tax and tip. Hawaiian shirts and colorful lei highly encouraged.

Edible Book Fest
Leave it the West Coast’s only official UNESCO City of Literature to create an entire festival dedicated to the consumption of books. Literally. A combination of the culinary and literary, Seattle’s Edible Book Fest is as zany and pun-obsessed as you would expect from a bunch of book-loving artists. Past entries include The Communist Man of Pesto and Tequila Mockingbird. Needless to say, what doesn't leave you feeling nauseous will undoubtedly leave you gripping your belly in laughter.

Don’t let the name fool you: Veg Fest is way more than a festival dedicated to eating your leafy greens. This year’s activities include over 500 different food samples, cooking demonstrations, nutritional advice, a huge selection of book recommendations, and a medical seminar focusing on the prevention and treatment of disease through a plant-based diet. Tickets are $9. Bites of baked tofu may be ephemeral, but the lessons you learn while walking the festival and talking with vegetarian experts? Those are timeless.
