Give Bees a Chance
Yes, our black and yellow striped friends are a nuisance when you stop and try to smell the flowers but they're actually quite important. In an effort to save the plummeting population of bees, five chefs across the country are holding dinners to benefit a campaign to educate kids about the importance of our pollinators. Tom Douglas and Jackie Cross will host a fundraising dinner at the Hot Stove Society featuring bee-inspired drinks and dishes such as coal-roasted sweet potato with honeycomb, Willapa Hills Big Boy Blue cheese, charred scallion, and Marcona almonds. The $125 tickets will all go towards the Whole Kids Foundation and their Give Bees a Chance campaign.

Lactose-intolerant friends can still enjoy themselves with vegan coconut raspberry ice cream so they don't have to choose between a moment of bliss and hours of regret.

Pig and Pink Picnic
Celebrate the official start of summer with Vif's fifth annual pig roast and rosé soiree. Head to this Fremont cafe–slash–wine bar for some rosé from Magnum and a $15 picnic plate. The party will take place in Vik's parking lot, all casual like. And porcine averse do take note: There is a vegetarian option for those who aren't so partial to eating pig.

Boozy Terrarium Making
If you're one of those people who aspires to become a Pinterest God or do-it-yourselfer but can never quite get yourself off the couch and away from Netflix, then go over to Henry's Tavern for a beer-fueled crafting session. Participants can reserve a spot for $49 and will fill handmade glass terrariums with succulents, soil, charcoal, rocks, and moss as they sip their beverage of choice. Bring home your finished product to show off to all your friends and family.
