Pike Brewing Turns 30
In 1989, a little brewery opened its doors on Western Avenue; this year, that little brewery turns 30. Pike Brewing, née Pike Place Brewery, was just the third microbrewery Seattle had ever seen. To celebrate its third decade in the Emerald City, beer prices are dropping back to what they were 30 years ago. That means pints are just $2.50, for one day only. Classics like the Pike Place Ale, Pike XXXXX Stout, and the Pike IPA will make appearances, as well as a new limited release brew, the Pike Reunion IPA. Other festivities, like the 30 Beers for 30 Years punch card, last through the month. The Pike Pub and Tankard and Tun, Free

Icelandic Takeover at Cuoco
Over the course of two weeks, Taste of Iceland brings music, food, culture, and even knitting to the city during 10 different Nordic events. There's a gender equality panel (Thursday), a 21-plus KEXP concert (Saturday), an Icelandic film festival (Sunday), and a bar takeover at Capitol Hill’s Liberty (Sunday). Then there’s Cuoco. Icelander Georg Arnar Halldórsson partners with chef Ron Anderson to take over the menu at the Tom Douglas spot with a special four-course meal: arctic char with Icelandic wasabi, cod in a langoustine broth, lamb with summer squash, and—of course—skyr for dessert. The binational collab extends to the drinks, too, with Icelandic mixologist Tóta partnering with Seattle’s Jonny Spielsinger to sling vodka and aquavit cocktails through the night. Cuoco, $80
