Happy Hour Outing

Night on the Town: Fonte + Showbox

There’s more to do on Black Friday than go shopping

By Kristin Cordova November 22, 2009

The Lonely Forest.

After plowing through some serious Black Friday sales downtown, unwind with your pals and glory in your spoils with happy hour at Fonte Coffee Roaster and Wine Bar, across from the Seattle Art Museum at 1st Avenue and University Street.

With Fonte’s helpful, color-coded pairing menu, you won’t have to overburden yourself after — let’s face it — an already high-pressure day. Plus, $3 plates and vino should ease your guilty consumer-conscience. (See what our Lifestyle guru Jessica Voelker says about their merry hour).

Once you’re feeling rejuvenated, take a short stroll up 1st to the Showbox for a night of all-local talent. Anacortes-bred indie rockers the Lonely Forest and minimalist band Telekinesis co-headline, with young "experimental" rockers the Globes opening. We’d go just to see Lonely Forest, whose sophomore album We Sing the Body Electric! (April 2009) delivers party anthems and smart lyrics. They rock hard, and we want in.

Tickets are available here.

Going out tonight? Try our Happy Hour Outing with drinks at Fonte and a Built to Spill show at Showbox.
