Chris Hansen
Just to be clear, we’re inviting the arena-building multimillionaire who’s bringing the NBA and NHL to Seattle, not the guy with the same name who hosts To Catch a Predator. That would be awkward

Debra Prinzing
In her new book The 50 Mile Bouquet, the Seattle green thumb explains why local, sustainable flowers are best. Call it the slow-bloom movement.

T.J. Martin
The Seattle-born director scored an Oscar for his true sports drama Undefeated, but to us he’ll always be the guy who once made a documentary about beer pong.

Frieda Sondland
The 90-year-old art patron only had to make near-daily visits to the Frye Museum of Art for a decade before she got to cocurate a show, titled Beloved: Pictures at an Exhibition. (Closes Apr 15)

Chone Figgins
We invited him last year when his dismal batting average made headlines. Now, coming off a year of injury, the Mariners’ new leadoff hitter has nowhere to go but up—though we’d settle for first base at the home opener. (Apr 13)

Alexandra Abraham
Dropping out of college is usually a bad idea, but this Seattle U student took a hiatus to invent DripCatch—which collects slippery and dangerous pools of kitchen water—and sold it to restaurateurs like Tom Douglas. That’s worth skipping finals.
