Rock Box has speakers outside so Capitol Hill's drinking masses can hear you too.

Rock Box

Capitol Hill’s Japanese-style karaoke mecca has 11 private sofa-filled rooms, a large event space, and a full bar. An impressive song list holds more than 75,000 tunes in multiple languages, so it’s unlikely they won’t have your go-to song. rockboxseattle.com

Sea Wolf Bakers

Head bakers Kit and Jesse Schumann lead hands-on bread-making classes at their Fremont bakery in partnership with collectible cookbook store Book Larder. Learn to mix, shape, and proof your own fluffy sourdough starter or leave class with salty soft pretzel rolls fresh from the oven. seawolfbakers.com

Woodland Park Zoo

Small private tours get you face time with lemurs, penguins, even a Malayan tiger. Depending on what animals you meet, you might just get to help feed them. zoo.org/tours

Lawless Forge

Hammer atop an anvil under a nest of dangling lights at this old-world blacksmith studio in SoDo. With the guidance of a trained professional, you’ll forge a horseshoe knife, bottle opener, or wasabi bowl with your own two hands. lawlessforge.com

Uncorked Canvas

Resident artists at this paint and wine studio in Delridge give step-by-step instructions so attendees can recreate a particular piece—Bob Ross–inspired paintings are always the favorites here. uncorkedcanvas.com

Century Ballroom

The upstairs ballroom inside the historic Oddfellows building offers private lessons in
a variety of partner-style dances; Tin Table across the hall is the perfect place to refuel before heading back out on the dance floor. centuryballroom.com
