Welcome to North Seattle Rotary Club

March 28, 2014

Rotary_Club_LogoThe Cheap Bastard wants to say thanks for hosting The Cheap Bastard yesterday. I haven’t been to a Rotary meeting in years and forgot how fun they can be.

Here’s a quick summary of the deals I mentioned in my presentation yesterday:

Burien Little Theatre–all volunteers get free tickets to see a show including folks who work on props, sets and costumes.

Spectrum Dance Theater–volunteer meeters and greeters at its studio performances in its location on Lake Washington Blvd. can stay and see the show for free or an hour of dance classes for an hour’s worth of volunteer work.

Balorico–Four hours of light administrative or marketing work gets you a dance lesson.

Seattle International Film Festival–ushers get at least one voucher to see a free movie during the festival per shift worked. Volunteer before the festival and you can get vouchers that are good during the festival.

Pay-What-You Can Performances — A Contemporary Theatre and many other local theater companies have shows during the run of each play where you can pay what you can afford to see a play. There’s a list in the theater section of my book.

The Adult Story Time at Seattle Public Library that I mentioned is called Thrilling Tales and it runs from 12:05 to 12:50 every Monday at the Central Library. So, you’ll have just enough time to make it back to work after lunch hour.

I mentioned Scarecrow Video‘s free screenings in a post earlier this week.

Ballard Locks–There are free concerts at 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays from Memorial Day to Labor Day, weather permitting.

Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park has free live music most Friday and Saturday nights.

Seattle Art Museum–When I wrote the book, the Seattle Art Museum confirmed that the admission price is indeed a donation and that you can pay whatever you want to get in.

Center For Wooden Boats–I know it sounds to good to be true, but you can indeed sign up for a free 45 minute cruise around Lake Union on an antique wooden every Sunday. Although the official sign-up time is 10, the line starts around 9:30. Most cruises start around 1, so you might want to sign up and then head out for brunch.

AAA Discounts–The Museum of Glass, Tillicum Village and the LeMay Family Collection are among the many places that offer discounts for AAA members. Find more here.

Rick Steves Europe Through the Back Door–The budget travel guru offers a wide variety of classes at his shop in Edmonds throughout the year.
