Bite of Seattle Three events on the Seattle Center calendar bring Lower Queen Anne to gridlock and turn Mercer and Denny into fuming ribbons of steel. Summer begins, of course, with Northwest Folklife and ends with Bumbershoot. At midpoint, this weekend’s Bite of Seattle is no less popular, with over 400,000 expected to attend if the weather stays clear. Inside the grounds you’ll find the usual huge array of food vendors, beer gardens, wine-tasting areas, celebrity-chef cook-offs and demos, a Nintendo gaming area inside the Armory (air-conditioned, let’s note), live music on five stages, craft vendors, and more. You don’t have to gorge on food, of course, but what else would be the point of going? And you’ll have the rest of summer to work off the calories. Also note the 8:30 p.m. Friday screening of Back to the Future at the Mural Amphitheatre-not a bad way to wait out the traffic and let the temperature cool. (11 a.m.-9 p.m. Fri. & Sat. 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sun.) T. BOND Seattle Center, 305 Harrison St., Seattle, WA 98109 Free Saturday, July 19, 2014

Finn MacCool’s Happy Hour At first glance, Finn’s might appear to be your run-of-the-mill Americanized “Irish” pub, complete with trivia night, karaoke and an official happy hour menu that only reinforces the thought: $3 drinks and $4 apps materialize both early (4-6 p.m.) and late (10 p.m.-midnight). But the bar’s magic is in its nightly rotation of 8 p.m-to-close specials. During Tuesday’s weekly beer pong tourney you can cash in on $5 High Life pitchers even if you don’t have a paddle in your hand, or drown your losses in $3 Jack Daniel’s and Jameson shots. Thursday nights-the alternate bane and fortune of college students-offers the allure of $1 Millers and $3 Jager shots that do their best to keep you from sobering up. And Sunday, for those dedicated enough to keep the streak alive, means half off everything. That’s right, everything.
