New Year's Eve Dinner and French Cafe Concert at Maximilien

It's Paris, circa WWII... You are on a cobblestone street, stepping into a concert hall. You hear music, French cafe concert music. A striking trio of vocals, violin and accordion. A beautiful chanteuse, a riveting movement. A passionate, joyous time! Transport yourself to a "no jet lag" evening in Paris with Rouge, evoking the sounds of Edith Piaf to Zaz, fast musettes to gypsy jazz (with an American twist)! Bandleader Janet Elle sings and dances between tables to keep romance in the air with award-winning musicians violinist Brandon Vance and accordionist Toby Hanson. Chef Potvin has created two celebratory menus: a five-course menu served at the 6:00 pm seating and a seven-course menu at the 9:00 pm seating. Check out the menus and reserve your table now!

Xtreme NYE Theatresports Party at Unexpected Productions

Comedy, camaraderie and champagne! Laugh your way into the new year with Unexpected Productions, proudly presentiing Seattle's only fast-paced comedy improv battle.
