This week of cultural events in Seattle is filled with ongoing performance and film festivals, artist lectures, studio tours and one very big art opening. (It’s a literal opening: the public debut of the massive, tunnel replica The Great Northern at MadArt.)

Poet Robert Burns is celebrated with three separate events, including a Scotch Ale launch at Naked City Brewery and a traditional Burns supper at Lark.
