February is the shortest month (even though the leap year gives us an extra day this time around), so get the most out of it and check out the many events happening around town this week. There is no shortage of events (not to mention First Thursday Art Walk), but we don’t want to overwhelm you. Here are our top picks for the coming week, including one of the most fun parties of the year: the Henry’s Annual Gala and after hours Dance Party!

Care to just catch a movie? Check out what’s playing at Landmark Theatres locally through Thursday, February 4. (I highly recommend the Oscar-nominated animated shorts.) Whatever you do, don’t just Netflix and Chill. (Valentine’s Day is coming, so there’s an occasion for that.) Just Get Out, Seattle!
