Magic. Aerial Performances. And a Brewski Bot!
With so much to learn it is always fun to take a break from the classroom and continue your networking in a more relaxed environment. Our Thursday evening entertainment event is a long-time favorite with attendees. This year we have reimagined the night for a new venue, the Freemont Foundry. Now a unique event venue located in the heart of Seattle’s Freemont neighborhood, the foundry opened in 1981 as a hub for the area’s eclectic artist community.
We have an action-packed evening in store for you, with fantastic food and drink, music, and entertainment. We will have our favorite casino tables and raffle prizes back this year, and attendees can dine on gourmet delights while enjoying hand crafted cocktails. Dance the night away, wonder at the eye-catching magic of Nash Fung, enjoy breathtaking aerial performances throughout the venue, or grab a beer from the Brewski Bot. If that is all just too much, take in the sweeping views of Seattle from the rooftop deck or capture your night’s moments with our interactive photo booth!
