Chinatown ID + JamFest

Dear friends,

Get thee to the International district! It’s so much more than you think it is – so much more than just Uwajimaya & dim sum (not that I don’t LOVE both of those things). Every time I go there I discover something new – a quirky gallery, a very old and very delicious restaurant, a charming shop, a one-of-a-kind museum…should I keep going?

I had the privilege of appearing in a video my friends at Class Project just made for JamFest, an annual music and culture festival that will be happening every 3rd Saturday in the I.D. this summer (the first one is this Saturday the 21st!), that demonstrates just that: there’s a lot goin’ on here! See for yourself:

Pretty cool huh?! As for the pictures above – they’re just from around the neighborhood. About half of them are from inside the Wing Luke Museum (the one I referred to as one-of-a-kind above). It’s the only Museum of Asian American history in the entire U.S. and it’s full of a lot of really cool local art too.

Add it to your lists, Seattlites, I’m tellin’ ya.
