Naked City Brewery events for May


Naked City Brewery and Taphouse has a lot planned for the month of May, including some cool events for Seattle Beer Week.

Here is the info from the brewery:

Mon May 1 – 7 pm

Welcome to Seattle’s only Monday night burlesque revue! We bring a bevy of beauties to our stage–from fresh faces to local favorites–all ready to shimmy to make you smile!

Join us for a rollicking good time at Naked City Brewery & Taphouse! And with a name like that, how could we not take it all off?


Come join our revolving cast of the Puget Sound’s most exciting ecdysiasts, while enjoying Naked City’s bevy of brews!

Tickets are $15 general admission (cabaret tables), and $20 VIP (front row! Comfy couch!)

Boldly Went – Adventure Storytelling
Tue May 2 – 7 pm

We know you have some crazy stories, so at our events, you/’re the show!

Come to the event with a story in mind that can be told in 10 minutes or less.  Fill out the Storyteller Sign-up Form when you check in, and put it in the hat.  Get ready to be selected at random to go in front of a crowd of like-minded outdoor enthusiasts to make us laugh, freak us out, or fill us with awe.

It’s not a competition, but a few judges will be chosen at random from the audience to pick a standout, because you know you want the glory and the fabulous gifts and prizes.

Of course anyone can come and be in the audience, but we know that once things get going you’ll want to talk about that one time with that bear, or that crazy night in Pakistan.  So you might as well act like the former Boy/Girl Scout that we know you are, and be prepared.

Tickets available in advance at
