Starting today we’re going to highlight fun things to #SEAanddo in the city on our Instagram (go follow us now!) First up for these stormy days:

Ballard's Cafe Mox offers more than 600 games for people to play in the store – everything from the well-known Cards Against Humanity to more obscure games like Malifaux, which involves mini figurines like the ones pictured above. Not sure what to play or want to try something new? Head to the front desk for a game recommendation and take it to the cafe to enjoy over food and drinks with friends.

If you have suggestions of uniquely Seattle things to do, hit reply and let us know.
Be sure to check each of these event pages in case there are cancellations due to the weather.

Gawk at pretty leaves: Bring your cameras and your family to the Maple Viewing Festival where there will be taiko drum performances, maple tree scavenger hunts and a live samurai sword demonstration. [10 to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Seattle Japanese Garden, free with garden admission of $6]

Get to know...Iceland? Yup: This four-day festival of Icelandic culture highlights food and fashion and features Reykjavik Calling, a concert at Neumos on Saturday to honor Seattle’s across-the-pond sister city. [Check schedule for locations and pricing]

Watch stories of social justice: The Seattle Social Justice Film Festival starts today and runs through Oct. 25. This year’s themes include Black Lives Matter, Immigration, Worker Justice and Indigenous Voices. [Kicks off Friday at 6:15 p.m., various locations, screenings $7-15.]

Hear from Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston: A copy of his new memoir is included with your ticket to this conversation between Cranston and Seattle-based author Sherman Alexie. [7:30 p.m. Sunday, Benaroya Hall, remaining tickets start at $45/person]
And get those extra phone batteries charged, if you’ve got them.
