You made it — it's Friday!

Have you been seeing all sorts of funky fungi around your neighborhood? We know that all mushrooms are kinda magic, but the Capitol Hill Blog has a guide that walks you through the types you’ll probably see when you’re out and about. Learn about the fungus among us so you can say things like "I'm like the Fly Aminata mushroom; I want you to appreciate my beauty and then just leave me alone."

Mushroom hunting not your idea of a good time? Don't worry — there’s a bunch of cool events around Seattle coming up this weekend and we’re sharing some of our own recs for what we'll be eating, playing, and listening to at the very end of this newsletter.

Read on to see for yourself...

What Seattle is talking about

✈️ If you’ve got travel plans next week, you’re going to want to bookmark this list by Eater Seattle. They’ve rounded up the places to eat and drink in Sea-Tac and categorized them by their location in the airport. (Eater Seattle

🏞 We missed National Take a Hike Day on Wednesday — and the creator of said day missed the best time of year to take one — but Seattle Met didn’t forget. The mag rounded up five places to go for a hike during the shoulder season. (Seattle Met)

🚢 The Spirit of Seattle is returning to Puget Sound next week. After taking the year off due to the pandemic, the Christmas Ship Festival will sail again starting Friday, Nov. 26. (Seattle Pi

🦃 Garlic mashed potatoes, cranberry ricotta cake, thyme dinner rolls… These are the things Thanksgiving dreams are made of. Thanks to Seattle Pi, you now know where to get a bite of fall and the holiday all month long, starting with the fosolia from Ahadu. (Seattle Pi

🛣 Seattleites want more people-friendly streets and that’s a fact. According to a poll from the Northwest Progressive Institute (NPI), 80% of locals surveyed want infrastructure that is more pedestrian, bike, and business-friendly. About half of poll participants also agreed that the onus shouldn’t be on property owners to pay for fixing their own sidewalks. (South Seattle Emerald

🍻 Ooh yeah! The long-awaited Lariat Bar is officially open in White Center. The wrestling-themed bar is decked out in 1980s and 1990s wrestling garb — hello Randy “Macho Man” Savage and Andre the Giant — and offers games like pinball and drinks, plus there’s a mini wrestling ring. (Eater Seattle
