On stage, you’ll see regional and national touring artists cranking out everything from zydeco to honky-tonk to roots and Americana. Meanwhile, the venue itself is studded with “old timey” touches like a 34-foot bar made from antique doors and blue velvet benches collected from an old Masonic Temple. The walls are covered with photos snapped by some of the country’s best blues photographers. And to round out the juke joint experience, the kitchen pumps out Southern-style comfort food — think jambalaya and chicken gumbo — while the bar whips up cocktails named for blues legends like Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters.

Comedians Fahim Anwar & Ashley Barnhill at Parlor Live Comedy Club, Bellevue
Laugh off your Thanksgiving calories (and ditch your weird Uncle Ted) at Parlor Live Comedy Club when Fahim Anwar and Ashley Barnhill share the stage.

A regular on MTV’s “Guy Code”, he’s also been on “Californication” and was featured in Tina Fey’s “Whiskey Tango Fox Trot”. Barnhill’s dark, depressive one-liners have made her a hit on both Twitter and the stage.

The Tenors: “Christmas Together Tour” at Benaroya Hall – S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium, Seattle
Imagine the heartwarming melodies of a pop hit sung with the so-beautiful-you-could-cry harmonies of a piece of sacred choral music by Handel (you know, the “Hallelujah!” guy). That’s the enchanting blend you get from The Tenors, three guys with some serious pipes — and the multiplatinum album sales to prove it. But they’ve also got some serious cred: they’ve performed on “Oprah” — with Celine Dion, no less — and for the Queen of England at her Diamond Jubilee. And their male fans aren’t too shabby, either — Paul McCartney? Neil Young? They’ve sung a harmony or two together. Enjoy The Tenors’ “Christmas Together Tour” at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall.
