Here at EverOut, our mission is to make it easy for you to go out and have a good time in Seattle. Or at least it was, until COVID-19. We're still here letting you know about all the things you can do in Seattle, though—we've just shifted our focus to things you can do safely, while practicing social distancing, including attending virtual events and ordering takeout from local restaurants, or attending restaurants and events in-person where it's allowed. You can already find a variety of links around our site to help you stay entertained, but, if you don't know where to begin, you're in the right place. Below, we've rounded up a handy list of links to all of our pandemic-specific content.
You'll find our latest hand-picked guides to things to do and places to go in Seattle on our guides and roundups homepage.
Our one-day only event listings are also here so you don't miss out on the good stuff.
Or see our in-person homepage to browse listings for events and venues open to masked visitors.
