The Weekend Guide

street treats!

A full plate.

Capitol Hill Night Market Launches
A six-truck food mart with street eats to satisfy your late-night hunger pangs.

When: Sat., 9 p.m.-3 a.m.
Where: 1504 Harvard Ave.

DIY: Natural Household Cleaners
Certified nutritional therapist Carmen King leads a two-hour lesson ($12) in making enviro-friendly concoctions at vintage space Cairo.
Why: Because they smell better, save you cash, and are good to your skin and lungs; the store-bought stuff lurking under your sink is toxic.

Where: 507 E. Mercer St. (206-453-4077). Reserve a spot in advance by stopping by the shop with payment.

Japanese Whiskey Tasting

When: Sat., 5 p.m.
Where: 722 Pine St. R.S.V.P. (required) to 206-467-7777. Cost is $35 (a portion of which will be donated to Ishinomaki, Japan, where the cafe owner’s wife is from).

Coa Mexican Eatery & Tequileria Opens
