Blind Boys of Alabama

The last thing a Seattleite needs is a musical excuse to go to Bremerton. There are more opportunities to experience live music in Seattle in one night than there is in a month across the water. But for a holiday adventure, there is no more affordable sojourn than the boat to Bremerton, which, at least for now runs rather regularly and features an hour of breathtaking views of Mt. Rainier on a clear day, the best view of Seattle on any day, and plenty of Christmas lights this time of the year. Pack a Thermos filled with Harvey’s Hot Buttered Rum (made in Bremerton, btw). It’s all the warm up you need for the Blind Boys of Alabama, and a soulful celebration of some of the finer meanings of the season. CHRIS KORNELIS
