U-M Seattle

Lassi & Spice

Alumna Susannah Dhamdhere, MBA class of ’06, recently left a longtime role with Starbucks to strike out on her own. She opened the doors to Lassi & Spice, her Indian-fusion café, just two months ago and would love to welcome in Seattle alumni and future UM students. Lassi & Spice is located at 423 Fairview Ave N, and is open 7 days a week serving incredible chai, espresso, lassis (Indian yogurt smoothies) and delicious small plates featuring Indian street food flavors.

U-M Seattle Summer Picnic

Hope you can join us for our picnic at Carkeek Park! U-M Alumni and prospective Wolverines of all ages are welcome! The club will be providing food and drink, and we’ll have activities as well! We have a beautiful location overlooking the water, with nearby trails and play areas for younger children. . E-mail Michael Roberto if any questions.

Paint and Sip

Don’t miss our upcoming event: Painting with Tipsy Foxx at Teku Tavern in Belltown/SLU area! Come join your fellow alumni on Sunday, February 17 from 2:00-4:00pm for a private painting session led by a local artist. We will each be painting a custom, one-of-a-kind painting of University of Michigan’s Diag featuring the Grad Library!

Community Service Day

This is a great opportunity to enjoy some of our spring weather, to meet some of your fellow Wolverines, and to contribute to a worthy community effort! We’ve arranged to help restore some of our native forest habitat at a park in Seattle (which is currently being held hostage by evil, invasive alien species bent on total domination of our green spaces!).

Club Looking for Volunteers

The U-M Club of Seattle is looking for some new volunteers, to help with several aspects of our club’s operations, and for possible participation on our board in the coming operating year. Board members are elected at our annual meeting in May, for terms starting in July.

We’re looking for people to help with fundraising for our club scholarship, as well as general planning, coordination and hosting of club events, as well as club communications via website postings and emails.

Big Ten Ballard Brewery Outing

With 11 breweries in just 5 square miles, Ballard has become a tourist destination for beer. In fact, Ballard is home to more breweries than any other Seattle or Portland neighborhood. If you include Fremont and other next door neighborhoods, there are 19 breweries!

Join your local Big Ten alums for an outing to visit five of these breweries over four hours. We’ll be stopping for 45 minutes at each location. There’s no fee to join, and no registration required. Feel free to join us for as much of the outing as you’d like!

Annual Meeting

Don’t miss our club’s annual meeting! This happy hour and meeting is your opportunity to meet fellow Wolverines, find out more about the Seattle club, and perhaps even learn how you can play a part in helping to shape the activities and presence of our club over the coming year. Happy Hour starts at 6:00, with your club providing hearty free appetizers for all attendees, with the meeting starting at 7:00.
