It’s difficult to miss, with its multicolored flags strung across the patio and the portrait of a traditional Mexican woman on the sign. Nana’s on Queen Anne opened last month on Aug. 6.

  • THE BOOK MARK | Three books to make you ponder for September
    September has brought us a literary feat, a new perspective on data collection and a kids’ book with a clever role reversal. Enjoy! 
  • The Little Lemon Drops Junior Guild — which includes Queen Anne members Sydney Kaplan, 14, Audrey Rogerson, 12, and Charlotte Rogerson, 14 — is hosting an outdoor-movie night and raffle on Saturday, Sept. 6, to benefit Seattle Children’s hospital. 
  • Magnolia native Francie Warnekros’ fourth-annual Putt Cancer in the Hole mini-golf tournament will take place at the Interbay Golf Center on Sept. 13, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. 
  • For one night only, the streets of Uptown will become a film set for four artists from the German-British art collective Gob Squad, who are on a mission: to make everyday life as passionate and thrilling as a Hollywood blockbuster. 
  • Get involved with your neighborhood this week with events like the Interbay P-Patch fundraiser dinner and Magnolia/Queen Anne District Council meeting. 
  • After a sold-out world premiere at the 40th-annual Seattle International Film Festival, “Song of the New Earth” will return to Seattle on Friday, Aug. 29, for an exclusive week-long run at the SIFF Cinema Uptown. 
  • A sequel to his “The Trip” from 2010, Michael Winterbottom’s “The Trip to Italy” is an example of how minimalistic comedy can be done well. 
  • It’s difficult to not let a smile creep onto your face whenever the titular character of Frank (Michael Fassbender) comes on screen in Lenny Abrahamson’s quirky Sundance standout “Frank.” 
  • Local artists taking center stage at Bumbershoot
    Make plans this Labor Day weekend to watch a group of zombie impersonators, nationally recognized comedians, a country rock band and a Shakespeare improvisational troupe. 
  • Playing to the audience
    At an impromptu evening concert on Aug. 18, Puget Sound Strings performed the overture to “The Barber of Seville,” among other selections, at Queen Anne’s Kerry Park. 
  • Pagliacci Pizza is nearly done with the remodel, turning its Magnolia delivery location (1614 W. Dravus St.) into a full restaurant. 
  • A list of free community events happening this week in Queen Anne and Magnolia. 
  • Pierce Brosnan gets to relive his James Bond glory days in Roger Donaldson’s “The November Man,” as Peter Devereaux, a former CIA operative who’s called out of retirement for one last mission. 
  • I’ve never been a great admirer of Robert Rodriguez. Like Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese and Jean-Luc Godard, the 46-year-old, Texas-born filmmaker is a self-taught “student of cinema,” a one-man crew. 
  • Liquor license updates and information for Queen Anne and Magnolia. 
  • The Steve Griggs Ensemble will perform “A Cup of Joe Brazil,” a program of original music and narration about jazz saxophonist Joe Brazil, in a free concert at the Queen Anne Library on Sunday, Aug. 24, at 2 p.m. 
  • Based on the book by Gayle Forman, R.J Cutler’s “If I Stay” is really two movies in one. The first is about the blossoming love between a shy cello player and a cool, leather jacket-wearing hunk in a rock band. 
  • QA author Daheim brings mysteries closer to home
    Local author Mary Daheim has just published “Clam Wake,” bringing her total to more than 60 books. She writes at night in her Queen Anne home and includes the essence of the neighborhood in one of her series.
