ZomBcon. A three day fan fest for zombie devotees, this convention will bring stars from "The Walking Dead" and "True Blood" to the SeaTac Hilton. A UC Berkeley neuroscientist will talk about "scanning the zombie brain" and a makeup artist will attendees how to achieve that undead look for Halloween -- or just for walking around.

"Luminous: The Art of Asia." This is a luscious new Seattle Art Museum exhibition that spotlights the museum's impressive collection of Asian art. It includes everything from traditional Chinese bronzes to a new, contemporary video installation by Korean artist Do Ho Suh. Also, plan ahead for SAM Remix next Friday night, the 28th -- that's when the downtown museum stays open late for a giant party, with music and activities on every floor. Just 20 bucks gains entry to "Luminous," all the other exhibitions and activities.
