TGIF!

1. Bring your picnic supper and the whole family and participate in games, music and dancing of the mid-1800s during 19th Century Family Night at Fort Nisqually in Point Defiance Park. Kids of all ages will enjoy the special firings of the Candy Cannon throughout the evening. Lemonade and ice cream will be available while supplies last.6-9 pm, Free with membership or admission, $6-$7.50, 5400 N. Pearl Street, Tacoma.

2. Have you ever stood in an old cemetery and thought, "How I wish these stones could talk"? The Fort Nisqually Time Travelers, a select group of living history re-enactors, had that same thought. Together with the Tacoma Cemeteries and Tacoma Historical Society they invite you to experience Tacoma's history as it comes to life in a unique, fascinating way at the Fourth Annual Living History Cemetery Tour. Eight reenactors will portray people who had an impact on our history as they share their life stories from their grave sites. This year, we celebrate the railroad, boats and trails of all varieties that have had a great influence on Tacoma with our theme, “Rails, Trails and Sails”. Tours last one hour and start every 20 minutes. advanced tickets are required ($8) and available Tuesday through Saturday at the Cemetery, (253) 472-3369. *As the cemetery ground is often uneven, comfortable walking shoes are encouraged. 6-7:40 pm Fri, 5:40-7:40 pm Sat. Tacoma Cemetery: 4801 South Tacoma Way, Tacoma.

3. West Side Story in the park...Bring your lawn, blanket or sleeping bag. Dress warm. Free popcorn and sodas provided. Movies begin at sundown. Donkey Creek Park
8714 North Harborview Drive, Gig Harbor.

4. Summer wine tasting at Safeway is a great way to spend happy hour today. Bring a friend to try Waterbrook Melange Noir, Waterbrook Sauvignon Blanc, and Waterbrook Chardonnay. Ask the wine department Steward Jennifer Elkins at the store how to compliment your next summer picnic outing or dinner menus from our fine wine selection. 3-7 pm. Safeway: 2411 North Proctor, Tacoma.

5. We are hearing really good things about the Kids At Play production of Little Shop of Horrors at Capital Playhouse in Olympia.  7 pm. $15. www.capitalplayhouse.com/buy.
