4. Tacoma eco-celeb SolaRichard, known for his bigger than life hats and tireless work to further the use of solar energy, calls our hydroelectric power a "green-washing" of our energy problem.

5. The Banned Book Club at will gather at 7 p.m. inside the Tempest Lounge to toss back tasty cocktails and discuss Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer.
