FRIDAY, MARCH 21 2014 >>>

1. Jack and Diane sucked on chili dogs outside the Tastee-Freeze. Danny and Sandy, they went strollin' and drank lemonade. And you? Was it over something in a cone or on a stick, deep-fried or double-dipped? Were you roadside or seaside, at a stand or a shack, a hut, a cart, a parlor, a fountain or an emporium? How many of you became foodies not while nibbling foie gras at some haute downtown hot spot, but as a teenager hanging out at the annual Puyallup Rotary Crab and Oyster Stew Feed? Ready to revisit it? The Rotarians offer all-you-can-eat Dungeness crab, clam chowder, oyster stew, potato soup, coleslaw, potato salad and, of course, hot dogs. Expect a DJ, raffle prizes and impromptu Four Way Tests at 6 p.m. at the Washington State Fairgrounds.

2. The Grand Cinema has long been a ground zero of cinematic art in Tacoma, and that title has only grown with the addition of its fourth screen. With that new screen, The Grand Cinema is able to showcase films every Tuesday that would otherwise not be able to sustain a full week run. Here is where the Documentary Week comes in.

3. Raised in Scandinavia, independent quirky folk meets alternative rock on a day off getting lost Annie Woodward will perform at 8 p.m. in Metronome Coffee in Tacoma.

4. Armed with washboards, spoons, buckets and banjos, slide and stomp, Portland's junkbox blues duo Hillstomp bring an assault of high-energy backwoods punk. How the hell does a person yell harmonious twang without sounding like a drunken hillbilly? Maybe the duo do sound like drunken hillbillies. For this talented twosome, it's charming. Local draw Oly Mountain Boys adds their bluegrass flair to the 9 p.m. show at the new Rhythm and Rye club in downtown Olympia.

5. With big beats and playful narratives, San Francisco's Double Duchess transcends genres and genders through their live experience and high-energy delivery. Catch the duo's 9 p.m. show at Le Voyeur.
