SUNDAY, JUNE 15 2014 >>>

1. Chef Riley Morgan will release his summer menu at 1022 South J on Hilltop Tacoma. The Southern-raised Morgan has created a Northwest meets Southeast menu, adding a Northwest touch to deviled eggs, pulled pork, collard greens, grits and other Southern staples. He's taking Southern flavors and airing them out for summer. For the full story on the new menu, click here. The new menu will debut toward the end of next week. New cocktails will be added in conjunction with the summer menu. Gone are the hot drinks, replaced with patio drinks, including whatever Morgan calls his new mojito, with mint leaves he grew, smoked infused rum, lime zest poured over smoked ice into a smoked glass. Smojito? The 1022 South J will send off its spring menu in style, hosting its one-year anniversary party Sunday, June 16. Launching at 4 p.m., happy hour prices will remain until close, plus food and drink specials.

2. This year why not give Dad the gift of something delicious and local. The Harmon Tap Room presents a "Father's Day Brewery Tour & Tasting" from noon to 4 p.m. For $20, Dad may tour Harmon's brewery operation, and then enjoy five small plates paired with beer. Reserve Dad a spot at 253.212.2725.

3. With music and lyrics by the Grammy Award-winning team of Eric Idle and John Du Prez and book by Idle, SPAMALOT tells the story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they embark on their quest for the Holy Grail. At 2 p.m. in the Lakewood Playhouse, expect to see flying cows, killer rabbits, taunting Frenchmen, and show-stopping musical numbers, including "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life," make for a very Monty Python telling of the Camelot legend.

4. The Swiss Restaurant and Pub hosts a fundraising music and burlesque show at 8 p.m. The goal is to raise money to help the fight against breast cancer in honor of Aunt Lisa who passed away last September. There will be awesome raffle prizes, burlesques dancers Funny Face Fanny, Heather Hostility, Rosie Cheex and bands Noi!se, Rat Path, Crooks To Kings and Overboard. There will be a cover charge at the door; all profits go directly to the Susan G. Komen under the team name, Survivor Chick's Breast Friends.

5. Calvin Johnson has long been one of the weirder ducks in local music. He played a large role in not only popularizing Olympia and its vibrant music scene, but also helping to set the tone of the city's musical output in general, with his lo-fi alt-rock group Beat Happening and his founding of K Records. The Hive Dwellers is Johnson's most recent project, and it finds him continuing down that weird path he set for himself back in the '80s. His guttural monotone is still front and center, and his arrangements are exceedingly off-kilter. Catch the band with The Shivas and Panduhs at 8 p.m. in Northern.
