1. When's the last time someone read you a story? If it's been a while, check out the latest Creative Colloquy session at 7 p.m. in the B Sharp Coffee House. This installment of the wonderfully satisfying monthly storytelling series centers on the YA genre. Featured yarns will be spun by New York Times Best Selling author Marissa Meyer, Michaela Eaves, Brook Ellen West, Karen Harris Tully and the winner of CC's Youth Writer Contest. As usual, all scribes are encouraged to attend and read their works, to test the prose or read finished work. Reading opportunities are available on a first come, first sign up basis and authors are asked to keep content performance at 5-minute maximum.

2. According to Fed Up, the latest from writer-director Stephanie Soechtig, Oscar-winning producer Laurie David and Katie Couric, (who also narrates the film), sugar reigns supreme among the most corruptive comestibles lining shelves and plates across America, not to mention our digestive tracts and circulatory systems. And according to this documentary, we eat a lot of it, whether we know it or not. Read Jared Lovrak's full review of the film on our Served in the South Sound blog, then catch it at 2, 4:20 and 9:05 p.m. at The Grand Cinema.

3. Dean Reichert's soulful voice carries in it the history of American popular music: There's the down-home rhythm and testifying punch of gospel-based R&B, the snarl of the blues, the mournful rumination of honky-tonk, sultry jazz and the up-front sexuality of funk. Oh, and he's a talent guitar player, too. Reichert heads to The Swiss at 8 p.m. for the Tacoma joint's longstanding blues night.

4. Local comedian and host Eric Puddin Lorentzen hosts the "Monday Madness Comedy Night with Puddin" at 9 p.m. in The New Frontier Lounge. Expect 6-10 minute sets, each recorded. The audience will choose a winner, who will headline the following week. It was the great Bill Cosby who said, "Puddin, you can't be a comedian without him," or something.

5. Singer-songwriter Chelsey Heidenreich lives and grew up in the small town of Ritzville, Wash. She brings her indie folk sound to Le Voyeur at 10 p.m.
