5 Things To Do Today: Best of Olympia Party and some other stuff

BEST OF OLYMPIA PARTY: Kick up your heels with us at the Capitol Theater.

WEDNESDAY, FEB. 20 2013 >>>

1. Don't even act like you're not going, Olympians. The Weekly Volcano is celebrating this week's third Best of Olympia issue by blowing the roof off the Capitol Theater, beginning at 6 p.m. No cover. Beer and wine in the balcony. Live music by DJ Joel, Mosquito Hawk and Science! TUSH! Burlesque troupe will grace the stage three times during the night. Thurston County's best and brightest. A killer raffle. The Best of Olympia issue in your hot little hands a day before it hits the street. And, best of all, your favorite local Volcano "celebrities," including the cool chick who bartends, the guy in the hip-hop band and that dude related to John Grisham. 

2. "Tacomapocalypse" is now in its third year, morphing just a tad with each incarnation. The first "Tacomapocalypse" focused on zombies and destruction. The second took a tongue-in-cheek look at the end of the world. "Tacomapocalypse III" in turn is centered on what has lived through the end of days and what that recovery might look like. So if you need a little boost getting over your end-of-the-world fretting from last year, think of "Tacomapocalypse" as a little bit of unconventional therapy. The show hangs at the Amocat Café.

3. The Tanked for Tortoises event tonight at the Parkway Tavern will raise money to help the Madagascar Biodiversity Project and the Radiated Tortoise Project. Every 50 cents spent on beer, cider and wine between 6 and 10 p.m. will go toward helping our friends the tortoises.

4. Dorky's Bar Arcade in downtown Tacoma hosts Trivis for Dorks every Wednesday night at 8 p.m. Weekly Volcano scribe Nikki McCoy has the scoop here.

5. Play bingo with those not just killing time before the Grim Reaper calls their number. Every Wednesday at 9 p.m. inside The New Frontier, bingo players are treated to a rather boisterous evening of number-calling. The music rocks, the prizes are craptastic and there's something very satisfying about yelling "It's not a tumor!" when B-9 is pulled from the hopper (Schwarzenegger anyone?). Sessions are free with $2 margaritas during bingo. Every Wednesday night is also Taco Night with $1 beef, $1 black bean and $2 chicken in soft or crunchy shells.

5 Things To Do Today: "Shift Change" film, Dance competition with Derek Hough, Noble Rot tasting and more ...

"SHIFT CHANGE": The documentary tells true stories of dignified jobs in Democratic workplaces.

WEDNESDAY, FEB. 6 2013 >>>

1. Did you know the United Nations declared 2012 to be the International Year of the Cooperative? The UN based its statement on the co-op business model's stunning growth. The UN found that, in 2012, one billion people worldwide were co-op member-owners, or one in five adults over the age of 15. The largest is Spain's Mondragon Corporation, with more than 80,000 member-owners. The UN predicts that by 2025, worker-owned co-ops will be the world's fastest growing business model. Back in this country, the phrase "worker cooperative" probably evokes vague notions of Communism, small-time craft vendors or the organic grocery store around the corner. Shift Change - a new documentary by Seattle area filmmakers Mark Dworkin and Melissa Young that will be screened at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. inside Tacoma's Grand Cinema - visits the more than 50 year old network of cooperative businesses in Mondragon, and thriving examples of such businesses in the U.S. - from bakeries to solar energy to linen service and engineering. Through in-depth interviews with worker-owners, attendance at co-op meetings, and visits to the factory floor, the film shares on-the-ground experience, lessons and observations from the worker-owners on the front line of the new economy, arguing that in an economy where not much is certain, it's worth considering different ways for ordinary people to join forces in the name of profit.

2. Local teens and teen dance groups submitted their videos for the dance competition hosted by MultiCare Center for Healthy Living. The videos were judged. Tonight, the three finalists will go head to head from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at MultiCare Center's 13th annual "Do Something Healthy" event inside the Greater Tacoma Convention Center.  Derek Hough from Dancing with the Stars will be the celebrity judge. "Do Something Healthy" is an evening event that includes a health fair, health screenings and a presentation by a special guest speaker.

3. Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales asks on its website, "if anyone will buy a beer with the word 'rot' in the name?" - referring to its saison-esque Noble Rot. Well, would anyone eat at a restaurant called STINK? The Rot and STINK join foces tonight when the Triangle District cheese and meat shop hosts the Delaware brewers for a Noble Rot tasting from 5-8 p.m. at $5 a head.

4. Dorky's Bar Arcade in downtown Tacoma hosts Trivis for Dorks every Wednesday night at 8 p.m. Weekly Volcano scribe Nikki McCoy has the scoop here.

5. Play bingo with those not just killing time before the Grim Reaper calls their number. Every Wednesday at 9 p.m. inside The New Frontier, bingo players are treated to a rather boisterous evening of number-calling.

TOMORROW: Trivia for Dorks in Tacoma

ACTOR ROB PATTINSON PLAYS THE PIANO. YOU'RE WELCOME. >>>

You can hate me or unfriend me or whatever, but I love the Twilight series. Edward and Bella and Jacob and sparkles and blood and fast cars are all magic to me. I know I'm not the only one out there who feels this way.

Dorky's Bar Arcade in Tacoma knows there are many who live for Twilight's gleeful decapitations and fang-on-fang showdowns. That's why last week the downtown Tacoma bar + arcade focused its weekly trivia session - Trivia for Dorks - on the vampire melodrama.

Held every Wednesday at 8 p.m., Trivia for Dorks is a free, all-ages affair with such prizes as gift certificates to Dorky's. Sure, prizes are nice, but even better is dropping your win at your next round table D & D discussion.

"I generally write questions about the kind of pop culture people really nerd-out about," says Nathan Ketzner, host and a glasses wearing nerd-extraordinaire. "I think my busiest night was when I did all Star Trek questions."

This Wednesday the categories will be Nintendo, Animal Friends/Sidekicks, The Walking Dead TV show/comics and Superheroines. Oh Emmett Cullen! I forgot that teams could earn bonus points for correctly identifying the theme.

DORKY'S BAR ARCADE, TRIVIA FOR DORKS, 8 P.M. WEDNESDAY, 754 PACIFIC AVE., TACOMA, 253.627.4156

5 Things To Do Today: "The Other Son," John Carlos, Geeks Who Drink and more ...

"THE OTHER SON": Two young men in Israel - one Jewish, one Arab - discover they were switched at birth.

TUESDAY, JAN. 22 2013 >>>

1. It's Tuesday, which means another bonus film will be screened at The Grand Cinema. Today's film is The Other Son, the story of 18-year-old Joseph, of Tel Aviv, who signs up for his Israeli army service, he's given a blood test — and some shocking news: He's not his parents' biological child. In the chaos of being born the night in 1991 when the Iraqis lobbed Scud missiles at Israel, baby Joseph was accidentally switched with baby Yacine, an Arab boy. Yacine grows up in the occupied West Bank, the successful son of proud working-class parents. Discover what happens next at1:30 and 8:15 p.m.

2. The work of longtime Tacoma artist and educator Bill Colby is featured in a new exhibition at the Tacoma Public Library's Handforth Gallery at the downtown Main Library. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

3. Forty-five years ago John Carlos and Tommie Smith raised black-gloved fist in the air and the whole world took note. That image remains indelible even today. The event was the Olympics in Mexico City. Smith had won the gold medal in the 200 meter race and Carlos had won bronze. They mounted the victory stand and raised their fists in a black power salute as a statement about how far the United States still had to go in its struggle for full civil rights. It was one of the most overtly political statements ever made in the Olympics. Carlos and Smith were called heroes by some, traitors by others. at 7 p.m., in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day John Carlos will give a free talk at University of Puget Sound Schneebeck Concert Hall. The evening will include comments by local and campus leaders and music by Navele Davis and Friends. A reception and a book signing by Carlos, author of The John Carlos Story: The Sports Moment That Changed the World, will follow. Tickets are not required. Read Alec Clayton's interview with John Carlos in the Weekly Volcano's Arts section.

4. Located in the heart of Tacoma's Sixth Avenue, Metronome's open mic is where you will see old Sears/Roebuck guitars and tight corduroy pants. A very dynamic open mic, you will hear a wide variety of music, and will be among an attentive audience of listeners. Hosted every Tuesday from 7 p.m. until closing, Metronome Coffee is a great place to spend your midweek night out and enjoy some great coffee.

5. Tacoma Cabana tiki bar will host the Geeks Who Drinks trivia game at 8 p.m. The game consists of eight rounds of eight questions and is played in teams of up to six people. Questions are read aloud by the quizmaster; teams write their answers on provided sheets and turn them in at the end of each round. The team with the most points after eight rounds is the winner.

5 Things To Do Today: Miss Massive Snowflake, Bill Colby, "The Mountain Runners," Geeks Who Drink and more ...

MISS MASSIVE SNOWFLAKE: Not cutesy indie rock.

TUESDAY, JAN. 15 2-13 >>>

1. The band called Miss Massive Snowflake plays jumpy, art-damaged pop similar to the mid '80s work of Talking Heads, as well as the loopily shifting tempos of bands like Menomena or a sunnier Dirty Projectors. This is a band that writes songs that function like short stories is more of a bonus to fervent listeners, as opposed to the quirkily catchy rhythms and melodies that are instantly grabbing. Flares of polyrhythms and electronic textures round out and give depth to a band that might otherwise skate by on effortless hooks. Catch Miss Massive snowflake at 10 p.m. inside Le Voyeur in Olympia.

2. The work of longtime Tacoma artist and educator Bill Colby is featured in a new exhibition at the Tacoma Public Library's Handforth Gallery at the downtown Main Library. The gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

3. It's Tuesday, which means another bonus film will be screened at The Grand Cinema. Today's film is The Mountain Runners, the story of what is thought to be the first adventure races in the United States - a contest of certain insanity, held from 1911 to 1913, pitting modified Model A cars against a train and runners up the slippery slopes of Mount Baker. Discover what happens at 2 and 6:30 p.m.

4. Located in the heart of Tacoma's Sixth Avenue, Metronome's open mic is where you will see old Sears/Roebuck guitars and tight corduroy pants. A very dynamic open mic, you will hear a wide variety of music, and will be among an attentive audience of listeners.

5 Things To Do Today: Teardropcity, "Teddy Bear," Geeks Who Drink, Classical Tuesday and more ...

TEARDROPCITY: Bringing 400-year-old hip-hop to Olympia. Photo courtesy of Facebook

TUESDAY, JAN. 8 2013 >>>

1. To reductively describe what Matt Wheeler, AKA Teardropcity, does, his music sort of sounds like a hip-hop/country hybrid with vocals that sound straight out of Beat Happening. But let's let the Olympia local describe it himself. "I have several catch-phrases that I use to describe it, the first being ‘music for late nights and early mornings,'" says Wheeler. "The second being ‘contemporary American music from the future past,' the third being ‘400-year-old hip-hop,' the fourth being ‘avant garde music for the masses.' ... I think that's all of them. Sort of a combination of those."Teardropcity joins No Sky Project at 10 p.m. inside Le Voyeur in Olympia. Read Rev. Adam McKinney's full feature on Teardropcity in the Weekly Volcano's Music section.

2. It's Tuesday, which means another bonus film will be screened at The Grand Cinema. Today's film is Teddy Bear, an Austrian film about a weightlifter at the waning end of his career who still lives at home with his overbearing mother, a tiny woman who tells him exactly what he can and can't do. All he really wants to do is find a girlfriend, but he's painfully shy. Discover what happens at 2:05 and 7:05 p.m.

3. Conventional wisdom dictates that you'd rather spend Tuesday night watching the ION Channel and sharing a big bowl of prune whip with your great aunt Martha than venturing out to hear a band comprised of drums, marimba, congas and found sounds. But in this case, conventional wisdom would be wrong. Unless, of course, you're a big fan of Criminal Minds. Tonight, Saxophonist Erik Steighner will perform on alto, baritone and soprano saxes as part of the Classical Tuesday series at the Slavonian Hall in Old Town Tacoma. Trumpeter Zachary Lyman will join him for the 7 p.m. concert.

4. Located in the heart of Tacoma's Sixth Avenue, Metronome's open mic is where you will see old Sears/Roebuck guitars and tight corduroy pants. A very dynamic open mic, you will hear a wide variety of music, and will be among an attentive audience of listeners. Hosted every Tuesday from 7 p.m. until closing, Metronome Coffee is a great place to spend your midweek night out and enjoy some great coffee.

Geeks Who Drink to drink strong exotic drinks

HOLLAND HUME: He's serious about his Geeks Who Drink game.

NOW WITH MORE MAI TAIS >>>

A big change is afoot in Geeks Who Drink land.

As you have noticed, the Geeks Who Drink trivia game has disappeared from Paddy Coyne's. The downtown Tacoma Irish bar told Quizmaster Holland Hume, or as the teams at Paddy Coyne's called him - Holland the Wonder Boy, to grab his quiz sheets and leave. Standing outside the pub, Hume glances across the street and saw Tacoma Cabana's great big smiley aloha. One, two four, Hume had a score. The tiki bar will host the Geeks Who Drinks trivia game every Tuesday beginning Jan. 8.

The nationwide quiz game - held in several venues in Olympia and Tacoma - consists of eight rounds of eight questions and is played in teams of up to six people. Questions are read aloud by the quizmaster; teams write their answers on provided sheets and turn them in at the end of each round. The team with the most points after eight rounds is the winner.

"The Tacoma Cabana game will be the standard Geeks Who Drink formula, which is a two-hour live MC event," explains Quizmaster Hume. "There are eight rounds in the night. One is a visual handout that is given at the beginning of the quiz, two are audio rounds - one usually music-related and one usually movie/TV-related - and the other five are read by me over the mic. In addition to first and second place prizes - which will be in the form of gift certificates good for the next visit - there are five bonus prizes scattered throughout the night that each equate to a free beer."

The Tuesday night Geeks Who Drink game will be held in Tacoma Cabana's tropically tricked-out backroom, as to not interfere with the front room's enjoyment of Gilligan's Island re-runs and peaceful Zombie cocktail drinking.

I quizzed the quizmaster on his past games.

WEEKLY VOLCANO: What were your favorite moments from Paddy Coyne's game?

HOLLAND HUME: As much as a cop out answer as it is, it's hard to pick one moment. The quiz itself is very much a social gathering. The structure lends itself to countless repeat visits, and I run it with a focus on player interaction. We would be nothing without our quizzers' support, so I try to make them a part of the evening.  We celebrate birthdays and weddings. We have special theme nights with bonus prizes. I work to make it less a "two hour event" and more a "weekly gathering."

Our one-year anniversary quiz was pretty amazing. My scorekeeper and I dressed in drag - black evening gowns - and had lots of bonus prizes. Also, the then-manager Rory did a fantastic cross-promotion job and got us support from some local breweries for the evening. It was a pretty amazing night.  Halloween has also been a fun quiz night. Halloween is the only holiday I really care about, so I try to play it up at the quiz.  I encourage people to dress up and give awards - usually terrible horror movies inspired by the Tacoma Cult Movie Club - based on different categories.

VOLCANO: Was there a trivia night at Paddy Coyne's you wish you could take back?

HUME: Back when I first started, and was still wet behind the ears as far a Quizmaster/drunk crowd controller, I went along with an idea that involved a special cash prize, assuming people could and would police themselves. It was a nightmare. There was rampant cheating from several teams, finger pointing and slander-throwing from half the teams. I received lots of negative feedback. In the end, we lost the support of three veteran teams. I had to spend weeks rebuilding the trust of the remaining teams. It helped me develop my quiz mastering skills quickly and taught me a lot - most notably, cash prizes are generally a terrible and often desperate idea). Ultimately if I could hit a giant "redo" button I would have handled that night much differently.

VOLCANO: Is there an individual or group that is heads and shoulders above everyone else?

HUME: About two-thirds of our teams are repeat players, but we have a few that have been playing anywhere from six months to the entirety of the quizzes lifespan. Of those teams, we have two teams that tend to win more often than others. They always change their name, but I often call them "The Political Team" and "The Beard Team." You would think having the same teams win over and over would turn people off from playing, but really it adds another incentive. If you win you not only get a gift card, but also you beat "those guys." It's an extra level of satisfaction that can be shared by the whole bar.

TACOMA CABANA, TUESDAYS, 8 P.M., NO COVER, 728 PACIFIC AVE., TACOMA, 253.222-4184

12 Beers of Christmas coming to Tacoma

HARMON TAP ROOM: You must have a beer a day. There are worse things in life.

FUTURE THINGS ARE COMING >>>

The warm and fuzzy feeling you get when in good company, complimented by a delicious and unique local beer, is what makes the Harmon Tap Room's 12 Beers of Christmas a worthy holiday merriment.

Dec 13-24, The Harmon Taproom is hosting 12 days of 12 different beers for customers to imbibe. If beer-lovers enjoy a brew for each of the 12 days, they will receive a complimentary engraved mug.

"I was just looking for something fun to do," says brewer Jeff Carlson. "Throughout the year people get excited about certain beers, and instead of making more, I hid them away. Now I can bring them out and let everyone relive their memories and drink the fancy stuff they've been dreaming about."

For some reason, the holiday lyrics "visions of sugar plums danced in their heads," just danced through my head. See, the thoughts of extra special beers are already invoking the spirit of the season.

While sugar plum beer is not on the menu, Sour Cherry ESB/Amber and Raspberry Blonde are. Oak aged Vanilla Porter and Candy Cane will also be on tap. Expect to also taste St. Helen's Anniversary IPA, Striker Stout and an Imperial infused with coconut.

Expect to also bump into Carlson, who says part of the fun of the event is making new friends.

"I will be here and around," he says. "Come say hi and share a beer."

Be sure to pick up the Weekly Volcano's print edition Thursday for the inside scoop on the 12 Beers of Christmas, as well as other local brew thoughts, from Harmon Brewing co-owner Pat Nagle.
