1. The Tacoma Cult Movie Club presents "what the $%@! is that?" - a night of outlandish monsters films, as well as the typical trailers, educational shorts, a chapter from a serial, and of course, their own personal form of life support, the raffle. It all goes down at 7 p.m. inside the Acme Grub Cage in Tacoma.

2. The 97-year-old schooner Adventuress is owned and operated by the nonprofit organization Sound Experience, which has spent the last two decades educating, inspiring and empowering youth and adults to care for Puget Sound. From 9 a.m. to noon it will be docked at the Jerisch City Dock in Gig Harbor for a public sail and free dockside tours.

3. To most Americans impressionist art means the art of a small group of late 19th century French artists. But an expanded definition of the movement includes earlier and later works, plus art from other parts of Europe and even America. The Movement of Impressionism: Europe, America, and the Northwest at Tacoma Art Museum offers an impressive sampling of this expanded movement from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Read our full review here.

4. Dockside Bistro and Wine Bar hosts pianist and composer Scott Cossu along with drummer Steve Banks and violinist Jessica Blinn. Scott's trio from 7-10 p.m.

5. Olympia's swing dance night with authentic swing music happens every Sunday at the Urban Onion Ballroom with dancing at 7:30 p.m. and a free beginning swing dance lesson at 7 p.m.
