1. Stadium Thriftway hosts its infamous Lobster Drop beginning at 10 a.m. The bad boys of the ocean floor will be on sale for $9.99 a pound - cooked or live - while supplies last.

2. Tacoma Art Place celebrates Arts Crush will a full day of free visual art workshops for adults and children in a variety of media and techniques; members work for sale, refreshments, and a raffle of artwork, services and TAP membership from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

3. Speaking of Arts Crush, Madera Architectural Elements opens up its showroom from 6-9 p.m. for the area arts festival hosting the free-ambient, roots and nujazz music of the Gnostic Scribblers.

4. Freighthouse Square's Black Lake Haunted Asylum has made it into its third year of operation with a twisted re-enactment of an old Black Lake Asylum legend.  As you slowly traipse through the asylum's dark maze, following closely behind a zombified escort, anticipation can almost overwhelm you.  Check it out from 6-11 p.m.

5. DJ Mauro ups the fog machine, hypes the crowd in Spanish and spins his unique mix of Latin-infused music beginning at 9 p.m. inside the South Hill Mazatlan restaurant.
