SATURDAY, NOV. 10, 2012 >>>

1. The Patrons of South Sound Cultural Arts and Friends of the Olympia Library are teaming up for their annual POSSCA Art Sale at the Olympia Armory. Meet local artists and find holiday gifts such as jewelry, photography, paintings, glass and pottery. "We believe that a thriving arts scene is an excellent barometer for quality of life in our community," states the POSSCA website. "When the arts scene is alive and dynamic, we believe it has a profound and positive impact on education, business and private life."Well said POSSCA, well said. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., $1, Olympia Armory, 515 Eastside St. SE, Olympia

2. When kids choose what instrument they'd like to play, few of them pick the euphonium, which looks like an undersized tuba and is generally relegated to a supporting role in the rare jazz ensembles that include it. Tacoman Jason Gilliam attempts to prove that such pigeonholing is unjustified by repeatedly putting the euphonium in the spotlight, including a recital tonight at Tacoma Community College. 6 p.m., donations, TCC Building 2, 6501 S. 19th St., Tacoma

3. Wingman Brewers invites Mash Homebrewing to its tasting room for Mash Night. Wingman brewed a Cascadian Dark Ale with Jason, the owner of Mash, and a Barleywine with Matt, who frequents the homebrew supply shop.  Both beers will be on tap all weekend, along with their recipes.  Expect a raffle. 6-11 p.m., no cover, Wingman Brewers, 509 ½ Puyallup Ave., Tacoma

4. The Northwest Sinfonietta presents Cecile Licad's "hair-raising virtuosity and consciousness-expanding introspection" (Los Angeles Times) as she performs Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 2. Program will also feature Stravinsky's delightful Pulcinella Suite based on the Commedia dell'Arte characters of Italy and more. 7:30 p.m., $19-$49, Rialto Theater, 310 S. Ninth St., Tacoma

5. The Kareem Kandi Band will fill Doyle's Public House with a mixture of jazz and funk. 9:30 p.m., no cover, 208 Saint Helens Ave., Tacoma
