5 Things To Do Today: Girls night out, The Young Creative, Hump Day Jam and more ...

By Volcano Staff on November 7, 2012

WEDNESDAY, NOV. 7, 2012 >>>

1. Girls Night Out = Guys Night Out. You don't have to be a math wiz to realize the logic of this equation.  If the girls have gathered, then the guys might want to hang, too. Tonight from 5-7 p.m. the girls will be at the Jewel Kade Fall Jewelry Show at Morso Wine Bar in Gig Harbor.

2. The Tacoma Visitor Information Center is more than just a location for visitors to gather information about what to do and see in the area. The VIC, in partnership The Young Creative, is also art gallery featuring the work of Tacoma's young artists. The gallery will open to the public today as part of Tacoma's Art at Work Month.

3. A good man in a G-string is hard to find. Sure, it's reasonably easy to persuade someone to pose for a drawing, but even if an artist's friends and loved ones are willing to pose in the name of art, they'll soon find that it takes exceptional patience to remain frozen in place for hours on end. Life painting is one of art's most time-honored traditions, though, and there will always be a stream of aspiring Renoirs and Vermeers eager to give it a shot ... including tonight at the Tacoma Academy of Fine Arts. The studio offers an open session figure drawing class from 6:30-8:30 p.m. for $15 in the Merlino Art Center at 508 S. Sixth Ave. To reserve an easel, email tim.mansen@gmail.com.

4. See dance as you've never seen it before - trouncing through a bookstore! Tonight at 7 p.m. inside King's Books, the BareFoot Collective will take to the shelves and deliver a unique performance in a unique venue that is just about the opposite of a formal theater in every way.  

5. Do you like the classic rock? Classic rock band Tatoosh hosts an open Hump Day Jam every Wednesday at 9 p.m. inside Stonegate Pizza.
