WEDNESDAY, JAN. 2 2013 >>>

1. After two-and-a-half years, the Tallhouse Arts Consortium is back in full swing with its first Wednesday of the month free performances at The Brotherhood Lounge in Olympia, which is tonight at 8 p.m. The aerialists, whose Facebook profile states, "Farting rhinestones since... ah, we can't even remember," will delight audiences with its strong and sturdy flips, flying and artistic trapeze. The group brings in interesting songs, unique performances, flirty fun and guest trapeze artists - all for free.

2. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Rankos Pharmacy - Stadium District's favorite historical pharmacy - is hosting a Health Fair and Open House. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, attendees can enjoy free health screenings and more. For the first 50 people who show up, there will be free gift bags loaded with health-oriented freebies. The event also promises plenty of prizes and snacks during the event. People who get one of the free or low-cost screenings will be entered into a raffle to win a Crabtree & Evelyn body product gift basket worth $100. More details can be found here.

3. Bundle up, pinch your cheeks until they glow and strap on a pair of silver skates, Hans Brinker, for a glide across the frozen expanse at Tollefson Plaza. The Franciscan Polar Plaza, located on the corner of Pacific Avenue and South 17th Street, from 4-9 p.m.

4. The Northern Pacific Coffee Company is the quintessential college hangout. Located on Parkland's Garfield Street - one block away from Pacific Lutheran University - this coffee shop hosts an open mic every Wednesday at 8 p.m. Weekly Volcano all-ages music columnist Rockford Rowley recommends it.

5. Our First Brains, We Play Quiet and Adam France will rock the all-ages venue Red Room beginning at 7 p.m.
