FRIDAY, DEC. 6 2013 >>>

1. Dan Navarro, whose songs have been covered by Pat Benatar ("We Belong"), Dionne Warwick, Dave Edmunds, the Bangles and a host of others, was one-half of the very successful songwriting/performing team of Lowen and Navarro for 29 years, although as far as performances go he's had to go it alone in 2009 since Eric Lowen's diagnosis with ALS. At 8 p.m. in Gig Harbor's Morso Wine Bar, Navarro will take a break from yelling at lawmakers over intellectual property, performer and songwriter issues, to tease his album, Shed My Skin, which will be released early next year.

2. As you know, Comet ISON is "passing through" our earthly neighborhood. ISON is a giant ball of ice and rock discovered last fall by two Russian scientists using the 16-inch reflecting telescope of the International Scientific Optical Network (ISON). The comet is hurtling toward the sun from the outer solar system, and as it passes the sun, its fate is unpredictable. The warmth from the sun could break it up into disappearing pieces or cause it to shine bright enough to be seen during the day. Learn about Comet ISON and other celestial bad asses at 5 p.m. in the Pierce College Science Dome.

3. CANCELED DUE TO WEATHER: Mushrooms and mycelium are an element of natural systems that can take your gardening and food production to another level. Protein, medicine and myoremediation are just the tips of the iceberg of how mycology can be of benefit to our ecosystem and ourselves. Ja Schindler of Fungi For the People will discuss traditional and modern reasons and methods for working with mushrooms for food, medicine, and mycoremediation at 7 p.m. in King's Books.

4. The "War on Christmas" decried by Sarah Palin and Bill O'Reilly isn't evident in South Sound theater, which is producing a rich variety of appropriately jolly and family-friendly shows for the holiday season. Weekly Volcano theater critics Joann Varnell and Christian Carvajal chime in with their thoughts on four local productions here.

5. It's the first Friday of the month and that means only one thing: Dance Oly Dance. Head on over to TCTV Studio A on Olympia's Westside and dance to local music – on TV! Sadly, this will be the last Dance Oly Dance. Don't miss this last historic taping at 8 p.m.
