Happy Hour Floats @ Uncharted Waters Float Center

Originally developed in the 1950s as a way to study consciousness and brain activity, floating has become a respected health practice. With benefits ranging from pain relief and stress reduction to improved focus and mental clarity, it’s no surprise that floating has attracted the interest of athletes, artists, meditators, and military personnel alike. Floating offers a healthy, drug-free way to feel and be your very best.

Tacoma Little Theatre Presents: Gypsy @ Tacoma Little Theater
Mar 24 @ 7:30 pm

Tacoma Little Theatre presents one of the greatest American musicals of all time, GYPSY, directed by Chris Serface, with choreography by Lexi Barnett, and musical direction by Debra Leach.

A crowning achievement in American musical theatre, Gypsy starts in Seattle and tells the story of Mama Rose, the ultimate stage mother, and her hopes and dreams for her daughters, June and Louise. As the lights of Vaudeville are dimming, Louise steps into the spotlight as Gypsy Rose Lee and rises to become one of the most famed burlesque performers of all time. Just like Mama Rose, Gypsy is brassy, bold, and sexy. Jule Styne’s music and Stephen Sondheim’s lyrics include popular hits such as: Let Me Entertain You, Some People, You’ll Never Get Away from Me, If Momma Was Married, All I Need Is the Girl, Everything’s Coming Up Roses, You Gotta Get A Gimmick and Together Wherever We Go.

80s Invasion @ The Swiss Pub
Mar 24 @ 9:00 pm

80s Invasion takes the music of the ’80s very seriously. This is the music we listened to on our original Sony Walkmen, the bands whose names we stenciled on our pee-chees, jeans, Nikes, and in some cases, all over town. When MTV first came around, these were the bands whose videos we watched all night at our friends’ houses, and the first concerts we went to. Some of our most memorable experiences (ahem) occurred listening to these songs. This music matters and we care enough about it to do it right. So join us and rediscover the incredible music from the 80s!
