Open-Mic Night @ Tacoma Comedy Club
Feb 21 @ 8:00 pm

Every Wednesday night at Tacoma Comedy Club we have Open-Mic Night! This is where dreams are made, and nightmares come true. This night has everything from professional comedians working out new material, to comics getting on stage for the very first time. The best part is, it is FREE! There is no cost to attend open-mic night, and it is happy hour all night. So if you want to get a laugh, feel better about your life, and have a couple drinks, then Tacoma Comedy Club is the place to be on Wednesday nights! (Must be 18 or older to attend).

If you are interested in performing, e-mail openmic@tacomacomedyclub.com between Thursday at noon, and Monday at noon, before the Wednesday you want to perform. If you are selected you will be notified by Tuesday at noon. If you are not selected just continue to try each week. The more weeks you e-mail, the more you will be selected to perform. If you plan on bringing a group of friends let us know, that will improve your chances. If you are not selected we still encourage you to come watch the show. If you arrive between 7 and 7:30 you can sign up for a drawing. We pick one comic the night of to perform. You will get three minutes when you first start, and can work your way up to four or five minute sets. Please e-mail if you have any questions.

Tacoma Runners Thursday Run @ Tacoma

The Thursday night beer run started in January, 2010, with just seven runners. It’s a social run that now exceeds one hundred runners nearly every week of the year. Thousands of people have joined this run from every corner of the region.

The Thursday night run is approximately three miles long. This distance is a night off for some; it’s aspirational for others.

Double Mountain Devil’s Cuvee Release Party @ Peaks and Pints
Feb 22 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Among the Double Mountain craft beers pouring will be Devil’s Cuvee, an oak barrel aged version of the brewery’s Devil’s Kriek Belgian style sour ale with cherries.

Founded on St. Patrick’s Day 2007, Double Mountain has a clear mission: make great beer for craft beer fans. Ever since then owner Matt Swihart (when not playing guitar in his band GreenNeck Daredevils) has worked hard to meet this mission, focusing on uncompromising beer quality, with ingredients such as two-row pilsner malts from British Columbia, Belgian yeast strains, fruit from Hood River orchards and Northwest hops. Famed for both their hoppy and sour fruit beers such as IRA, Vaporizer and Devil’s Kriek as well as the brewpub in downtown Hood River’s awesome pizza, family friendly atmosphere and live music, Double Mountain has become a top Oregon destination.

Happy Hour Floats @ Uncharted Waters Float Center
Feb 23 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

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.

“The cure for anything is saltwater: sweat, tears, or the sea.” -Isak Dinesen

Join us for happy hour every Friday evening from 4:00 p.m. to close!

80s Invasion @ The Swiss Pub
Feb 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.

The members of 80s Invasion are seasoned professional musicians with numerous recording and tour credits.
The band was formed out of a serious admiration and fondness of the great dance music of the 1980s.
