FRIDAY, DEC. 3 >>>

1. It's Sailor Jerry time at the Blue Mouse tonight. Can you say free rum? Check details here.

2. Tacoma's acclaimed Fulcrum Gallery hosts its second annual artists market today and tomorrow - One Offs, B-Sides and Studio Gems. Names like Trevor Dickson, Jeremy Gregory, Mindy Barker, Geof Wegg, Kristin Giordano, Elise Richman, Zoe Johnson, Oliver Doriss, Amir Shawn and Zach Marvic will be featured. This will be good.

3. Hey, it's the holiday season. There's a decent chance you could find yourself at the Barnes and Noble in Olympia on Black Lake Boulevard today. If this happens, be sure to check in with the Student Orchestra of Greater Olympia, performing at 6 p.m. today and tomorrow.

4. It's time for the 15th Annual holiday festival and tree lighting ceremony - from 4-7 p .m. today at Lakewood City Hall. Yes, Santa will be there. The tree lights at 4:30 p.m., Santa arrives at 4:45 p.m. I'm sure he's on a tight schedule this time of year, so plan accordingly - and dress warm.

5. Today marks the first day of C.I. Shenanigans foray into live music every Friday and Saturday from 8 - 11 p.m. Enjoy yourself with Collaborative Works Jazz on Ruston's beautiful waterfront.
