FRIDAY, AUG. 6, 2010 >>>
1. Gig Harbor resident David DePatie created the Pink Panther cartoon character that starred in the opening credits of Blake Edwards' Pink Panther flicks. The opening was the perfect tip-off to the silliness that followed. At 8:30 p.m. DePatie will show two or three Pink Panther clips followed by the original 1963 Peter Sellers Pink Panther film as part of CinemaGig Outdoors, which takes place at Donkey Creek Park.
2. Ben Union performs at 5 p.m. inside the Harmon Brewery & Eatery in downtown Tacoma.
3. Tacoma's Telephone Room Gallery, the world's second smallest gallery, hosts an opening reception for talented painter and letterpress artist Chris Sharp from 6-9 p.m. Sharp's show, I don't hate anyone, runs through Aug. 29 at the very tiny gallery. You'll feel at ease during the reception as Sharp will take a liking to you. He doesn't hate anyone.
4. Ariel Zimmer will perform inside The Den Tea Bar at 7 p.m. as the featured poet for the Speak Your Soul open mic. You and your poem Let's Ruin Irony For Everyone will follow.
5. The Human jukebox Steve Stefanowicz performs at 7 p.m. inside the Harbor Greens/Forza Wine Bar in Gig Harbor.
