1. Don’t miss the opportunity to see some of the best Sand Sculpting Artists in the world create masterpieces in front of your eyes. The Tournament of Champions is a select group of today’s top stars in the world of temporary, Museum-quality art and will showcase their talents in the largest exhibition of its kind in North America. These jury-selected sand sculpting masters were chosen from the top 10% of international sand sculptors using a variety of criteria including tenure and talent. The event runs until September 3, and today is Nortwest Invitational Day. Kids activities and food and craft vendors on site. 9 a.m. - 8 p.m. Commons Mall, Pacific Highway and S. 320th St., Commons Way, Federal Way.
2. Join the Cartoonist's League of Absurd Washingtonians for their monthly Open Swim. CLAW meets the fourth Wednesday of every month. Come cartooning! CLAW's mission is to gather talented Washington State cartoonists of great skill and humongous egos in frequently secluded gatherings during which the secrets and mystic arts of their sublime craft are practiced. Behind closed doors and away from prying eyes, the most pointless and silly of rituals will be freely indulged, much to the shame of spouses and children. Oh, and they will give a scholarship to an art student, probably a very meager one, while they wait to welcome Robot Overlords. 7:30 p.m., King's Books 218 St. Helens Ave. Tacoma, 253.272.8801.
