2. At times each of us has experienced a subtle yet notable vibrational field, within us and around us. What exactly is that? And how can we use it? Known for thousands of years throughout most cultures, it goes by many names, such as "Qi," or "Chi," or "Ki." By increasing our connection with this energy source, we enhance our awareness, improve our health, and strengthen our constitution. A nice alternative to mary jane, this class is ongoing for the next six weeks. 6:30 - 7:45 p.m., Catherine Place, 923 South 8th Street
3. Tuesday Film Series at the Grand Cinema makes me happy. They really do play excellent movies. And if I didn't have children, I'd attend every film. So those of you out there looking for action on a Tuesday, may I suggest staying away from baby-making and enjoy a good movie instead. This week's film is Grassroots. A short-tempered, unemployed music critic who likes to dress as a polar bear thinks he can harness the power of the people to ride the monorail to political victory in Seattle. And he's right. Almost. It's before Twitter, before the flash mob, before Obama. It's 2001, and political unknown Grant Cogswell decides he must take down Seattle City Councilman Richard McIver. Grant has only one dream, but it's a big one: an elegant monorail gliding silently above the city's wet streets. 2 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., $5 - $8.50, 606 South Fawcett Avenue, Tacoma,(253) 593-4474.
4. It's trivia night at Hy-lu-Hee-Hee in Gig Harbor. Have a couple drinks and try saying that five times fast. Anyway, there are three rounds worth $25 gift cards each, and a cumulative cash prize of $50 for the puzzle page. If no one wins it, next week would be $100, and so on. 6:30-8:30 p.m., free, 4309 Burnham Dr., Gig Harbor, (253) 851-7885.
5. Le Voyeur in Olympia, with it's delicious food and gritty little venue presents Soda Jerk, Agatha and Jester and Kelli! Agatha and Jester play a sappy, lovely sort of accordian music that mesmerizes and feels right. Tuesday night is a good night to get some Le Voyeur loving. And support your local music scene! 10 p.m.,404 4th Avenue East, (360) 943-5710.
