Back in March, South Sounders were looking forward to a summer of warm weather and a wealth of seasonal events. Then the coronavirus pandemic shook up the entertainment industry, moving everything from art shows to concerts online. Today, the arts continue online as part of our 6-Pack of Things To Do, but venture outside for the last Steilacoom Farmers Market, adventure boxes for the kids, and triple IPAs for you!

6-Pack-Kim-and-Brian-8-26-20MUSIC: Job Carr Cabin Museum in Old Town Tacoma will be hosting a live-streaming “Eureka!” fundraiser tonight. This live-concert event benefiting the museum will feature local duo Kim&Brian, aka Kim Archer and Brian Feist, intermixed with a video program highlighting the important work the museum does for our Tacoma community. Archer and Fiest are life-long musicians and honest songwriters whom capture the spectrum of life in their stories, then deliver them with musical grit and transparent emotion. We’re talking original rock music. 6:30-8:15 p.m., Facebook Live

6-Pack-Beer-Flight-8-26-20BEER FLIGHT: The triple IPA, as its name implies, is a palate-smashing beast of an ale designed for those times when a double IPA simply won’t cut it. The triple IPA isn’t a judged style, at least not yet, but it’s massively hoppy beer of at least 10 percent ABV with outrageous amounts of dry hops, hop flavor, malt flavor, alcohol and bitterness. Still not sold? We feature four examples in today’s to-go beer flight, Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: 10 Percent Plus IPAs On The Fly. 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Peaks & Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Proctor District, Tacoma

It’s your last chance to stock up on an wonderful array of crafts, soaps, candles, masks, plants, barbecue sauces, vinegars, olive oils, teas, popcorn, flowers, fruits, vegetables, handmade toys, pottery, tasty food and more. 3-7 p.m., corner of Lafayette and Wilkes, downtown Steilacoom

6-Pack-Adventure-Box-8-26-20ADVENTURE BOXES: The Peninsula Metropolitan Park District in Gig Harbor has assembled 100 free Adventure Boxes for kids to pick up and bring adventure to their backyard.
