In pandemic times, it’s challenging to find things to do that don’t put yourself or those around you in danger, so proceed with care. 6-Pack of Things To Do also lists live-streamed events, which are the safest of all, though admittedly not the same. Have a great day!
MUSIC: The University of Puget Sound welcomes nationally-touring band Nefesh Mountain back to campus, or at least to campus via Zoom. The music of Nefesh Mountain is deeply rooted in the sounds of Appalachia and the American bluegrass tradition while also drawing from their heritage and background as Jewish Americans. Everyone is invited to this free concert sponsored by the University Chaplaincy in collaboration with the Jewish Student Union. Pair the show with Triceratops Brewing Banjo Dog Brown Ale from the Peaks & Pints cooler. 7 p.m., Banjo Zoom Room, photo courtesy of BAM Photography
THE HUNT: The city of Fircrest, with generous support from Berkshire Hathaway South Sound Properties, hosts a treasure hunt in … wait for it … Fircrest. Running through Oct. 30, the hunt begins at, appropriately, Berkshire Hathaway South Sound Properties where you’ll receive your first clue. There will be prizes along the way and a treasure at the X marks the spot. Wear a costume if you need an excuse to dress up, and consider packing a bag with mask, hand sanitizer, candy, bananas, PB&J sandwiches, a bit of string, a hammer, a $5 Wal-Mart shovel, and a copy of The Clock Without A Face. Good luck! 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Berkshire Hathaway South Sound Properties, 1251 Regents Blvd., Fircrest
BEER FLIGHT: Chocolate adds complexity, well-roundedness, and smoothness to a beer’s flavor, whether its chocolate is added to the brewing process or chocolate malts are incorporated. And while it’s not easy to brew with — oils can cause head retention issues, and it often require long and labor-intensive boils — chocolate beers are freakin’ delicious. Celebrate National Chocolate Day today with five chocolatey beers in our to-go beer flight, Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Chocolate On The Fly. 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Peaks & Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Basecamp Proctor, Tacoma, guaranteed seating via Open Table app
POP-UP COOKIE DOUGH: You got this. You enjoy the unholy parade of the gooey, crispy, melty, gotta-have-it-now variety at the Fair — such as bacon fluffernutter sandwiches, deep-fried avocados, and cheesy nacho corn-on-the-cob featuring Doritos-branded cheese dust. Sugar + Spoon Cookie Dough Truck is popping-up this afternoon in Puyallup. We’re talking safe-to-eat raw cookie dough piled high in a cone. The even better news is your mom isn’t going to whack you with a wood spoon for licking it. 3-7 p.m., Sugar + Spoon Cookie Dough Truck, 2930 S Meridian, Puyallup
MIXED FORTUNES: If you want your fortune read, Erin of Shadow Maestra Tarot will have her crystal ball and astrological charts reading for you at The Church Cantina tonight. OK, maybe there won’t be crystal balls or astrological charts, but there will be plenty of tarot decks, cocktails, and masks. 4 p.m., The Church Cantina, 5240 S. Tacoma Way, Tacoma, reading reservations at www.shadowmaestratarot.com

Book your lane here. 3806 N. 26th St., Proctor District, Tacoma
