TODAY’S LOCAL STEW
DENIZENS OF THE DARK, Wingman Brewers: The Tacoma brewery offers a selection of dark, potent and complex craft beers, with beer advocates from all across the region taking notice beginning at noon. Based around the release of the Tacoma brewery’s Stratofortress Belgian Strong Dark Ale and Dark Waters chocolate chili coffee imperial stout, it’s easily one of the most anticipated beer events in the South Sound. Noon to midnight, 509 Puyallup Ave., Tacoma
EMPTY BOWLS, Charles Wright Academy: The Emergency Food Network never takes a day off. They can’t while there are mouths to feed.

Once purchase, you will receive a bowl of soup (in a separate bowl) by local chefs. 1-3 p.m., 7723 Chambers Creek Road. W., University Place
DOCKYARD DERBY DAMES, Pierce College Health Ed Center: There’s a thunder on the horizon, South Sound, and it’s not Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

BLACKWATCH, The Spar: In 2012, Tacoma musician, producer and actor Doug Mackey got the band back together — the band being Mr. Blackwatch, which was born, lo, many years ago when the band had issues with cows, kites, a monster, a snake, a robot, bongos and “Orange,” and the only cure was to work through the issues musically. The band still has issues, thankfully. Tonight, Mr. Blackwatch messes with The Spar crowd, unleashing cows, robots, bongos, half a dozen lasers, a smoke machine, Charlton Heston, Cher and an unforgettable evening of music, B.S., and hoohah. 8 p.m., 2121 N. 30th, Tacoma
