Feeling Lucky

Clark County Historical Museum kicks off its 2024 History on Tap season at 7 p.m. today at the Kiggins Theatre, 1011 Main St., Vancouver. Tyler Castle and Pat Franco will present “History a-Brewin’: Lucky Lager Untapped.” The program celebrates the 90-year history of the Lucky Lager Brewing Company through an exploration of marketing campaigns and memorabilia. Before the main event, the audience is invited to see which bits of history are true and which are fake in “A History and a Lie,” followed by Clark County Trivia. Tickets are $5 at kigginstheatre.com or $10 at the door.

The Grape Gatsby

La Uva Fortuna, 16712 N.E. 219th St., Battle Ground, will host a Gatsby Murder Mystery Dinner from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday. Dress in 1920s attire, mingle with suspicious characters and uncover clues to catch the culprits. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, dinner and dessert. The evening features both interactive roles and spectator roles for those who’d like to enjoy the ambiance instead of solving a murder. Tickets are $75 per person and include dinner and bottomless wine and cocktails. Purchase tickets at lauvafortuna.com/gatsby.

Birds, bunnies, berries

NatureScaping will offer a workshop, “Bring Nature to your Doorstep: Planning and Designing with Nature,” from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Center for Agriculture, Science and Environmental Education, 11104 N.E. 149th St., Brush Prairie. Tesner Kleiner, owner of Nature+Play Designs and program manager for Lower Columbia Nature Network, will show how to bring more nature into your yard with planning, design and native plants. Bring photos or aerial maps of your property. The cost is $15. To register, call 360-737-1160 or email info@naturescaping.org.

Art and inspiration

Art at the CAVE Gallery, 108 E. Evergreen Blvd., Vancouver, presents its January exhibit, “Charting the Liminal,” featuring the work of painter Kay Danley and glass master Jeff Wallin. The exhibit explores a dream-like state where ideas and forms are released onto the canvas and amassed in layers of glass. The gallery will host a free artists’ talk from 1 to 2 p.m. Saturday when guests can meet the artists and ask questions about their process, techniques and inspiration. Learn more at artatthecave.com. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Count your cards

Kaylee Simonson of Western Fancies will lead a cardmaking workshop from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday in the banquet room at Heathen Brewing Feral Public House, 1109 Washington St., Vancouver. Students will create four different all-occasion greeting cards while enjoying food and drinks, which can be purchased on site. Variations of each card will be displayed to inspire students with ideas for different styles and words. The workshop cost is $23, including materials. Register at meetup.com.
