Ever wanted to learn how to kick people in the face? The UAF Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Club is holding a class, and I figure they can probably hook that up for you. Head to the SRC Fitness Studio at 6:45 p.m. and they will teach you how! Probably. That might be a little more advanced. Consider asking an instructor when exactly the face kicking starts. – Spencer Tordoff / Web Editor

It’s Open Mic Night from 7-9 p.m. at Arctic Java. Come from singing, poetry, dancing and God knows what else. Arctic Java will still be open too, if you just want to swing by for some coffee. Or you could preform if you like—as the name suggests, it’s open to anyone. If you can get on the stage, then whatever you want to do can happen. Just make sure you don’t mic drop at the end of your sick freestyle. Apparently that’s frowned upon. – Kyrie Long / Copy Editor

Do you like food? Tired of “49” food? Then head over to the Hutchinson Institute of Technology at 11:30 a.m. to get some great food from the UAF Culinary. Experience dishes from tomorrow’s next bright chefs. It costs $12 and the event ends at 1 p.m. The theme for this meal is Italian. – Aaron Walling / Advertising Manager

This Saturday the band Sand Castle is playing at McCafferty’s from 8:30-10:30 p.m. Actually, they play there every Friday and Saturday so if you have a good time it’s an easy thing to go do again. They perform contemporary folk, rock, and retro pop. There should also be coffee and stuff if you’re into that. – Molly Putman / Layout Editor

On the theme of alien hunting, celebrate NASA’s Kepler Mission, a space photometer for searching for extrasolar planets in the Milky Way galaxy. This device was launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida this day in 2009.
For all Tyson fans, take today to celebrate the day Mike Tyson became the youngest heavyweight titleholder when he beat James Smith in a 12-round fight in Las Vegas in 1987.
If none of these interest you, there is always Monopoly in the Pub. The classic board game was invented this day in 1933. – Lida Zakurdaew / Distribution Manager
