BUTTERFLIES & BLOOMS--Visitors to the annual "Butterflies & Blooms" exhibit at the Woodland Park Zoo this year should be prepared to think like an insect--particularly during the "Life Cycle Landscape" portion of the exhibit, where you are encouraged to imagine yourself as a butterfly metamorphosing through the various stages of life. Sounds interesting, but it'd be much cooler if they had this sort of thing with the monkey exhibit. Now that would be a good time! Ooh-ooh-ooh! Ah-Ah! Woodland Park Zoo, 5500 Phinney Ave N, 684-4800, 10 am-6 pm, $1 per person (children 2 and under are free) in addition to regular zoo admission ($8).


FORUM THEATRE--Tonight at the Chamber Theatre (a.k.a. Seattle Mime Theatre) is a one-time event from the Mandala Center for Awareness, Transformation & Action. They're presenting some of society's major issues in skit form, the culmination of a week-long intensive training in techniques of Augusto Boal's Theater of the Oppressed. The audience decides which skits will be performed, then they're performed a second time to allow audience participation in improvising solutions. Seating is very limited, so arrive early! Chamber Theatre, 915 E Pine St, Fourth Floor, 297-5059, 7:30 pm, free.


AMPHIBIAN FAIR--Remember when you were a kid and would spend hours in the backyard running after frogs and snakes? The Pacific Northwest Herpetological Society does, and will therefore be holding a Reptile & Amphibian Fair this weekend to bring back some of those childhood memories. Visitors will be allowed to interact with a variety of animals, including (if you dare) a 15-foot Burmese python named Olga. Seattle Aquarium Bayview Room, Pier 59, 10 am-5 pm. $4 for adults, $7 for the whole family.


SEATTLE STORM--Now that the NBA Finals are finally done and all subsequent riots and fires have been extinguished, you have no excuse not to show some support for the ladies of the WNBA. Tonight, our own Seattle Storm battle it out with the Washington Mystics, and hopefully no violence will ensue after we kick the living shit out of them. KeyArena, 7 pm. Single-game tickets start at $8.
