Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution changed everything, and not just for biology geeks and anthropology nerds. People freaked out when he published On the Origin of the Species because it’s not just a science book; Origin of the Species called into question all the deepest, most basic assumptions about the nature of life on Earth and its origins. Suddenly, historians, philosophers, scientists and religious leaders were faced with a startling new worldview in which the universe is in constant flux and there is no such thing as perfection. More than 150 years later, Darwin's theory still ruffles feathers. In order to keep the conversation alive and on track, The Smithsonian Institution teamed up with the American Library Association to put together a traveling exhibition that explores the long, bumpy road of human development. And its only stop in Oregon is just down the road at the Cottage Grove Public Library. Exploring Human Origins: What Does it Mean to Be Human? opens Wednesday and turns the library into a mini-Smithsonian museum, replete with colorful displays, interactive kiosks, models and statues. On Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 17-18, biologists and anthropologists from UO and The Smithsonian Institute will lead open public conversations on evolution and what it all means. Check out the exhibit before it closes March 12.

“Exploring Human Origins: What Does it Mean to Be Human?” opens Wednesday, Feb. 17, and runs through Saturday, March 12, at the Cottage Grove Public Library, 700 E. Gibbs Ave., Cottage Grove; the exhibit and events surrounding it are FREE, cottagegrovepubliclibrary.org.

Like house odds in Vegas, dating is mostly a losing proposition — a squirmy, unforgiving game generously sprinkled with moments of regret and discomfort, all played on an uncertain field where skyrocketing expectations and plummeting standards are in constant collision. In other words, the perfect setting for comedy. Every year, right around Valentine’s Day, the Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon host a night of bad-date stories, and this year’s fundraiser promises to be another doozy. Hosted by local comedian Leigh Anne Jasheway, the 5th annual “It’s Not Me, It’s You: Stories from the Dark Side of Dating” will feature uproarious recollections from a slew of comedians and storytellers including Beth Pinkerton, Seth Milstein, Adrienne Bennett, Gabby Jesus, Michael Sevigny, Serena Markstrom Nugent and Tanya Kornilovich. And while you’re busting a gut about all those misadventures in hooking up, you can also pat yourself on the back for supporting the ongoing efforts of Planned Parenthood, which has helped make Oregon one of the leading states for reproductive freedom.

“It’s Not Me, It’s You” takes place 7-9pm Friday, Feb. 12, at Cozmic, 199 W. 8th St.; $13 adv., $15 door, tickets at cozmicproductions.com.

Imagine a dragon with its shimmering green scales casting a blinding glare, its nostrils threatening fire and its lethal claws clutching … a tea cup? That’s Mortimer, a darling, poetry-writing, extra-large reptile who longs for friends in the Rose Children’s Theatre production of The Reluctant Dragon. Now imagine a culture so soaked in fear and anger that any whiff of dragon activity sends the villagers crying for blood and St. George, no matter how adorable that dragon may be. Throw in an Eric Carmen song and a tap-dancing King Fancy Pants, and you have good times for the whole family. The Reluctant Dragon is adapted from the 19th-century story by Kenneth Grahame, and director Judy Wenger has expanded the script to provide speaking roles for the 41 young cast members so everyone has a chance to shine. “This is the perfect venue and show to bring kids and grandkids to,” Wenger says. “It is a short show, treats are sold at intermission and children will enjoy the story as well as having their photo taken with the dragon, if they wish.”

Rose Children’s Theatre’s The Reluctant Dragon runs 7pm Thursday through Friday, as well as 2pm Sunday, Feb. 11-14, at the Wildish Theater, 630 Main St., Spfd.; $10, info & tickets at thertc.com. — Anna Grace

Calendar Submission Guidelines:

 

Calendar publication days are every Thursday. Due date for the calendar is the Thursday before the Thursday issue in which you would like your event published. Our What's Happening calendar is an eight-day calendar, Thursday to Thursday, while our music listings calendar is a seven-day calendar, Thursday to Wednesday. 

Example: If your event happens on Wednesday, Aug. 20, your listing would appear in our Aug. 14 issue, and the listing would be due to the calendar editor on Thursday, Aug. 7. Events that happen on Thursdays may be listed in two issues if the listing is submitted on time.

To facilitate organizing our calendar listings, please send your information as text in the body of the email  to cal@eugeneweekly.com, and attach only pertinent photos as high resolution jpg files, 1MB or larger. Attaching high resolution pictures greatly increases your chances of getting featured in our weekly calendar.

Sending information mixed with images descriptions, formatting and attachments makes locating the information difficult for our calendar writers, so please send all information in text, at the top of your message. Label all photos with the name of what is pictured or the event.

At the bottom of the email feel free to add extra information and details in case we can expand on your listing a little.

The closer you are to our listing format, the better the chance of your listing getting in the way you want it!
