6 p.m. Argenta Community Theater. $8.

If you've not watched any of designer, expert gardener and all-around lifestyle media guru P. Allen Smith's TV shows or appearances on The TODAY Show or read any of his books or blog postings or listened to his new radio program on KARN 102.9 FM, you're missing out on some really great home and garden advice.

I've been watching some of the videos on his YouTube channel, where he offers practical recommendations and tips about everything from how to use lavender sprigs to keep your wool sweaters smelling fresh during storage to the myriad uses of baking soda to how to plant a great fall vegetable garden and more.

It's totally inspiring and useful stuff, especially for me, now that I'm into my husband, father and homeowner period and out of my awful, depressed bachelor phase. Back then, the only lifestyle innovations I ever considered were things like, "Try rubbing a dryer sheet onto your pants once in a while. It'll add another month or so between trips to the Laundromat" or "Sriracha makes everything taste like Sriracha. Use it to liven up some stale corn flakes while masking the bitter taste of desperation and the spoiled soymilk you discovered in the back of your refrigerator."

Smith and filmmaker Gerry Bruno will screen some clips and discuss the creation of their YouTube channel. This event is part of the ongoing Argenta Tulip Festival.
