Are you so inspired by the Oscars that you feel a strong desire to get out of the house and live? Good call. Allow me to suggest perusing our event listings and Staff Picks for some inspiration. 

Here are some of the highlights we found for Monday, Feb. 23: 

BENEFIT | The Magic Lantern Theater is hosting a fundraiser for the Pacific Northwest Surgical Outreach nonprofit, which provides much-needed medical care in poor countries. Tonight, hear from medical student Kathryn Jones about her work for the program in Peru. 

WORDS | Yale professor of religious studies Dr. Kathryn Lofton speaks at a free event at Whitworth College, presenting a lecture called "Do Not Tamper With the Clues: What Goldman Sachs Can Tell Us About Religion," a discussion touching on her research into how public policy, corporate actions, ethics and religion interact. 

SPORTS & OUTDOORS | Kayaker Patti Godwin took an solo epic trip covering more than 400 miles of the Columbia River, and she'll talk about it tonight at the Mountain Gear corporate offices.
