ON THE LEVEL: Did you know that Wednesday is National Women’s Equality Day? Until recently, I didn’t either. The Women’s Museum is trying to change all that with a luncheon tomorrow at the museum. Anyone care to wager a guess as to why the event is celebrated on Aug. 26? No one? OK, I’ll tell you – it’s the anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote in 1920. If you’d like to attend the luncheon, full details are on the Women’s Museum blog.

A KIDNAPPING IN PROGRESS: If you’ve been watching Sarah Crisma’s new Web series spotlighting local bands, you know she likes to have fun. If you haven’t watched the show yet, this latest episode is a good place to start. In it, she’s kidnapped by Denton band Trebuchet and “forced” to interview them. Will she make it out alive? Watch to find out.

NUTS ABOUT NUTS: Do you have a story about peanuts? If so, the Aubrey Library is looking for you. The library is launching its second Peanut Festival Writing Contest tied to the city’s annual peanut festival and is looking for nutty stories, poems, essays, memoirs, etc. from writers of all ages. If that sounds like your thing, read more here.

ETC.: DFW.com is giving away tickets to the Dia de los Toadies concert on Aug. 29 (dfw.com) … Lyric Stage has hired a managing director to help out producer Steven Jones (dallasnews.com).
