Cheech & Chong puff-puff-give

Here are a few things you almost certainly already know about Richard "Cheech" Marin and Tommy Chong: their giggly brand of stoner comedy was all the rage on screen and stage in the '70s and ‘80s. Their 1978 film debut, Up in Smoke, earned more than $44 million on a

Bettie Spotlight: Brooklyn Deck Her

The busy wife and mother of two young sons, ages 11 and 5, likes to stay as active as possible. Being in Washington state helps. The New York native loves spending time outdoors in her adopted state, where she has lived for two years. Long, brisk walks in her Lacey

Comedy night for Sgt. Justin Norton

It has been eight years since Sgt. Justin Norton was killed in action in Iraq. To his family and friends, that dark day still seems like yesterday. It is a pain that no amount of time can heal. Norton grew up in the small, quiet city of Rainier, and the

Friday, Oct. 31: Night of the Living Tribute Bands

Most musicians first get their feet wet by aping their favorite bands for hours in front of their mirrors, so it makes perfect sense that bands would dress up as their favorite acts for Halloween. To wit, Night of the Living Tribute Bands features Olympia's musicians and

Saturday, Nov. 1: Pig Snout

Formed by longtime Tacoma music fixture Justin Tamminga and his two children, Dahlia and Lucien, Pig Snout is a testament to the joy and universality of rock 'n' roll. If it can be believed, Dahlia and Lucien are 6 and 9, respectively, and they just started learning their instruments in

Saturday, Nov. 1: Jeffrey Lewis

I have a soft spot in my heart for Jeffrey Lewis. I first saw him perform in a downtown venue - the long-gone Stereolounge - shortly after I started getting underage drunk and going to see punk shows. Someone from the Drug Purse (can't remember who) stumbled and fell through

Wednesday, Nov. 5: Buddy Jackson

Montana-based garage pop band Buddy Jackson sure know their way around a good "woh-oh." While there's certainly a good amount of fuzzed-out thrashing, Buddy Jackson always give you plenty of sugar to let the medicine go down. Melody and a good sing-along chorus seem to always be at the front

Through Nov. 9: "Dial 'M' for Murder"

Tacoma Little Theatre's staging of the classic tale of crime and betrayal, Dial "M" for Murder, draws your eye chiefly to three things: a telephone positioned on a desk by a window, an apartment's front door looming in the background and a green handbag resting on a

Through Nov. 9: "Red Herring"

Olympia Little Theatre has harpooned a Moby-Dick of a show with Red Herring. Its production opens on Maggie, a brassy Bostonian cop. Her partner in love and heroism, Frank, is trying to convince her to marry him. She pumps the brakes, claiming eagerness to solve the case

Night of the Living Tribute Bands 2014

My first concert, reluctantly attended with my star-struck mother and grandmother, was Neil Diamond. Yes, that Neil Diamond, oft referred to lovingly as the Jewish Elvis - and I was blown the hell away. How could somebody so ancient take the stage with such charisma? (He was younger then than

Pig Snout shames us all

It occurred to me, after living on this planet for 18 years, and after loving music for the majority of that time, that I had no earthly clue of how to actually play an instrument. So, being the lazy under-achiever that I am, I picked up a ukelele, figuring that

Eating and drinking bread on South Hill

During my ongoing attempt to travel the culinary world without having to actually travel, I have re-discovered the classic American side dish called "Pepto Bismol."  Something is seriously twisted and not right with my digestive system, especially when dealing with my latest non-domestic food quest. I can handle a greasy

We all have food cravings, right? But what if you had a food craving so intense that the intensity turned to obsession? That obsession turned to mission. And that mission was your life (well, for a short time anyway). Last summer, my husband and I literally gorged ourselves with these teeny little

Strip mall dining in Pierce County

I have a weird relationship with strip malls. Most of the time, they are just a blur of cement parking lots, a gross overuse of the colors red and orange, strips of benign buildings hooked together, long and segmented, like a giant urban caterpillar. Sometimes, I need to stop in and conduct

Where Tacoma bartenders eat after work

Being a veteran of the restaurant industry - aka former boozeslinger - smiling server-type for many years now, combined with the fact that I've been hitting the streets for the foodnik scoop for several years, I have befriended many a bartender. I like to pretend this is because of the
