Nothing fishy about it

ANNOUNCER: Brewpubs may be a dime a dozen, but Olympia still has one of the best in the state.  The Fish Tale Brewpub, saddled up next to the Fish Brewery, recently donned a new dress. It’s now a gorgeous two-level eatery with plenty of bar space for its unique brews,

Food fight? Hardly

Conventional wisdom would have us believe that the rise of higher-end restaurants in Tacoma during the last few years would leave sour tastes in the mouths of the chefs at the City of Destiny\'s landmark eateries. That wisdom would be wrong. "As a resident of Tacoma, I like to see new

Miracle on film

The movie opens with the flat, confiding voice of Tommy Lee Jones. He describes a teenage killer he once sent to the chair. The boy had killed his 14-year-old girlfriend. The papers described it as a crime of passion, “but he tolt me there weren’t nothin’ passionate about it. Said

Public or private, in public showers

A while ago as I showered at the Downtown YMCA a woman came up right next to me (we were the only two there) and proceeded to attempt to engage me in conversation while she lifted up body parts and scrubbed vigorously. Fast forward, today at the Morgan Family branch, I

Merry Christmas

I received a subscription to Biblical Archaeology Magazine last year for Christmas. I knew it was mine, because it said, “to Hank’s Wife.” I knew from whom it came because it said, “to Hank’s Wife.” The brother of my Significant One has a pet name for me when he’s calling up the stairs

Roxanne Murphy

At last Saturday’s two-year anniversary party at the Tempest Lounge, all eyes softened when they saw Roxanne Murphy, the PR bitty from the city, in this sweet Chinese dress. She calls this look “Asian up the Indian” (her mother’s side of the family is from the Nooksack Tribe just outside of

Dang.

Inspired by vintage fashions, loud colors, fun prints, and the chance to have one-of-a-kinds, Brooke McLaughlin created Dang. She describes the Dang. line as “a casual fun look inspired by rockabilly culture.” She creates hats, purses, dresses, skirts, hoodies, and shirts — all from scratch. McLaughlin, a Tacoma resident, sizes

Santa Stefanowicz's gift

I wasn’t quite ready for the holiday season this year. It seems impossible that it could be time for Christmas shopping and Thanksgiving celebrations already. No matter how many commercials for diamond pendants and sport utility crossovers I saw on television; I just couldn’t seem to get into the holiday

Take Part In Art

Christmas is in 40 days. I’m not sounding the alarm or anything; I’m just putting it out there. Forty days. Where am I coming from? I have a large family. I want to get them each something fantastic, something they will cherish. I want to continue to cover rent and

Thanksgiving in a bar

Just like the rest of the peeps in the United States, I have some things to be thankful for: My family, friends, a cozy home, and the fact that it’s snowing in the mountains. But one of the things that I appreciate the most out of life is something that’s not quite

Sugar high

When the Weekly Volcano World Headquarters received a hot tip about hotties in a coffee shack called the Hot Hut, I was skeptical. Sure, the girls on the Web site (www.thehothut.com) look pretty good in their studio shots, but they couldn’t possibly be that scantily clad in person, could they? On

Sex and violence

I really like Ric Hall and Ron Schmitt’s collaborative pastels. It is absolutely astonishing that two artists can work simultaneously on a painting — and apparently, judging from their written statements, with little or no preplanning — and come up with anything as coherent and well designed as the pictures

Tempest Lounge Anniversary

Tempest Lounge Anniversary What is grace? Is it the toes of a ballerina or the sunglasses of a Jackie O? Nope, it’s the Tempest Lounge. Anniversaries are a big deal, and since it comes around only once a year, no amount of planning is too much to ensure a smooth and festive

1 club, 2 Mikes and 8 feet

There’s an old joke that proprietors of jazz clubs secretly share with each other but only reluctantly enjoy with the public. During an interview with a veteran tenor sax player, the question was asked, “What made you go into jazz?” His reply: “Well, man, I hate big crowds.” Whether that tenorist

A bunch of rock and Steve Alboucq

Wednesday, Nov. 21 PUNK neutralboy Over a 15-year career, Neutralboy has gained a devoted local following and made a name for themselves within the local punk scene. With one record to their name and another allegedly on the way, Neutralboy seems to have focused more on the basic elements of punk than

Ho! Ho! Blow!

The Museum of Glass is kind of a big deal. But you already knew that, right? Just like you already knew about the worldwide reputation our own little inverted ice-cream cone is gaining with renowned artists in the medium of glass. You probably knew all about how visiting artists will come to

Ugly sweaters, Catholic gilt and holiday events

THE PARTY Bad Xmas Sweater You knew there was a reason to hold on to the Christmas-light-laden and obscenely geometric printed green-and-red sweater. You once thought even the one with reindeer had potential. Now it’s time to explore your closets because, ladies and gentlemen, the ugliest holiday sweater contest will be held
