Cigar Rolling Party

Cigar rolling party Screw those whiny anti-smoking ordinances. For some, nothing beats a fat stogie and a stiff drink after a tough week. Lucky for you, the Thurnderbird Aficionado Cigar Lounge in East Tacoma is moments away from anywhere, and it features more than a hundred varieties of fine cigars imported

Emerald Queen Casino turns 10

Let’s all get ready to wish the Emerald Queen Casino a big, happy 10th birthday Saturday and Sunday at the Emerald Queen I-5 Showroom. It all starts at 11 a.m., so there’ll be plenty of time to feed the money-gobbling monkey alongside your grandma’s friends. Thinking back 10 years is hard

Taste of Africa

Taste of Africa There is little middle ground in food. People either want to eat your food or they don’t. If they do, they do, if they don’t — they might still have to, but rest assured there’s anger building behind those placid faces. Either way (but certainly if you want

Cassidy’s Pub tequila shots

OK, I’ll admit that in retrospect trying to show off to the ladies on the putt-putt golf course at Cassidy’s Pub & Outdoor Mini-golf wasn’t a good idea.  I was feeling in a sporting mood and harkened back to my teenage years of picking up chicks at the Parkland Putters

Frantic splendor

There once was a time when up-and-coming playwrights, or those who think they are on the rise anyway, had the opportunity to showcase their works at a venue that tried to present theatergoers with new works while at the same time giving playwrights a chance to see their works on

I love being single

Being single is a choice. For me, it’s a very good choice, and it’s one that Natasha and I have decided we’re sticking to for the good of the order. I think it’s interesting that so many people spend their time trying to figure out what’s wrong with me since I’m not

Sing with a live band

Normally on weekdays I stick to my guns so I can continue to churn out amazing accomplishments at my above-ground professional job. But this fine rag, my nightlife investigations, along with an ever-evolving city, has been keeping me underground all week long lately. I don’t mind, though, because I’m too young to

Cool bikes, cold beer

There were no pompadour-coiffed hipsters present at the Rosewood Café Monday night.  Instead, laid-back friends sat back to enjoy half-priced wine, hearty food (bacon blue cheese salad, num!) and conversation. The group of retro-bike (no lycra or titanium allowed!) riding chums meets at 6:30 p.m. on fair-weather Mondays at the UPS

Stalking a filmmaking hobby

As a five-minute film at the 72 Hour Film Competition last Thursday, “Strander” stood out. Unlike most of the other film festival participants, “Strander” was not a lighthearted frolic. “I’m always striving to do something new and unique,” explained lab-worker by day Richard Acosta, who wrote and directed the movie

Texture tenure

Bob Gillis’ maturity is showing in his mini-retrospective, “Work After 70 Years,” at Art House Designs in Olympia. I’ve followed his progress over an almost 20-year period, and his latest works are the strongest yet. Gillis has always done wonderful things with intricately textured surfaces. His earlier works were all about

When art shouldn\'t imitate life

Two months shy of her 21st birthday but already with enough partying in her past to give Keith Richards a hangover, Lindsay Lohan has more baggage than luisvuitton.com as she stars in “Georgia Rule.”  And she’s playing a deeply troubled party girl.  Is Lohan tapping into the continuing soap opera that is

Do not see this film on a full stomach

Director Danny Boyle’s edgy and very gritty 2002 film “28 Days Later” was an outstanding addition to the genre of “plague pictures” — films usually (but not always) set in a dark future world being overwhelmed by some kind of disease or infection that threatens to annihilate the planet.  Now, Spanish

Casey Neill rocks

Bobble Tiki sometimes feels a bit out of place in Olympia. From time to time, Bobble Tiki has been known to head south from his Tacoma bungalow, and hit up Le Voyeur for a few drinks and one of the few non-vegan delights on the menu. Sometimes Bobble Tiki cruises
