One small step for Vicci Martinez

Vicci Martinez checked her bags and made her way through Sea-Tac Airport security on Sunday. She found her gate and checked in. As she took a seat in the waiting area, she fished her cell phone out of her bag, and then dialed my number. Busy girl that she is,

From pure hell to worthy country

Beware of a certain hamburger and teriyaki joint on Sixth Avenue. I warn you because I care. This week’s column is about Bob Wayne, his Outlaw Carnies, and their show at Hell’s Kitchen tonight. Bob Wayne sits near the top of a very short list of country artists who don’t make me

Pelusa, Chuck Pyle and others

Friday, May 11 Skeletons and the Kings of All Cities I think I’m pretty darn clued-in about music, as I listen to almost everything and have soaked in data about pert near every genre there is over the years. However, while I pride myself on having a vast Rolodex of musical knowledge

Terry Evans performs at The Spar

Trouve and Urban Gourmet and Garden

Mommapalooza Yeah.  Mother’s Day is imminent.  Embarrassingly, I must admit I have made no purchases for either of the mothers on my list — neither his, nor mine — and time is running out.  Enter the Francophile-ic lovey-ness of Trouve, which, yes, will be closing, but not until July.  A recent

Bob’s the word

So there we were at Masa, and we saw this amazingly fabulous haircut.  Just prior to that trip, there we were with a group of girlfriends, and we saw this amazingly similar, amazingly fabulous haircut.  And there I was, home alone watching Shear Genius (a guilty secret pleasure, shhhhh, don’t

Sling back flats

The greatest benefit of this summer is the new sling back flats. They’re adorable shoes that go with anything: a pair of shorts, Capris, skirts, and my favorite skinny jeans. At school I have seen them in different styles and colors. The sling back flats have an elegant look. You can

Marauding Molly in the house

Two Dockyard Derby Dames Roller Derby Marauding Molly team members show off their fine style with last Saturday’s bout announcer Nathaniel.

Lennon magic in Olympia

Magic was captured in Olympia Tuesday in the notes to a song that a Steinway & Sons upright piano drew out of John Lennon, a haunting call to peace and love made more poignant after Lennon’s assassination.  Lennon bought the Model Z piano in London in 1970 and composed and recorded

Carmen’s party continues

It’s so nice when you return from a festive Hawaiian island vacation and the party only continues. As soon as Natasha and I grabbed our bags at the airport, Darling Damon and Little Leah picked us up and rolled us directly into Doyle’s Public House. Familiar haunts are fun when you’ve
