It’s in the bag

It’s time to split. We’ve been together nearly a year, and it’s been a mostly good year, but I’m tired. Now I know there are people out there who can juggle multiples, switching things up at whim, and there are those people who can stay with one ’til death. I suppose I’m something

Green Toe, Dwell and Chuckals

Happy, green toes I love me some comfy shoes, and I love me some win-win situations. At Dante’s, I found both of these things, especially when it came to the Simple brand sandals in the Green Toe line — these puppies will keep my piggies happy with simply divine comfort, and they’ll

New kid moves in!

I saw Sonja Politakis’ fabulously kicky new ’do and had to ask the question: Who? Turns out a new stylist is subtly moving her way into the scene, only she’s not so new.  Melissa Ellis has been an established face at Seattle’s fabulously posh Bocz salon.  Prior to that, she worked

Kourtney Anderson

Kourtney Anderson took a minute to flaunt her stuff in between sips of wine at the Pacific Grill’s Saturday night “Taste” wine tasting.  She commented that the sweater/shirt/tank combo was “stolen from some slaughterhouse somewhere” — potentially the items were borrowed from friends.  Her Guess? Sweater is the only big-brand

Neon jewelry

I remember watching those movies filmed in the ’70s and early ’80s starring women with big frizzy hair and neon colored jewelry. Boys and girls, the big ball bracelets with the matching necklaces and hair ties are back! I had been shopping in Clair’s at the Fort Lewis Post Exchange for

Don’t eat the Tilapia

When a movie promises me “Hungarian Revolutionaries, Christian Nudists, Pop Stars, Land Sharks, Hard Drinkers, Empty Cities, Failed Resort Towns, Tons of Dead Fish, A Dying Café, and A Man Who built a Mountain,” I take note. This same movie, “Plagues & Pleasures on the Salton Sea,” will be screened at

Tacoma Loyal

It’s been more than 10 years since Pat Nagle came across the Harmon Building. Since then, he has helped transform the spot into a legacy that includes Tacoma’s iconic Harmon Brewery and Restaurant, a set of brilliant spaces for businesses, and a regal lineup of award-winning brews (tip of the

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

\"Inner Limits,\" \"Talk Radio\" and more

Now jump on it and ride your ass to the Tacoma Farmers Market today on Broadway between Ninth and 11th. Bike to Market

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
