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

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

Cool. Having been recognized

Smells like turkey spirit

Turkey Day (the time honored tradition of stuffing bread up a turkey’s ass and eating it) is by far my favorite holiday. I like it even more than Christmas. Thanksgiving has all that Christmas has to offer: great food and drink, family and friends, and crisp weather that lures us

Tunes and new shoes

The significant one is into Nike shoes. Which is interesting to me, a person who needs the stability received from what I fondly refer to as “Franken-boots” — New Balance running sneaks I get at South Sound Running on Pacific Avenue. The two of us, on a rare weekend in Seattle,

My Las Vegas

There’s something about the idea of cooking that just brings warm, happy feelings deep into my soul. Sure, the act of eating makes me happy, but when I think of the fun part of the process of cooking — the special gadgets, the flavorful combinations, the time-proven methods and bizarre rituals

What comes around ...

It’s not easy to engage a live audience in an age where people channel surf while text messaging, talking on the phone, eating dinner, checking e-mail and updating their MySpace pages. Spending an hour or two watching a singer/songwriter is great if you are already a big fan or if

“Bella” tells the story of two people who fall in love because of an unborn child. Winner of the Audience Award at Toronto 2006, it is a heart-tugger with the confidence not to tug too hard. It stars an actor named Eduardo Verastegui, whom I would describe as the next
