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

Tuesday, Sept. 10: Pheasant

Pheasant is a band of contradictions: while their music is unabashedly joyful and fun, full of driving beats and irresistible hooks, there is an undercurrent of ... something. It sounds sometimes like anger, or maybe bitterness, or depressive resignation. The Portland band lavishes their tunes with horns, sing-along choruses and

Thursday, Sept. 12: "Wounded, A Legacy of Operation Iraqi Freedom" book signing

They say the truth can set you free, but sometimes it can also help you understand things are too hard to put into words. "I was watching the news during a layover in Germany after we'd brought wounded warriors to the hospital and was just stunned at how different it was

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

2013 Squeak and Squawk Music Festival to drop jaws

With a swagger and stage presence that is both unassuming and surprising, Carletta Sue Kay is a sight with broad shoulders, disheveled wig and gaudy gowns. But when this powerful singer grabs the mic, it's on. Randy Walker, aka Carletta Sue Kay, hails from San Francisco but is making his way

Get in on Strangely Alright's video shoot

We are all used to the fact that MTV no longer delights us with original, catchy music videos. Gone are the days of flipping on the tube and being entertained with both visual and auditory sensation that actually have class and creativity. But, musicians are evolving creatures and lucky for us,

Rakehell and Go Pills deliver Analog Resurgence

I had purchased vinyl when I was about 14 - Beck's Sea Change, Transatlanticism by Death Cab For Cutie, a really cool pink vinyl edition of The Flaming Lips' In a Priest Driven Ambulance - but I never quite went through the whole bin-digging experience when it came to finding

Visual Edge: "Natural History of the Surreal"

Otto Younger's sculptures in the Handforth Gallery spill out of the gallery space to inhabit sections of the entire gallery, first and second floor and even the windows above the main entrance. They are big, bold, hysterically funny and insightfully satirical. What Youngers has created is a parody of museum

Tacoma has Soul - with flair for Cuban and Puerto Rican cuisine

The Proctor District of Tacoma is now home to Soul, a Latin American and soul food restaurant, which opened mid-August. Housed in the former Old House Café, Soul is bringing a much-appreciated underrepresented cuisine in the area. It is not just for lunch and dinner, either. Locals will be happy

"Hollywood Who Done It" dinner and show

I was leery of reviewing Hollywood Who Done It, as I had the impression it was one of those "Mystery Nite" dinners. You know the kind: waiters circle the room and try to look interested while diners decide which of a cast of flamboyant characters killed oil baron Tex Arlington.

Special Forces S.O.C.O.M.

For Jason Mitchell, it's all about service and a mission, but perhaps not in the way you'd think. Sure, the 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne) Chief Warrant Officer 3, now in his second year serving at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, has served his country proudly for 17 years. Yet Mitchell is a
