It’s a walk-off!

Iman.  Kirsten Dunst.  Gisele Bundchen. Tyra Banks. Cindy Crawford. Cameron Diaz.  Naomi Campbell. Heidi Klum.  Claudia Schiffer. Uma Thurman. What do all these women have in common? Each has been represented — or is represented — by Elite Model Management, who will be sending scouts to the South Hill Mall on Saturday,

Collecting art

Art, art, art! I’ve been trying to collect some art that wasn’t mass-produced, since “mass produced” and “art” seem contrary to me.  In place of the somewhat tilted sandy beach black and white photograph in our bedroom, the significant one and I will be seeing the lushness of a black and white

Hair Chat goes Girl Talk

How is it I’ve not yet been into Girl Talk/The Nail Shoppe/ As It Is? The three businesses share a space, with Stephanie Wilson owning Girl Talk, Stephanie’s husband owning As it Is, and Cortney Young owning The Nail Shoppe. Since I’ve had snaggle-toe issues, I called recently. And since the stars

Taste of Tacoma

The logjam of cars on Pearl Street last weekend attested to the success of the Taste of Tacoma. Though there might have been higher-quality cuisine to be had elsewhere in town, with less waiting in line, the shopping, foods and overall vibe of the festive, diverse crowd left smiles on

Bring me a bucket

This column, Drink of the Week, is about booze — sometimes expensive drinks, sometimes good drinks, rarely bad drinks, many times cheap drinks. Cheap drinks for cheap bastards like me. One day, if I become a day trader, I’ll drink at some of those restaurants on Ruston Way all day long.

When your server snaps

Today I received my first letter. I hadn’t solicited yet for reader input, but it found its way to my editor.  Fortunately, he sent it my way while I was having severe writer’s block and about to drink myself into a stupor (who am I to look a gift horse

Trouve to close

Trouve to close Trouve will close officially July 12 and is doing that whole “Closing Sale” thing. Don’t get me wrong — I love a good sale, but I hate it when the purpose of said sale is store closure. Empty storefronts make me sad, especially when the shops previously inhabiting said

7/7/07, the number of the fest

When learning numbers in Japanese, it becomes clear that counting plays a very important cultural role. It’s not so much for arithmetic but more for identifying things and people in a way that is in line with the orderliness of the culture. There are two counting methods: one is the ichi,

Carmen’s summer daze

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from writing for this fine rag, it’s that you all LOVE Carmen when she’s on vacation. So with that, I have some music for your nibble-worthy ears. I just got started with another one right now! So many of you followed my Hawaiian adventures and escapades, and

The sounds of summer

Common Northwest wisdom says it’s not officially summer until after the Fourth of July. Other parts of the country may start chopping off their Levis in June, but around here, the sun doesn’t really start showing up until the seventh month — and it only sticks around into September. The
