Adventurous eating

Hong Sheng Fung, or The Pot Sticker, opened mid-July in a strip-mall right off 82nd and South Tacoma Way. High ceilings, bright white walls, large lush plants and banks of windows make the medium size, one-room restaurant comfortable. A window on the side of the building allows a sneak peak

The new aroma of Tacoma

Breathe in, Tacoma. Do you smell that? It smells an awful lot like happiness in a mouthful. It smells an awful lot like the kinds of sweet treats granny used to have waiting for you, the kinds of treats celebrations culminate in. It smells like the kind of treats that have a naughty,

A couple of classical beauties

THE EVENT Fall RV Show Jack Kerouac is turning in his grave. The days of taking a drug-choked jalopy down the low road to old Mexico are long over (nooooooo!!!!). If Jack were alive today, he’d want comfort and economy. With enough ill-gotten bread, he could buy himself a fancy pop-up travel

Harmonizing with social awareness

Steve and Kristi Nebel met as students at The Evergreen State College “when it was mud,” recalls Kristi of the school in 1972. He studied poetry at the brand new liberal arts college; she studied theatre. The two married in 1974 and combined their loves together as they began writing and

Tacoma Film Festival

Why do we love movies so much? Not just watching them, but making them, too. Watching is easy — you leave your life behind for a brief amount of time in trade for what’s happening on screen. Making them — it becomes your life for an amount of time. Philip Cowan,

Grazing around The Grand

Let’s face it. The dinner and a movie shtick is old … unless you’re in the vicinity of Tacoma’s Grand Cinema. The Grand has so many post-flick dining options available that the Weekly Volcano has decided to provide you, dear reader, with a short list of dining spots within walking

Dance, dance fever time

There’s no excuse to waste away on the sidelines any longer. Get in the game, get on the dance floor. How? Check out Olympia’s Occasions Ballroom at the Eagles Hall Tuesdays and Lindy Bomb at Tacoma’s Abbey Ballroom Wednesdays. Both have swing dance lessons at 7:30 p.m. with a dance party

Rainier Arts Festival

Unlike Andrea Brannon, when I look out my living room window, I see a mini-storage and the back end of a multiplex. What does Andrea Brannon see outside her window? Mostly “trees and birds,” she says. And, oh yes, there’s also an enormous mountain nearby. Artist Andrea Brannon, who lives and

Strike a pose

While Natasha’s been hawking Bravo’s “Top Chef,” I’ve been tuning into “Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style,” which actually led me to a fairly drastic decision this week: I cut most of my long hair off. Previously, my flaxen hair fell to just above my booty, but I decided that change was

Monday, July 29: Mothrider

It's gotta be said: when it comes to bringing some much-needed stage presence to the act of being a performing DJ, Mothrider is about as compelling as they come. Perpetually hidden beneath a sort of black and white super-villain mask (or maybe the kind of face that would've been super-saturated
