Gone with the tropical breeze

I am on my way home after nine days of tropical sun, food and fruity drinks. This was our (the husband and my) second trip to Kauai, Hawaii, and it was everything it was before and more — almost.  We visited prior haunts and new digs. Many places have stayed

Meconi's Pub & Eatery's Guinness

I have a very simple policy about eating meals while drinking: I don’t. Not, at least, when my goals for the night include over-inebriation. Snacks and appetizers? Fine. But big, juicy bacon cheeseburgers and a side of sweet potato fries? Sweet Christ, never while boozing, and never, ever while on

Fall into a beer

Just because the leaves are falling to the floor like Paris Hilton in a night club bathroom doesn’t mean the beer-chugging season is over. It has actually just begun. First out of the chute this month in the beer world is a shout-out to the Tacoma Beer Society as it continues

It's Italian for 'quaint'

ANNOUNCER: The boys have made the Brotherhood Tavern their satellite office ever since they were old enough to pay their own tab (though they seldom do). The shuffleboard, the funky lights, the velvet U.S. presidents, the hipsters — heaven. But when they have had their fill of cash-only booze, they

Thanksgiving dining options

Red Hot Thanksgiving I learned that I’m spending Thanksgiving with my boyfriend’s family. I’m not terribly happy about it. In fairness, the Stevens are as welcoming as you could possibly be to someone they wish wasn’t dating their son. However, I never feel quite at home there. Why? Here’s one of many. The

Green and bare it

I just ate a Hot Pocket. When it emerged from the microwave, it looked like something you might pull out of a clogged vacuum cleaner. It tasted like salted silicon. When the Tacoma Food Co-op opens, I’m going to stop eating Hot Pockets. That’s right, there is a distinct chance

Stylistic, schizophrenic abstract style

Aaron Trotter-Voronoff told me on the phone, when we set up our appointment, “You’ll know me when you see me.” It’s about noon, and a herd of university students is thinning out into small numbers of individuals hurrying to class. In general, they look student-like, with chins tucked deeply into scarves
