Skinny chef

Back in the day, I was a diver on the high school diving team. In the water, we girls all pretty much looked the same, devoid of makeup and crazy-eighties big hair. The boys, slicked-down wet and wearing tight little skivvies, were unrecognizable in the halls by day, prompting me

Strings attached

Ah, the power of an apron. It’s a nostalgic thing in my world: I remember reruns of “Leave it to Beaver,” “Ozzie and Harriet” and “The Donna Reed Show” where the perfect mom always had a smile and an apron. I remember making Hungarian baked goods with my mom during the

Friday, June 21: Paper Bird

The concept of the Broadway Center's Cathedral series is simplistic to the point of perfection: get some beautiful-sounding artists to perform in beautiful spaces designed to bounce around beautiful sounds. These are not raucous events, but rather contemplative experiences that take exploit churches' natural abilities to heighten and highlight negative

Erin Rose

We all know a successful holiday season requires one to excel at certain special skills: There’s the one-handed, come-from-behind sale-table grab; the ability to remain perfectly calm while trying to maneuver between two fat ladies, an ocean of package-laden strollers (where’s the baby?) and a Santa line backed up all

Shopping at the drug store

I one-stop shop Commitment is a difficult thing to embrace in the world of cosmetics. A television ad for a sensational new mascara that promises to make my lashes look five times longer, plumper, thicker and natural recently invaded my senses. Of course, skepticism is present, but that doesn’t negate my

Friday, June 21: Bloodbirds

The similarities between Bloodbirds' album, Psychic Surgery, and the early Flaming Lips album, Telepathic Surgery, don't stop at the names. Like the work of the early Flaming Lips, Bloodbirds create psychedelic slash-and-burn screeds, with little dashes here and there of the kind of charming silliness in the lyrics that would

ArtsFund Luncheon

“Vibrant.” “Livable.” “Vital.” “Viable.” Not bad, in terms of adjectives used to describe a city where once, the best that could hope for was a local paper deeming it “gritty.” But now, this little, vibrant city of ours that could is being featured in the Smithsonian magazine as one of five places

Cowboys rejoice!

With the closure of the Big Whisky Saloon in the heart of downtown Tacoma, many a cowboy were left with an achy breaky heart, though most in the know did not anticipate the country bar void to remain for long. The demise of Big Whisky only meant bigger and better things for

Lots of singing this week

“sleeping beauty” “Sleeping Beauty,” a stage version of the classic tale complete with a dude in a dragon suit, is a fun show if you have some time to kill. There’s a curse. There’s a spindle. There’s a deep sleep and a charming prince out to rescue the narcoleptic royalty. Tacoma
