Santa Stefanowicz's gift

I wasn’t quite ready for the holiday season this year. It seems impossible that it could be time for Christmas shopping and Thanksgiving celebrations already. No matter how many commercials for diamond pendants and sport utility crossovers I saw on television; I just couldn’t seem to get into the holiday

Take Part In Art

Christmas is in 40 days. I’m not sounding the alarm or anything; I’m just putting it out there. Forty days. Where am I coming from? I have a large family. I want to get them each something fantastic, something they will cherish. I want to continue to cover rent and

Thanksgiving in a bar

Just like the rest of the peeps in the United States, I have some things to be thankful for: My family, friends, a cozy home, and the fact that it’s snowing in the mountains. But one of the things that I appreciate the most out of life is something that’s not quite

Sugar high

When the Weekly Volcano World Headquarters received a hot tip about hotties in a coffee shack called the Hot Hut, I was skeptical. Sure, the girls on the Web site (www.thehothut.com) look pretty good in their studio shots, but they couldn’t possibly be that scantily clad in person, could they? On

Sex and violence

I really like Ric Hall and Ron Schmitt’s collaborative pastels. It is absolutely astonishing that two artists can work simultaneously on a painting — and apparently, judging from their written statements, with little or no preplanning — and come up with anything as coherent and well designed as the pictures

Tempest Lounge Anniversary

Tempest Lounge Anniversary What is grace? Is it the toes of a ballerina or the sunglasses of a Jackie O? Nope, it’s the Tempest Lounge. Anniversaries are a big deal, and since it comes around only once a year, no amount of planning is too much to ensure a smooth and festive

1 club, 2 Mikes and 8 feet

There’s an old joke that proprietors of jazz clubs secretly share with each other but only reluctantly enjoy with the public. During an interview with a veteran tenor sax player, the question was asked, “What made you go into jazz?” His reply: “Well, man, I hate big crowds.” Whether that tenorist

A bunch of rock and Steve Alboucq

Wednesday, Nov. 21 PUNK neutralboy Over a 15-year career, Neutralboy has gained a devoted local following and made a name for themselves within the local punk scene. With one record to their name and another allegedly on the way, Neutralboy seems to have focused more on the basic elements of punk than

Ho! Ho! Blow!

The Museum of Glass is kind of a big deal. But you already knew that, right? Just like you already knew about the worldwide reputation our own little inverted ice-cream cone is gaining with renowned artists in the medium of glass. You probably knew all about how visiting artists will come to

Ugly sweaters, Catholic gilt and holiday events

THE PARTY Bad Xmas Sweater You knew there was a reason to hold on to the Christmas-light-laden and obscenely geometric printed green-and-red sweater. You once thought even the one with reindeer had potential. Now it’s time to explore your closets because, ladies and gentlemen, the ugliest holiday sweater contest will be held

It's all about women

“whistle down the wind” A show of note around the Puget Sound is 5th Avenue Theatre’s staging of the U.S. premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Whistle Down the Wind.” The show is an uplifting musical about a young Louisiana girl who finds a mysterious stranger and hides him from the townspeople, who

Sparkle at the Stardust

One of the most awaited holiday traditions is taking to the stage of Harlequin Productions. The Olympia theater is staging its holiday offering, the latest in its original serial about a troupe of New York nightclubbers doing their part for the war effort by singing their way to the hearts

Highland Health and Holler

Something about this time of year — it makes plaid cool. It makes fiddles cool, too. The Celtic Music’s Voyage to Appalachia: Highland Health and Holler, featuring Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas, Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill, and Bruce Molsky, arrives at the Pantages Theater Thursday. Cool. Having been recognized

We're Thankful for these bars

Is it possible for a bar to save your life? The Weekly Volcano thinks so. Whether you’re looking for cocktails and conversation or a place to brood, your favorite bar, tavern or lounge can be a home away from home. These are the places you go to commiserate, to communicate,

Smells like turkey spirit

Turkey Day (the time honored tradition of stuffing bread up a turkey’s ass and eating it) is by far my favorite holiday. I like it even more than Christmas. Thanksgiving has all that Christmas has to offer: great food and drink, family and friends, and crisp weather that lures us

Claiming to be the largest conveyor belt or Kaiten sushi restaurant in the Northwest, Sushi Revolution is an inexpensive way to sample your way through sashimi (raw slices of fish laid on top of rice), sushi rolls, and tempura (panko battered and deep fried veggies and various seafood). Upon entering

Everyone do the pigeon

In keeping with the bird theme for the Weekly Volcano’s Thanksgiving issue, there is this little bird-brain item in the works this weekend, The Northwest Winter Pigeon Classic. It runs Nov. 23 to 25 at the Puyallup Fairgrounds. This event, fully sanctioned and endorsed by the Puget Sound Pigeon Club,

Tunes and new shoes

The significant one is into Nike shoes. Which is interesting to me, a person who needs the stability received from what I fondly refer to as “Franken-boots” — New Balance running sneaks I get at South Sound Running on Pacific Avenue. The two of us, on a rare weekend in Seattle,

My Las Vegas

There’s something about the idea of cooking that just brings warm, happy feelings deep into my soul. Sure, the act of eating makes me happy, but when I think of the fun part of the process of cooking — the special gadgets, the flavorful combinations, the time-proven methods and bizarre rituals
