Tacoma benders

My friends love to make fun of me about being a food snob based on all of the high-end restaurants that I frequent, but I have this one major obsession that I pretty much keep to myself. I love, LOVE tacos. Lately I’ve been talking about how all bars should serve free

The Pup Room

I’ve found another fantastic “dive bar” quality: Iron gates. Upon entrance there are floor-to-ceiling large, heavy, decorative iron gates to lock out any potential beer burglars. I noticed last week at The Pegasus’ Unicorn Room, and once again this week at the legendary Pup Room in Fife. The Pup Room is

Tiffany's Diner

Tiffany’s Diner After seeing a swanky ad for Tiffany’s Diner in Lakewood that had a depiction of Audrey Hepburn in it, I called and got what seemed like easy directions. Traffic aside, the diner was a breeze to locate, albeit there was a probable, hair-raising illegal left turn from the wrong

Two views on thriller

In any crisis situation — particularly ones that involve shootings or other lethal attacks — it’s a safe bet that witnesses to the event would each have a slightly different take on things as they recalled the frightening moment. In Vantage Point, we’re taken on an edgy, action-packed reprising of

Wintergrass

Of course I love Wintergrass, the national bluegrass festival held in our own backyard next week. It’s all about music, and speaking personally, there’s nothing more central to my existence than music. Music is my business, my hobby and my social life. Music is the bridge between my teenage daughter

12th Street Diner

12th Street Diner The 12th Street Diner shuffle: Check out the big board-style wall menu or grab a to-go menu, sit, ponder the numerous choices, approach counter, order, eight minutes later, food arrives. I will do this many, many times. The burger in a basket arrives juicy with crisp lettuce, firm slices
