Are our gay bars dumps?

If you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, then is it fair to judge a gay community by its bars? What could a person assume about the South Sound’s gay community when walking into Tacoma’s Club Silverstone or Jakes on 4th in Olympia for the first time?

Art everywhere

Watch out when you’re walking, you might step on the art. It’s all over the place, more often than not hidden in plain sight. Sometimes hidden by virtue of being overly familiar; your eyes just take it in and spit it out without ever processing it through the brain. Like

Ask Amy Alkon

Battlefield girth In a recent column, you validated a woman's desire to lose weight solely to meet her husband's needs. Your encouraging her to take off pounds and get plastic surgery for him is an insult to yourself and every woman who reads your disgraceful article. I disagree with your notion

Bug Nasties

As much as I should really focus on the present with a band like the Bug Nasties, I can’t help but descend into the past for a moment when writing about them. The drive behind the Nasties comes from frontman James Burdyshaw, who’s something of a Northwest rock artifact even

Bobble Tiki has heard it from multiple sources, and he knows it to be true. In Tacoma, anyone can be an artist, or at least claim to be an artist without fearing Tacomans will call bull. This isn’t a new revelation. It’s understood to be true. Just this week Bobble

Escape to the islands

Lakewood Playhouse is currently staging the Caribbean-themed musical Once On This Island. The acting was solid but not overall stellar. The singing was good, with a few mulligans here and there. The set design was simple but effective. All that totaled up, and I loved it more than the sum

Stadium Bistro Chef Peter Weikel laughed. He laughed for a long time. Then his business partner and father, Peter (same name) laughed too. They shared a nice family moment as I sat there dumbly waiting for an answer. “No, seriously,” I prodded after a few more seconds. “Describe for me what

For those about to rock

History has shown us what an incredible force music can be, and I’m here to assert that this powerful form of art is alive and transforming our own humble Tacoma in ways that you might not be putting together. That’s why Tacoma’s music scene is this week’s Scene of the Crime. This
