Insomniacs

As a fan of the blues, Bobble Tiki often hears it, and sometimes even thinks it himself. Blues is an old man’s music. For one, Bobble Tiki doesn’t have children, but he sees plenty of the little shits when Mrs. Tiki drags him to the mall. Bobble Tiki may not be

The Corner Bar

Bandito Betty, as I’m sure most of you know, slings beer part time at the Parkway Tavern. For our dive bar experience this week she suggested we stop by The Corner Bar, which is the bastard child of Jeff, Parkway Tavern owner. The Corner Bar is located in a somewhat shady

The art of dentistry: Brooks Dental Studio

“We wanted to do something with the extra space,” explains Dr. Jamie Brooks, who, with her husband, Tim, is putting the finishing touches on the Tacoma Theater District’s newest addition — Brooks Dental Studio. Some of that space has become an art gallery. Jamie and Tim bought the downtown location that

Where to smoke a hookah in Tacoma

From balconies to boat docks, crowded dorms to living rooms floors, I've embarked on more hookah-based adventures than I'd care to admit. Though my experiences numbered high in social gatherings, I'd never really ventured into the public-scape: the hookah lounge. That was all going to change.

Tuesdays: Food and wine pairings

Trying an unacquainted wine can be a costly journey - especially difficult for those who wrestle with the big C word. Yes, commitment. You like what you like and ordering a glass of vino that you're unfamiliar with when dining out simply is not an option. Fear no

Dear Drink: La Favorite Ambre Rhum Agricole

Dear La Favorite Ambre Rhum Agricole, When I ignored you and ran off to shot photos of Billy Stoops, it was inconsiderate. When I didn't sip you for a good five minutes, it was rude. When I shoved you to the side to scribble (literally scribble) some notes, causing a squeaking

Eating on canvas

A locally celebrated chef told me recently that cooking had more to do with craftsmanship than art. “Saying it is art sounds hoity-toity to me,” says this chef. “Cooking is a teachable skill — you can teach anyone the basics of cooking like you can teach them woodworking.”

Street art

The terms “cutting edge” and “street art” are tossed around a lot. The current show at Black Front Gallery is the real thing. These artists are like feral cats brought inside and trained — only everybody knows you can’t really train an alley cat. OK, I exaggerate. Only some of these

Drugs and music and sex

There are only a few shows I look forward to seeing over and over again. They are shows that always seem to have a little bit of something new and yet familiar. Cabaret is one of those shows. Maybe it is because I yearn for a time when Germany ruled

Ask Amy

Dis dis bang bang I'm 29, as is the woman I've been seeing for three months. After she kept pulling away when I tried to kiss her, she confessed that kissing is very, very intimate to her. She'll actually sleep with someone before kissing them. In fact, we've been having sex

Best of gluten-free dining

  Many people are going gluten-free out of necessity or by choice, and local restaurants and bakeries are taking note by providing patrons with gluten-free menus and options worthy of praise. From sandwiches and burgers to pizza and cupcakes, these eateries are favorites among the gluten conscious for providing food that

Hannah Levin - Tacoma to today

If you've had your ear anywhere close to the heart of the Northwest music scene in the last 10-15 years, you've heard of Hannah Levin. You know she's a DJ for KEXP's Seek and Destroy and Audioasis, you've read her words in The Stranger, Seattle Weekly and City Arts, and

Swoon, Tacoma

I'll be the first to admit that the Tacoma music scene tends to work in waves, dipping down during certain lean periods, and overflowing with warmth and creativity during our fat periods. At this stage in Tacoma's continued march toward some vague future utopia of musical community, one entity that
