Meat on a stick

ANNOUNCER: If you haven’t driven in Northeast Tacoma for a while, the growth of homes may amaze you — one subdivision after the other. Unfortunately, worthy restaurants haven’t followed the same pattern. The Cliff House and Lobster Shop still produce excellent food, but they were rooted long before the section

Beer frame of mind

Anyone who has ever been to more than one bar in their life has seen a patron or two who just doesn’t fit the whole vibe of the joint — whose character doesn’t fit that of the watering hole. That might be man in a cowboy hat at a sushi

Seafood and wine

As weeks go, this one for me was pretty good. Disregard the fact that I punctured my right index finger with a shard of broken glass and can barely type while said finger throbs like a S.O.B. All and all I’m pretty happy. Much of this happiness is due to

Streetcar rolls again

The American theater scene has few plays that will be around for another 100 years. There are a lot of good plays, don’t get me wrong. But they are largely so tied to their place or time that the scripts might be a bit dated and the characters out of

Another juried show

All juried shows are alike: a few outstanding artworks, a whole bunch of so-so stuff, and a few really bad pieces. The sixth annual juried art exhibit at The Gallery at Tacoma Community College is no exception. I’ll talk about the good stuff. Ron Hinson’s untitled painted construction does not stand

Head to the beach

The sun may sink at night, but the air still smolders with that muggy summer feeling that your skin and hair have grown to despise. If you’re looking to get doused, check out Toscanos this month. Every Tuesday in July the Puyallup café and wine bar hosts a beach party

Rock ‘N Glow

This week I’ve decided to focus on a topic that should be of interest to every single one of you readers, whether you’re young or young-at-heart. Sometimes it’s not the newest stuff in town that’s the best. Often our community amenities that have stood the test of time are really where

Carmen stays cool

As evidenced by the fact that I currently have full freckles, raccoon eyes from my blue-blocker shades, and sun-kissed skin, I’m so sincerely enjoying all of this sunny weather. The primary downfall to it all is that I have to work so much during the week when the sun is shining

A plot thickened

Roman de Gare is French for what we call an “airport novel,” but it’s virtually the opposite. In a good airport novel, the plot plows you through safety-belt demonstrations, $5 “snacks” and lists of connecting flights. In Roman de Gare, the plot has a way of braking to a halt

I know, I know, there are at least 765 million hairdressers, teriyaki joints and manicure places in and around South Puget Sound. When half of these haidressers are located in Tacoma, you might wonder why in the hell would I choose to pick on little ol’ Karen O’Donnell instead of
