In December, Bloom owners Mark Crowley and Maria Miskoski will celebrate the store’s four-year anniversary.  “We based the whole design of the store around our lotus lights,” explains Miskoski. “We

Sandwich city

ANNOUNCER: Not too long ago Quiznos Sub Shop arrived on the scene and folks wondered if they really needed another sandwich shop (Subway had already dominated the local chain scene). Then Panera came to town, and again folks wondered — why? Earlier this year, in a not-so-convenient space, Jimmy Johns

A good spore

I often comment about weather in my column because it can have such a great impact in what we eat and how we cook. For instance, this crazy warm and wet spell we’ve been having is prime mushroom growing weather. And oh how I like mushrooms.  However, my patience has been

An Evening in Vermont

Last week, I had a lumberjack for the first time. Too much information? Well, consider that the lumberjack in question was a crêpe the size of a vinyl record folded over slices of Vermont ham and cheddar, with the optional smattering of tart apple slices. Sitting in the kitchen of

Blood, sweat and gears

Blame gas prices. As per-gallon rates hit $4 during the summer, cars started to look like less of a convenience and more of a burden. To avoid mounting costs, some people explored rail commuting and jumped on the Sounder or Link Light Rail. Some people hopped on the bus. Some

Northwest Harvest

For the first time ever, last Friday’s MLKBallet’s MOVE! Performance was a standing-room-only, sold-out event. Seeing as how these MOVE! productions are pretty much the only means of income for our beloved, local, and free ballet center — this sellout was worth more than it’s weight in gold. Not only

In the works

It’s hard to be thankful, even with an awesome new president, a historic shift in socio-political dynamic, the recent, symbolic exorcism of several political demons, and a holiday or two right around the corner. Seasonal displays of reindeer finger puppets, Christmas lights and green and red M&Ms aren’t cheering me

It's time to start holiday shopping. Everyone's seen the Christmas tree village that’s been lingering outside of Macy's a few months too long, but the rest of Tacoma's boutiques have now caught up with the holiday spirit. I can't wait for the sweet aroma of mom's home made sticky buns-waking

Captain Jack’s Bar & Grill

It was frickin’ rainy as all get out, and I was sick to death of furniture shopping at The Old Cannery in Sumner. How many cheap pine coffee tables is this girl expected to gawk at it one afternoon? My limit was 26 cheap pine coffee tables, and I was
