Sailing with the 2/75th

The Pointe du Hoc Foundation plans on tacking hard into the wind, putting as much canvas into the wind as it sails on Puget Sound. You are invited. The foundation invites all interested parties and individuals to join it on Aug. 27 as it hosts the "Ranger Regatta" on Puget Sound at

Art on the Ave eats

One of my favorite things to do is to walk the different events and festivals and partake in all the different tasty offerings. Each event always has a little different feel and taste appeal to it, and Art on the Ave this Sunday on Tacoma's 6th Ave is no different.

Capital Lakefair - 5 days of fun

An Olympia tradition for more than 50 years, Lakefair is five days of can't-miss summer fun!  Held every year during the third week of July, this free fair is packed with activities. This year, opening day is July 15 at noon, and the fun continues until July 19, when the

Friday, Jan. 7: Owen Hart

We Recommend

Friday, Jan. 7: Owen Hart

Musically, Hart is relentlessly intense, serving up richly layered core-suffixed metal with flamboyant Slayer-esque guitar licks, spastic time changes, breakneck drumming and blood-curdling barbarian vocals. It's also characteristically Northwestern - the first sound heard on Earth Control (due out Jan. 18 on Vitriol Records) is rain dripping

Hometown antiheroes

Music

Hometown antiheroes

"Meth metal" band Owen Hart have a talent for demanding attention, whether through the aggro assault of their music or with disarmingly twisted, comical track titles. They're as heavy as they are heavily self-aware; even their name has a morbid, winking quality, deriving from the famed WWF wrestler who plummeted

Mondays: Man Day

Nightlife It List

Mondays: Man Day

Fast Eddie Felson from the 1961 classic The Hustler wasn't good with booze, money or women. But he could sure shoot a mean game of pool, and that made all the difference. Malarkey‘s Pool & Brew offers Man Day Mondays with half-priced burgers, 25 percent off drinks and free pool

Mondays: Rockaraoke

Nightlife It List

Mondays: Rockaraoke

My hopes are admittedly high for Monday night Rockaraoke at Jazzbones. A chance to sing onstage with a live band, cheap Miller High Life and a valid excuse to drink on a Monday (!) night? Yes, yes and, oh God, yes. But fantasies of wooing a thoughtful Jazzbones crowd are quickly

Five places to tour water vessels

The Puget Sound is a maritime region. Even if you're not a boater, you can still delve into the local maritime heritage in plenty of ways - some of the best of which are festivals, museums and actual water vessels. Get up close and personal with submarines, Navy destroyers or

August Strindberg's Miss Julie

Stage

August Strindberg's Miss Julie

Strindberg's classic play Miss Julie was extremely controversial when first produced in France at the end of the 19th century. This newly adapted version by Niclas Olson's New Muses Theatre Company and performed in Tacoma's Dukesbay Theater in the Merlino Arts Center building, is dark and slightly confusing, but definitely

Rockaraoke: Sigma Alpha Jazzbones

My hopes are admittedly high for Monday night Rockaraoke at Jazzbones. A chance to sing onstage with a live band, cheap Miller High Life and a valid excuse to drink on a Monday (!) night? Yes, yes and, oh God, yes. But fantasies of wooing a thoughtful Jazzbones crowd are quickly

ADVICE GODESS: Extremely Old Spice

QUESTION: I'm a 40-something married woman with an unwanted admirer. Last year, an 80ish married man, a member of my literary club, called me, confessed his passion for me, and begged me to have a romantic dinner with him. I reluctantly made plans to meet "Romeold" for coffee, intending to

Dew the Waves

The Fourth of July is one of the busiest days of the year for any theme park. That's especially true if the holiday's unseasonably hot or lands on a Saturday. Imagine the mayhem if a park boasts, not only roller coasters and thrill rides, but also a full-size water park.
