Shake Shake Shake's sister store, Fish Fish Fish has been one of the most highly anticipated South Sound restaurant openings for some time now. Luckily, for those salivating in excitement as they zip by the 6th Ave. locale, the establishment is expected to open in just a few weeks, seriously.

The Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning I Am My Own Wife by Doug Wright is a strange and mesmerizing play based on the true-life story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a German transvestite and LGBTQ activist who survived the Nazis, lived through the East German Communist regime, and founded and ran not

The progression

The mid-1970s marked the birth of hip-hop, and ever since the artistic genre has expanded all around the world. Today there are many versions of hip-hop, but originally it came out as raw organic expression. Hip-hop continues to branch out, but in which way is mainstream hip-hop growing? Do we

Morning Quickie Newsletter Giveaway: "Weird Al" Yankovic (Closed)

In every issue of this fine rag my hack team of wannabe journalists and I tackle some of the most laughable criminal acts that have recently happened in our area. Then - if we're doing our job - we write about those crimes in a way that makes you chuckle,

QUESTION: My boyfriend lives in Germany, and I'm in Switzerland (a one-hour plane ride away). His close female friend is getting married, and I'm not invited to the wedding. Last spring, when we were broken up for three months, he had a fling with the bride's friend. As a courtesy

Mondays: Blues night

Nightlife It List

Mondays: Blues night

Monday is typically a black hole for nightlife. Sure, if you run a sports bar, you'll do well during the World Series or football season, but for most eating and drinking establishments, it's just dead, dead, dead. There's a darn good reason why so many bars are empty on Mondays.

Nightlife It List

Daily: Party deck

The Tides Tavern is on the waterfront in a very On the Waterfront way. The Gig Harbor institution isn't glitzy, pretentious, or expensive. There isn't beer pong, saketinis or salad bars. The Tides is simply an informal, neighborhood hangout with great pizza and chowder, friendly service and a killer view

The Voyage to Mystic Mocha

Inside The Crystal Voyage, calming music plays as fountains burble.  One west-facing fountain centered in a large window features three dolphins frolicking, spouting water. At a table, Matilda prepares to read tarot; the atmosphere in the space is conducive to that sort of thing. Underneath the shop at the Mystic Mocha Cafe,

Pin-up girls on the Avenue

Once upon a time Anthony Valenzuela collected black and white photos, the kind that were slid across the newspaper shop counter covertly wrapped in paper. These risqué, pre-Hustler, post-Betty Grable girlie photos made it into the trembling hands of their purchasers and then, years later, into Valenzuela’s. Not content with the

Carmen cleans up her act

Last week was filled with all kinds of dreamy thoughts about something you and I probably both love equally. Summer, summer, summertime! Even though I’m a devoted Washingtonian, and I really don’t mind the rain at all, there’s nothing quite like the first days of sunshine on those beautiful blue-sky breakthroughs. I love

Neighborhood nice

This week I’ll put you in my pocket and take you to a Proctor establishment with a name as sweet as it’s presence and ownership: Rosewood Cafe. This is a laid back neighborhood café that’s full for lunch and dinner. All of the faces in it are relaxed and smiling. Mine was,

Bags of Raw-r (food that is)

I feed my dogs decent food: Nutro Natural Choice Lite with glucosamine and chondroitin.  I always thought, they have the glucosamine and chondroitin for joint health, they have the protein and other good stuff to keep them well-ish, and they have the kibble-only aspect for clean white teeth and no

Long flight

The missus and I are big fans of “West Side Story” even though it is sort of quaint and predictable no matter how a director stages it. Theaters have to assume that everyone in the audience has seen the show and know what they like since, well, everyone in the

\"Whorehouse\" and \"Take Me Out\"

“Whorehouse” Those whores are at it again — getting all uppity about being a victimless crime and what not. Such is the case at Tacoma Little Theatre as it finishes its season with “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” a look at life and politics surrounding the Chicken Ranch. [Tacoma Little Theatre, June

\"Sideways\" at Blue Mouse

“Sideways” is the next film screened as part of The Cans Film Festival, the Emergency Food Network and Food Connection’s food-theme movie festival — each film matched with a coupon to a local restaurant — to raise awareness to fight hunger. Thursday, June 14, “Sideways” will screen at the Blue

Take it or leave it

If you happen to be in the neighborhood, stop by the University of Washington-Tacoma art gallery to see the installation by Brooklyn, N.Y., artist Betsy Alwin. I’ll make a wild guess that you’ll find it fascinating — for upwards of two minutes. After that, you may catch yourself yawning. I drove

A near perfect match

If “Old School” and “She’s Having a Baby” lined up 50 yards apart, sprinted at each other at full speed and collided in violently comedic-sexual fashion spawning one film (“She’s Having an Old School Baby”?), the result would be “Knocked Up.”  Of course, that would mean “Old School” and “She’s Having
