Monday, April 2: Striped Water Poets

Monday, that most put-upon of weekdays, has gotten a bad rap. Yeah, going back to the office stinks, but the first day of the week also happens to be the best one for a good, invigorating talk. Think about it: You're still fresh from your weekend, and you haven't yet

Saturday, April 7: National Beer Day Celebration

Hop head. Sounds like a euphemism for a speed addict, no? Or a professional pogo stick stunt artist. Maybe a bunny-loving furry. Well, it's none of those things. Hops go in beer, and hop heads like 'em bitter. Meet some Saturday, April 7 on National Beer Day. The Harmon Taproom

Saturday, April 7: Community Art Day

Tacoma is a living, breathing example of the powerful positive impact art can have on a community. So it's not surprising to see Saturday bringing an event at Tacoma Art Place simply known as Community Art Day. And the title pretty much says it all. Expect workshops, demonstrations and family

Monday, April 2: Kamikaze Queens

Willkommen. Welcome to the Kamikaze Queens. The Berlin punk cabaret exploring the bacchanalian club atmosphere of '20s Germany is coming to Tacoma tonight.

Ask Amy: You lite up my life

QUESTION: This man I've been dating didn't want anything serious. I don't either. I explained that I just wanted to hang out and have fun. We were going out several times a week, sleeping together at least once a week. Suddenly, he freaked, worrying I'd get attached. I reinforced that

Friday, April 6: Adult Flashlight Easter Scramble

Egg-citing times at night: Certain traditions adapt themselves as time travels on. Take the Easter egg hunt. It was fun when you were a kid - watching your parents crawl around, trying to hide a bright pink egg behind a sprinkler head. And there was always the added joy of

Tuesday, April 3: Ung Youth Sinfoni

For every semi-decent death metal band, the land of fjords and Norsetards has given the world dozens of yodeling, unlistenable fiddle, and bizarre-drum-made-from-sheep stomachs. Of course, every rule has an exception that proves its truthfulness. At the Lagerquist Concert Hall, the Ung Youth Sinfoni from Bergen, Norway returns to PLU to perform

Love it? Or shut it down?
