Big Beer Festival (sold out)

Ed. note: The Big Beer Festival is sold out. The brilliant minds that brought you the wildly successful Tacoma's Craft Beer Festival are going bigger. By bigger, I mean bigger beers. By bigger beers, I mean stronger beers. The first annual Big Beer Festival will consume the Foss Waterway Seaport -

Red Wine and Chocolate tour through the Olympic Peninsula wineries

Red wine and chocolate are the stuff of which dreams are made. And they should be - they're delightful. Expansive mountain vistas and the Strait of Juan de Fuca ain't too shabby either. If the mere mention of such things lights your fire, then perhaps set aside some time this weekend

"Pizza Man" doesn't deliver

Pizza Man, directed by and starring Pamela Arndt, has much to recommend it. Amanda Navarez's delicate house music is a welcome deviation from the usual canned stuff. The prerecorded music, when it does kick in, is apt and evocative. The show has a point of view, and its tech elements

Friday, Feb. 15: Black Marble

As a mission statement, you couldn't find one much clearer than "Cruel Summer," the lead-off track on the latest release by Black Marble. As if the title didn't do well enough to harken back to the early '80s, from the moment that stiff drum machine meets up with those pulsing,

If you flipped through the calendar from McCoy's Tavern around 10 years ago, when any given weekend promised a fucking rock show, Mico De Noche would be one of the bands listed, scrawled across dried beer, the letters slightly blurred. And on those show days, the buzz about the super

Saturday, Feb. 16: Dancing with the Tacoma Stars

Dancing with the Stars is a TV show that pairs professional dancers with famous people - stars who often wouldn't know the bunny hop if it bit them in the ass. Each show, an unlucky couple gets voted off. By the end of the season, the only
