Where to smoke a hookah in Tacoma

From balconies to boat docks, crowded dorms to living rooms floors, I've embarked on more hookah-based adventures than I'd care to admit. Though my experiences numbered high in social gatherings, I'd never really ventured into the public-scape: the hookah lounge. That was all going to change.

Dear Drink: La Favorite Ambre Rhum Agricole

Dear La Favorite Ambre Rhum Agricole, When I ignored you and ran off to shot photos of Billy Stoops, it was inconsiderate. When I didn't sip you for a good five minutes, it was rude. When I shoved you to the side to scribble (literally scribble) some notes, causing a squeaking

Best of gluten-free dining

  Many people are going gluten-free out of necessity or by choice, and local restaurants and bakeries are taking note by providing patrons with gluten-free menus and options worthy of praise. From sandwiches and burgers to pizza and cupcakes, these eateries are favorites among the gluten conscious for providing food that

Hannah Levin - Tacoma to today

If you've had your ear anywhere close to the heart of the Northwest music scene in the last 10-15 years, you've heard of Hannah Levin. You know she's a DJ for KEXP's Seek and Destroy and Audioasis, you've read her words in The Stranger, Seattle Weekly and City Arts, and

Swoon, Tacoma

I'll be the first to admit that the Tacoma music scene tends to work in waves, dipping down during certain lean periods, and overflowing with warmth and creativity during our fat periods. At this stage in Tacoma's continued march toward some vague future utopia of musical community, one entity that

The Fame Riot

Less than one year ago, I met Shazam "Tea Time" Watkins and Liz Scarlett, the faces of Tacoma electro-pop band THE FAME RIOT. When I first encountered the glamorous duo, it was coincidentally right before the release of their first single, "Heart Stray." Watkins told me about the track, and

Friday, March 8: Candle Lit series featuring Damien Jurado

Friday, at Urban Grace Church in Tacoma, The Warehouse kicks off its 2013 Candle Lit series with the super dynamic and super talented Damien Jurado with guests Jake Hemming and Amelia Saakian.

Friday, March 8: Red Jacket Mine

By the time "Amy," the lead-off track on Red Jacket Mine's latest album, reaches the totally over-the-top organ breakdown, I'm completely sold on whatever Red Jacket Mine is doing. That organ solo hearkens back to the ballsy pop-mindedness of old guards like Joe Jackson, Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe. At

Sunday, March 10: Bruce Molsky

Bruce Molsky plays a mean fiddle. In one YouTube video, he sawed the hair right off his bow! Speaking of shredding, he tears up a banjo and guitar with the same vigor. And when he throws his voice in the mix, the combination is a complete expression of old-time

Through May 26: "Drawing Line Into Form"

The latest exhibition at Tacoma Art Museum, "Drawing Line into Form: Works on Paper by Sculptors from the BNY Mellon Collection," explores the importance of drawing as a creative tool for sculptors. The drawings in this show go far beyond studies for sculptures. In fact, there are few actually studies in the

Tuesdays: Food and wine pairings

Trying an unacquainted wine can be a costly journey - especially difficult for those who wrestle with the big C word. Yes, commitment. You like what you like and ordering a glass of vino that you're unfamiliar with when dining out simply is not an option. Fear no

What's The word?: Sonny Bonoho will represent the 253 at SXSW

Sonny Bonoho - one of the few Tacoma artists to break into the underground national hip-hop scene - has been busy preparing new material for this year's SXSW, which is in Austin, Texas March 12-17. I thought it would be a good idea to bring to light what Bonoho has
