Rumors Wine Bar

"I came up with the name Rumors because anytime I have been in a bar setting, that's where rumors get started," says Stephanie Perry, owner of Rumors Wine Bar in downtown Olympia.  The cute and cozy little bar has been conveniently located at 203 E. Fourth Ave. since August 2012. Perry says

"The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood" delights all ages

It's difficult to say which members of the audience had a better time at Olympia Family Theater's production of The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood. Written by Mary Lynn Dobson, the play follows the basic Robin Hood plot but with the addition of some creative license has been described

Wednesdays: $2 wells

Wednesdays: $2 wells

In 2011, readers of this fine rag voted the Top of Tacoma Bar and Cafe the best bar in Tacoma. This was due in no small part to its well drink Wednesdays. Two dollar well drinks after 7 p.m. Are you kidding? That's, like, riding the train

Wednesdays: Think and drink

Pub trivia nights can either ignite the party or stifle the mood. McNamara's Pub & Eatery in DuPont does everything possible to avoid being a major buzz kill. Every Wednesday McNamara's Pub starts team trivia at 7 p.m. Irish-inspired food helps trivia players stock up on

The Rockford Files: Top 5 all-ages venues in the South Sound

Speaking from experience, there's nothing more frustrating than being barred from seeing a favorite local band due to that pesky little "21+" fine print at the bottom of the flyer. As if being of legal drinking age has some sort of positive correlation with music appreciation. Yes, I realize that

What's The Word?: Easiah is the real scrappy hustler

The world is forever changing. Remember when it was standard procedure to burn CDs or get some CDs of your album made? This is happening less and less as most music has fully moved onto and become digital. This affects Tacoma in many ways. One thing happening is the emergence

Horse Bodies and the story of Hard Rock Rising

Horse Bodies, like the centaur creatures that inspired the band's name and some of the songs, is magical. And by magical, I mean bad ass - mostly rock, with a '70s lean, part punk and maybe even a sprinkle of folk and blues. Horse Bodies is the type of band

HeyDay Cafe and the Olympia Farmers Market are now open

All the telltale signs of an Olympia spring are here. The cherry blossoms are in bloom, the Evergreen students have come out of their damp dorms and the Olympia Farmers Market is gearing up for another year of food, music and fun. Opening day is Thursday, April 4 and produce vendors

Saturday, April 6: Gems

Gems will be releasing their new 12", Tall Mountain, on Saturday. While they sound good on record, the best way to take in Gems is to see the band live. Made up of two DJs and two drummers, it manages to pull off the neat trick of the two-drummer band

Saturday, April 6: Party Mountain

Having just heard the name of the band, Party Mountain, what kind of music would you imagine it plays? I bet you'd be pretty close. Craggy, shambolic rock that lends itself perfectly to the swilling of vast quantities of beer just about sums it up. Though the band has only

Sunday, April 7: Kareem Kandi Band

Saxophonist Kareem Kandi's sound alone is enough to clear the room of contenders. Size is not per se of much value if it isn't personal, unique, sacrosanct. Kandi's sound is virtually unrelated to the roomy traditions of soul saxes, honking saxes or deep-chested boudoir ballad saxes. It derives from the

Whim W'Him in T-town

  If you haven't seen modern dance, you'll be surprised how much more exciting and beautiful it is than you thought. It's not three lines of pink tutus. You don't need an art degree to understand it. Dance can be relevant. Dance can be modern and accessible. Dance can comment on

Michael Johnson's new sculptural installation "You Are Here" at Kittredge Gallery

The fascinating thing about Michael Johnson's new sculptural installation at Kittredge Gallery is that you can see it from many perspectives, literally and metaphorically. The installation is in the smaller back gallery. Viewed through the double open doors from the larger front gallery it can be taken in in a
