[COUNTRY ROCK] + THURS, MAY 16 A Buddhist friend once told me she found great peace by sitting in a comfortable place, shutting her eyes and paying attention to nothing. She said it was like a TV screen with no picture. She'd watch whatever popped up, then watch it disappear. On

3 Drink Minimum: Lakewood Pub and Grill

Let this be your rallying cry. Let it be your new hot-button topic, a raw naked wildfire underground grassroots crusade, your juiciest of incentive programs, your inspired call to hit South Sound lounges and bars and taverns.

Best places for pie in the South Sound

Time and time again, I have been asked the question, "Where can I go to get some good pie?" It turns out that this seemingly simple food is hard to get just right. Flaky crusts, mile-high meringues and dense, delectable fillings are the ideal. Where does one go in the

Puget Sound Pizza serves capicola

Little did I know I would be getting an education on real, honest-to-absolute-goodness food when I visited downtown Tacoma's Puget Sound Pizza. Truth be told, I was too brain-fogged to think much of anything after speedily ingesting my pure chemical, pseudo-breakfast fillers - Carnation Instant Breakfast and an Eggo waffle. Ah,

ARMED FORCES DAY If you're going to celebrate Armed Forces Day Saturday with the family, you might skip the breastaurant Hooters. Hanging out with the kids at Hooters makes as much sense as watching as gathering Eyes Wide Shut on Christmas morning. However, if it's just you and your fellow Soldiers

Friday, May 17: Horse Bodies

I once wrote that Horse Bodies is the kind of band that gives you chills. Perhaps that wasn't the most accurate description. It's deeper than that - a kind of dueling-guitar, gritty-voiced, party-down kind of chill that saturates your being until you are fully engaged in the music. After releasing

With their song, "Theme From Cheers," Titus Andronicus took a desire for alcohol as an escape from the pain of everyday living and turned it into one of the great anthemic rallying cries of 2010. Patrick Stickle's impassioned plea to "give me a Guinness, give me a Keystone Light, give

Outdoor Addict: Fresh start

The Great Ankle Fiasco of 2013 is the gift that keeps on giving. At this rate it's going to be a saga worthy of a Monty Python film. I keep waiting for the Knights Who Say Ni to tell me my ransom is a shrubbery. When I pitched this column to

The big transition

The transition from the military to civilian life is challenging, regardless of branch or rank; however, it is proving to be hardest for the lower enlisted who only spend a few years serving in uniform. According to the DoD's No Vet Left Behind, Inc., more than half of homeless veterans

Seven Servicemembers whose resilience saved lives

When we talk about resilience, in an object, we're thinking about its ability to bounce back after being smashed. A racquetball pops back to "round" after squeezed. But a house, hit by a falling tree, caves in - hopefully not in a living area. A Soldier's resilience allows him/her to bounce back

Armed Forces Day 2013 events

Until 1949, the Army, Navy and the newly established Air Force each had its own day for public recognition. The single-day observance was a natural follow - on to the unification of the armed forces under one department - the Department of Defense - in 1947. Armed Forces Day did

The Tacoma Dome may well be the most recognizable landmark in the city of Tacoma. In addition to being a behemoth dome, the venue plays host to dozens of national acts each year. At first glance, the urban landscape surrounding the Tacoma Dome exudes the roughness that confirms Tacoma's unofficial
