Thursday, Jan. 16: Pacific Crest Trail lecture

I love to hike, and do it as often as my schedule, the weather, and my family allow. But I can scarcely imagine hiking all day long, day in and day out, for six months. Or four months. Or even a month. This is what "thru-hikers" on the Pacific Crest

Through Feb. 2: "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf?"

Producing this show is like saddling a dragon. I caught struggles for lines, most adroitly concealed. The blocking isn't great for performance in the round. There are patrons who won't know what to make of all its profanity, carnality and perma-drunk savagery. What unnerves most, though,

NEW SIPS AND BITES Two Tacoma restaurants have updated menus. Hilltop Kitchen (913 Martin Luther King Jr Way) has added spicy cocktails such as its Hot Pants - a boozy concoction of ghost pepper infused cachaca, grapefruit juice, falernum and sparkling wine. Bite Restaurant in the Hotel Murano (1320 Broadway) has

Cinematic magic

Think back to the first time you ever went to the movies. Remember what it was like standing, (or being carried), in line, squinting at the squares of light bulbs illuminating the brightly-colored one-sheets in the lobby, listening to the atonal melody of pinball machines and arcade games playing in

Army restructuring Wounded Warrior Program

In response to the decreased deployments and impending downsizing, the Army will begin restructuring its warrior transition units. Warrior transition units are located at major military treatment facilities and provide support to wounded, ill and injured soldiers who require at least six months of rehabilitative care and complex medical management.

The Abigails bring more than fire and brimstone

Doing research about the Abigails is a fun tunnel to fall down. In interviews I found, frontman Warren Thomas is frequently, gleefully misleading when answering questions, when he's not actively making shit up about the history of the band. In our conversation, though, it was a relief to find him

Carla Paine shows at Olyphant Art Supply

Carla Paine's paintings at Olyphant Art Supply in Olympia are as rich and luscious as the settings for her portraits and still-lifes. They harken back to a time when artists were considered to have been chosen and blessed by God, when they painted their pictures for kings and popes and

Cooper Point Public House strives for the Northwest feel

You know how you can walk into an establishment and just get a good vibe about it? When something in the atmosphere - the lighting, the feng shui, the colors and space flowing just right - and you know you want to hang out there? Well that was my immediate impression

Bourbon Street Bar and Grill adds spice to Puyallup

It's a fascinating journey to witness the rebirth of a restaurant from the bones of a completely different operation. This scenario played out over the last several months as Mike and Karen de Alwis transformed a deserted gas station lot in Puyallup into a lovely dining space called the Bourbon

Some Like It Hot: Where to warm up in the South Sound

There's a new vocabulary word in town, South Sounders, and it is surely to be on everyone's frozen and chapped lips this winter season: brumous: (broo'mes) adjective, of gray skies and winter days; filled with heavy clouds or fog; relating to winter or cold sunless weather. Sigh. The only thing that's fun about

Tuesday, Jan. 21: The Abigails

The Abigails are fixtures in the Southern California psych-rock garage scene. Thomas has been a member of bands like the Growlers and the Grand Elegance, and fellow Abigail Kyle Mullarky has been in the Starlite Desperation - all bands that occupy a sort of LSD haze. Additionally,

Saturday, Jan. 18: Whelp

Is Whelp really a band? Yes and no. It's not exactly what is the extent of Whelp's existence outside of the Internet and the imagination, but Saturday's show at the Northern would be a good time to find out. What is known about Whelp is that they have created an

Saturday, Jan. 18: The Outlaws: A Waylon Jennings Tribute

Bobble Tiki's hula girl alarm clock woke him up last Thursday with the sound of Waylon Jennings singing "I'm a Ramblin' Man."  No matter how foul Bobble Tiki's mood, that song has always made Bobble Tiki feel good - cocky, strong, self-assured.  When it comes ripping out of a jukebox,
