Saturday, Jan. 18: Dining at Downton: A Trial By Fork

If you're a fan of Downton Abbey, and have craved receiving a fancy engraved invitation that reads, "Lord and Lady Hinklebottom request your company for dinner at Hinklebottom Manor in East Thrappingstock," then this is your lucky day. OK, "Hinklebottom Manor" is actually the Key Center Pierce County Library and

Saturday, Jan. 18: Oshogatsu in Olympia: Japanese New Year Celebration

Do you know what Shodo is? How about Sumi-e? Tako? Ikebana? Well, you have to know origami - don't you? OK, quickly, in reverse order, they are: paper-folding, flower-arranging, kite-making, ink-painting and calligraphy. Confused? Excellent. Now you can go to the Oshogatsu in Olympia: Japanese New Year Celebration to get

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

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.

Retired Maj. Michael O'Shea's novel tells an un-Hollywood account of the Vietnam War

Back in the 1960s, a superhero movie gave us Adam West with white eyebrows drawn onto his Bat-Cowl facing off against a goofy, cackling Joker whose joke buzzer would knock you out for at least a full 60 seconds. Nowadays, audiences prefer a little more "realism" in their escape fiction. In

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
