Sunday, Sept. 21: Tacoma Loves Coffee

The rapid growth of Valhalla Coffee Company, which includes shipments overseas, forced A.J. Anderson to relocate his operation from his embedded situation at the former Mandolin Café to the small storefront on Sixth Avenue. Anderson thinks in terms of flavor profiles and uses adjectives such as "robust, rich, and acidic"

Friday, Sept. 19: il sogno del marinaio

Does it matter what Mike Watt does? The guy has so much cred that he could spend the rest of his career covering Hanoi Rocks! tunes in a crushed velour jumpsuit and the indie kids would still wet themselves. And for good reason - this is friggin - Mike Watt,

Thursday, Sept. 18: Art + Science Salon

Talk is all the rage nowadays. First TED, whomever he is, opened his trap and popularized speaking events around the country. Then Neil deGrasse Tyson jumped on the lecture circuit. And now it looks like a new Pokemon named Pecha Kucha is getting in on the action by coming to

Theater Review: The motormouthed farce of "The School for Lies"

We're all intimately familiar with the sort of boorish character that lets every insulting thought that passes through his mind fly out at inappropriate times, only to have him fall back on the supposedly exonerating excuse that he was "just being honest." Is it better to be truthful to the

Theater Review: "And Then There Were None"

Lakewood Playhouse opens their 76th season with a bang with Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None. With such an ominous title (and with Christie's legacy), director Rick Hornor and the ensemble cast had their work cut out for them pulling this classic "whodunnit" together. Creating suspense while giving enough

Sen. Patty Murray fights for child care at American Lake Veterans Hospital

There are a lot of appointments that veterans attend where children are not permitted.

The American Lake facility opened in September 2011

The sweetened punch of The Zags

One of the first vinyl LPs I ever purchased - back when I was in the habit of grazing through the discount bins and picking up anything that looked vaguely familiar from years listening to classic rock - was Singles - 45's and Under by Squeeze. It's a near-perfect collection

Moonlighters of the South Sound music scene

Everyone knows that musicians have to be a certain level of crazy to be in the field. They have to sacrifice normal hours, humility and pieces of their very soul to survive on stage. Then, you have musicians who play in more than one band. You know those are the certifiable

Chick-fil-Yah or Nah?

I have never been so torn in my life. Chick-fil-A is coming to Tacoma and OHMYGOD I can't wait. The food in America's Southern states is to die for, even the damn fast food - including Whataburger, Taco Bueno, Schlotzky's and Chick fil-A, Tacoma's soon-to-be fast food baby. What pains me

Red Scarf Revolution

History is the greatest teacher. It teaches us how to start conversations, creates understanding and awareness and motivates change. Most of all, history teaches us to connect to each other in meaningful and poignant ways through ideas, dialog and the human experience. One Tacoma man believes deeply in all the teachings history

Thursday, Sept. 25: Nacosta

Astral, visceral, ethereal - all of these "al" words describe Los Angeles indie rock band Nacosta. Synthy, dancey and poppy describe them, too. Releasing their first album this past spring, Under the Half Moon is full of harmonic tendencies, resulting in dreamy songs, backed by solid instrumental work. The song

Saturday, Sept. 20: The Zags

The Zags are a prime example of the kind of devotees that worship at the feet of the perfect pop song. It's not surprising that the band, hailing fro Portland, has received so many comparisons to Squeeze, though they've only been around for a little over a year. In that
