Saturday, Nov. 1: Art of the Fur Trade

They'll be there with their buckskins, their powderhorns and their tinware. Folks in period dress with monikers such as Chauncey, Jededian, Booshway, Eleanor, Bear Legs, Prudence and Huck will demonstrate blacksmithing, cooking, spinning, basket weaving and woodworking, along with a variety of music. All but Huck are re-enactor artisans assuming

Friday, Oct. 31: The Rusty Cleavers

Vampires, alien invasion, monsters and Frankenstein: these are the things of which Misfits songs are made. And that approach makes the Misfits a one-of-a-kind band. The Misfits started during the dawn of the punk movement in 1977, and taking the title of Marilyn Monroe's last movie as their name, the

Through Nov. 16: "TEA"

During the American occupation of Japan at the end of World War II, more than 100,000 native Japanese women married American soldiers. Between 1946 and 1960, they came to the United States with their husbands and were settled at remote Army posts around the country, one of which, Fort Riley,

Through Nov. 30: Nathan Barnes' "Open Ended"

For lack of a better term, I'm tempted to call Nathan Barnes' paintings pop surrealism, but his paintings are about 10 times better than most of what falls into that category. And yes, there really is such a thing. You can find it on Google and Wikipedia.

Self-guided eating tour of Olympia's Capitol Way

This isn't just a story about Olympia restaurants: It's also a self-guided walking tour of Capitol Way, Olympia's answer to Main Street. The stretch from where the road begins at the Olympia Farmers Market south to the State Capital Museum on 21st Avenue is a great walk to take to get

Theater Review: Dial "M" for Murder is no whodunit

Tacoma Little Theatre's staging of the classic tale of crime and betrayal, Dial "M" for Murder, draws your eye chiefly to three things: a telephone positioned on a desk by a window, an apartment's front door looming in the background and a green handbag resting on a davenport. These three

Tacoma Locavore Awards

Some people don't like the word locavore for a variety of reasons. Played out. Not real. Meh. I wonder if it is because they don't know what a locavore really is. It's an animal, friends.  Look, like the name or not, this creature isn't the mythical Bigfoot - it is real

In addition to the 97th and 313th Airlift Squadron crews who've

Where Tacoma bartenders eat after work

Being a veteran of the restaurant industry - aka former boozeslinger - smiling server-type for many years now, combined with the fact that I've been hitting the streets for the foodnik scoop for several years, I have befriended many a bartender. I like to pretend this is because of the

Strip mall dining in Pierce County

I have a weird relationship with strip malls. Most of the time, they are just a blur of cement parking lots, a gross overuse of the colors red and orange, strips of benign buildings hooked together, long and segmented, like a giant urban caterpillar. Sometimes, I need to stop in and conduct

We all have food cravings, right? But what if you had a food craving so intense that the intensity turned to obsession? That obsession turned to mission. And that mission was your life (well, for a short time anyway). Last summer, my husband and I literally gorged ourselves with these teeny little

Eating and drinking bread on South Hill

During my ongoing attempt to travel the culinary world without having to actually travel, I have re-discovered the classic American side dish called "Pepto Bismol."  Something is seriously twisted and not right with my digestive system, especially when dealing with my latest non-domestic food quest. I can handle a greasy

Pig Snout shames us all

It occurred to me, after living on this planet for 18 years, and after loving music for the majority of that time, that I had no earthly clue of how to actually play an instrument. So, being the lazy under-achiever that I am, I picked up a ukelele, figuring that

Night of the Living Tribute Bands 2014

My first concert, reluctantly attended with my star-struck mother and grandmother, was Neil Diamond. Yes, that Neil Diamond, oft referred to lovingly as the Jewish Elvis - and I was blown the hell away. How could somebody so ancient take the stage with such charisma? (He was younger then than

Music Critics' Picks: Jeffrey Lewis, Hell's Belles, Buddy Jackson

[ANTI-FOLK] + SAT, NOV. 1 I have a soft spot in my heart for Jeffrey Lewis. I first saw him perform in a downtown venue - the long-gone Stereolounge - shortly after I started getting underage drunk and going to see punk shows. Someone from the Drug Purse (can't remember who)
