Drinkies: half-off wine, beer science, wine dinner

So, for those who enjoy a reduced-price bottle of vino to share (or not to share) with dinner, visit Pacific Grill (1502 Pacific Ave.) on

Pacific Northwest 2015 Winter Concert Guide

It is goddamn freezing outside! As I write this, pitiful snowflakes listlessly fall to the cold Tacoma ground, almost as if to whisper, "Get out while you still can." Winter has arrived, and with it comes the almost overpowering urge to stay inside and never, ever leave again. Fight it!

Pyrate Punx of the Puget Sound

If you are on Facebook and have a few friends in the South Sound music scene, you've probably seen them. I did and became interested enough to investigate. For a few years, some folks calling themselves the "Pyrate Punx" have been putting on shows and camping trips. These events have

The inescapable lightness of Raven Marcus

I don't know what it is, but I've grown up with a particular love for doo-wop and '50s romantic music. Of course, a large part of it has to do with being raised on the defunct 97.3 KBSG, which truly did play oldies. The latest they would extend would be

An assault on Olympia food trucks

Louis C.K.'s program Louie introduced us to the concept of a "bang-bang," in which a diner eats a full meal at a restaurant, then goes to a diner and eats a second full meal there. Ideally, the bang-banger visits establishments with differing cuisines. I'd never done that before today (not

Friday, Jan. 9: Raven Marcus

The trio of Raven Marcus, hailing from San Francisco, consists of Natalia Montana Rose Miner (vocals and mandolin), Rob Johnson (drums and percussion) and Bronwyn Dexter on bass. They describe themselves as "cowboy glam rock," which does a nice job of describing their folky approach to pop songs. With a

Tuesday, Jan. 6: Fish Breath

"Fish Breath" may be one of the most off-putting word combinations in the English language. Something tells me that the San Francisco band Fish Breath wouldn't mind that observation one bit. This is a band that leans into the abrasive. Their recent, self-titled album opens innocently enough with the ramshackle

Saturday, Jan. 3: Lakefight

Lakefight are a concentrated blast of jittery energy. The amount of churning forward momentum produced by the trio is a bit bracing at times. Comprised of guitar, drums and keyboard, the sound maintains a spry lightness, even as it barrels ahead like a runaway train. Citing influences ranging from the
