Shopping at the drug store

I one-stop shop Commitment is a difficult thing to embrace in the world of cosmetics. A television ad for a sensational new mascara that promises to make my lashes look five times longer, plumper, thicker and natural recently invaded my senses. Of course, skepticism is present, but that doesn’t negate my

ArtsFund Luncheon

“Vibrant.” “Livable.” “Vital.” “Viable.” Not bad, in terms of adjectives used to describe a city where once, the best that could hope for was a local paper deeming it “gritty.” But now, this little, vibrant city of ours that could is being featured in the Smithsonian magazine as one of five places

Lots of singing this week

“sleeping beauty” “Sleeping Beauty,” a stage version of the classic tale complete with a dude in a dragon suit, is a fun show if you have some time to kill. There’s a curse. There’s a spindle. There’s a deep sleep and a charming prince out to rescue the narcoleptic royalty. Tacoma

Is this jazz?

If the words “Wayne Horvitz is going to play in Olympia” doesn’t mean much, keep reading. A multi-genre veteran, Horvitz and compatriots comprise aptly-named Sweeter than the Day.

Before the Devil Knows You're Dead

Sidney Lumet\'s "Before the Devil Knows You\'re Dead" is such a superb crime melodrama that I almost want to leave it at that. To just stop writing right now and advise you to go out and see it as soon as you can. I so much want to avoid revealing

Fort Lewis spouse a calendar girl

A woman draped in an American flag leaving just enough skin showing to capture some attention isn’t the typical image of a Fort Lewis wife one pictures, but Paige Teakell is proud of the work she does to support the troops. Teakell, also known as Cherry Lane, and two other

Food fight? Hardly

Conventional wisdom would have us believe that the rise of higher-end restaurants in Tacoma during the last few years would leave sour tastes in the mouths of the chefs at the City of Destiny\'s landmark eateries. That wisdom would be wrong. "As a resident of Tacoma, I like to see new
