Ring of Fire at Centerstage

Ring of Fire at Centerstage in Federal Way is wonderful entertainment, well worth the drive. Adapted from the Broadway Production by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Jason Edwards, it is a hybrid falling somewhere between a play and a musical revue. It tells the life story of Johnny Cash through his

Fire up the pizza

Announcer: Elemental Pizza branched out of Seattle and opened its first South Sound location this past Fall, bringing more wood-fired pizza to the area but with a more gritty, industrial, Tacomaness feel about it.
