At the Tacoma City Marathon May 1, most runners will shed their backpacks before the starting line to lighten the load they carry through the 26.2 miles.  One person, preparing to run his first competitive marathon, will do the exact opposite by hoisting a 22 kg (48.5 pound) rucksack onto

Hot popcorn

The hot summer movie season is upon us! Captain America: Civil War, aka the Marvel Comics conflict that'll instigate a pair of Infinity War epics, kicks it off May 6. We know it'll be great already, thanks to overseas critics who saw it first. Thus, we can recommend it to

Epic Threepenny

Epic Threepenny

German playwright Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956) was one serious dude. He called for a new form of live entertainment: "epic theater," in which empathetic identification with the characters was downplayed in favor of sociopolitical reflection. The characters represented movements, not individuals. The audience was meant to feel distanced from the action,

Idyllic Kubota Garden

We first visited Kubota Garden only hours after Prince went away. Restoration was desperately needed. Few South Sounders, it seems, have ever heard of Kubota Garden. The park doesn't go out of its way to announce its presence, but it still seems unfair. The suburban hideaway is an easy drive from

Arts

Myth, mundane and more

First impressions upon entering a gallery are often misleading. Art that might dazzle at first glance often turns out to be flashy but without substance, and works that may be off-putting could be too new or too outside the ordinary to be appreciated until you've had time to study it

Smokes and joy rides

Most of my friends have become relatively settled people, growing out of endless partying and incredibly long nights - I know I have. It's just a natural process of getting just the right amount of restlessness out of your system as you age into your late ‘20s. But, there were

A chic teriyaki joint

Announcer:  There are strip mall teriyaki joints and then there are well-decorated pan-Asian eateries that redefine dining next to the Starbucks and Farmers Insurance office.  Hot Ginger in Lacey is nicely designed with attractive lighting and a feel of upscale that takes the diners a little by surprise.

Songs of the '50s and '60s

Smokey Joe's Cafe is a musical revue showcasing 39 pop standards by the great songwriting team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. It's rock and roll; it's rhythm and blues; it's the song track of the 1950s and early '60s with dancing and costumes but no story line or dialogue. When it played on Broadway 20 years

You know that friend? The one who comes over for a party but doesn't have a clue it's long past time to leave? Having had too much to drink, they rant about some mean ex and keep raiding the fridge. No. End. In. Sight. Well this week I'm on pins

Leavenworth in the summer

Leavenworth is most known for its annual Oktoberfest, but don't dismiss this Bavarian mountain town in the spring and summer. Situated in the middle of the Cascades almost right between Seattle and Spokane, Leavenworth has it all - proximity to trails and rivers, an adorable town filled with Bavarian appeal

Suds and fun in the sun

Nothing conjures up idealized visions of summer quite like the idea of a festival in the park ... unless maybe it's a beer festival in the park (or some equally festive venue.)  This summer's beer festival season is heating up to be a great one, with events ranging from beer-sipping

Summer in Washington state

Around here, summer means getting outdoors, enjoying and doing. And whether that means hiking up a steep, switch-back trail with a beautiful panoramic view waiting for you on the Olympics or the Cascades, or feeling the tug of a six-pound salmon hitting your bait while fishing on the Puget Sound, there's
