Lines are drawn

Announcer: The boys are drawing a line in the sand this week over a stop at Fresh Rolls in University Place. Jake is a fan; Jason isn't so sure. What has them up in arms and ready to call their mom to mediate? It's all over the word, fresh. Jake: True

Tenor, actor, Mandy

Actor Mandy Patinkin said director Rob Reiner gave him his choice of roles in the much-loved 1987 film adaptation of The Princess Bride. After almost three decades, it's impossible to say what may have drawn Patinkin to Spanish swordmaster Inigo Montoya in particular, but it's worth noting that Patinkin's own

'Into the Woods'

New Muses Theatre Company's Into the Woods at Dukesbay Theater is the third version of this popular Stephan Sondheim musical I have reviewed, and it is quite different in some important ways, primarily in that it is scaled down with a much smaller set in a smaller space with fewer

Horns blaring, swearing

When people think of Tom Waits, they generally conjure up a picture of the junkyard-instrument-wielding madman and, perhaps, rightfully so. After all, I was first introduced to Tom Waits through his 1988 concert film Big Time, when he was already almost a decade into his initial foray into experimental insanity.

B2's swan song

For six years, B2 Fine Art Gallery has offered Tacoma a smorgasbord of art from emerging locals to established international art stars. And now they offer up their final show before packing up and moving north to the Emerald City. The current show, "The Naturalist: A Landscape Abstraction," slightly misnamed, features

Never open?

The drive-in burger joint is as American classic as red pickup trucks and fake wrestling. That might be why they still thrive, despite giant fast food chains becoming more and more prominent over the past few decades. The key is that they're usually local operations that have a strong history,

Sleeping on the job?

Sleep deprivation is no joke; with consequences relative to both personal health and military performance, the issue of not getting enough sleep is one that should be taken seriously. Dr. Elham Rezvanian, who specializes in neurology and sleep medicine has been in the medical field for 15 years, and with

Saluting the Triple Nickel

The third time is always a charm. The Eastside Subchapter of the Captain Meriwether Lewis Chapter (CMLC) of the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) hosted its Annual Salute to the Troops, Eastside's Military Family Appreciation Day June 24 in Spanaway. The AUSA is a private, nonprofit organization that acts primarily

Wham, bam, win a Lam

Classically beautiful, enduringly elegant and Italian. Lamborghinis are the Monica Bellucci of cars. And just like the lovely Ms. Bellucci, they're hopelessly out of my league. And out of yours, too, at least until today. (Lamborghinis, I mean. Not Monica Bellucci.) Courtesy Auto Service and Tire of Tacoma is giving one

Red, White and Blue Golf Classic a success

The United Service Organizations, or USO, hosted their annual Red, White and Blue Golf Classic at The Golf Club at Newcastle, June 16, as a celebration of the Northwest branch's 50-year anniversary, but the main focus was still supporting the troops. Becki Beach, a member of the USO, said although she

Food trucks we love

When I was a kid, the only mobile food around was the ice cream truck, but today, times have changed and food trucks in the South Sound are more than just a trend, there are some solid, absolutely can't-be-beat menus out there on wheels.  The choices today are more varied

I don't want to be caught gushing like a pre-teen meeting Justin Bieber, but I can think of nothing but high-decibel superlatives when trying to write about the performances of Gretchen Boyt, Rich Garrett, John Serembe and Brad Walker in Harlequin Production's Little Shop of Horrors. I remember seeing it

Drugs and music

Drugs and music, in certain circles (and definitely among music journalists, myself included), are fairly inextricable. LSD and psychedelia will always be mentioned in the same sentence, as will whiskey and rock, and weed and reggae and pop-punk, and ecstasy and EDM. While it's perfectly fine to enjoy these forms

Display of brilliance

I have followed the work of Barlow Palminteri and Nathan Barnes for quite some time, and have written laudatory reviews of each separately, but never have I seen their paintings shown together or in such a huge show as in the current exhibition at The Gallery at Tacoma Community College.

Food great but slow

Announcer: Good food usually trumps all else, but at Mio Sushi, they are pushing it.  The quality of the selections are fresh, authentic, interesting - all worthy of their new location at the hip and trending Point Ruston in Tacoma.  Mio Sushi can't be beat - diners will not be

Top 11 Fourth of July destinations in the South Sound

The 4th of July is coming upon us sooner than you think. For most of us, that's a good thing, as it means barbeques, fireworks and cheap American beer (or root beer, for the young'uns and abstainers out there). When you host the party on the 4th, however, it's a

Ocean Shores: The perfect Northwest beach getaway

Washington beaches get a bad rap. Sure, they may not be year-round paradises of perfect, golden sand and water at a temperature that's actually tolerable, but they're unique in their own way. While you could always opt for a local, more centralized beach like Alki or Golden Gardens in Seattle,
