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

Little shop of awesome

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

Things are heating up in the South Sound, with summer officially kicking off and a bevy of outdoor events begins to loom on the horizon. For their part, Olympia is bringing back their annual Music in the Park series of concerts, lasting all summer long. Beginning in July, Music in

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,

There are plenty of different ways to celebrate summer, from attending concerts and big festivals, or taking a do-it-yourself course of action, with a barbeque or picnic accompanied by your friends and family. Of course, for a picnic, you're going to need some ready-to-eat American goodies, and what could be

JBLM spouse helps spice up your barbeque

There are plenty of articles in this special section about different block parties and picnics, or where to find the best food for backyard celebration. Still, some people prefer to do things themselves when it comes to entertaining, and that includes a big barbeque cookout in the backyard. Honestly, keeping

Armed Forces Icon singing contest at Freedom Fair

Spanning over one-and-a-half miles of Ruston Way with food, vendor booths, live entertainment, an air show and - finally - a massive fireworks show at dark, Freedom Fair is the place to be for Independence Day. You won't want for things to do at Freedom Fair, but one area that's still

Still serving - volunteers render final honors to vets

Volunteers are the ultimate participants of democracy; by their actions they demonstrate the best community involvement. "We're about continuing a lifetime of ‘selfless service' to our country," wrote Lt. Col. Richard Waling, chief of staff, 101st Brigade Coordination Team, United States Volunteers - Joint Services Command (USV-JSC), in an email. Currently commanded

Quiet exploration on an island

At 2:30 on a recent Sunday afternoon, the Steilacoom gently nudged into the Anderson Island ferry landing. Driving off the boat, I entered a 7.7-square-mile get-a-way from the hustle of the Pacific Northwest and into history. The southernmost island in Puget Sound, Anderson Island, received its name in 1841 from Navy Capt.

Best South Sound boat rentals

When people live near a beautiful body of water like the Puget Sound, it can become a tradition of sorts to have parties on their boats. Maybe you've thought floating around on a personal vessel sounded cool, but there's just one problem: You don't actually own one. Thank goodness for
