Peacocks, houses and muses

Lynette Charters' paintings are unique, not just in her use of media - china marker over acrylic paint mixed with plaster - but in her way of painting. On wood panels, she creates fields of heavily textured globs of color that are almost if not completely non-objective, and then either

Announcer: There was a time in Lacey that the Lemon Grass reigned supreme. One of the first finely crafted Asian places in the area, Lemon Grass presented quality ingredients in lovely dishes - hard to beat in an area littered with fast food.  But on a few recent visits, things

Pop with open heart

The saying goes that you have your entire life to write your first album (or book or movie or play or really any creative project) and only a year to write your second. It's through this somewhat unfair algorithm that the phenomenon of the "sophomore slump" emerges: yeah, you were

Call it a comeback

Music history is littered with talented artists that never quite broke through the noise to capture the public's attention - not quite has-beens, more should-have-beens.

Top 5 urban walks in Tacoma

The Northwest is known for many things, among them the fabulous hiking opportunities lurking around every corner - in forests, in parks or in the nearby mountains. And while Northwest nature is tough to top, Tacoma has more to offer walkers and trekkers than beautiful forest hikes (it has those,

There's something wonderfully freeing about "can't." North Cascades Lodge is a place where you can't make or receive a phone call. You can't watch TV in your room. You can't read the newspaper. You can't check email or catch up on Facebook. It's off the grid. It's hard to believe

Galloping Gertie's turns 64

In this era of innovative chefs and exotic ingredients, it's nice to find a place where culinary time has stood still. Where you can still find the kind of home-cooked meals and generous portions families went out for back in the day. Where everybody knew you - and you knew

'2016 Southwest Washington Juried Exhibition'

Upon entering the "2016 Southwest Washington Juried Exhibition" at South Puget Sound Community College, my eyes were immediately drawn to Bernie Bleha's sculpture, "Minaret," acrylic on wood, a colorful tower topped by a playful spire that looks like a tinker toy construction.

Make it yourself

Announcer: You have to love a place that tries hard to do it differently. It doesn't matter if you like it or not, it's fun to be somewhere that is not like anywhere else. The Zodiac Supper Club on St. Helens in downtown Tacoma near the Pantages is all kitsch
