Strings attached

Ah, the power of an apron. It’s a nostalgic thing in my world: I remember reruns of “Leave it to Beaver,” “Ozzie and Harriet” and “The Donna Reed Show” where the perfect mom always had a smile and an apron. I remember making Hungarian baked goods with my mom during the

Erin Rose

We all know a successful holiday season requires one to excel at certain special skills: There’s the one-handed, come-from-behind sale-table grab; the ability to remain perfectly calm while trying to maneuver between two fat ladies, an ocean of package-laden strollers (where’s the baby?) and a Santa line backed up all

Inspired Elegance

Following the reality TV show trend, local designers and creative teams will be under pressure to craft wearable art within a 24-hour period. Former PBS producer Jamie Chase, now of the community art center Tacoma Art Place on Hilltop Tacoma, will film the process for broadcast during the live fashion

Shopping at the drug store

I one-stop shop Commitment is a difficult thing to embrace in the world of cosmetics. A television ad for a sensational new mascara that promises to make my lashes look five times longer, plumper, thicker and natural recently invaded my senses. Of course, skepticism is present, but that doesn’t negate my

ArtsFund Luncheon

“Vibrant.” “Livable.” “Vital.” “Viable.” Not bad, in terms of adjectives used to describe a city where once, the best that could hope for was a local paper deeming it “gritty.” But now, this little, vibrant city of ours that could is being featured in the Smithsonian magazine as one of five places

Lots of singing this week

“sleeping beauty” “Sleeping Beauty,” a stage version of the classic tale complete with a dude in a dragon suit, is a fun show if you have some time to kill. There’s a curse. There’s a spindle. There’s a deep sleep and a charming prince out to rescue the narcoleptic royalty. Tacoma

Festival of Tress, Banff Film Fest and more

THE CONCERT School of Rock While he’s no Dewey Finn, author and activist Derrick Jensen will join the Portland School of Rock band Friday, Nov. 30 as a fund-raiser for the School of Rock scholarship fund. I love kids as much as the next tiki, but truth be told, I was a

Is this jazz?

If the words “Wayne Horvitz is going to play in Olympia” doesn’t mean much, keep reading. A multi-genre veteran, Horvitz and compatriots comprise aptly-named Sweeter than the Day. Offering a breathtaking trip to the event horizon of experimental jazz, blues and a few other categorical clichés, Sweeter than the Day is

MxPx and Jesus

The last time I wrote about Club Impact was on the Weekly Volcano’s blog Spew (www.weeklyvolcanospew.com), and it was in regard to the disturbance complaints being levied against the all-ages venue by neighboring business owners. Though, at the time, I would have told you the intention of my words was

Grammy-winning entertainment machine Queen Latifah is making a reportedly exclusive Northwest stop in ... Tacoma? Yes, not a week after we were blessed with the presence of George Clinton and 420 Funk Mob, another reason to give thanks and praise. Add Queen Latifah Wednesday, Nov. 28, live at the Pantages

Before the Devil Knows You're Dead

Sidney Lumet\'s "Before the Devil Knows You\'re Dead" is such a superb crime melodrama that I almost want to leave it at that. To just stop writing right now and advise you to go out and see it as soon as you can. I so much want to avoid revealing

Fort Lewis spouse a calendar girl

A woman draped in an American flag leaving just enough skin showing to capture some attention isn’t the typical image of a Fort Lewis wife one pictures, but Paige Teakell is proud of the work she does to support the troops. Teakell, also known as Cherry Lane, and two other

Nothing fishy about it

ANNOUNCER: Brewpubs may be a dime a dozen, but Olympia still has one of the best in the state.  The Fish Tale Brewpub, saddled up next to the Fish Brewery, recently donned a new dress. It’s now a gorgeous two-level eatery with plenty of bar space for its unique brews,

Food fight? Hardly

Conventional wisdom would have us believe that the rise of higher-end restaurants in Tacoma during the last few years would leave sour tastes in the mouths of the chefs at the City of Destiny\'s landmark eateries. That wisdom would be wrong. "As a resident of Tacoma, I like to see new
