History in an old inn

It's no surprise that the Lewis Army Museum comes with almost 10 decades of history behind it. Built in 1919, the edifice takes the shape of a Swiss Chalet-style structure; it remains the last building from a recreational area called Greene Park called the Red Shield Inn. When World War I ended,

Favorite places for healthy cuisine

Some days it is just plain convenient to grab some fast food when you don't feel like cooking or just don't have the time. But fast food doesn't always have to mean greasy, calorie-packed foods that leave you feeling bloated. There are several local establishments that offer a variety of

Beauty comes from within. At Olympus Spa, a family-owned business dedicated by a husband to his wife as a gift of honoring women, the attitude is that an individual's true beauty can only be achieved when one feels healthy. In other words, this spa pampers women's minds, bodies and spirits. "We offer women

2017 Best of Olympia: Justin Wilkes

If you have a question about wine, chances are Justin Wilkes can answer it. Which wine pairs well with paella (or pad Thai, or pizza)? Could you recommend a bold red for a casual evening at home? A Champagne for a special occasion? Could it be organic? Wilkes runs The Wine Loft in downtown

2017 Best of Olympia: Twenty22Many

Sometimes, the wounds of war are obvious. Missing limbs, broken bones, facial scars can be hard to miss. But all too often, the wounds of war can be hidden scars left on a warrior's soul, invisible to those around them. These injuries can be nearly as devastating and even more

2017 Best of Olympia: StoryOly

"Everyone," said author John Knowles, "has a moment in history which belongs particularly to him." In other words, we each have one or more jaw-dropping stories to tell. Remember that time you embarrassed yourself in front of a celebrity, or let "the one who got away" get away? Maybe you

2017 Best of Olympia: The Brotherhood Lounge

Lots of places could technically be in the running for the "best place to meet someone". Prisons, public transportation, a dark alley - these are all places where you're likely to meet someone, just not necessarily someone you'd like to meet.

2017 Best of Olympia: Ramirez Mexican Store

When I was a boy in Los Angeles, I enjoyed the luxury of taking delicious, homemade Mexican dinners for granted. My father is Mexican-American, so my childhood notion of comfort food was tamales and enchiladas with fresh salsa verde at my auntie Carol, Josie or Lily's house. While theirs may

It takes a hell of a lot of work to keep a music venue going strong, especially one that incorporates all-ages shows and makes risky booking decisions. Even a city as vibrant and artistically-minded as Olympia can fall victim to lackluster attendance, acts of God, and financially ruinous emergencies that

2017 Best of Olympia: Burial Grounds

Don't let the black exterior and the ravens migrating through it bother you. Rather, think of the visual as an entry into a unique experience. With this expectation, it is easy to see that Burial Grounds, a coffee shop located in Olympia since 2010, is the polar opposite of a Starbucks

2017 Best of Olympia: Seven Ways to Get There

Olympia has fantastic theater. Picking the best is nearly impossible, but after much deliberation, I landed on playwright Bryan Willis' riveting play, Seven Ways to Get There, as performed by Theater Artists Olympia (TAO). My reasons are many. First, to acknowledge Willis, a home-grown playwriting genius who is the founder and

2017 Best of Olympia: Linnea's

When looking for the gift shop voted, "Best in Olympia," I didn't expect to find it in the lobby of the Capital Medical Center. With visions of shopworn teddy bears and tired floral arrangements in my head, Linnea's was a pleasant surprise.  The boutique is brightly colored and filled with
